The chairman Steve Hollis met with the Aston Villa Fans Consultation Group and they have today been told, and I quote "The club have been in talks with investors from the UK, America and the Far East. They want to get new owners in before a new manager is appointed so that the new people can bring in their own.
So it looks certain that something is now on the cards and the rise from the ashes begins.

maybe the doubters with start and belive now. I'm confident from the whispers I'm hearing from a contact in China that they are in pole position at the moment but ellison is a proper player in this as well.

In light of this information I cannot believe that the press still continue to link us with players when Villa have now stated that they want the new owner to choose their own manager, it therefore would most likely also mean that no new signings would be chosen or made yet either. By the way my choice for manager is now jose mourinho and I won't accept nobody else Lol ;-)

won't happen but it would be very interesting to see what he could do in terms of rebuilding a club from that league and how far he could take us over say 5 years and a fair budget. and if Rafa were to stay at Newcastle he could compete against his old mate the Spanish waiter in that league lol.

former villa manager Paul lambert has activated a clause in his contract to leave Blackburn in the summer. now I'm being told that this is because he has agreed to become the new celtic manager so Pearson and moyes will not be going there after all.

{Ed007's Note - Paul Lambert has no interest in taking the Celtic job. He simply doesn't want the hassle for him or his family that the job brings and he also said,

'I had eight terrific years at Celtic but there comes a time when you have to cut your ties. I still look for Celtic's result and Seville will always remain the biggest disappointment in my football career. But the idea of coming back just doesn't appeal to me.
I mean no disrespect to Scottish football but England is just a bigger place. I'm proud of my Scottish heritage but a move back home is not for me. The idea of playing the same club anything from four to six times a season doesn't appeal to me'.

So you think he putting it on the back burner ed?
Perhaps he could take Lennon as is number 2!!
Lol

I think Roy Keane is there next manager, won't be confirmed till season finished, but seems nailed on for me.

{Ed007's Note - Isn't Lennon one of the favourites for the Villa job? As soon as he heard the owner was called Randy he was all over it. The only way Keane will take the Celtic job is if there are massive changes behind the scenes and I can't see that happening - yet.}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Apr 2016 16:23:10
But how long has it been since he said that, Ed? If I were manager of Blackburn and got an offer from Celtic, I would take it. Lambert should take it if he's got it because he needs something like that in his declining career.

28 Apr 2016 17:17:36
Haha!! Very funny ed!

I have a feeling big changes will happen with you boys this close season, with the enemy back up there.

And I think Roy is the perfect fit for you boys.

{Ed007's Note - The problem is that we have a CEO in Peter Lawwell and Football Development Manager John Park who Lawwell can't see past his ideas, Park is basically doing the job of a DOF and not doing it very well. They're picking the signing targets, deciding contracts, who stays or goes with very little manager input and there is no way guys like Keane or Moyes are willing to work under those constraints. That's why Keane turned it down two years ago.
Since Gordon Strachan left the Celtic managers have been working with one hand tied behind their back. Look at Ronny Deila, we sold Fraser Forster to Southampton for £10 million and replaced him with Craig Gordon who had hardly played a game in years and that was even before RD came in where he had two assistants that he he had never met before forced on him - one of them, John Collins, being an old friend of John Park.
There's a lot of anti-Lawwell feeling at the Club over matters I won't bore you with but there are murmuring that the Irish money men are not best pleased with the way things are going and of they decide to flex their financial muscle it could well be Keane, remember the last time Dermot Desmond talked Martin O'Neill into the job with millions to spend and total control of team affairs.
Maybe MON will fancy the DOF job with Keane as manager.
Believe it or not but I actually have some of Roy Keane's DNA in me, I got an autographed programme from his testimonial and licked it where his fingers were!}

I'm glad you clarified how you got some dna in you!. Had someone nasty thoughts!!

Great, passionate post ed.

{Ed007's Note - I had second thoughts about asking for a dna sample the other way - I didn't want to appear creepy :)

28 Apr 2016 19:20:16
Lambert is now favourite for the Celtic job, Pelligrini is favourite for the Everton job, Pearson could be off to Middlesborough, so it could be that we're Moyes' only choice- I certainly hope so.

