Former Aston Villa boss John Gregory is quoted in The Sun today talking about the local derby and David O'Leary.
This follows his quotes in the Birmingham Post: Click Here
He said today: “In the last few years these derby games have just been about local pride. This time there’s a lot more at stake — the manager’s neck is on the line and fighting for survival dictates a different approach.'
More worryingly he adds to the suggestion that O'Leary no longer has the dressing room.
“David O’Leary is manager of one of the biggest clubs in the country and has one of the most coveted jobs in the country. But the captain recently said the atmosphere was like a graveyard in the dressing room and there is a lot of negativity around the place. There’s a malaise.'

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!
