Aston Villa are slowly starting to re-build their reputation as the club has been in turmoil for over the past 5 years.
The slow decline finally reached rock bottom in May as they were relegated from the Premier League for the first time in their history.
Fans voiced their concerns in the final few games of the season stating that ‘they wanted their old club back’.
However, the situation has taken a turn for the better after a £76 million takeover from Chinese businessman Dr Tony Xia was completed and transfer funds of up to £35 million will be available for the summer.
After a long wait, the fans may have something to look forward to and hopefully ensure that their stay in the Championship is a brief one.
The players were severely criticised for their lack of passion and under performance last year.
Promotion will ultimately be the minimum target for the club and the players that decide to remain at Villa Park will be given the opportunity to prove themselves in the Championship to make sure they deliver the goods for the everyone associated with the club.