Reports suggest Pearson will go to Celtic now. I'm confused- are Celtic going after everyone we are or was this their second choice as Moyes could join Everton? I don't know what's going to happen now- I suppose I'd want Hodgson for a year until he retires?

{Ed007's Note - Pearson won't be named Celtic manager. The press are just linking anyone out of a job with the vacancy.}

I still have an inkling for MON. He ends his contract in July and the yanker could be gone by then.
Has to be a contender and is really what we need, not just what we want.

I never actually liked the way we played under O'Neill. He spent a fortune and played kick and rush football. He mad some awful buys (granted he made some good as well) then left in a fit of pique. No thanks Martin.

Ian Holliway has joined the list of pundits saying we should go for McCarthy. I don't think we should- he hasn't done what we need at the club (promotion and then a strong season in PL) for years now. Tbh I'd prefer Holloway just for the press conferences!

Well it looks like both Moyes and Pearson are going to snub Villa so what about Di Matteo or a manager those contract runs out after Euros eg Hodgson ( if he'll come) or Michael O'Neill? I'd still prefer Moyes so let's hope Everton win the rest of their games so Martinez doesn't get sacked and Celtic go for Steve Clarke or Evans.

Believable0 Unbelievable4

26 Apr 2016 08:45:40
If that's true, you have to ask why they don't want to come here. Just proves that there is no super rich new owner coming in .
Gutted.

Agree6 Disagree3

26 Apr 2016 13:06:05
I'm beginning to think that Hollis just said that so that the Club didn't look bad when King and Bernstein left.

If we don't get Moyes or Pearson I would love Hodgson to come in for a season.

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Apr 2016 13:51:19
if that was the case why did king say about the takeover 2 days after he left. why would he lie for them. also Brian little has said it's happening. I'm a 1000 percent happy that it will.

Agree3 Disagree1

26 Apr 2016 15:34:57
Where has it been confirmed that a manager has snubbed us? Come on guys, there are enough real problems for the club and us fans to worry about without worrying about unsubstantiated nonsense from people ‘in the know’.

The truth is Villa are playing their cards very close to their chest on all fronts and anyone that claims to be ‘in the know’ should either reference a direct source or admit that they are simply reading what everyone else on hear is reading and making up the bits in between in weird attempt at boosting their own self-worth.

Yes, it sounds like there is movement on a takeover but no, none of us know if, when and who it will be. If people like ‘Kingvilla’ think they do, then prove us all wrong and provide specifics. These are complicated and sensitive processes that take time and are kept private right up until the transaction is made legal. Any owner we’d want will manage it that way until they are ready and able to speak on behalf of the club. It’s unlikely any manager would want to join if a change in ownership is on the cards so let’s not jump to conclusions. which is what most reports you will read over the next few days/ weeks will be doing.

In short, it sounds positive and we all hope we get a new owner who will take us forward, but just because we want it to be true it doesn’t mean it is. We’ve had many false dawns before so let’s just keep our fingers crossed and not sh! t-the-bed because something hasn’t happened by Tuesday.

Agree5 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 15:55:32
my source is me. but who am I is all I can say.!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 15:57:53
time will tell and we will see is all I'll say. like I said before I'm a 100 percent that we will be under new ownership next season and can all look forward. but you are right these things take time and are kept in house till its done.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 16:32:25
This isn't meant as a personal attack kingvilla, it's just that it's worrying how a few snippets from half-baked reports and people filling in the blanks somehow becomes fact on forums like these.

I'm not questioning your motives but, to be fair, from what i've read you seem to write a lot without actually saying anything that hasn't already been reported. I've noticed a few people have called you out on that and you hinting at being 'in the know', but until you back it up with something accurate and reliable, you may as well just post a picture of a giant turd for all the good it does.

Agree4 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 16:35:02
Very well put mate.

