Do you honestly think that Mcginn / Mings / Grealish / Luiz etc. will want to play in the championship - not a chance, they will be looking for a way out as soon as relegation is confirmed.

The policy of the club was to buy players who would have a sell on value, and that is what we will be doing.

The players who know that they wont get the money they get paid at Aston Villa anywhere else, will be the one's we are left with, such as- Lansbury / Hourihane

The “ we will be ok if we go down” is fantasy, we won’t. This squad is not set up too deal with Division 2 and the heart will be ripped out of it.We will end up with some expensive, cant get rid of players which does nothing for squad harmony and togetherness and need to replace many key players.
As well as the psychological blow you have the huge reorganisation required.
We then have the worry concerning our owners appetite.

Thanks, probably where I am.

I think the frustrating thing is that if we'd have been as organised since January as we were today, and in truth have been for most of the restart, we'd be a couple of points better off and a lot more hopeful.

We've taken two points in 5 games, so I'm not sure how that really translates into any more points, as we just don't look like scoring.  We were fairly well organised yesterday but errors costs us dear again, and that's been the case all season.

The new owners. Just as crap as the last owners.

It's all about opinions I suppose but that is just utter nonsense and one of the more bizarre things I've read on here over the years.

Do you honestly think our gazillionaire owners give a shit either about the money or whether a players "wants" to stay or not.

They're contacted to the club unless they have release clauses. I'd be telling them that they've got one season to get us back up and show what they're capable of. If they arse around no one else will want them so they'll be motivated to get us back up.

In an ideal world, that would be great but what's the point in keeping players if they don't want to be there? I'd imagine one or two have relegation clauses as well if it comes to that.

You thought that the chances of us going into administration were similarly crazy, I seem to recall, so with with all due respect, I'll take your opinion with a pinch of salt.

All the new owners have done so far is buy the club, put a poorly functioning management structure in place, waste a huge amount of money, and get us relegated.  Exactly the same as Lerner, just in double quick time.

They have also pumped in a shit load of money behind the scenes as well. If it wasn't for them coming in when they did, I dread to think what would have happened. It's not been a great season obviously, but the owners are last on my list to have a pop at.

If we get relegated I can't imagine any of Mcginn, Grealish or Mings staying. The fact they are contracted doesn't really make any difference other than meaning we will get some cash for them, which would probably less than we would get for them if we stayed up and they were sold.

Well done them on being rich enough to buy a club.  All owners who turn out to be crap, do that.  Lerner did exactly the same, and isn't regarded very fondly now.

I'm glad that they bought us when they did so they have my support.

I support Aston Villa not a couple of billioanires who haven't done a very good job this season.

Risso, you know how it works, they appointed a CEO and the structure worked last season. This season it hasn’t, I am not sure what they could have done other than asking some searching questions as we went into the Jan window. They must have believed the answers they got.
I think the blame rests squarely with Purslow  Pitarch and Smith.
I just hope they don't lose interest like Lerner did.

I support Aston Villa as well, and everyone connected with the club.

You must have missed them getting us promoted.
