Story in the Athletic that H Hodgson was involved in a consortium that tried to buy the club of Lerner.

Classic Randy. Agreed to sell the club for £150m in 2015. Changed his mind at the last minute. Sold the club in 2016 instead. For £76m.

It was Daddy Lerner who was the businessman and built a fortune. Randy was a lawyer who spent a fortune.

 He did get £30m when we were promoted though, didn't he (Xia baled out by NotSafeForWork Ltd.)? Still...quite a haircut.

Nothing compared to the haircut he got with his shares in Bank of America, the main payment for the sale of his credit card business. It goes a long way to explain why he suddenly stopped throwing money at Villa. Can't say I blame him, if memory serves BoA shares dropped 80% in value.

For those naysayers doubting the genius of HH, you can read his Blueprint for the future here:

https://bellsareringing.forumotion.com/t935-howard-hodgson-blueprint-for-the-future-of-aston-villa

Essentially appoint a manager as good as Arsène Wenger and beat other clubs to the best young European talent and all will be well.  Mind blown.

Wasn't there also talk of an expensive divorce settlement and Ma Lerner imploring Randolph to cease keeping Richard Dunne in gourmet sausage rolls?

Is Tony still punting out MSG or has he driven his Mondeo completely off into the twilight?

Apparently the divorce wasn't much of a factor, but the rest of the family did reportedly tell Randy that he was spending a bit too much of their inheritance on that Limey football club. There were other factors as well.

I remember reading about another investment company that he'd put money into, only for the two really unqualified individuals he's got to run it lose everything.

He kept that quiet.





Just not on Twitter.

He's got a yacht BTW.

And he used to be an actor.

Not to mention his time in Spandau Ballet.
Is it true he was in 80s classic Howard's Way?

And a judge to then describe it as being run like a frat house?

Correct, and he had about $2.5 billions worth.