I have a source, that says both new owner, (Ellison), and manager, (Pearson) will be in by Newcastle game.
I'm willing to give my source, kingvilla! Lol

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 16:49:49
Ha! I'd love Kingvilla to be right to be fair and then at least we'd have a much needed glimmer of hope to focus on!
Just wish everyone would stop whipping each other into a frenzy and then getting depressed that it hasn't happened over night.
Everyone chillout, get a ticket to watch the U21's for now and keep your fingers crossed on the takeover front. and a good calibre owner!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 16:49:53
DBS1983 is correct and the best read so far but we can all dream, but until we have facts let's keep it to our self,

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 17:42:43
it won't happen overnight could take weeks yet but I'll stick to my guns that it is happening. and yes I post a lot of rubbish on here to have a bit of banter and pull a few chains but I'm not messing on this matter. we will all see in due course!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 19:05:38
Lol, I love you Kingy. You always do this
Fair play to you though. You keep running things up the flagpole and people queue up to salute it . You must have a right laugh
Personally, I can't see anything being imminent on the owner or the manager front
We are a shambles and people are quite understandably going to be very cautious around us. What manager in his right mind would want to work under the restrictions that Lerner imposes?

Agree1 Disagree0

26 Apr 2016 19:51:37

Burnley have apparently stated an interest in signing Westwood if they get promoted. Let me know when the window opens I will drive him up there myself.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

25 Apr 2016 16:23:16
Westwood gets a rough time, grafts, and doesn't stop, and to be fair to him, he has never hidden. Not like most the others.
He is not world class, probably not prem class. But he has never said he is!
It's the other numpties we need rid of.
I'm not saying I want to keep Westwood, far from it! Just feel he is an escape goat, when he is playing to best of his limited ability, when we have so many others who never turn up, try or keep their heads down.
They could learn a lot from him regarding professionalism.
Never in the limelight, good or bad.
Never on social media.
Head down doing his best.

Can the rest say the same??

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 17:21:26
Well said flackie mate. Westwood may not be a world beater but he keeps his head down and does his best. I'd keep him for the championship, probably better suited to that level.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 18:04:57
we need a new midfield, he has been at villa 3to4yrs adds nothing, seems nice person but another PL buy who needs to go, too weak and small for championship.

Agree2 Disagree1

25 Apr 2016 18:47:04
I think he should go, don't get me wrong, I also think he was a poor buy, even by our recent standards.
However, as I have said, it's his ability that let's him down, not his work rate, desire, or antics.
And, here is the kicker, our scouts brought him because of his ability.
Perhaps they are where we should be aiming our frustration.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 18:51:18
Flakie well said but he's just not good enough to play like all others but fair comment.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 19:06:10
I agree!!!
But the annoying thing is, he tries to!
Can we honestly say, except for gana, and veratout, (so only talking his position) that they can all say that?

That's not looking at strikers, or our defence!

Yet always, he is the guy singled out.
Let's remember, our scouts brought him, they told him he is good enough for prem! He was way below.

What I'm trying to say, and badly i know, is we all know we are siht, including those players.
We will never know, if the rest had stepped up, and put the work rate that Westwood has in, we might of at least given survival a go.

Personally I think they should all leave, and all get grief. But for me, the last guy I would point a finger at his him.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 19:32:03
It's a squad game and as it stands, Westwood is good squad player and not on stupid money, think we're a bit too harsh on him, look at the crap he's surrounded by?

UTV.

Agree1 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 19:39:01
So many games I haven't noticed him which in truth is not too bad a thing for his position. I would probably keep him as a reserve. Certainly not really able to get into many premier league teams. He is however one of the squad who has maintained his dignity, respectfull on and off the pitch and is one of the few I would wish well.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 20:03:38
Well that caused a bit of a kerfuffle! Best summed up as a nice kid who just hasn't quite got the talent we would expect of a Villa midfielder. Definitely not though in the same mould as the rest of the work shy prima donnas masquerading as villa players. A good pro. As I write this I am reminded that a certain Mr B Bannan has made it into the Championship team of the season so maybe there is hope for Ar Ashley!

Agree3 Disagree1

25 Apr 2016 22:42:45
Westwood is one of the only true professionals we have, not exploding with talent no but is the sort of heart the club needs. Not good enough for the prem. We're not in the prem anymore. I've never disliked him and as flackie said he's being used as a scapegoat.
It's these 'proven top flight' players that have been the issue this year just simply not trying
Give the lad a break, he's never once given up on the club or himself even with his 'lack of ability'.

