I remember people saying Man City's owners were going to get bored pretty quickly.

I also remember Mazrim arguing they "weren't that rich anyway".

Clubs aren't going to go bust, the likes of Boehly might be nuts, but he's not stupid.

*wink*

Did he really say that about Citeh? Jesus, I remember an article in the Observer I think it was, where they visualised the wealth of their owners against Abramovich in blocks, and the best way I can describe it was like a man standing with one parcel in front of a full Amazon fulfilment centre.

Although that wasn't the worst Mazrimism.

I remember Spurs signing Modric and him being convinced he was a useless 'show pony' of a signing.

In fairness, I remember thinking that Liverpool kid Gerrard was just a thug that was never gonna be a good footballer

I miss Mazrim. For a wee man he had plenty of fight. A real Jack Russell of a poster.

Is he still on there? He's one of the few I remember, along with you and Mantis.

Mark Fletcher and Mazrim were a great combo.
Wel lost some great posters during the desperate Villa decade of the 2010s.

Random thought just now.

Work on the new North Stand starts "in the spring", which I assume means no North Stand for the next two seasons whilst the new one is being built.

Which means it's going to be largely impossible for non ST holders to get tickets to matches as our capacity will be down 7k or so, which is more or less current capacity minus away seats minus season ticket holders.

Your random thought has just given me a random thought.

Another 18% price hike for season tickets?
