O'Leary - Fans Have Turned

Vital Villa asked this week whether David O'Leary will survive until Easter. The poll followed on from reports that O'Leary has been given to Easter to steady the good ship Aston Villa or face the axe.

O'Leary has today said that he won't be walking away but according to this poll, the vast majority of fans would like him too. So the fans have turned, it seems the press have turned, now all eyes will be on Doug to see if and when he turns.

Only 16% said they hope O'Leary will survive, 43% said they hoped he wouldn't, 25% said he would go at the end of the season and a further 16% said he should leave immediately.

It will be interesting to see how Villa fair against Fulham tomorrow, the mood of the home crowd has worsened this season, as have the attendances. Despite the club giving the kids for a quid promotion, I can't see the attendance being much over 30 000 and so the trend will continue unless investment is found for a manager worthy of leading the team up the tables in the forthcoming seasons.

Investment would be fantastic but lets be honest about this, a decent manager would at least have this team, with the current squad members, much fitter than they are and fighting for every point. This squad may not be capable of competing with the really big boys but as has been said many times before, they are a darn sight better than most sqads in the league and the league position should reflect that. I would like to think that, with a manager that really cared and got the team to fight (Not in the Newcastle sense of fighting amongst themselves you understand), the fans would turn up week in week out to support the lads, even with results going against them. If not then sadly O'Dreary has a point. I would like to think that Villa fans are at least as good and as supportive as, for example, Coventry fans and Leads fans, whos attendances did not drop so significantly as ours even when relegated.

The longer the game goes on tomorrow without us gaining the upper hand, the uglier the mood of the crowd will grow. The majority of supporters have finally decided that enough is enough. As if the quality of the performances isnt enough to beef about, we now have a manager openly critical of supporters. That David, will only bring about one end result, rest assured of that.
