    Could be good for you, although FFP will stop investment in the squad, he can spend money elsewhere to improve your club, that's if he really has the money. I suspect he does, lots of money in China, (weird form of communism there).

    20/05/2016 : Yesterday Aston Villa Chairman Steve Hollis gave a summary of the sale of Aston Villa to Dr Tony Xia.

    AVFC - Hollis on Tony Xia, fan role, manager update and the future

    I think Dr Xia should retain Steve Hollis, the Club needs someone in day to day control and Hollis has shown competence in this role. It would be decent if the staff cuts Hollis has had to oversee due to the anticipated reduced revenues were reversed. There has been plenty of talk of money coming into the Club, so let the first tranche of it be on the folks who keep the Club running, day to day. That especially includes those who man the Upper Trinity; all of Villa Park should be open, it will need to be.

    Just a note of caution.
    All the money in the world will not bring success, unless the right people are in the right jobs, on and off the pitch.
    If the correct decisions are made, in all departments, then there is no limit to what Aston Villa can achieve (again).

    20/05/2016 : There have been several reports doubting Dr Xia's credentials.

    All this information that has come to light in the MSM and online will be known (by now, if not before), by those charged with conducting the 'fit and proper person' and other tests. We have to trust that the investigations are carried out thoroughly and if Dr Xia is found to not be a fit and proper person, then this sale will be off.

    Steve Hollis will have to try again.

    Aston Villa's new owner Tony Xia has vowed to transform the club into one of the best three in the world inside 10 years. (Guardian)

    This is desperate stuff, even by your standards HIAG.

    Your wum **** ups have failed on every other board, so you've resorted to trying to wum the Villa board now that they've been relegated.
    A shocking admission of defeat by you :)

    Jesus, man! Are you so needy and desperate that you have to stalk me here, too?

    Don't call the police :police:

    HIAG mate, trying to wum a team who have been relegated after you've failed with your wum **** ups on every other board, is the equivalent of the nerd at school who everybody picks on pulling the legs off of Daddy long legs to get his own back.

    ... gotta feel sorry for Larry ... there he is writing football related stuff on a club board when the forum equivalent of Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell turn up uninvited to continue their argument about which of them has foisted the ****est acts on mankind ...:)
