So here is a question for the accountants of the parish...The Nassef family is reported worth £40 billion. Suppose he invests £200m in the villa. Say I have £1m in the bank. What would my equivalent investment be ?

If you get your hand in your pocket and invest that in my Sunday team I guarantee I'd return you the Sutton Sunday league title within two seasons. And the Adam Dauncey Cup for good measure.

Off topic Lee but, could you give me some background on Adam Dauncey please?  My reason for asking is due to the fact that an Adam Dauncey was in the same class as my daughter when they started school at the Holy Name Great Barr, they were pictured in the Mail on their first day at school.  I'm not sure but I think he lived on Hampstead Road.  Cups named after individuals are usually memorial trophies aren't they?

You're right in respect of them being memorial, but other than that I don't know anything regarding the history of it other than I sliced an own goal into the top corner the last time I played in it.

Swaris fortune has increased by approximately one Randy Lerner in the past few months. He's added $1.5bn onto his lot.

I wonder if their planning in only doing some exterior tarting up  to the North Stand is because they want to tackle the question of upgraded facilities, higher capacity and potentially whole new ground (which might mean new location) properly rather than invest a very large sum in rebuilding the stand now?

Is this a ticking-over measure to buy us time to think more about it, and get a better idea of what we really need?

Have to say, that new Everton ground looks like exactly what I'd want us to have if we had a new ground. The combination of brick and steel is brilliant and evocative of old grounds.

Yes that new Everton ground looks like it will be brilliant.  I know that Villa Park is home, but if you think that most of the stands and facilities are actully pretty shit, I wouldn't be averse to a shiny new ground at all, as long as it wasn't a bland identikit effort like Stoke for example.

The facilities in the Trinity Rd are not too bad, and i haven't been in the Holte since it was rebuilt so have no idea, but the other two stands have truly dreadful facilities.
