Vital Villa asked, following so many comments on the forum and amongst fans generally, what your opinion of David O'Leary was.
The majority, with 28%, said that the Villa manager was a joke and should be sacked. A further 23% feel that he was never a Villa man and should leave and a further 3% said that he ruined Leeds and will ruin Villa.
22% labelled him an average manager.
24% have faith in the manager and voted for the option, great manager, wrong chairman.
I know this is only a poll and that a few results either way dramatically effect the percentages. Nevertheless, this is a damning incitement of the tenure of David O'Leary with 76% thinking he is anything from a joke to average.
Villa are currently 15th in the league with only 7 wins, (10 draws, 10 losses) to their name and a negative goal difference. In his defence the chairman has put the club into limbo and he has suffered from an awful run of defender injuries. However, we still have a good percentage of our team made up of international players, a fact that you would never think if you had watched some of the woeful performances this season.
I guess all fans can hope for is a clean slate in the summer including a new chairman and either a new manager or a budget that suits a cheque book manager such as O'Leary.
