Who Was/Is The Best Villa Manager?

Who Was/Is The Best Villa Manager?

The new poll on Vital Villa is asking who is the best Villa manager from the modern era. The poll was suggested by board member Lee Lindsay.

The options are:

Ron Saunders
Ron Atkinson
Graham Taylor (1st time)
John Gregory
Brian Little
David O'Leary

Goes without saying David O'Leary will be the runaway winner. ;-o

I cannot believe anyone has voted for O'Leary but 25% have supposedly. Ron Saunders for me purely on the fact he won the championship with a squad of 14 players or thereabouts and it was his team managed by TB that won the European Cup year after. No comparison imho, although I did enjoy the BFR era.

It's close between Saunders, Gregory, (Racist)Atkinson, Little, they are all great but O'Leary shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as those managers

Surely the O'Dreary votes are a joke? Not being old enough to remember Saunders, I had a tough choice between JG and Big Ron but plumped for Big Ron (and don't give me that racist rubbish!). We played the best football under Ron and he used to excite the fans. Remember those days when we'd play Man Utd, Arsenal and Liverpool and half expect to get something?

Not my favourite manager, but undoubtedly the best on record/performance/achievement alone, stand up Mr. 110% himself, Ron Saunders. My personal favourite, the other Ron, BFR. Played some great stuff under him. Under BFR it was a pleasure to enter VP. We were (nearly) always entertaining to watch, and as deanovilla so rightly says, we gave as good as we got against Man.Utd, Arsenal etc.
