Get the feeling they've held back on big time spending until they felt the various pieces were in place, but now feel those are now in place. Time to kick on.

Are they likely to pursue another Alemany character in the short term?  I guess they are but won't wait to spend the money.

Emery said as much, and I did see someone say that the Real Sociedad Sports Director was our first choice. You would imagine we had more than 1 or 2 people in mind, and we've probably moved onto the next one already.

Great to see both owners there today.  Noticeable that Purslow was nowhere to be seen

He was in the directors' box as usual. When Nas and Wes went down to see Emery and the players, he stayed in the box with Ian Taylor and Ahmed Elmohamady.

I donít think heís going anywhere and the right people were on the pitch. The owners had to have loved the atmosphere today and must be elated at just how things have panned out with Emery. I am sure he will get the support he needs, because what they saw today is just the start. Aston Villa chasing trophies in front of a packed ground and Villa Park in full voice on a European night is something else.

And if he had gone down he'd no doubt have been accused of muscling in on Emery's and the players' celebrations.

Just been made aware that it's been almost 5 years since NSWE came in.

A big thank you to our wonderful owners for saving our club and bringing the good times back to VP.

Maybe first home game of the new season there could be a thank you banner?

Potential for best owner / manager combo in our history? Even when we were great in the late 70s / early 80s, that was almost more in spite of the ownership than because of it?

If it's true Nassef Sawiris stepped in to sack Gerrard then personally brought Unai here he must be at least halfway to a statue now.

Can we have one of Gerrard to throw eggs at?

There's no 'almost' about it. How Steptoe & his idiot son ended up running the European champions is one of the great mysteries of the modern age.

£156m for finishing 7th and another £3m from West Ham for Danny Ings, owing to them stopping up.

I feel yesterday will have renewed the owners (if it was ever required) and really give them the energy to help us kick on again.

We are back.
