Edens, so hitched to short term stardem that he's been bankrolling the hoovering up of every good 16 year old in the country and gutting the Stripey Academy for all its earthly possessions.

I'm only saying that I do believe he only came along with, let us not forget, his considerably wealthier partner because he saw the potential of Grealish far beyond an ability to draw defenders. And until he invites me round for tea and tells me otherwise to my face, I'll remain convinced of my belief.

I've always felt Grealish was the only reason Edens got involved.

The Grealish who'd played two half-seasons in the Championship and even his own supporters were doubting? That Grealish?


No, not that one. The other one, the one he eventually became, the one on the cusp of captivating the planet, the one that would've, should've been. That one.

I'll readily accept that Edens is a better judge of potential than many of us. We just judge footballers by their ability. There's more to superstardom than that.

So it was the Grealish nobody outside Birmingham had heard of?

some people over at VT ( I know) claim they have heard that Edens wants out.

Good griefÖIs Wilma on VT too?

Just search ďItís a disgraceĒ over and over, that should get you the answer.

Anyway, itís was page 666 before that rumour surfaced here, so Iíll take that as a good sign.

I cannot tell if youíre joking.  Iím as certain that i can be that a very rich bloke in America would not invest £100s of millions based on the possible success of a young brummie lad.


Nope, not joking. As far as I can tell, his sole foray into sports prior to us is his investment in the Bucks, but primarily in Giannis. I think he saw a similar opportunity to follow the same strategy here with him.

Not too worried, I think we have other up-and-coming superstars that'll keep him interested in a similar vein.

As stretches go, that  really is one hell of a stretch. You really believe they bought us and will stay interested based on one player? When they bought us Grealish was a bit part player with a very dodgy off field history. Not much else.

like everybody else iíve had too many years of sorrow and disappointment following the Villa over the years
25 years since we last won a major trophy is ridiculous because I still believe we are a massive club

Problem I have is I swallowed the pill
When the new owners came in i totally bought into them 100%
This was what Iíd been waiting for, Real owners with pots of money and lots of ambition
Getting out of the shitty league that we were in was just the first hurdle and it wasnít going to be a problem as we were the biggest richest club in there and so it proved

The project, Grealish, European football, massive investment, wheehey hold onto your seats as one famous poster said
Grealish was the setback a big setback but Iím still believing in or in the project
So when I now hear we canít compete with the top teams yet, even struggling against newly promoted teams, or weíll be lucky to finish mid table, or Everton with a manager thatís been there five minutes are further ahead then we are, iím not accepting it, I wonít accept it because this is our time and Iím not giving up yet Iíve waited too long

Any player or manager or coaching staff that doesnít Believe or arenít good enough to compete for European football in the next couple of years needs to be moved on and letís get people in that do ( and thatís not a dig at Smith as heíll be given time to prove that he can )
I thought we could do it this year but the Grealish thing might have put paid to that, But we still have the money weíre still the biggest club in the Midlands so this is no time for dumbing down or adjusting the bar lower

Iíve said before every post i make is with a view of Villa being a top six side in the near future
Thatís why I argue against all the excuses and why we canít, iím more interested in why we can
Iím still believing I donít care what it takes to get there

Interesting article and you certainly see the echos and similarities.

I'd only add that there's a perception of fragility about everything and how we are constantly left with one shot. Every game is must win and every failure to do so a catastrophe.
