The new owners of Aston Villa have shown once again they are going to respect and cherish the history and grandeur of Aston Villa. Whilst the old lot were willing to let the greatness of Villa go to wrack and ruin, Randy Lerner and his merry men are going to restore the mighty legacy.

What am I on about?! RAL have announced that renovation work has commenced on the famous and fabulous old building the Holte Hotel on the corner of Witton Lane and Trinity Road.

They explain The current work is intended to ensure a safe environment for the restoration of the interior and exterior fabric of the building.

Specific uses for the building are still under consideration. Renovation works will, however, return the building to its original condition and make for a fitting landmark on the approach to the ground.


Pub? Museum? Both? Anything would be good, lets just get that superb building back up and rocking!

  • Went to the shop on Sat at the Villa village. In need of some work this area. The car park surface etc. Pretty sure it hasn’t escaped his notice. MON said that he was talking to Randy about the training ground and the next day the bulldozers were in.

  • I used to use that thing as an example of how badly Ellis was lacking in any commercial accumen. The least he could have done was sold fast food or shirts from it on match days. I personally would love a museum or even better some sort of pub with a hall
