Villa Fan Says Return For Roberto Martinez

Villa Fan Says Return For Roberto Martinez

Time to Act Now Lerner; Sack McLeish, Unite the Villa and Get Your Man Martinez

A Blackburn debacle can be avoided next season by the sacking of McLeish. It`s now time for our custodian Randy Lerner to reunite the Villa family by the sacking of McLeish. Fulfil the Customer Charter and get the Villa house back order in Randy Lerner we now lay our trust to put it right.

Quote from the Customer Charter;

Our Motto

Prepared… to play to the best of our ability; to involve our fans in everything we do; to champion the game of football


The Middle Ground

Let Martinez be our 'Horizon` his appointment will reunite The Villa on and off the pitch. Martinez was top of your list last summer get him in now for the good of the club. Martinez is ready and wants the Villa challenge. He was quoted to have regretted turning down the interview for the opportunity last summer which he admiringly did out of loyalty to his chair man Whelan. Martinez has been quoted as ready for a new challenge so let that challenge be Villa. His philosophy fits in with our academy and he has proved to have great motivational, man handling and coaching of youngster`s skills same as Brendan Rodgers at Swansea.

Most Villa fans will welcome and unite under a new progressive managerial appointment (Martinez) to lift these dark clouds hanging over our club currently. With an experienced respected football figure like Houllier who has been at our club and highlighted our shortcomings especially in regards to our squad, discipline and scouting network. He has been quoted to have shown an interest in taking up a DOF/Technical type of role in the near future. He has the reputation and respect worldwide to attract the kind of players that fit into his and a Martinez style of football philosophy. I can see nothing but success with the wealth of experience Houllier can bring joined in force with the youthful drive, determination and ambition of a Martinez/Rodgers. I can foresee great success and possible miracles being achieved with that double brainstorm of experience and youthful talent united in their philosophy.

Martinez and a director football like Houllier is what we need sack McLeish and GET YOUR MAN THIS TIME LERNER.

On a Lighter Note to Lighten the Mood

My Suggestions on who should leave and likely highly rated Transfers that could prove a real bargain for us if pulled off;

Transfers Out

(Left back) Warnock, (Centre half) Richard Dunne, (Centre half) Collins and (Right back) Hutton.

Transfers In (All the below are very possible signings under a good DOF)

Nathaniel Clyne (Left/Right Back), Ashley Williams (Centre Half), Howedes (Centre half), Van der Wiel (Right back), Yoann Gourcuff (Play Maker), Victor Moses/ Junior Hoilett (Versatile Wingers)

What has he ever done but struggle with Wigan? Why can't he get Wigan playing until after Xmas? There must be better options.

Martinez is an overrated flavour of the month. He took a Wigan side that finished 11th under Bruce to relegation battles for the last few years.

I would agree guys he is not that quality they were lucky against Blackburn - I simply say aim high and get Moyes

Don't pin your hopes on anything coming out of a paper containing the phrase "and is believed to". Newspapers sell papers not news. They will not allow the truth to get in the way of sales. Newspaper GOBS***ERY.

Must sign him. He;s on a rolling contract so available for free. Get rid of that ginger clown now!

Moyes has already said he wouldn't come to a club who'se fans treat their manager the way we treat ours.
09/05/2012 14:46:00
Mr shane villans, i agree.

He takes so long to get his teams playing but so did Houllier last year. Every year he has to sell his best players (like us) and still does a good job whilst replacing them with unheard of quality. He is capable of doing all the main duties without a need for a DoF in the same way that MON did, plus he doesn't sign them up on extortionate (for us) contracts. Eventually he gets players playing his style and it proves to work. If he was given some stable backing then reckon that he could work wonders. Would he get that off Randy and Motley crew though??

astonvilla05 and jbd656 Moyes is too over rated he has the media work for him season in season out. What Martinez has achieved this season when he consecutively beat the top clubs Moyes could never do and has never done in his entire tunure at Everton. Moyes has falls out with every single decent striker they have had there FACT his. I give him his dues his an expert at negative defensive football and his successful at it. Moyes has the media wrapped around his little figure he is a good manager but over rated his brand of football does not excite me at all. Martinez is young and still growing Moyes cannot get any better as manager 'its hard for an old dog to learn new tricks'. Listen to Moye's interviews and actually watch all Everton's matches then actually speak to Evertonians to give you their honest opinion. Then you can make a sensible opinion on him.
