'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Villa Fan Just Met Houllier 'Onward & Upward'

Ok, as per usual, following a press conference, (more from us later on quotes etc I'm sure) some are picking on tiny negative points as a way to worry instead of the majority of comments from our new manager which appeared to me anyway, to be nothing but positive.

Anyway, just had a text from a good friend and Villa man (and no, he isn't someone with a vested or self interest, ie staff) who was lucky enough to be introduced to Gerard Houllier. My mate, a fan for 40 odd years said:

'Just met GH and had a quick chat. He impressed me more in two minutes than our previous manager ever did. Genuine, charming, witty, genuinely interested in who you were and why you supported the club. He was even cracking jokes and most importantly said:

'we are onwards and upwards from now on, this is a great club.'

So there you go. A first hand account from a long term Villa fan and his meeting with our new manager.

I wasn't thrilled with his appointment but am starting to get the adrenalin pumping .. i think this season will be ok but we will see more of what GH will offer next season when he can add a few classy(i hope) players .

The last one was hype followed by disappointment. Maybe the opposite here...

This is great, his press conference didn't even a little bit sound like a riddle, how wonderful we have a manager that actually says something that makes sense when he speaks
