Isn't it nice to have some hope!
The new board and bosses are making all the right noises, let's hope it is backed by actions. If we are as famous as Barcelona or Real Madrid in 5 years time, I will be over the moon LOL!! Better to dream big, than live with what we had for the last 5 years.
Let's not get carried away, of course, Di Matteo has a huge task on his hands, but he has a decent team of backroom staff. I will not be too disappointed if we do not get promoted next season, I am sure lots of our fans are expecting it, but we need to be realistic. We are coming from a very low level and probably need at least 6 or 7 first teamers who will take time to gel.
But it is just nice to look forward with hope and I am already looking forward to new signings, other players leaving and the new season cannot come quickly enough.
Onwards and upwards....
The famous as Real Madrid/Barcelona is a bit cheeky i think. Lets say Madrid have 20million supporters world wide - for arguments sake. Villa only have to get a very small percentage of Chinese football fans to support them, before they are on par with Madrid.
