revua says 'Kevin Macdonald may be the best man for the Job?'
All this talk about who our new manager will be is rather exciting but I hope we don't miss the potential Gem right under our noses with Kevin Macdonald.
I really hope he gets enough games to prove himself and would personally like him to have a full season in the hot seat.
I know quite a few Villa fans as usual will be deluded in thinking getting the most high profile (expensive) manager will be the best course of action. We need stability and I don't see a new manager coming in right at the start of the season that does not know the players can bring us stability.
Aston Villa reserves have performed excellently for some time now under MacDonald and considering we are supposed to have quite a weak squad compared to other teams then these results deserve even more credit.
We would have a manager that would know the players well and especially knows how to get the best out of our youth coming through. Is this not what we need right now? I'm sure he would instill the winning mentality into the first team as he has with the reserves.
A nice win against West Ham with the team playing well may get Villa fans thinking the same way. We also obviously need to keep our wage budget down so we can buy new players. O'Neil leaving has freed up some money so I don't see the sense in taking on one of these high profile managers that are just going to come here for the money and command multi-million pound contracts. None of the names I have heard mentioned have I filled me with great confidence so why take the risk?
We have the chance to try a manager that is not going to cost us a lot, we don't need another ego like O'Neil that is stuck in there ways. We need someone that does not think they are bigger than the club! To me it's a no brainer to let MacDonald show what he can do for a whole season and then if things don't work out we can prepare for the new season with a new manager.
This will give us time to look at other managers and you never know who may become available by next season if Macdonald does not prove what I feel he is capable of doing. He also has experience as assistant manger with Ireland and he is of the right age to be unearthing a quality first team manager. He may not have the experience in the transfer market but surely he could not waste any more money than our past managers.
If he can get us winning regularly, good player will be attracted and maybe he will have a better idea of what to look for in youth players so we can start buying player of the future rather than ones closer to 30 than just lose us money ! Thanks for reading and I look forward to your views.
