Okay here goes!
We all know the current situation that one of Britain’s most successful football teams currently finds itself in - they need shot of their owners one way or the other and it seems that after several years of rumour and conjecture (it is now approaching 2 years since The Guardian proclaimed they would almost certainly be sold by the end of the week), this may finally come to pass.
What I would like to know is, what do people feel is likely to be the long term outcome of all this?
Do you think that they are liable to be bought by someone in the Sheik Mansoor/Roman Abramovitch bracket who will put them back up with the big boys?
Do you think they will get bought be a mid level player like Randy Lerner who, whilst not exactly scrimping, isn’t throwing oceans of cash at Villa, keeping them competing between mid and upper table?
Or do you think that the next owners are gonna be as bad or worse than the current lot, able to buy a big club on the cheap and run it further into the ground?
My gut feeling as a fan is something akin to option 2, with a bit of 3.
