O`leary set to leave?

O`leary set to leave?

Nationwide, and internet-based bookies William Hill have already started churning out odd's on this season, and it turns out that in one of them, Villa are set to be right there in the lead!

Manager David O`leary, who can do no wrong (honest) is 2-1 favourite to be the first Premiership manager to resign/be sacked/mutual agreement etc. Next up is Man City's Stuart Pearce at 6-1, who after the honeymoon period didn't do that great. Well, against anyone but Villa!

Take a bow David, you deserve it!

Out with the old Arsenal boy and in with the mighty Glenn Hoddle now there is a man who can lead you to greatness, all be it via a couple of the local mental institutions.

and the odd faith healer perhaps?

The beads, the beads the magical beads, one rub for stay up and two for go down. The only reason why O'Leary wont get sacked is because it will cost Ellis money.

Exactly Hoddlesleftnut. That's the whole problem. In typical Doug fashion he's got him on a big money contract, f*cked up the clubs finances by being a tight old git and now O'Leary has turned out to be sh*t he can't afford to sack him. No other manager at VP would have got away with what O'Leary did last season. Although Ellis is the constant problem, O'Leary has to be first out if we have any hope of avoiding the drop next season. So come on Sunderland, what are you waiting for?

ellis really is a jew! o'leary is overrated, did ok at leeds however he did bankrupt the whole club paying astronomical fees for distinctly average players (seth johnson).

I've said it all before, can't be bothered to go through the arguments again so I'll just say; DOL out!!!!! Hopefully followed bt HDE.

Villain of the North - O'Leary is a bad manager because OBE HDE is his boss... Trust me, the real problems at Villa go much further than what's on the field.

He is not man enough to resign or he would be long gone, Ellis keeps him because he deflects some of our anger from Ellis himself. O'Neill would be brilliant but would He have anything to do with the fisher man
