Randy Lerner has still not, obviously, released his statement about the future of Aston Villa. Will he be selling the club? Will he keep it? What will become of manager Paul Lambert? Did today's 3-0 loss to Tottenham have any impact on the answers to any of these questions?
In response to my earlier post complaining about the wait we are all enduring and the resulting stasis, Jason Chalifour had a fantastic idea:
@7500toHolte You should put up a counter for how long we wait for Randy's statement.— Jason Chalifour (@JChalifour) May 11, 2014
So with that in mind, please allow me to reveal the Randy Lerner Statement Timer. Just how long have we been waiting?
Sure, it may seem a bit impatient, and even a touch petulant. But when you consider that there is no reason for us not to have heard something already, it seems fair.
Back in April, Randy told us: "As regards my personal role at the Club and the steady rumours of a sale, I will address these after the season." Well the season is over, so this is set to go from 1650 London time on Sunday, when the match against Spurs ended. The clock's ticking Randy. Get back to us when you get a chance.
EDIT: I removed the timer, since we were done waiting. The final tally was 17 hours 10 minutes.
