Oh happy day....!

I detest the notion of Football Clubs being taken over by US (or Russian) billionaires to use them as their playthings, or even to asset strip them. But given the fact that Aston Villa Football Club has been in the hands of one of life's most malevolent creatures for a quarter of a century... today's news must be regarded as a blessed release. I despise the very air that a very small group of people use, (Margaret Thatcher, Ariel Sharon... and Doug Ellis?) so today I will raise a mojito to Randy Lerner (whose very name conjures up an image of a student called Sean who I once shared a flat with).
