Majority Wanted Doug Out First

Vital Villa asked who you wanted out of Villa Park. Seems the majority haven't got their first choice as David O'Leary has just departed.

Anyway,

54% said they wanted O'Leary out BUT Doug Ellis first.
34% wanted Ellis out.
7% said both but O'Leary first (so you are all happy tonight then?!)
3% voted for poor Doris the tea lady to save money for Doug's bonus.
2% said just David O'Leary.

So apart from with a few fans, it seems the message is finally out, Doug Ellis has got to leave Villa Park before any manager can truly succeed. Let his 13th be his last for pity sake!

Our latest poll asks who you want to take the helm (bearing in mind whilst Ellis remains it doesn't really matter!)

O'Neil, Curbs, Allardyce, a former Villan like Cowans or Platt, Sven, McDonald or Aitken.

Will O'Neill work for anyone while his wife is still ill? Interesting, and I don't really know...then again, he was over in France for the World Cup.

Can anyone forward DD all the links to the hundreds of forums and articles etc that make it obvious that he is not wanted by any of you?? He seems to be totally oblivious (or amazingly thick skinned) to the opinion of most of the fans of the club he claims to love so much!

I really feel sorry for Villa fans everywhere. It seems as though the senile old fool is determined to drag your club into oblivion. A club with such a rich history and tradition and a massive, loyal fan base. DD is every fan's nightmare and I'm so glad that, as a Spurs fan, I have a Chairman that I trust and respect. He has a clear and sound plan for the future that all Spurs fans are on board with. I don't know whether DD is deaf in his old age, or, just a stubborn old fool with skin like a cow's hide but he must go for the sake of your club. I hope that, for your sake, this happens soon. P.S. Before you go Doug, can you pop Gareth Barry over to us on a free transfer??!!?

I doubt O'Neil will come but he has shown the ability to make a team competitive with almost no budget and very average players. He has also shown the ability to bring players on (Heskey and Izzet were actually very good before they left Leicester). He can organize and motivate and in Villa, despite the infamously small squad, he would have players far supirior to those at Leicester and a good crop of youngsters to develop. I personally beleive that with as little as 6 million invested over 2 years (and even Doug has generally come up with that much) and time to develope the youth and remotivate and organize the senior players, if O'Neil wanted the job he could have Villa in Eurpe in 2-3 years through league qualification and (possibly) sooner through cup competitions (including inter-toto). Problem is, why come to us when in 1-3 years he can have the job at MUTD? Unless it's just to keep his hand in. Surely if he came he could outlast Doug and go on to become a Villa legend, perhaps even surpassing Big Ron Saunders.
