    He's not convicted of any financial crime as far as I know

    The problem is mainly that while these thing can happen it's not he most likely scenario. Leicester is far more likely to go down than to win the PL - even if they did the latter most recently. Making it with the available ressources would be a much bigger feat than making it this year - it's not just a reshuffle, fresh manager and play the youth. Its could be - but not most likely.

    Round was brought in when Irvine left to become a manager and never convinced. Irvine did a much better job. My opinions on Wyness have already landed me a warning on here.

    Being an Everton supporter with a lot of time for Villa I've read this latest discussion with great interest. My view is that both clubs have a "bandwith" - Villas currently being from mid-table Championship at worst to top 7 in the PL at best within 24 months. Quite a huge spread of 20+ league placings, but given luck, finances and players gelling to a team not out of the question - and vice versa. Evertons range is narrower - probably 14th-3rd - and, as each place upwards becomes progressively harder, more likely 9th-5th. So Villa can get on par with Everton within a couple of season, but it will not be very likely to happen. The continuous flow of income will be so different that FFP-rules will prevent Villa from closing the gap on transfers and salaries within the 24 months - making the on-field results less likely to happen. A lot of the discussion seem to confuse possible and likely - I'm not sure whether there's any real disagreement here.

    In the PL - haven't seen anything on the Championship.

    Not a strong correlation - but a strong one with wages

    Round, Wyness and Samuelson. An unholy trinity of self interest.

    I'm starting to believe you might be right.

    I agree to some extent - but the best experiences were still with the pretty ones.

    Cech was another, Diarra and Drogba, to name some off my memory. If you have the cash it might be a great fit
