This Thursday Aston Villa FC will announce Gerard Houllier as the new manager of the club.
It also looks as though Phil Thompson is leaving Gillete Soccer Saturday and Jeff and the boys to move to Villa Park as Gerard's No.2 just like he was at Anfield under Houllier.
But the most annoying thing is that before Houllier has even signed his contract, our 'fans' are moaning already!
'Have you seen previous players he has signed though?' 'I have a friend who supports Liverpool and he thinks Gerard Houllier is a bad manager; therefore we are all doomed!' and so on ...
The man is proven in the Premier League! I think that if you look at the comments from the majority of Liverpool fans you will hear what I have heard; he gets his team organised, motivates his players well, has a great scouting system across the world with his contacts and in the words of the majority of Liverpool's fan-base, 'turned Liverpool FC around.'
The man has achieved success everywhere he has ever been! His win percentage is on the same level as Martin O'Neill and more than anything else that impresses me, he wants to come to Aston Villa to prove himself all over again in English football because he feels he has 'unfinished business.'
So just a quick message to all of those 'fans' who keep moaning, unless you have all had actual premonitions and can see in the near future that Aston Villa get relegated because of Gerard Houllier then please shut-up because what good are you doing?
The guy hasn't even walked through the door and some people want him out already!
You're not fans of the Villa at all if your just going to moan and complain about how all of the current candidates aren't (in your opinions) as good as Martin O'Neill. However if you actually look at Gerard Houllier's history, some of you might see that this guy can actually claim to be better than MON and actually have the evidence to back it up in the form of trophies and league titles he's won!
It's a shame some people have to slate our players and future managers from believing stories in the papers or what they here from one of their friends believing it must be true, but I just want to point out that the majority of Aston Villa's fans are still fully behind the club, fully behind Randy Lerner and fully behind Gerard Houllier and (if he is coming to the Villa) Phil Thompson! Gerard Houllier, (for Thursday) welcome to Aston Villa!
GERARD HOULLIER'S CLARET & BLUE ARMY!!! UTV!!
Aston Villa have six players away with their countries in the October international window.
Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
Manager Tim Sherwood has given his normal Monday briefing, and goalkeeper Brad Guzan has also given his thoughts as frustration reigns.
