Fantastic write up Rob. Would be lying if I said I wasn't a little jealous though :)

that is very cool. as a 35 year old out of shape accountant i'm starting to think my dreams of making it as a top professional footballer at Villa are just starting to slip away so it was nice to hear about your experience.

hope you got to keep the swag!

As a 37 year old desk jockey myself I'm finally let go of that dream!  Yep, they let us keep the gear.  Might encourage me to get a bit more cardio on the go!

Fair play, that was a really interesting insight and one I enjoyed reading immensely. Things seem to be shaping up well now. It's very reassuring that we are finally getting our act together! 

Now to buy some new players...

Haha, I am a 40 year old out of shape accountant. I think it was roughly about 5 years ago that I gave up the dream of becoming a pro footballer. I am now waiting on the call to take over the reigns as the manager at this great club, the club has got through enough managers over the last five years, but still no call. :(

There was more than one mention about the quality of players we're going to bring in.

Also some interesting insight into the younger players, which Gregg has covered in the Mail today.  Aside from those Khalid Abdo was called out as being extremely talented.

Did you spot that club rules poster anywhere?:D

Seriously great stuff. I used to go to BMH years ago every half term/summer holidays when they used to train on the pitches right by the public car park.

Don't go anymore as that dosen't happen and not interested in getting autographs. It's a great facility though.

I had a look out for "that poster" but didn't see it anywhere.

Who were the people mentioning the quality of players, Wyness and co or the reporters?

Just thought if it really is genuine it would be in the dressing room as obviously it's directed to the players so probably not unless they quickly took it down given some form of it was leaked.

I guess we are tragic examples of talent slipping through the net. Lack of talent not withstanding i blame the system man!

Great write up - enjoyed reading it. Thanks for taking the time.

My only criticism: Start with the TL;DR, don't finish with it. ;)

Great piece though I do try to not get swept up by corporate slogans as until they're carried out in practice they're just words.

 

Very encouraging stuff though and a breath of fresh air methinks when compared with recent years
