Well, as if the players revolt wasn’t enough, it seems that Michael Neville may well be lining up a new and positive bid.

The Comers, it seems, are now totally out of the picture, but Neville has refused to give up and could well have lined up a blinding package.

Obviously no real details are available as yet but this would surely be a positive move and music to the ears of all Villa fans? Could we really – AT LAST – be looking at the end of Doug Ellis’ regime at Villa Park?

The fans have revolted for years, the managers have left under many a dark cloud and now the players have chipped in with a statement that as good as says Doug Ellis (at the age of 82) has to go.

So surely there would be no better time to bid?

My information is that the Neville interest isn’t the only interest but that as a Villa fan he is desperate to help come to the aid of this ailing club.

He told Pat Murphy (who spoke about the issue on Radio 5 Live tonight) that he was looking to put together a bid and that there has never been a more critical time.

Light at the end of the tunnel? It has to come, lets hope it is sooner rather than later. Any change HAS to be before the start of the season and Michael Neville certainly has a great knowledge and understanding of the club he has supported for coming up to 50 years.

Some are suggesting a bid could come in as early as next week, lets hope so and lets pray all ends well for Aston Villa, the club, the fans and the players deserve a massive slice of luck!

COME ON VILLA.

  • Please don’t let this be another false dawn!! I agree that it looks as if things might finally come to a head. Fingers and everything else crossed!!

  • NOW is the time. It has to happen now. Doug’s entire squad is against him. Whether he believed previously that it was only a small minority of fans or not, NOW he KNOWS it’s not just a small minority. His power is on the rocks. He is weak, old, vulne

  • A bid is on. I know for fact that Neville is Villa through and through. This guy has put so much effort into buying Villa that I give him massive credit for his tenacity!

  • Have to agree MM. The length of the comer situation has got people annoyed but they are obviously no longer involved so credit to Neville for not giving up and having a quiet life. Must have put a great deal of time into trying to line up finance.

  • I’m keeping various parts of my anatomy crossed but trying not to let mey hopes get too high (I find crossing my legs helps particularly well with this….oooooeerrrrr!)

  • et ru Brute… now ******** have it this is the time the peasants have revolted for the last two years now the upper classes have there is nowhere for the emperor and his yes men to hide

  • Something very definitely has to give at Villa Park, and for a brief few minutes there earlier, I thought that the ‘players statement’ would well and truly ignite the revolution. Michael Neville came across to me during the early days of the reputed Comer

  • Beleave it when i see it is all i can say.Rather have someone who has the money to invest themselves come in and buy us than some guy begging around for some backing.

  • I guess now is a great time for a bid. Everyone wants a fresh start, and with all that business yesterday I would imagine that the asking price may have dropped a little….

  • There wouldn’t be a better time for him to make a bid. Ellis may sell at a realistic price. Neville is a shrewd business man, I’m confident as a fan he could appoint the right people at Villa to have a positive “top-down” affect on the club. At the moment
