1. Yes Ads, another series (or two) of The Sopranos.
2. If we're that skint, maximise use of home-grown players wherever possible.
3. Improve scouting to get better kids and ready-made signings.
4. Employ a manager who will play technically sound attacking football.
5. Legalise smoking at Villa Park.
6. Give fanzine sellers those little huts that the programme sellers get.

1. Sack McLeish
2. Find a buyer for the club
3. Find a buyer for the club
4. Find a buyer for the club
5. Stop wanking over that letter from Alex Ferguson, his dick must look like a 3 month old Peperami by now.

What 5 simple things should Randy next season do to win us all over again? They could be simple... they could be grand... they could include gestures... Here's mine.

1) Sack McLeish. We're going nowhere with him other than down. Put KMc and GC in until the end of the season. They couldnt do any worse. Choose his replacement carefully and don't blink 'til you've got your man. He needn't be Mourinho, but he needs to be talented and inspiring. Previous considerations need not apply.

2) Lower the price of season tickets/tickets. More bums on seats... more meat pies sold... better atmosphere etc.

3) Sort the home kit out. No squares... chevrons... stripes or non Villa colours. Ditto the away kit. Top tip... more people will buy the replica shirt if it is tasteful. And can we have our old badge back please?

4) Dump Heskey and learn the lessons well.

5) Sack Faulkner. He's not a football man, he's arrogant, doesn't know what he's doing and he's taking us on a road to nowhere. Appoint a football man... there must be a few around. Pay top dollar to get him. It will be worth it in the long run.
Comment 5.
Jimmy Coombes springs to mind, ex Villa goalkeeper for those who don't know, done a fantastic job at LancashireCCC

Comment 3.
Which old badge would you go for?

1) Invent time travel
2) Return to 2006
3) Tell MON you will not give him complete control of the club
4) Make sure Young, Milner, Cahill, have buy out clauses of 100 million on their 8 year contracts.
5) Build a sizable trophy room.

1. Get a manager that sends the team out to try to win every game with attacking football. We don't mind losing to better teams as long as we give them a game.
2. Get a football man in to look after the day to day running of the club.
3. Sell some proper beer inside the ground.
4. Make the Lower Holte a safe standing area.
5. Life bans for anyone singing that Paul McGrath song. It never was funny.
5a. Reopen The Aston Tavern.

Randy should:
1) Put his left leg in
2) Put his left leg out
3) In, out,
4) In, out,
5) and he should undoubtedly shake it all about

If he doesn't fancy that, he could continue to ignore the hundreds of interchangeable internet threads.


Off topic..

That's at least seven things

All great points TLP, except that bit in bold.   This is Aston Villa and the aim of the game, surely, is that we are one of the better teams?

I would just like to see Randy hand over custodianship of the club to people who can get us winning again.

If anyone thinks Randy should sell, be careful what you wish for.

Just watched The Four Year Plan on iPlayer.  The story of QPR under Flavio Briatori, Bernie Ecclestone, Paladini, Aggag and the Mittal brothers.  A great fly on the wall football documentary that should be essential viewing for every football fan.

The Mittal brothers who took control, but then lost it to Fernandes came out with great credit.  Let's hope Briatore never gets anywhere near the Villa.

Appoint a DoF with a long term plan and style for the club.

Get board members with football nouce.

Improve our scouting network significantly.

Sell the Cleveland Browns and concentrate solely on the villa.

Start a genetic engineering and cloning programme to unleash an army of super soldier footballers.

Randy should go to the Sty on a goodwill visit. He falls down the stairs of their derelict stadium and sues small heath for millions. We spend the millions on players while they go into administration. An all round winning situation.

1. Remind all coaching staff that we can watch shit football for free in the local park
2. Remind all players that for the money they earn they are expected to be able to control, pass and shoot on target
3. Plant a row of fast growing conifers in front of the away section
4. Play Ajax away every pre-season
5. Buy Sunderland, just for a laugh!
