Contenders? You Bet!

Contenders? You Bet!
I would say I am most notable for my whinging on the Vital Villa message board - just ask Deano and Glensider ;-)

BUT I woke up this morning and went into a deep thought. Could we really be title contenders ?

You know what ?! I reckon we will be.

Developments at Villa Park are coming thick and fast.

The headline that Nike are making our kit next season is fantastic, although Fear and me tried really hard to sway them into having the old Adidas trefoil and an 80's kit design that could also accommodate fatties such as myself.

Couple this with the development of the training ground into one of the best around.

What we've seen so far with our new signings has been top quality ! I hold my hands up in saying Bardsley was a waste of time but I have been proved wrong there. To think that this summer is going to be one of the most exciting in years makes me wish this season was over !

I do truly believe Martin O'Neill is the man to take us forward. Its taking time for the jigsaw to come together but its going to be well worth it in my opinion. He gets the best out of players and imagine the quality he will bring in to make the team even better ?

Exciting times lie ahead and I believe he will make the team into title contenders and be the surprise side next year. He'll get the players in early in order to get everyone acquainted etc etc and then push on !

A new sponsor is all we are waiting on. I like the Nike kit idea but it would be nice to find a big British sponsor instead of going totally American. If MON gets who he wants then everything will click together nicely and I do honestly believe we'll be up there challenging.

Hold your horses? Why? The foundations of the club are being relaid. Training ground, CEO, shirt manufacturer, scouting network, Holte hotel, forward looking chairman, excellent manager, new players, established players re-signing contracts (they wouldn't have under Ellis) happy staff, free travel, ticket incentives, honouring of past glory, Ron Saunders on the pitch, communication with the fans from the whole of the senior management team.................... please can someone carry on what I've missed!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome iomvilla - your views will be very welcome......On Villa's future, lets run before we can walk. I agree long term we will be back on track for regular European football and challenging teh top 4 for honours, but it won't happen overnight, and there will be setbacks. I think the summer will be interesting. Wanting a player and being able to afford him does not guarantee we will get him.......So far so good and lets look forward to a Claret and Blue future.

make the most of it with tonights 0-1 reversal against Spain, article on Huddersfield site 2night McClaren Manager or Muppet, think we have the answer, the clamour to replace McClaren will keep growing, and a lot of fans me included want O'Neill for England. U lucky guys have got 1 of the best managers around.
