You canít put Steve Stride in the clown list. He was a loyal servant to the club for years.

Itís very harsh to include Steve Stride in that list, he was a Villa man to the core and was respected throughout the game.

Correct - Steve Stride does not belong in that list

He was acknowledged as one of the best administrators in football

And Hollis found us a buyer.  Okay he wasnít a very good buyer but his subsequent near bankruptcy lead to our current owners so respectí.

Steve Stride was a very good administrator. Heíd certainly warrant inclusion in our current set up, no doubt about it.

Wasn't Mark Ansell the CEO in those times when Stride was here? Or was that even Ellis himself? Stride had good contacts in the game, only disappointment was he voted for Wimbledon to move to Milton Keynes, think that was after he left us.

In recent times Paul Faulkner was someone way overpromoted and think that's seen by what Purslow acts. Hopefully he's in CEO role for a few more years yet.

I liked the bit when he said that Jack wanted CL football ďnowĒ. Rather than in the future.

Yes I thought that too, our owners are definitely up for this arenít they. We do seem to have a plan, now we need Smith to make it work.

Ansell was finance director and probably on his way to becoming CEO until he resigned when Bruce Langham got the job (briefly). Stride was generally regarded as the best admin man in football, although he would admit himself that the public-facing aspect of the CEO's job wasn't for him. He was here when the Wimbledon decision was made, although he said later that they hadn't been given anything like the full facts and was just told that it was Milton Keynes or extinction. Faulkner was inexperienced and not helped by the fact that he looked about fourteen and had no other football experience around him.

Faulkner also nicked my taxi that Iíd booked after one game. The arse.

What i found interesting was how he didnt wish jack well at the end.
I thought that was well judged. Not all Villa supporters do wish him well, and whilst Purslow indicated that Grealish had in fact behaved honourably, to wish him well would have unnecessarily antagonised those that donít.

Is it me or does the video by Purslow have a single remarkably coincidental glitch in the middle of Grea-lish which makes it 100% sound like Greed-lish? I canít help but think a Villa fan in VillaTV has deliberately done that. I presume this has been discussed somewhere?

More likely the subtitles are added automatically, but it's not infallible and makes mistakes. Subtitling a video is a time-consuming job and so I suspect it was automated.

Itís not subtitles, itís the audio. Right at the v start, 10 seconds in. Listen to it! (It might be one of those things that you hear what you are looking for, though Iím less the type for name calling / not sure Iíd even come across that nick name. Donít think this was £greed btw, drive/greed for success>loyalty sure)
