Why Panic. Ole Hasn't Been Offered Anything YET
I don`t understand the panic at the moment.
Villa said this week:
'The Aston Villa board has embarked upon an interview process which will lead to the appointment of a new manager.`
It is obvious isn`t it? We lose a manager, we get another, to do that, we talk to several and then decide!?
Anyway, this Ole Gunnar Solskjaer one. Looks like the UK press, being the UK press, are wide of the marks in their interpretation anyway, and Collymore on Twitter didn`t get his facts straight either (and has now apologised)
As I said early, Ole HAS NOT TURNED DOWN ANYTHING because he hasn`t, as yet, been offered anything.
Do we really not want our board to talk to other candidates before deciding who is best?
Our very own Villan Of The North (yup, he lives in Norway) explained the Ole quotes:
The translation gets across much of the meaning but it's incomplete, it misses out Solskjær's own quotes where he says that he's sorry for the way it's all come out, communication could have been better, he wants to focus on his job at Molde, he has not been offered a job and has two years left on his contract at Molde and expects to keep to it.
However, he does also say that should Villa want to talk to him again or offer him a job he would have to address the situation as and when it arises.
I read that as no decisions have been made either way and OGS will only make one once presented with a chance.
Tweet from his Norwegian strike partner....who was interviewed yesterday on SSN about OGS.

My feeling: If Aston Villa offer Solskjær the job, Solskjær is Villa- manager 1st of June. #avfc #talksport
Are we seriously at the stage where we panic if Ole doesn`t take the manager job?!
And do you seriously not enjoy all this? I love the ducking and diving, the ups and downs of the odds etc, I think it is great fun. More fun quite often than when the actual manager is appointed!
