It doesnt really mean anything. Our new manger will have very little to work with when appointed. Aston Villa is still very much in the middle of a cost cutting exercise.

The value of the club means virtually nothing to a potential manger

I think it does make a difference to some managers. As Villa fans i think the last 2 years have drained a lot of positivity, to the point that we now see the 'club' in a very different light to how it's perceived by the rest of football, certainly outside the England. The squad we have is poor, but with the 'right' investment and a good manager we could improve a lot. Look at Newcastle, some well advised transfer dealings, with the right manager at the right time for the club and they are back in the top 6. A new manager does that with Villa, and their value as a manager will rise, and they can see what happens from that point. Either Randy will try and kick on again, or they can leave for a bigger job. With the best will in the world you think one of the top clubs in Europe will take Lambert, Rodgers et al from Swansea and Norwich. I don't think Liverpool will end up taking Martinez, unless he agrees to work under a DOF, and then he is just a well paid coach. The really top managers wont work like that.

Nineteenth biggest brand with relatively little work put into building the brand of the club shows the huge potential of the Second City's number one club. Just imagine what five years of serious investment and exposure would do for our club.

There are simple things we could do right now that would build the brand. For example, in lettering along the top of the Doug Ellis Stand, we could have "Villa Park, Birthplace of League Football 1888" so the world could see our place in history.

In the press conference room we could hang a huge, grand portrait of William McGregor next to the Villa badge.

In the players tunnel we could have "Villa Park, Birthplace of The Game"...

Little touches that would do so much and stress the uniqueness of the club!

Highlights how big we could be with the right manager and investment in good players to complement our academy.

Our academy isnt very good though.Gabby, Herd and Clark are average prem players, Gary Cahill has done well but everybody else is crap that has comne through.

The brand may be of a certain value but when you post losses of £54m, have a debt total of near enough £200m and an out of control wage bill then we have no chance of being big. The only way we will become big is if the same thing happens here that happened at Citeh.

Aston Villa will continue going backwards with the current owner

I'd say our academy is one of the best in the league. Maybe not producing world beaters but in terms of filling the squad with more than capable players and saving us money on transfers I cannot think of any other academy doing as good.

How on earth did we go from 25 to 19

with the season we just had.

Brand awareness can increase when you are constantly in the news and pretty much a laughing stock. The ginger one if nothing else made the rest of the world look at us :shock: :shock: :shock:

You obviously know very little about the academy. Villa have one of the top academy's in the country. The football League have been auditing and regrading all academy's recently and Villa will probably be the only club in the midlands who will get grade 1 listing.

My lad is in an academy so I see a lot of football and there is real quality coming through all round in the Midlands,especially Villa and Albion. In some instances hThe problem being most of the kids when they actually do break through they don't get the opportunities due to the cliquey first team set ups or managers without vision.

Look at it this way.The premiership has many ex Villa academy players in it. MON held many of the youngsters back in his time here when he should've been bringing through Albrighton, Bannan, Gardner etc to learn of Barry, Milner, Young and Co. The problem however in our case at the moment is the opposite. The youth are getting a chance but rather than bringing them in one at a time, we bring them all in together into a pressure cooker situation where there are no real role models on the pitch or in the dugout, especially since we lost Petrov.

Villa have good youth but if when they get to the first team the senior players around them are shit or the management how do you expect them to kick on and improve? More often than not as in our case at the moment the kids are more worried about putting a foot wrong than playing expressive football. The Wayne Rooney's and Beckham's of this world just don't grow on trees however there is quality, especially at Villa. Just look at how many have appeared at first team level this season alone.

Silly thing to say mate.
