The poll swung dramatically with O'Leary having 50% of the vote at one point. We left it to run a couple of days longer than usual to get as many votes as possible. The results:
38% said 'we need one manager for years, David O'Leary isn't the one. 24% said O'Leary should be sacked, 10% said if they were the manager they would leave Ellis to it.
That left 28% saying that they would like to see David O'Leary stay and that he should have another season.
I'd be interested to see what he could do if we got new owners, if Ellis stays, then I think we need a different sort of manager altogether, quite who I have no idea, as not many top managers class would be daft enough to jump ship from other management jobs to work with Herbert surely!? Trouble with O'Leary, as one fan said on Sky Sports the other day, 'he has disrespected the club from the day he came here' and I think many fans have seen their patience stretched too far.
Reports recently suggested O'Leary has until Easter to steady the ship, surely it would be more prudent to give him until the end of the season?