Agree2 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 01:08:01
Just read the papers and there isn't even a rumour now about a takeover now if one was close there's usually some gossip i tell you what if there's know takeover that coffin the blues fans held might aswell be aston villa. if he is sorry an its all his fault why don't he sell the club for a pound like the wolves chairman did that would be a good gesture! I love my club but this is getting stupid i genually think we might not win a game again ever.

Believable1 Unbelievable2

25 Apr 2016 04:07:52
trust me I know I play a lot of people up on here but a takeover is very close and is defo happening and Pearson will be in this week. there are 3 bids on table a fan led one. Larry ellison and a Chinese group led by wang jalin. I've herd larry ellison is very very close to being done.

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 07:52:05
I honestly believe the takeover will happen in the next 2 weeks, these things take time and don't happen over night. I do believe it's a three way battle between US, China and UK. US Larry Ellison probably the preferred option as Lerner will get the £100m straight away. As for Manager I believe that won't be announced until the end of the season. As I think Moyes is hold on to see about takeover and also what happens at Everton. If Ellison buys us I think Moyes will come and be given what is needed to clear out deadwood and build the team he needs.

Agree4 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 07:58:22
King Villa. you change your stance weekly, it's embarrassing, what is your source? . apart from Brown!, the daily sport? . trust you, you say it's Pearson?, a few weeks back trust you, it was McCarthy? . who next week? . forget spreading unfounded rubbish and get yourself some spelling lessons. 😂.

25 Apr 2016 08:56:58
I had a 500 quid bet on Mccarthy and trust me he is still a major player for job. now I might play a lot up on here with banter but I'm not daft enough to throw 500 quid away without reason. things have changed in the last 2 weeks. I'll tell you for a fact now villa will be in new ownership but the end of season latest if not the end of this week all being well. Pearson and moyes have both been spoken to about the job but I'm hearing Pearson impressed more.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree1

25 Apr 2016 09:37:08
The reason why there is no takeover paper talk today is that there is no takeover to report. The papers simply look around the world for the richest potential bidders and then report their interest, throw in a made up story about some rich Villa fans and it's job done. Everton was up for sale for 10 years with no solid interest, surely they are at least as good a proposition as Villa and they actually have a squad that can compete given a decent manager.

Agree1 Disagree2

25 Apr 2016 11:37:11
Mervyn King would not of said anything on Bloomberg TV about 'The Sale' of the Villa rather than a sale he also mentioned a time scale over the coming weeks too. He was on the board so knows something is on the cards as a Villa Supporter and season ticket holder of 55 years and experienced Business/ Banker Governor of Bank of England he would not generate rumours if he wasn't certain of a possible outcome.

There is no way it would be this quiet if negotiations were actually happening, someone would be camped at the lawyers offices. I remember when the last Liverpool takeover was happening and I work just around the corner from Slaughter and May in Bunhill Row London and there was a media scrum outside for days.

trust me keep the faith this is happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2016 18:47:12
It was just a stupid flurry last week based on a nothing statement from the club. The reality is that no one actually knows anything and the silence on this is deafening. I am not even in the Lerner was the worst owner in the world ever camp, yes he made some terrible decisions based on poor advice and yes he went missing when things got really tough but he also invested a lot of money when others with shallower pockets or even deeper pockets wouldn't have. There is no amazing takeover around the corner, there is barely a shred of evidence to say that there is.

