The new man in charge at Villa Park, Tom Fox said recently that American billionaire Randy Lerner had been re-energised in his love of the club and sounded like someone who bought it just last week.

That is ultimately what we are all here to do, we can talk about the business all we want, but the business is here to enable the football, the football is here to generate pride amongst the fanbase."
