I returned to live in England last year after 4½ years in America and I have such a sour taste in my mouth that anything from the Useless States of America has anything to do with Aston Villa.
With Americans the answer is pure and simple, if they get a quick return on their investments then they're happy but if they don't then the shit will hit the fan and we will all regret Lerner buying the club. Let's hope he does get a quick return and we don't see the Villa sold off down to the bare bones as Lerner tries to take too much too soon.
Another problem is Lerner's funding for Adolf Bush and the Republicans as this will surely make Villa Park a target for the vast multitude of people that despise America because of its overseas policies to aim their anger towards and which will happen purely because of whom now owns it. Let's hope that there's no terrorist agenda in the future because of this point on whom now owns Aston Villa.
I believe that Aston Villa should NOT have been sold to some arsehead American who's simply trying to grab a piece of something that has a history to make up for everything else he owns that has not.
Why on Earth the offer from Neville wasn't accepted is a mystery......keeping Aston Villa completely English surely has more appeal to me.
On a final note: Lerner should not have been allowed to buy Aston Villa due to him being so bloody ugly! He would walk any audition for a part in The Bash Street Kids --as 'Plug'--
Wayne - I must admit those are exactly my feelings - you just put it in a better way :-) I would have loved to have had a Villa fan taking over - this isn't just some club, it's what has made generations of us laugh, scream and cry and I simply can't see an American understanding any of that. In fact I doubt if he can even understand anyone from Birmingham :-) Still - if we get some new players and have a good run I doubt anyone will complain - including me.
