Clubs Beware - O'Leary On Prowl

Clubs Beware - O'Leary On Prowl

Clubs beware. Former Aston Villa and Leeds manager David O'Leary is on the look out for the next victims, I mean team, who he can go and manage.

DOL left Villa in July 2006 and has been out since. He now says he is ready to return to the 'right one'. That's good of him.

He told Sky Sports News, once again talking about himself in the third party, 'It's got to be the right one. If the right one comes, you'll see David O'Leary back pretty quickly,'

What, not made enough money being paid off by two clubs for alienated both players and fans O'Leary?

O'Leary's time at Villa came to an end after a storm over transfer funding at the midlands club.

Interesting to see if another club will be willing to take a chance on him? When he first came to Villa he did get us playing ok and I'm sure with money he'd have spent far more freely last summer in comparison to our current manager, he'd have actually have had a field day, but what use is that when he splits the dressing room, spends the time reacting to fans and alienating press along the way?

If only he had learnt from his Leeds days how to deal with public relations, who knows, he might even have made a decent manager, but he seems to me to be totally self centred and only interested in number one. If I was a club looking for a manager, I'd put his application straight in the shredder and move on.

Recognises and buys a good player - just doesn't know how to manage them. If Doug is asked for a reference he'll never work again!

Too bad McLeish pipped him for the bloos job!

I personally would love to see DOL back at Villa Park with another team. Imagine the atmosphere! I saw his interview on Sky. He looks like something off League Of Gentlemen.

Times must desperate for old DOL-ly boy, maybe his bank account is running low from playing golf and s****ing hookers, cant he write another book or something?

His stock has to be at an all time low. It will be a brave chairman who offers the guy a route back into management.

What? are you lot deluded? DOL was one of the all time greats of football management! Just look at his CV, its speaks for itself!

There's a lot in DOL's locker that speaks for itself KSarge1. Thats what will hold him back.
