New owner willing to spend
A lot of fans lay the blame firmly at owner Randy Lerner’s door for not selling the club sooner and also conducting some awful transfer business.
Villa have been on a steady decline with him at the helm and their relegation capped it off.
Also last season Delph and Benteke kept them up, so selling them and reinvesting the money in the wrong places was foolish. A
ll the new signings were failures apart for Amavi, Veretout and Ayew and Villa will take a big loss on them.
But finally Tony Xia completed his takeover of the club and by the sounds of it he is willing to invest in the squad to get them back up straight away, and has already shown ambition by bringing Di Matteo in.
He wants to wake up the sleeping giant by convincing big names to stay and adding some talent.