Another morning comes and not a peep. What worries me is if we do get taken over by some fan consortium they will have no money but will bend to fan pressure and spend more money than the club can afford. If that happens then we could well end up in Leeds/ Portsmouth territory.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Apr 2016 22:34:29
Seem Mr Black getting a bit touchy, he say he picks the team, not the fans . God don't we know it, he talks about toxic atmosphere then picks the same crew that he know will wind the crowd up . Now we are down, there are people on his team sheet, that should never be given the honour of putting a villa shirt on their backs again. They gave up that right with their stupid actions and lack of respect for the Villa and us the supporters . Now is the time to change the whole atmosphere, give some of them kids their chance, the chance those others have decided it's not worth working for . I bet the booing would stop first game, give the fans the chance to cheer the team on again. All we want is a bit of effort, and a will to win again Villa forever.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

I have to agree with you DD.
I was hoping to see more youngsters yesterday, problem being the club is stuck in some sort of mode that conflicts with all logic and common sense.
Everyone that is on the coaching side at our club are brain washed I am convinced of it.
We need to start learning and fast because we are not PREPARED for what is to come in the Championship!

om one point i fully agree with eric black when he says "he is picking the team, and not the fans". the man has his badges and knows how to do his job and should never give to the boo boys.

but then again i agree with the fact i would love to see a few lads get a run out over the likes of lescott richards bacuna gestede given sanchez and sinclair. there are a handful of kids or back up players that i think we should stat,

Okore is now refusing to play for the club according to Eric Black. Apparently he refused to be on the bench for the Bournemouth game and is now training with under-21s. After that game, he said that he didn't want to be considered for any of the games going forwards. In any other job, that would be gross misconduct and immediate dismissal.

Black said he only wants people who want to play, from what I can see this the problem Okore does want to, but Numpty Black won't pick him . Black showed everybody today his understanding of what's happening . He says about toxic atmosphere, then continues to play the most hated players iv ever seen in all my time . How he could take Ayew of just beggars belief, Bacuna should of gone at half time . We have now been relegated, so now play some of the kids . Would be a compleatly different atmosphere, the kids would be cheered not booed . People who sit by us, where talking to Little before the game, he was saying takeover done and dusted, didn't say to who . Roll on new owner, new manager, new season . Villa forever . Also I'm up for a pint before one of the games next season.

Hello mate! I seriously think we should arrange this, an away day next year, beer before!
I disagree re okore.
To take himself out of availability is a disgrace. I understand his annoyance, how the Klingon, the right back, or Sanchez are picked above him, beggars belief. However, his reaction is do disrespectful to us supporters and unforgivable.

So.
Now relegation is confirmed. I would put a few u21, or fringe players in.
Defo grealish, Gil, and Adama.
I would also put bunn back in goal, I know he had a shocker last time he played. But, Guzan has done nothing to keep his place, his confidence is non existent, and he personally has cost us many games this season.
If we lose, we lose. Has no bearing, or affect on position, or league. But if we got some thing, or heaven forbid won. Could spure them on for next year!!

Thoughts?

Grellish no he has the wrong attitude and believe all hype that he's something he's not.

Agree1 Disagree2

I'd put most the u21 team out to be fair nothing to loose and be a great experience for them.

Agree0 Disagree1

I agree re grealish, as most my previous posts have said, but look at his models at the club, both captains, gabby disgraceful attitude, which we know about, Richards refuses to play his right position, ex England player from Klingon acts the way he does.
Perhaps the whole ground singing his name, playing 90 mins might sort him out?
If it doesn't work, what have we to lose in trying?

Love to see the youth given a chance, but i reckon so would every scout from the other premier league clubs too, they'll be circling our club hoping to snatch a bargain before any other rivals do, especially the likes of andre green, the papers for the last couple of weeks keep saying wenger sees him as a replacement for walcott, so yes play the youth, bu i just hope we have them tied down on deals that put us in the driving seat, not the agents with loyalties to their own pockets, talk about a double-edged sword!

They can only buy mate if we sell.

This is the way forward. These boys will form a large number of the squad next season and who knows set us up for the premiership in 2017. Grealish is a lad who needs guidance and some positive role models on and off the pitch. After Stanley Victors rant on Talksport maybe he can offer him some advise. Okore is disappointing as I hoped that he would be part of the spine of the team for seasons to come. Still could happen but would need a spectacular u turn. These remaining games are not meaningless they could give us some momentum to take into the championship.

