Fans deserve better Ian. Its a real testament to the loyalty of the fans that despite 4 years on the spin of failure and struggle we still average 36,000 crowds. However without a takeover this summer or a continuation of the way the club has been run we will see a big drop next season.
The good news is I am convinced a takeover will happen and us fans can start to enjoy it again.

What a brilliant thread this is.
Howard do you have any idea if RL got to read your letter or do you think PF binned it ?
When the revolution comes (and if you were invited), would you have time to help/advise with a seat on the board.  With your love of the club, it's fans and it's history coupled with your undoubted business acumen, you could offer your expertise and be the fans link to the owners.

I'd do it with pleasure for free.. I've told Lerner that in the past but not interested. I'd be more than happy to make time for the new owners but they probably won't need me as with a bit of luck they will learn from Lerner's mistakes.
As for the letter I don't know. He had replied to another one in the past and Faulkner assured me both Lerner and Lambert had seen it and were furious about it!  :evil: Not sure why? It was pretty reasonable and all has panned out as predicted.

Indeed.. Especially one who has had a season ticket for 34 years and the last 2 years sponsored many games and spent thousands in corporate hospitality.. Faulkner instead spoke to me like a naughty school boy. Not professional at all.

I am the one, although I do not profess expertise, merely an observant eye and a reasonably analytical mind!

Had I known that you 'knew' me, I would have introduced myself at the Cardiff away game. I was on the table next to yours Very Happy

That was my Father and brother (Jamieson).. I did not go to that game..

I don't know you but your posts on VT (a site I never visit) are famous for sightings of Lerner's jet and often make it to my twitter feed. Anyway nice to make your acquaintance.

If you read some of the stuff (Some is on here) I have written in last 3 months I also have analytical mind.. UTV

Ah ha. I recognised your father. It was a good one to miss anyway.
Likewise, and I hope that some of your analyses come true. Having renewed my season ticket without any expectation of anything better, I am hoping to be proven wrong. UTV

Welcome aboard trees. I know you received a little flak for your observations. Could really do with that info in the coming days. Are you willing to share on here? Any info greatly received. Nice to see you still posting anyway.

I tweeted you H but really sorry to hear about poor Bozzie, hope he fights and is better soon mate

Thanks
If you stick your head above the parapet, there are always people who like to take pot shots, as Howard will testify. Fortunately I have a few friends who made a few quid on the back of my postings.

I continue to observe. If I see anything that potentially matches up I will share on here and VT.

Any sign of him yet?
Unusual for a bloke who spends all his time in the Directors Box that he is on the board of AVST.

Thought I would give you a few months, Howard. At the Blues game, was that Peaky Blinders outfit some sort of fancy dress? Very good if it was, although quite a few people thought you looked a prat.

I notice that you represent the Aston Villa Supporters Trust, Howard. Well done. What are you taking forward at your next meeting with the Club? I'm sure that you will already have on your list the diabolical service at kiosks around the ground, but if not, please raise it. I ordered a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape and had to wait ages for it.
