Out of interest, did anyone put their tickets up for sale for the Brentford game only for the ticket not to sell? The same happened to me with the Wolves game.

I've also noticed the club don't seem bothered about reporting attendances.

The Wolves and Brentford gates are like state secrets, while the club didn't report the Ajax gate (although it was reported on BBC).
I put mine up for sale for Wolves and Brentford, neither sold . Generally mine has sold through the season. (work contract has kept me away this season mainly).

That tartan paint won't collect itself!
I'm on the Sky Hooks contract this year  .

... and yet, financially, we're still eons away - partly because of the London factor and partly because ManUre and Liverpool particularly have been brand-building and business-building for decades.

Who is the new sleeve sponsor then? Or is he talking about the current one being an improvement on the old?

Some things we canít change. But things needs to happen in stages and if all what he is hinting at is true, coupled with the team entering the CL that is a monstrous leap from time he arrived and of course from when Emery took charge. After that, hopefully we can sustain our on field success and add a stadium plan that propels us further still. Thatís the massive one which is why partnerships and V board appointment's have been announced. Itís all potentially very exciting.

His nod to Caine's classic "blow the bloody doors off" line was a wonderful way to communicate with our fans who are heavily-anglicised culturally.

The little swivels in the chair could also be inferred as his transmitting stong American-male energy on the topic at-hand.

Direct vocalised sharing of financial performance improvement further mark Heck as a corporate warrior with flex.

GO VILLANS!

Hope it ends better than their little caper, even if Juventus away won't seem as daunting now.

He is saying what we're all witnessing, but perhaps the media and others are not noticing.
This is not a one season wonder like Leicester, we are building the club up, on and off the field, to be in amongst the self proclaimed big six.
Although i don't really care much about advertising deals, shirt sponsor deals etc', it has to be taken seriously in todays market, so it's good to hear we are being successful there too.

It's laughable how people have been ignoring or dismissing what is happening at Villa. They are forced to accept we are doing well, but they attribute that entirely to 'lucking' into getting Emery. They have no idea of everything else that has been going on to get us to the point where we could convince someone like him to join us.

Aside from the Smith/Gerrard season, we have gotten higher up the table every season under these owners. It's very rare to see that level of consistent improvement. Emery was the missing piece football-wise. But the owners are determined to make the whole club world class. You don't hear them wanking about it to all and sundry when they haven't yet lifted a finger. They just get on with it and the evidence is there that it's working.

Totally agree - just wish the media was not so blinkered and biased

Right now I donít care how the media perceive us.
I am not sure I will be comfortable if /when they start fawning over us.
