If he doesn't do that we're in for a rough and possibly disastrous season.

Don't tell me we've got a stronger squad than last season .... we haven't at the moment. We might have three new guys who will help us, but who the hell is going to score the 40 goals plus to keep us clear of the relegation zone?

why would he change his mind tho, twice, and make himself look a right twat? don't make sense, he was told about takeover plans and when they collapsed he then changed his mind

He changed his mind cause he's got no integrity. Simple as that. Making excuses for his behaviour is stupid. He even tried to put some blame on Richards do you not think he'd say if it was takeover related? He's showed he doesn't care what the fans think. Anyway he's history now.

@jvilla wrote:Well it sounds and feels like Randy is no longer calling the shots, whether he's handed that over to Fox or someone else is to be confirmed. But, getting rid of so many players would give Randy of the last 3 years a massive nosebleed, because he knows he'd have to replace them. The clear-out has been authorised, and it must indicate there are funds a plenty to restock the playing staff with a better quality player - otherwise why bother.

That's a sound argument and I really hope you are right, personally I think somethings going on no idea what it is though, the next couple of weeks will tell us. Laughing

So Lerner has just landed at BHX -

Is it

a) to congratulate Sherwood on selling the clubs prized assets - whereby he will leave with his plane full of cash
b) to inform us all who the new chairman is
c) to actually give us some grain of hope with a takeover.


With Lerner it is probably a) - Thanks Tim for the 40mill from Delph and Benteke - now here is a 100 note - nip down the park and pick up a replacement aye?

In all seriousness I just hope he provides some clarity on our forwards direction. To be honest screw the takeover, I would be happy if he issues a statement saying who the chairman is and Sherwood has significant funds to build the team he wants. While I want a takeover that is not the immediate concern. The primary concern is getting a squad that can compete. Days are slowly ticking down.

Yeah i just saw from the trees that he has landed in Brum. Hopefully we will now get an idea of what is going on!

I said last year i thought he had no intention to sell the club and was using this as a tactic to take the pressure of both himself and Lambert at the time as he knew he needed to drag things back. I still think this is the most likely scenario although like most i cling to the hope we get a nice takeover.

If he is staying i can only hope he starts again and we get the RL that bought the club as that was exciting times, just a shame we got a manager that wasted most of it!

I'd be happy with him staying if he says to Tim, you can have the full 40m from these sales, plus 30m from the TV rights this season (not sure on what our actual figure was??), that will give Tim 70m+ to spend and with that we can really make strides towards the top half again!!

We can but hope...

Just read the TV rights next season means the bottom club would receive 99m....

how could Villa not be an attractive buy for 150m...

As i said, if he doesn't come out saying it's sold now then he never had any intention of selling...

Interesting this is for me.

As he never turned up when he appointed Tom Fox then I doubt very much he would put in an appearance for the appointment of a new chairman either. In my opinion he is either here for takeover related purposes, or he has flown in to try and personally persuade Benteke to stay!

Where is the information about randys falcon N85DN location being BHX? Is trees? Working for ground movements or tower ATSU? Is the aircraft stood at the elmdon hard standing?
Just interested, coincides with the exclusivity suggested end date.
Is there someone at bodymoor or VP that can confirm Randys on site etc?

Knowing (well his clueless behaviour on lots of things VIilla related)  Lerner this is probably what he is doing, racing to where CB is/was having his medical - only the fool would go to the wrong doctors - walk out and see Benteke on the other side of the street shaking hands with Ian Ayre, contract in hand.

I'll put it down to his age (try and remember what you were like at 20-something) and a sugarbag agent in his ear.

With the £32.5 million, I would like for us to gamble for once, and try make a bid from a superstar like Lewandowski, Illarramendi or Dzeko. 8)

This is his second visit in a number of weeks.

It's becoming a habit!

No show for years, then 2 visits in a matter of weeks. Something is brewing. It almost shows he's interested??

I've got a feeling this is it. its either a complete takeover or its serious investment. I think the "snake" U-turn was the straw that broke the camels back.

So hard to say really.

Is he just checking in with the team / new signings before the season kicks off?

"Lads I'm still trying to sell, I'm gutted we've lost Delph and Benteke, but we must kick on. I'll be investing to replace them. Welcome to the new lads." Etc etc. Could just be a pep / motivational chat for the new season?

I will tell you know - if Judas clearing off has caused Lerner to accept an offer or seriously reinvest in the team again - then no one better boo him ever period. If that snake leaving has caused the greatest positive thing that could happen to villa then they need to be casting a statue of him at the gates of VP right now!!!!!

I'm still hopeful of a takeover. But I don't think this visit from Lerner will come to anything, with regard to news for the fans. The next we'll hear is that he's flown back out and then we won't hear anymore of it.

Nothing feels right now for a takeover of the club.

I would imagine Lerner's arrival in Brum today is purely in-house business.........Would love to be wrong of course:lol:

At least with Randy popping in so infrequently you can pretty much guarantee when he is here it's for something of significance.

With you here Jamie. No way he pops over to "say hi"...I remember he came over last summer didn't he?...just after the "I'm staying" announcement.
We've had nothing from him to suggest plan B is being implemented yet...so I am gonna hope he is here in connection to plan A!
