Monday Is D-Day For Villa

Monday Is D-Day For Villa

Monday is d-day for David O'Leary because that is the day, the Mirror claim, when the under pressure manager will have to face Deadly Doug Ellis (aka The Menace of B6) and explain why we have finished with the lowest ever points tally in the Premiership.

O'Leary believes that he will be at Villa Park next season but the fans are voting with their feet due to the lack of ambition from Doug but also the total lack of faith most have in the manager. The season ticket holders were sent a questionnaire about whether they will renew or not. Two thirds of those who took part said they would not if O'Leary was still in charge.

So Monday isn't just d-day for O'Leary but also for Villa and more importantly the long suffering fans.

Personally I want someone who is proud to manage this club, problems at the top or not. O'Leary has been insulting this season in his excuses, deflecting blame onto everyone and everything - apart from himself.

As someone said on the vital forum yesterday,

Due to Ellis we aren't a top six club anymore (and he should leave because of that) BUT we are also in no way a bottom six club and the manager has got to be held accountable.

Our latest poll asks if you think David O'Leary will be sacked or leave. Not if you WANT him to be, this is whether he WILL go.

Rather in a car, under a bus full of dynamite. D'OL has to go, one prat in charge is enough but two idiots running the team and club is terrible

So who would sacrifice 1.7million that we could use to buy a new player or 2 on getting rid of DOL?? I would...I feel a decent manager could get 2 more players worth of ability out of our current squad anyway so its worth the money!
