No doubt any new system would be designed to protect the Man United and Juventus types of this world and prevent any potential challengers to the establishment.

I think that's exactly how it works. Even against challenging clubs with rich owners like us.

The only hope is that the ESL bid has pissed off UEFA so much that they do everything they can to undermine those clubs, which could benefit the likes of Villa.

The ESL could be those clubs' "Ratner moment". Fingers crossed, anyway.

Did Deano describe our potential target list as exciting last week.

All this stuff about Leicester being a well-run club after the result today just makes me think...I don't care who you sign, just get it right this time.

Leicester have sold all of Kante, Mahrez, Maguire and errrrr Drinkwater in last 5 years. Had a drop off after winning the league and quickly sacked Ranieri then decided Shaky wasn't a number one and Puel was too boring and underachieving so they haven't kept unsuitable managers in jobs for long and Rodgers was a masterstroke.

They're basically as far away from what we did from 2010 onwards as you can get...selling key players and replacing them with total rubbish which meant we quickly dropped from 6th to 16th (while pretty much brainwashing the fanbase we could do little about it) and Paul Lambert somehow staying in the job for nearly three full seasons.


I will never forget the disappointment of going from challenging for the top four three year's straight to fighting relegation and assembling a 'young and hungry' team of players I hadn't heard of signed from the Championship and League One*.

* I know this is a slight exaggeration and it's the nature of the football pyramid but 2011-2015 there were some really poor signings and a staggering number of them made a lot of appearances for us.

What really annoys me about the Leicester story is that they collapsed into League One, messed around trying to get back up, managed it, should have gotten relegated again, had a mad manager and a massive scandal, hired a has-been and still won the Premier League. We fannied around for ages and the best we got was a whipping in the Cup Final.

We sold Benteke and replaced him with Rudy Gestede. Everyone knew how limited he was, 1 season of heading in the Championship was all he ever amounted to. A shitter replacement I can't recall us ever making.

We could look back the sides from 80-82 and cry all night at what we replaced those heroes with

When we sold Andy Gray he said Wolves were heading in a different direction to Villa. How right he was. Swings and roundabouts sometimes.

I totally agree with you I'm shedding a tear just thinking about it.

£260m to spend this summer according to reports.  Should be enough for Kane and Son.

That is serious dosh. This really feels like The Summer where we could seriously be the real deal.

We need to make sure we spend it wisely.

That's an insane amount of dollar. We won't spend that much. If we did, we'd be looking at top 4 as a minimum.

May be an insane sum but thinking it over we need to show we are as ambitious as JG is otherwise he will be looking elsewhere. It's not the purchase price but the wages we will have to pay to get the players we need.

Wow, if the £260 million is a true figure then we can expect to sign some of the best players available

Forget Abraham we need to sign the guys who are going to take us into the top 4 of this league