Agree0 Disagree2

23 Apr 2016 14:38:02
Exactly right, i just hope that we made sure to sign them to contracts so like you say, we decide, no-one else, i sure as heck don't want to see what happened to southampton, leeds and portsmouth youth being literally given away, happen to us, i do hope they did make sure they agents haven't got any wiggle room or loopholes to exploit, but there again, what am i talking about, we got paddy reilly to bring the futures messi's and rooneys'in! (aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh damn, it was going so well)

I do sadly think if mr collymore became anyone's role model, best thing we could ever do is sell said person as quick as, because trying to emulate that Prat is quickest way to ruin a career.
We all put Stan on a self appointed pedestal, the guy is a useless embarrassment to our club.
Says he is a fan, yet was given the opportunity we all dream about, and couldn't give an arse.
His opinions not only on villa, but on OUR country are laughable, research his thoughts on the Falklands, our fight for those people, and the loss of life.
And the disgraceful way he treats the women in his life is scary.
Yet again he is held in regard, and now wants to be a role model???!

Most talented player of our generation, most gifted player we ever signed, biggest waste of money ever at vp

So randy finally speaks.

Speaks with passion, and a tone that he genuinely does care. But. Doesn't change or reduce any pain.

Thank you randy, for finally coming out the shadows, holding your hands up, and saying what we have all known for months, possibly a couple of years.
This IS all your fault.
No real investment
Poor appointments
The way you abandoned us

Only you randy had the power to change all of this, and you didn't, you watched us drown, to then hold your hands up, and offer a feeble apology, it's insulting, degrading and offensive.

You are a joke, an embarrassment, and possibly the worse owner ever in this league.
The only thing you have done is made other supporters pity us. It's sickening.

I don't forgive you, I despise you. You offered so many empty promises, broken dreams, and you think a single page email redeems you?
No intelligence
No business acumen
No self pride
No shame

Good riddance randy, you are a disgrace

omg i agree with flackie. lerners in birmingham today do think he will stay for the game?

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Apr 2016 13:22:43
May not make the game as he could be here to put the finishing touches to the sale of the club. Let's hope that's the reason for his visit and he sells us to the richest guy with villas best intentions at heart and not just the biggest offer.

Damn you Flackie! You beat me to it
Well said mate. Echoes my sentiments exactly.

Where's your christian attitude of forgiveness, yes at the moment its a cluster fcuk, but in a bizare twisted karma kind of way this had to happen for us to get new owners who really will love our club and have its best interests at heart, so (calm yourselves) happy days!

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Apr 2016 20:44:53
Not so sure I agree with that, and being blunt, to get forgiveness, you first have to do something.
To do nothing, and let the walls fall down around you, that's unforgivable.

Perhaps you are right, and this is our Phoenix from the flames moment.

But I'm not with the action of condoning the guy who burns you, just so someone else can come in to repair the damage.

How do you know learners in b6. If it's true I'll do the 500 mile round trip just to wave him goodbye sort of.

I'm gutted, can't be at tomorrow's game after a minor op this week, would live to of been in the holte tomorrow with mr Lerner at the ground.

But, got to be honest, he won't be there, if nothing else, he is a cold hearted coward, who wouldn't dare face the music.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2016 21:12:26
Don't disagree with you, we were a plaything, that's all, and when he got bored, he found something else, but, it looks like the consortium of fans will win (alleluah), i'm no cheerleader for randy, but he could have sold to the chinese a while back but didn't, so maybe (in a very very very very small way) he showed a bit of remorse ( not that he'd relay it to us though) and held on till the right people came forward, i don't know about you but when it goes through i can start not being mr. angry with everyone (and the mrs won't keep going round her brothers-although with all the football next season to look forward to-she can stay there! ) i know it doesn't make up for 5 years of kak, but i'm thinking of palace and their fortunes, and i think with our club, we can way eclipse all they've achieved (fair play to them) .
UTV-VTID-and then some!

22 Apr 2016 21:47:28
From what I hear, the Chinese pulled out, not randy Lerner!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Apr 2016 22:58:41
It all happens for a reason (though f. f. s. i wish him upstairs could have found an easier way) and like you say, with the chinese pulling out (my mistake), result and a half! all i know is i can crack on and enjoy a baby sham or 2 tonight, best of luck after the op, and now we've got the best of news, raise our spirits (and a drink too) roll on with the next mystery of a new manager.
