Best manager for years past and in the future by the looks of things. Shame that the clueless Randy told him to build a squad and then decided to change his mind by selling his best players to Man City every ******** year. Unlike Spuz with Modric, he went for the money rather the success and stability.... Some people don't know when they've got it good. Randy worked this out and appointed Eck because half the fans will boo whoever is there so it didn't matter whether he appointed the worst manager around. Whilst talking about MON wasting money, who wasted money on Eck?? How do we know that Randy wasn't integral in wasting money on some of the dross players under MON's tenure????

Villan444, MoN finished 6th with a net spend of over £80million? David Moyes got Everton fourth with a fraction of that amount literally only about £10 million net spend so did MoN really do that well? he waisted a lot of money on average at best players like Harewood Beye Heskey Knight Davies Warnock Dunne Collins these few players who are not great at all cost us nearly £40million, he sold Bouma Davis Cahill Ridgewell who all could have done a job as these players ive listed MoN bought for £40million which would have saved us a lot of money and we would not have had the wages issue we have suffered since he left us with.

I used to love MON, but to do what he did and leave when he did, it was completely spiteful and I will never forgive him. He had a clear plan to leave when he did and he knew what a mess it would cause. If he had any dignity whatsoever he would have left at the end of the season but it was all about him once again.

Clive, the team was always in need of major investment. Sadly Bouma HAD to go, he was never coming back from his leg injury. Cahill wanted to play every week and he was too inexperienced when we had Olof and Laursen. Ridgewell is average at best. Dunne Collins and Warnock were 3 out of the 3rd best defence in the league in his final season. None of them would come to Birmingham (as it's not very appealing)unless they were on good monies. LOL @ he had a plan to leave. And it's only taken him 1.5 years to get another decent job. Why did the courts pay him if he wasn't entitled to the wages?? Seriously??? He fell out with Lerner (which a lot of fans are doing at the moment ) and he was told that everyone was going and Ireland was coming. Faulkner and Randy told him this. As we all know they know sweet FA about football. I would not be prepared to work under these constraints either. MON kicked and headed every ball for the players and he got 150% out of them. Those that he didn't were mercenaries or fools and similar to Reo-Coker and Beye took us for all that they could money wise. MON should have done more research on them but he had to do everything himself as Randy was never here. MON was literally Chairman, chief scout, Manager, Press Officer, Tea Lady etc.

All I can say is that if McLeish can't motivate the players to put out a performance against MON then he has no right being in the hot-seat at Villa Park. Forget the for and against arguments, the evidence will be all too conclusive.

The bloke went from hero to zero the moment the news broke. I hope we stuff them on Saturday, not that I think it very likely with AMc in charge.

Why are people quoting Dunne / Collins are Warnock as awful signings? As 444 said above - our defense was a brick wall in his last season - even despite the fact we'd lost Laursen! Or have we forgotten that fact? He did good things and bad things for villa - Heskey in particular stands out as a shocking signing, but i'll always remember the great times we had - 15 goals in 3 games, beating united at old trafford. Lee282 - mcnugget couldnt motivate a batchelor at a strip club! Think we'll lose on saturday, and it might be ecks last game if we do!

villan444, I like your stance against McMuppet. However you are seriously misguided with your love in over M'ON. Please read the prophets and losses thread from 18th April. It will take a good 15 minutes, but it will hopefully give you a balanced view of how little M'ON did for us whilst bankrupting the club. In effect he spent all of our money, won nothing, produced less per pound spent than almost every manager in the League, and then when he demanded more even though he had taken the wage level to an unsustainable 88% of turnover, and never got it, he threw his toys out of the pram. We all enjoyed the night against Blackburn, the beating of Small Heath 5 - 1. Equally I hated Chelsea stuffing by 7 and Redscouse battering us by 5. The cup runs were nice, but he had the luck of the easiest draw imagineable in both the League and The FA Cup (have a look to remind yourself who we played en route to Wembley). But as soon as we met a proper team we blew it. Randy let M'ON loose with the finances and we all loved it at the time, but ultimately M'ONs disregard for the finances and his failure to get us a return on the investment has led to the position we are in. If he had stayed and worked under restrictions that had to be imposed, we would have been better off than we are now, but he slapped us all in the face and left. But please look at the prophets and losses thread before commenting. It will highlight just how much Randolph has invested and why he simply couldn't keep providing M'ON more money.

MON had a net spend of 80 million from a team that finished 16th. Do you think a net spend of 80 million would take this current team to 6th? Just a question, but in my opinion not a chance. MON walked away and whether right or wrong the club have payed him not to give the reasons why which in my opinion says a hell of a lot. MON is a very dignified man and does things his way, rolling contracts so he doesn't need to have a pay off if sacked etc. I would give anythign at teh minute to go back to teh days of MON in charge probably the best manager we have had for 20 years and the best we will ahve had in the next 20 the way things are going. People need to get a grip on reality!
