    In terms of the team and Jack Ross he suggested that the playing squad he inherited were happy to bump along winning one, drawing one, and losing one and that he had worked hard with them on keeping up a win every game mentality. He said that future additions to the squad would also help with this.

    Wants more natural width on the left. Feels we have it on the right with Boyle and Cadden but not on the left.

    We’ve been lucky to manage with 2 main strikers - wants another one.

    We could do with more goals from midfield but it is also something he is working on with the current squad. Magennis will help this. He had had a tough year but this year was also an introduction for him - expects him to be a major contributor from next year.

    Pitch wise we are doing work this year to renovate it and make improvements to how we maintain it. Hybrid should be in the plans but probably a few years out.

    They are looking to have 2 pitches at HTC that are as close as possible to the Easter Road pitch.

    Small improvement in player areas and the barn at HTC but a multi year plan being put together for making the most of HTC. Ron thinks this could be what takes club to next level.

    Are we still looking to double the player budget etc? I know that was spoken about before but is that still the case?

    A young player going south was mentioned above, was that Murray Johnson? There was chat Ethan Laidlaw was away at Leeds on trial too. Assume we are getting a substantial fee?

    Has the pandemic stopped any of the things he spoke of at last years AGM, I know there were more things than the big screens mentioned? Any idea if anythingís been canned?

    Sounds like good stuff overall though, sure weíll see a summary in the press shortly.

    They stated that all the imporovements to the stadium and the training centre are still going ahead and that some of them have already been completed. There's a new PA sound system that has been installed at Easter Road for example. Improvements to both outdoor and indoor facilities at HTC still planned for this summer also.

    Understand that fan return to stadiums is out of our control, but from what was said/discussed about it here, what is the clubs degree of certainty in having fans return by 1) first home game of the league KO 2) back to normal...

    Very professional.Ron enjoyed himself.Very heartening to see.

    Ron thought back to normal by the autumn.

    I think in the end weíll get maybe £3-4 million from the selling on of McGinn. Not the ££££££ some were hoping for but definitely an extremely welcome cash boost whenever it happens.

    im personally glad that St Mirren will do alright out of it too. SJM is an extremely honourable young man and he makes sure his previous clubs are alright and looked after.

    Chris corrected Ron after Ron said "it's 20% with 30% of that due to St Mirren".
    Chris Gaunt corrected him by twice saying "with 15%" which I took to mean it was 20% with 15% due to St Mirren.
    That's the way I took it.

    Also Rod has previously said the STM cut is nowhere near 30% so this would confirm that.

    Iím not so sure he will get sold on anymore. Villa have probably grown as a team this year to the level where he doesnít need to go anywhere else and Iím not sure the top 5 or 6 would want him.

    Cheers! Seems like they didnít go into the lower level detail like last season but I suppose when we donít know if thereís likely to be supporters in, I get that.

    Good stuff about HTC

    That wasn't a bad AGM, lots of positive, upbeat messages but still a long way to go.

    Agreed. Villa have been playing SJM deep recently and his performances have slid.

    If they were to get relegated though there would be a few clubs looking to buy him I imagine..

    So in summary...

    Still some investment needed in the infrastructure.

    Not entirely clear what the SJM sell on / St Mirren windfall might be.

    Some unspecified benefits for ST holders

    Pie debate

    This is excellent. Ron is showing he really gets and understands this club, by supplying some ammo for the usual debates but not really settling them.

    If heíd said something vague about flags it would have been a real mic drop moment.

    No it was made perfectly clear at the end. We get 15% and give Saints 30% of our 15%.

    No, confirmed as 15% sell on and roughly 30% of that would be due to St Mirren.

    We've already made more than that. We got 2.8 upfront and have cleared a couple more million since in performance related fees. We have done very well out of SJM

    Good to hear HSL could be given representation on the board (if I understood a previous post). Done a great job this season supporting the club.
    Is this as well as, or instead of a fans director role?

    That all sounds good to me, great to hear lots of positivity coming out of the club considering what's gone on elsewhere in the last year

    Imo there are two things here - a fan liaison, and fan representation on the board.

    Kieran has done a truly excellent job with the former, helping supporters get queries and requests sorted, providing updates from the club etc.

    But a properly functioning board - by its nature - will sometimes discuss sensitive or controversial subjects, and itís difficult to have a fan on there who then is conflicted about what they can and cannot share with the wider fanbase.

    Iíd be very happy to have HSL represented on the board, but while that individual should be accessible, I wouldnít expect to hear from them every month.

    Fair enough, I must have missed that bit.

    Still, if SJM is sold for £50m we still pocket around an extra £5m bringing his total fee to us to just under £8m plus what we received in performance incentives after Villa got promoted.

    Of course this is just an example. SJM could be sold for more, less or not at all.

    It all sounds very positive with Ron, once again, making all the right noises having already shown that he's willing to speculate/invest.

    He's definitely more open and gives more detail about specifics than we've been used to. for the past 2-3 decades

    Onward & upward!

    For every £1,000,000 we would get £105,000. St Mirren gets £45,000. Dependant on the 15%/30% distribution being correct.

    I did think it was slightly odd that there was no actual AGM notice before hand with the resolutions and proxy voting etc. Judging by the way the voting was done today I think there's been a bit of an oversight possibly with the handover to the new Head of Finance. There was reference to Notice of AGM which was never given and voting was essentially passed on Ron's shareholding!

    Agree with this.

    I donít see him being sold, not in his prime anyway.

    I know all that. I still expect us to get at least £3 million more from the selling on if/when he leaves Villa. And thatís after St Mirren get their cut.

    Yes, thanked up front for her contribution to where we are today and in moving to get us in as good a position as possible when Covid hit.
