I notice Emi cites Villa’s ambition as a key factor

Recommended Posts

In his move.

Do you not think top 26 and being a stepping stone for players to move on to bigger clubs was enough?

Was he not aware that our club is so much better than everyone else and we're well respected in the community unlike those horrible nasty clubs with money?

I'm surprised you've only just noticed he said it.

Has any signing anywhere ever not gushed about a combination of the new club’s ambition, squad, fans, stadium, facilities, glorious history? 

Suspect it means as little (or as much)  when they do it here as when they do it at their next club. Other than that it makes us feel good for a bit, and that it might actually be a bit odd if they didn’t have something positive prepared for when they’re inevitably asked.

To be fair, alternatively, he could have praised their generous pay and rewards structure, which would be truthful but not go down too well. Or their recent footballing successes and trophies... which would be both unpopular and untrue.

‘Ambition’ feels about right for the situation.

Surely he should have mentioned their history? 😉

We have zero ambition beyond looking good and being respected in the community. Those are not bad in themselves but really need to be matched on the pitch, which, to me seems to be more and more becoming secondary by the day.

We all know our club has zero ambition and won’t have under the current ownership 

why would any player with ambition to win a big trophy ever stay or join us

Well... I think he is more likely to pinch a domestic cup and sneak into European competition at Villa than he is at Norwich.

What else could he achieve here? Realistically? How many more times does he want to win the second tier?

Is constantly posting your miserablist crap the height of your ambitions - I'm sure that you can do so much better with a really 'big' club elsewhere 🙄

Are you as easily led in real life? Life is full of questions...

I'd suggest the ambition one is probably also true.

Ps C.I.D.. why don't you go follow Crewe or Wycombe? Being top 26 would be a real achievement for them and you..🤪

I love Emi, and he is clearly a better player today than he was two seasons ago, but we saw how he played at the Premier League level in 2019-2020. One goal and seven assists in 36 appearances. 

All this talk of "ambition" is just talk.

Yeah great example in this thread, we’ll never sign players like Buendia and if we did we would never get 3 good years out of him and a big payoff

Hence about right- true enough and encouraging to their fans
