    Managerial Candidates!

    These are my Views on the Mnager position at Villa.
    I would have liked Carlo Ancelotti but he wants to take a year off.
    Fulham had a clearer view to who their manager was going to be
    and they had less time and didn't consider other options and it was always gunna be Martin Jol.I wud have liked him as the manager but Fulham had less options to look at and a clearer view.
    Rafa Benitez isn't a very good manager and I wouldn't have liked him.
    Mark Hughes is a unloyal,angry,no strategy 5hit cunt manager.
    Roberto Martinez has fighted against relegation for the past 2 seasons and we are challenging for Europe.I don't think it would have worked out.
    Steve Mclaren is in my opinion,a bad manager and doesn't suit Villa.
    David Moyes,is a good manager who is Premier League,proven quality and a strong manager who could (if we sign him) bring in 1 or 2 players from Everton like Tim Cahill,Leon Osman and Tim Howard as a goalie.
    Come on The Claret and Blues.
    David Moyes for the Managerial position.

    • Big Eck on his way.

    • Am I alone in being somewhat wary of all these names being banded about with regards to the Villa job.
      We all thought Martin o'Neil was the great white hope only to walk out in a huff over the sale of one of the few real quality players he bought in.
      Very few managers have the ability or the patience to work with the players they have at their disposal ( which we have ) and have to resort to spending money in order to bolster their credibility.
      I just hope the board take a pragmatic view to what is best for the club not pay lip service to a public relations exercise in media hype.

    • HI i am andy ehiogu i big aston villa supporter. my opinion is that we should go for Gareth Southgate or Steve McClaren or Billy Davies and bring back Steven Harrison as a Coach. the problem is are aston villa willing to spend money to improve the squad to compete for a European Place. Villa seem to be a Selling club we have lost Ashley Young to man utd and we are about to lose Downing to liverpool. Do we know what Randy LERNE;s plans are for the club. new manager needs to bring through youth and sign some experience players . we need reinforcements in defence,midfield and attack.

    • Ive said this before - a shot in the dark - Terry Butcher. Great Motivator, good eye for talent, knows how to work on a shoe string - he's cut his management teeth up in Scotland. used to pressure and the Media.
