Vital Villa asked, in a snap poll yesterday, what your opinion of John Gregory is.
11% said he should be brought back as manager. A further 64% said he is 'a real Villa man, I'd love him back'. So a nice round 75% vote of confidence!
A further 5% said he is a great manager but shouldn't return, 1% were surprised he isn't in a top job and just 19% voted 'no thanks, he has had his chance'.
One thing is for sure, JG speaks the language of the fans, who could forget the 'Doug's in a timewarp' quotes?! He also, when being a pundit, talks about 'we' whereas DOL only ever says 'I' unless there is some blame to share!
