How much is Aston Villa worth?

One of the 12 founding members of the Football League and a dominant force in its early days, eight of Villa’s 14 domestic honors came in the 1890s. A brief flourish of glory at the start of the 1980s brought a first European trophy and its most recent league title, but the Villans are now mired midtable.
Forbes estimates Villa’s worth at $120 million back in MArch, 2006. But the more recent valuation seems to be closer to about $105 million.

Op. Income3 $10.8 mil
Villa’s principle shareholders are Douglas Ellis with about 34% and the Trefick Group headed by Jack Petchey, 20.1%.
Update: The Guardian believes that Aston Villa at 57 million pounds (Neville’s bid) or even the 64 million Lerner bid is overvalued for a club that it estimates is closer to 50 million pounds. This is due to the sale of the Serpentine Car Park to Birmingham City Sports Limited for 7.31 million pounds. Aston Villa’s finances are said to be extremely volatile and putting an exact value is quite difficult.
