I'm sad, because I wanted him to succeed, but 4 points from 30 is no good and he had to go.
Who know who will be next? I'd like Moyes or Pearson from the ones mentioned.
The phrase dead man walking spring's to mind regarding what has happened to Sherwood this season .
He has to take some of the blame for the position we are in at the moment but and it is a big but is which manager with good experience and a half decent record would take on this post at a club that is in as much turmoil as ours is at the moment .
The owner has only passing interest in the club's affair's now he is openly looking to sell the club you have footballing decision's regarding recruitment and club progression being made by people who have very little or no experience in the game which manager would put there hard earned reputation on the line and come to manage a club that has all these restriction's in place .
The only hope for our club is for Learner find's a buyer sooner rather than later and the new owner will not treat our club as a rich man's toy as he has done for a good few season's and also we can get a manager of some quality and experience in and only hope he is left alone with his coach's to get on with the footballing affair's and keep the pen pusher's with there stat's and theories out of harm's way and hopefully we can save our premiership status this season and move forward next season to make progression up the table .
My personal choice would be Moyes but I cannot see him coming to Villa and working under such a flawed senior management structure . I would say let the new manager manage the player's and there performance and keep the back room staff pushing there pen's without interfering in footballing issue's .
The wrighting has been on the wall for tim for some time now and I do to a certain extent feel sorry for him and how he has been treated but now it is a case of waiting and hoping for better thing's to happen at out club.
Totally with you. We have big problems, and we will have big problems as long as Lerner remains owner. I'd be surprised if any of the better names mentioned are on the club's radar.
If i had a choice between Moyes & Pearson id plump for the latter because if he tells you to do a job on the pitch, you would do it!
He also got Leicester playing for each other and they went on a great run.
Out of interest if our former manager is using twitter, he's posting some crackers :D
Not sure what the press are on about our recruitment for, if Tactics had been given free reign we would have Adebayor, Lennon and Berbatov in the team!
Not sure what the media are on about. "Players not good enough" is a common theme. There seems to be wide agreement amongst us Villa fans that the players we bought from abroad are an exciting bunch, even with the lack of PL experience. Most (but not all) the performances we've put in have been good in the sense of being in the game, no matter who we've played; individual errors have cost us a lot.
