Villa were back amongst the elite as Saunders continued to mould a winning team. This culminated in a seventh top-flight league title in 1980&ndash;81.[link widoczny dla zalogowanych] To the surprise of commentators and fans, Saunders quit halfway through the 1981&ndash;82 season,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], after falling out with the chairman, with Villa in the quarter final of the European Cup. He was replaced by his softly-spoken assistant managerTony Barton who guided the club to a 1&ndash;0 victory over Bayern Munich in the European Cup final in Rotterdam courtesy of a Peter Withe goal. The following season Villa were crowned European Super Cup winners, beating Barcelona in the final. This marked a pinnacle though and Villa's fortunes declined sharply for most of the 1980s, culminating in relegation in 1987.[24] This was followed by promotion the following year under Graham Taylor and a runners-up position in the First Division in the 1989&ndash;90 season.[25]
Villa were one of the founding members of the Premier League in 1992,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych] and finished runners-up to Manchester United in the inaugural season. For the rest of the Nineties however Villa went through three different managers and their league positions were inconsistent, although they did win two League Cups and regularly achieved UEFA Cup qualification. Villa reached the FA Cup final in 2000 but lost 1&ndash;0 to Chelsea in the last game to be played at the old Wembley Stadium.[6][26] Again Villa's league position continued to fluctuate under several different managers and things came to a head in the summer of 2006 when David O'Leary left in acrimony.[27] After 23 years as chairman and single biggest shareholder (approximately 38%), Ellis finally decided to sell his stake in Aston Villa due to ill-health. After much speculation it was announced the club was to be bought by American businessman Randy Lerner, owner of NFL franchise the Cleveland Browns.[28] The arrival of a new owner and manager Martin O'Neill marked the start of a new period of optimism at Villa Park and sweeping changes occurred throughout the club including a new crest,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych] a new kit sponsor and team changes in the summer of 2007.[10][29] The first Cup final of the Lerner era came in 2010 when Villa were beaten 2&ndash;1 in the League Cup Final.[30] Villa made a second trip to Wembley in that season losing 3&ndash;0 to Chelsea in the FA Cup Semi Final. Just five days before the opening day of the 2010&ndash;11 season, O'Neill resigned as manager with immediate effect.[31] Reserve team manager Kevin MacDonald took over as caretaker manager,[32] before the club appointed G&eacute;rard Houllier as permanent manager in September 2010.
