Villa to spend another £10 million

Recommended Posts

When you are in the position of being in the bottom most teams will do all they can to insure they stay up. With the season ticket freeze the BOD have given up and are realistic that we are down and will not spend

I will remind you of that when they are mentioned AGAIN as why we shouldn't do it properly😃

On a player we’ve been linked with but were never going to pay the asking price.

So you say doing it our way is the right way but if they are cheating ( that needs to be proven ) you think that doesn’t matter ?. It certainly could effect us either this year or next.

They will sell Grealish just before the summer and avoid any FFP issues.

Or simply "sell" their stadium again

Nope, I just don't think that what other clubs get up to is of much interest, particiularly Villa, who although treated us well in the last match of last season, remain a "big" club in the eyes of it's supporters, but a bit like Newcastle, never really live up to that "big club" billing.   We can do things the right way for us and the can rest stew in their own shenanigans and get found out either on the field or by the relevant authorities, or in Villa's case, both.

Lol yeah, buy it back for 1p and then sell it for £100,000,000. But if reports are correct looks like they bought it and then placed it in a holding company linked to Aston Villa FC ( alledgedly ).

I don't know the specifics in this case - but normally it is another company owned by the club owner. This provides them with security as an asset against their loan.

All too dodgy for my liking,  got a feeling that in 4 or 5  years time  we'll  look back and say " jeez , we dodged a bullet there" by just doing our own thing, slowly but  surely strengthening,  improving  quality  and  depth of squad, no major borrowing  for players and wages, no panic ,, just self belief,  determination  and hard work  backed up by an academy  that is churning out players, not just for us and above,but players that will have good careers  at a lower level,  whose sales ,albeit unspectacular  , contribute to the clubs overall ability to  improve. 

Hare and tortoise  springs to mind.

We're  Norwich City....we go our own way.

Even teams like Spurs are now looking to loan players to avoid FFP rules. Eventually the money bubble will burst and then the **** really will hit the fan for many clubs.
