Aston Villa - Next Manager Gossip!


Interesting article by Neil Moxley at Click Here saying that Kevin MacDonald could be ideal for Villa manager.

The Click Here have also picked up on Argentina legend Diego Maradona is lining-up a sensational move to become Aston Villa`s next manager. as we mentioned the other day.

I would say to this. No way! lol

Sven Goran Eriksson has confirmed he has had no contact from Aston Villa over the vacant managers job. He told BBC Radio Five Live Sportsweek: 'I have had no contact with them. I want to get back into football. It's a big club, everybody knows that, but I've had no contact. We'll see what happens. There are so many available managers around Europe and around the world, I'm not the only one. And they did very well yesterday so they might not do anything.'

Stiliyan Petrov (amongst others I'm told) seems to want Kevin MacDonald left in charge. Our latest poll asks for your opinion, yes, no or undecided! Petrov said on The Official Site: 'The way he prepared us for the game showed us that he wants to hold onto that job - and I hope we can help him take that job.' Adding they are behind him. 'He has been at the club a long time, done a great job with the youth and he has the opportunity to do it now. I said to him before the game, 'you try and hold onto that job`. He knows it`s hard. Expectations are high and people want success and they talk about big names - but he has the opportunity and he is really determined to stay there. We played really well, we showed what we can do and if it keeps going that way there is no reason why he cannot make his own name.'

And this speaks volumes: 'We moved the ball quicker, we played much quicker, we try to hurt teams and we don't try to just play on the counter attack - we tried to move the ball quick in the middle of the park and in the final third.' I said a few times the 'whispers' before were of the frustration a) at the poor coaching b) at the awful / lack of tactics / and long ball stuff.

From yesterday, Clamour For Kevin MacDonald?

Also from yesterday, including Maradona link, Koeman and more: Manager Merry Go Round - Latest MON Replacements?

One of our users is saying Villa have approached Martin Jol but I can't see anything on that at the moment. Maybe this is from Dutch press speculation or ... not!

NO NO NO to maradonna, Would make our team the laffing stock of england, or even the bloody world. Id rather have ian dowie manage us or phil brown haha. Theres not enough brain cells in maradona's head to understand what he is sayin never mind being 'tactical' would be a nightmare.
P.Avfc
Ive got more chance than maradona, that being said my record on football manager is outstanding

If fat, drug-crazed cheat comes to Villa it would push me close to not supportinmg. Could not stand to ahve my money paying his wages. Plus we would be absolute laughing stock - pretty much regardless of results.

K-Mac for Villa!!!

If Maradona got the job we'd get relegated in more amusing (for everyone else) style than Sunderland when they went down with the lowest points haul, then were so determined to hold onto the record they came back to beat it. Or Hull, who's relegation was just hilariously inevitable. Or the scum, when we sent them packing with that 5-1. But fortunately I suspect Randy also knows this and probably laughed his socks off at the prospect of paying his new manager in a white floury substance and rolled up fivers.

K-Mac for me too!
leelindsay
Get Maradonna, get messi! Problems sorted :-p
AndyFC
I still believe Mcleish is a very likely candidate. Would be good for us, and p... off the Blue Noses. Double result.

Wouldn't suprise me if Maradona ended up at the Hammers. What a vicarious delight, watching the fallout from that unfold.
VillaWillRiseAgain
I dont like Maradona, as a person, but he was an incredible player. What I like about him is that he tried 42 players in the run up to the world cup. That means he has contact to heaps of Argentinan players both young and not so young. If he would be good at scouting players on the cheap from South America, and could get them blending with our English lads (Messi was swooning about Ashley in Twitter) then why not give it a try??
