Which Manager Would Spend Best?

Which Manager Would Spend Best?

Vital Villa asked, in a poll suggested by imavillan, what you thought of John Carew.

57% predicted he would get ten or more goals this season.
20% predicted he would get less than ten goals this season.
10% are yet to be convinced by the Hulk.
2% went further and said that the striker wasn't good enough.

That left 7% saying he will score 15 or more goals this season and 4% predicting a goal fest with 20 or more goals.

Our latest poll asks what manager would have been best in the transfer window given the funds that are available now.

I'm mixed between John Gregory who would have had a field day spending and he who walks on water as Brian Little's era was great, especially when JG was a coach as well.

Think this is one that could get interesting Jonah, at the moment MON has 35% which is a bit surprising as he's only got 2 + a loan in. Should be a good gauge as to the faith people have in the current manager?!

Big Ron for me...lets hope MON is not on here for the next few days voting for himself rather than actually signing players!!

Little for me........would be doing the same as MON is at the moment, building for long term, if he was in charge now, with the curent setup. No panic buys. God, imagine Taylor and O'Dreary.....second thoughts....don't !!!!

Big Ron certainly knew how to splash the cash, yet wheel and deal in the market, so I think he has to get my vote. Imagine Big Ron at the helm in the current situation, where for the very first time we actually have an owner and board happy to see us compete in the transfer market. We'd probably have eight or nine new faces in by now.

Apart from our GT Mk II, I think most of 'em would have done well with a big amount of cash to spend... Went for Big Ron myself, but not sure we wouldn't have an average player age of 35 though :oS

This is a serious proposition for the Villa Board to consider. It's the system that apparently works very well in European clubs where they have a coach is responsible for all team matters and another manager or director oversees all transfers. They don't mix the two because presumably both jobs, if done properly, are more than sufficient responsibility for one person. I suspect UK managers would resist it as an erosion of their powers but it is clear that almost 2/3rds of voters here believe that someone elso would do better than MON. I think I'll suggest the poll - "if someone was appointed to manage transfers at Aston Villa, do you believe that MON would be the best coach, or whether someone else would do the coaching job better?". What do you think JF?

Little as manager and Gregory as his no2 gave us the best 3/4 year period we've had for 25 years. Is it too late to bring them back? So Little has to get my vote.
