Shocking Manager Ratings!

Shocking Manager Ratings!

Vital Villa asked last week 'who is the best Villa manager from the modern era?'

The results have amazed me!

44% say that John Gregory was the best with Ron Saunders coming second with 33%.

Both Ron Atkinson and my hero Brian 'he who walks on water' Little got just 7% and yet we played the most attractive and exciting football under them both! I remember in those days truly believing we could beat anyone on our day.

What mystifies me is that Graham Taylor only got 3% after the question stipulated 'first time around'. So looks like - for some - the great things he did for Villa first time round has been blurred by his second spell at the club.

David O'Leary got just 6% and that was 6% too much in my opinion!! ;-)

We will add a poll about our worst manager of the modern era in the next week or so.

The internet age may have more to do with this result than is first evident.

I bet if all the people who voted has to raise their hand in public, rather than make an anonymous click the results would have been very different!
