83% Call For Martin O'Neil For Villa

83% Call For Martin O'Neil For Villa

No real shock on our poll results as every forum you turn to, every fans phone in your listen to and almost every paper article you read on Villa points to one man.

We asked who do want as the next manager, with the proviso that whilst Ellis remains it doesn't really matter.

83% said Martin O'Neill.

The bookies odds on favourite Alan Curbishley, along with Bolton Wanderer's Sam Allardyce and Kevin McDonald (Villa reserve team coach) or Roy Aitken (caretaker boss) all came in with 4%.

Sven Goran Eriksson only 3% and a former Villan like Platt or Cowan's just 2%.

Reports today once again suggest that Alan Curbishley has no interest in the job and still wants a year off from football. Local papers suggest O'Neil is Doug's number one target but the Sun claim Villa have no chance of tempting the former Leicester and Celtic man whilst Doug is in charge!

Roy Aitken has spoken of his credentials for the post and Brian Little has said he would be interested in returning.

In my opinion if any club has the vaccancy O'Neil would be most fans favourite if available. With Ellis around not many will fancy it and Aitken could be the only realistic option? If the Villa fans, and lets face it all true football fans had their way Ellis would go and you'd get the man your club an fans deserve

That would just about top things off for me if Aitken got it. If he couldn't influence things as assistant, why would he be any different as manager. As we all know, it was him who took training and it was him doing all the talking from the touchline. Got to be O'Neill for me, with Curbs coming a close second for what he did with an average team at Charlton. However, remember that Charlton always gave up once they hit 40 points every year, and my mate who is a Charlton fan, isn't the biggest fan of Curbs' team selections and tactics

It will be very interesting to see how much notice Ellis and co take of the supporters opinions relating to this massively important appointment. Probably not much, they'll go their own way as per normal, but at least they are probably well aware of the supporters choice.
