O'Leary - A Joke Manager Apparently

O'Leary - A Joke Manager Apparently

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.

He might have done himself some favours if he had agreed to do more than just one fans forum? Can't see any reason why he wouldn't talk to the fans, if he didn't like the Ellis questions that would be asked, he could just say no comment.
