56 people voted for Hollaway, that is crazy

Holloway would be brilliant. Agree only 56 people voting for him is crazy. Attacking football and 100% effort (which is all many Villa fans reasonably now ask for) would be a given. Sorting out the football structure and ethos of the club fom top to bottom would be another given. His humour, banter, and rapport with the press, media, and players is also always his big win win win - in these terms along with John Gregory, and Happy Harry he is the best, and believe me, would win Villa fans over too, even if you persist in thinking he is a clown who once made a dismissive comment in response to our bid for Charlie Adam. Why - because those that look openly and see what he does - including most "professional"commentators and pundits now see him for what he also is - an astute tactical and thoughtful manager at the cutting edge of good football - as well as a thoroughly decent and, yes, fun character. Olly's Claret and Blue Army could happily have a Bristolian twang leading it for me, rather than OSG (another good guy, who I am not against, but has hugely less managerial experience).
