Christian Purslow

Recommended Posts

He sacked Steve Bruce at precisely the right time. Any later and this season would have ended much differently imo. I like him! For now.

For a toff.

Even if Purslow is a complete disaster, he will go down as a legend in my book for his immortal words 'We are Aston Villa . We do parades when we win cups and leagues - not for finishing 3rd place in the championship'. The only thing missing off the end of that sentence was 'that's the type of thing Small Heath would do.'

And we finished 5th, so even less reason for a parade! (I cant imagine any fans actually wanted this, did they?!)

I swear a read he has been removed as director along with xia? 

No, only from one of the companies which now owns Villa Park.

Could be totally wrong but was he involved with the Barry saga? They messed up big time there by being indecisive 

No the Barry to Liverpool thing went tits up because after whispering sweet nothings in Barrys ear the FSW told Barry he was going to play left back for them.  Barry wanted to play midfield and was unimpressed with them changing what they told him before.  Man City stepped in and gave him the playing position he wanted.

Great Q and A with Purslow from Minnesota today. Some interesting snippets in there. 

He interviewed DS at 10:30pm until 4:00am! 

He fills me with confidence every time he speaks. He’s the real deal. 

The more I hear of him the more I like him. He has taken the club to heart, speaks clearly, frankly and imo for the first time in years we have a CEO that isn't a cnut.

The bit below is scary...How anyone can forgive Xia, Wyness, Round and even Bruce for putting us in this situation is beyond me.

Last July, our Football Club could not make a £4,100,000 bill to HMRC, we were bankrupt. If these two didn’t put £60,000,000 in very quickly, we would have been liquidated. We’d have been Glasgow Rangers, we’d be starting again.

Maybe a bit harsh to blame Bruce.

I laughed hard at that. When your CEO is taking the piss out your local NON rivals you know he's a good un.

And people on here were going out of their way to defend xia while it was happening. 

Incredible. 

We hit the jackpot when bruce failed in that playoff final.

Yes and city were going off and trying to make it out like we were going off as if we had won the title, bunch of prats. 

Purslow was right to play a parade down, we got what we wanted which was promotion and was enough to do the sha's heads in.
