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.


Spot on, we are very lucky to have the current custodians.
They know what they are doing.

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

The Lion has awoke!

I am more than happy with us keeping under the radar. At the end of the season many “experts” will be scratching about trying not to eat humble pie.

The thing is we deserve in large part our position in the national spotlight. The end of last season and this season aside we have been shit. For ages. And in that time we have been passed by and lapped multiple times. We are starting to make a move now which is why we have received a bit more attention. But the national media still gets much greater return in terms of their audience when they talk about the “big 6”, even if the “big 6” isn’t the same in terms of table positions. Talking about how shit Chelsea are or Arsenal bottling it is better radio for their listeners. We will break in but even when we do, unless we are winning titles we will still be an afterthought.

What's interesting is that there is a massive difference between old and new media and how they treat us. Youtube channels and more recent regions (such as the US) are generally far more open to saying how fucking good we've been this season whereas the British Press, Sky, MotD, etc are finding it a lot harder to take that step.

They just follow lazy stereotypes and don't really look deeper into things.  Take the rumours about Unai Emery that they have been peddling recently, how much research have any of them done on the set up behind the scenes at Villa in terns of the way Emery shapes things and the link up with Real Union.

Instead it's just, "oh he'll probably leave as it's one of the big six innit" level of insight.

Much as we like to go under the radar and scoff at the Big Six, it's their name in the media and more importantly their sponsors on TV. That's what gets the big deals.

Yes, I love how this week several places were peddling the "Emery to Bayern" rubbish and then a day later he signs a contract extension with more to come in the summer.

Of the so called Big Six Spurs should not be in there purely on merit. They have won fuck all across the years the other 5 sides have hogged all the trophies. They are there purely on geography and, frankly, because it’s good radio for their inevitable fuck ups from every conceivable position of advantage.

People forget - Spurs have only won the title twice, and the last time they did it was closer to the reign of Queen Victoria than to today.

With them, it is.

1. London - so they've always received more media attention than they've deserved.
2. Repeated European competition qualification - including a CL final
3. Nice big stadium so they now generate way more revenue than lots of other similar clubs.

To be fair to them, they've only been outside the top 6 twice in the last 14 years. It's 2 in the last 4 so it may be coming to an end but it was basically 10 years of consistent top 6's. 9 top 4's in the last 14 also, so I can see why they are included in the "big 6"*

The big 6 is purely on financial turnover, it has nothing to do with the real measure of success, trophies in your cabinet. On that there’s currently a bigger 5 then Villa and then Spurs.

Funniest one was when most of the top clubs faltered so they soared to the top, just to be beaten by Leicester, and then bottle jobbed it so much they allowed Arsenal to then beat them to second.

(Downside, it was THAT season for us).
