The Randy Lerner Statement Wastes Opportunity to Communicate to Fans

Share This Post

I know Villa chairman Randy Lerner’s statement in May last year said his heart wasn’t in owning the club anymore, but really he needs to work on his communication to supporters.

The Paul Lambert sacking once again presented a big chance for Lerner to communicate to supporters, to maybe discuss his thinking in the change of management, his current feelings post the non-sale of the club and also to be bullish for the upcoming serious fight the final third of the season is going to be.

What does he do instead? This curt ditty…

Randy Lerner Statement

Following several brutally challenging years at Villa, Paul Lambert arrived with a fresh view and a proven style and track record. It was our hope, and belief, that Aston Villa would find its footing and strengthen during Paul’s tenure with the club.

Adding players and investing in the squad over the last three years has strengthened Villa, and it is our hope that given the quality, leadership and team spirit at Bodymoor Heath that we can rise to the occasion for the remainder of the season.

I want very much to thank Paul for his commitment to me personally, and to Villa, and wish him well personally and professionally in his future endeavors.

– Randy Lerner


A bit of a wasted opportunity, if you ask me. Plus, in the UK, Mr Lerner, we spell it ‘endeavours’.
