They added a twitter panel to the front page and set it to display anything with hashtag #avfc.

Which led to lots of naughty messages on the OS

Positive feedback regarding the safe standing trials.
Maybe the new North Stand could be a safe standing end. Personally would love to see a Holte End 2 there, but i know the corporate boxes will be a priority.

It won't football is moving away from corporate boxes and towards high end seating and pre and post game facilities, I see no reason why we won't do the same.

Ha ha yeah, that was my recollection, for some reason nobody other than you and I seemed so taken by it, but it was very, very funny indeed.

Just heard an interesting fact, since 1992 (the start of the Premier league era) the most profitable club in the history of the premier league is Spurs - £400 million in profit

I would imagine our losses for the seasons we have been in Premier league are huge

We are 3rd highest in losses per season, since the premier league began

I know that Abramovich was paying £900k a week into Chelsea

We have made some terrible business decisions

Poor managerial appointments with even worse player recruiting  with minimal resale.

Also our managing to have largely flat commercial revenue at a time we had a quarter of a century unbroken right to print money as member of a league with commercial revenues going through the roof.

That's the bit Lerner never seemed to understand. Ellis probably understood it but was out of his depth.

I donít think Ellis understood it at all. He was happy playing at being tallest dwarf in the Midlands and that was it. Blinded by the size of his ego.

Lerner didnít get it either, his whole time at Villa was just an exercise in museum curation.

CL and PW sum up why we have spent a fortune and finished below newly promoted Brentford and little old Brighton. I think the current regime is improving things but, in all honesty and Ratboy aside, not by much on the player side of things. We still seem to pay top dollar and sell cheap. The fact we now sell out Villa Park, as opposed to the days when 30,000 was a reasonable crowd, hopefully means we will increase overall revenue but isn't all the shirt and tat sales dwarfed by TV money?
