O'Leary - Officially The Worst.

Congratulations to David O'Leary. It is now confirmed that we have the lowest ever points tally in the Premiership. Seems he can talk a great game, just can't get his team to play one.

The one decent thing he has done since coming to Villa in a blaze of self publicity is taking the record for the worst ever Premiership season away from Graham Taylor. David O'Leary said Graham Taylors point tally was not good enough, now he has failed to equal it. GO.

Taylor shouldn't have come back but will always be remembered for his first spell. Now his 45 points haul 3 seasons ago is no longer our worst ever record, hopefully fans will remember Taylor as a Villa man.

So thanks O'Leary, FOR NOTHING.

The most Villa can expect now is 42 points.

Villa currently have just 9 wins, 12 draws and 16 losses.

Andy Blair's end of term marks for O'Leary is D.
I'll give him an F as any manager who turns on the fans is a failure, especially one who salutes the chairman who is holding the club back.

If DOL was a school child he would be in the special education unit. His end of school report would read: David isn't the most popular of lads. His outburst to the many people who have tried to support him this season, mainly after the trip to Wycombe, was totally unacceptable. His attitude towards others has caused friction amongst his friends. His insistence's on calling them honest lads has worn thin. During P.E. lessons David must stop telling the ground keeping staff the pitch is to hard. Also his colourful use of language can at times be completely inapporiate, where on earth did he come up with the phrase "Sugarbags". Also David has spent far to much time texting a young lady he met in a local cafe. However David has struck up an unlikely relationship with the school bully Aitken. He has also become very friendly with the headmaster Mr. Ellis. This fact can be shown by the fact that David's exam marks have once again been very very disappointing. In previous years boys have gained much better marks and overall term positions and still been expelled from Villa Park. Come on David get a grip for next season or perhaps you should consider a move to a less demanding club. I hear he was once at Elland Road, in Leeds. He's always going on about his lads at Leeds.

Under normal circumstances DOL's position at Villa Park would be under very serious threat indeed. Trouble is, these are not normal circumstances. What top manager, with a proven track record, would want to throw in his lot at his current club, and move into the impossible position of manager at AVFC? Working for Ellis would no doubt put a huge doubt into the minds of potential candidates, no cash available hardly helps the scenario, and add to that the question of a possible takeover surely somewhere in the very near future. No, I tend to believe that while Ellis remains, O'Leary is our best option. He at least knows where the current failings lie, although of course whether he's capable of turning things around is open to serious debate. What a mess!

Fair comment Villain of the North, cant argue too long and loud. I guess what I'm trying to say is that a new man will have to come in and assess the situation blind, we're back to square one, and with the restrictions HDE imposes the new guy will be at a disadvantage from day one. I'd rather stick with DOL until Ellis is ousted, because I cant see us attracting a decent replacement, and secondly I dont think anyone would/could turn the situation around any better than DOL could. I left myself open to your response with my initial posting, but changing manager right now, as things stand, aint gonna change a thing.

I take your point glensider but do not agree entirely. Yes in order to achieve anything of note we need to get rid of Doug but with a decent manager I doubt very much that we would be talking about relegation fights for the second half of the season. Regardless of the opinion of some, Viilla players are generally of a high standard with many current and former internationals in the team, something that many teams above us can not lay claim to.
