All is quiet on the Villa news front so I thought I would test the level of feeling for-or-against the manager David O'Leary now that the memories of last season aren't quite so 'fresh' and the anger has had time to settle.
O'Leary blundered his way to our lowest ever Premiership haul with all sorts of excuses and moans and the fans turned on him like I've not seen before. My feeling is that anger hasn't subsided and season ticket sales are down because of it.
Ellis has treated the fans with disdain for many a long year and the way O'Leary spoke last season I got the feeling he was perfect for Ellis because he talked down to us in exactly the same way. The blatant lie about never being invited to a fans forum didn't help his cause and the constant rubbish he talks at press conferences (putting the majority of reporters to sleep due to the ground hog nature of his briefings), especially the infamous sugarbag comment, only alienated him further.
So how do you feel now? Gutted he is still here? Do you still want him gone? Do you agree with the board for backing him? Should he have had the dignity to walk? And where did I leave my wallet, I've got to go out in a minute and I can't find it anywhere?
Our latest poll asks the questions and don't forget to leave your comments below.
My vote goes for:
But only if Martin O'Neil is in-coming!
