Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by Saurat, who should be the Chairman of Aston Villa should Randy Lerner’s bid be successful.

Randy Lerner got 51% of the votes.

Graham Taylor, who might have been chairman under another group, got 27%.

Brian ‘he who walks on water’ Little got 1%
Prince William (a Villa fan) just 4%, so bang goes my knighthood and any chance of this site being by Royal Appointment.

David Cameron (also a Villa fan) got just 1%, so he’d better concentrate on politics – which by the sounds of it is far easier than dealing with football clubs!

And Keira Knightley (who cares if she is a Villa fan?!) got 16%.

So there you have it, yet another vote of confidence in Mr Lerner and a great deal of interest in Keira Knightly as well! Nice to see Graham Taylor also get some attention, despite the ill fated second coming, he will always be a Villa man. Maybe he’ll get some sort of role, even if it is just ambassadorial.

  • I think we’re that desperate to get rid of Doug we don’t want to listen to another offer, when it ‘may’ be better. Can someone answer me this. Are there any transfer funds in place before Randy takes his seat?

  • Gazvilla, at the press conference announcing MONs arrival we were told that there were some immediate funds available. Although whether this is still the case……

  • Forget money as whoever buys the club would not do so without some capital available for investemnt in the club’s infrastructure and playing staff, it would be a completely pointless exercise without. What we should look at is the planning and staff brou

  • Randy as chairman is the only real sensible option, at least for the initial twelve months or so, to enable him to fully oversee the huge transition that will obviously take place. Not overly excited or happy about Strides continued involvement at boardro
