Lazy National Press - Ole DID NOT TURN VILLA DOWN

Lazy National Press - Ole DID NOT TURN VILLA DOWN

I`m going to keep banging home this point but for some it won`t sink in! The National press, surprise surprise, don`t understand and the constant misreporting will in the end make an untruth fact!

Mat Kendrick at The Birmingham Mail has a report on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer`s press conference in Norway.


My information is there are other candidates ahead of Ole in the queue. Lets hope it is all resolved fairly quickly now and we can start talking about player speculation instead! Then again, I`d rather them get it right this year rather than quickly.

"I`ve told Aston Villa I don`t want to go further in the chats". He also confirms he spoke with Randy and that the Villa owner totally understood the decision.

Ole goes on to explain having consulted with his family, they decided they didn`t want to move back to England.

That is no shame on Villa is it? The way some are talking you`d think that Randy and Paul Faulkner (CEO) had taken Ole out and shot him.

Ole is a wealthy chap, the football list reckons he has a fortune of around £10million, so it isn`t about money for him. He also has a family happy in his hometown.

"My family is the main reason why I want to stay. But there are a lot of other reasons too. I want to be loyal to Molde, I owe them that much, you have got to see the whole picture. But in the end my family was the main reason."

The Ole mania has been a bit bizarre really. I`ve been amazed at how the Villa faithful seemed to get so excited about a manager so inexperienced. If it was a Villa old boy like Martin Laursen I`d get it, but not Ole, a dyed in the wool Man Utd fan!

Hey ho! The search goes on.

The reason Villa fans got excited about OGS as manager is we have just had 12 months of Mcleishes football 2 months ago I would have got excited tallking about Mcarthy or Bruce as manager ! simples.

I think the thing about OGS was it was at last a message from the board that they "get" the fact that the entertainment on offer last season was ***** poor. OGS was someone who talked about turning defences, playing one twos and attacking instead of tracking back and getting 11 men behind the ball. As long as we get a manager who thinks a bit more like that we'll no doubt be excited again. Oh and maybe tries practicing a corner every once in a while ;-)

doubt it very much 2big. Macdonald proved before GH took over that he can't / doesn't want to handle the top job. He does ok with the reserves where there is no pressure and there are no egos to manage, but no way should Randy even consider him.

All. Watch the OGS videos on youtube. They were obviously done for Man U tv, and have a Utd bias, but he talks about his family and living in his hometown. Question, if you were financially secure for life, would you uproot your young family from such an idyllic place, to move to Birmingham. Scene of race riots in the past, and looting more recently. Miles from a beautiful fjord, maybe near to a dirty canal. He was obviously asked if he was interested, he came over at Randy's expense for a chat, and after discussion with his wife, decided to stay where he is. This is a sensible young man, who has always been a model professional, and he has made a considered decision. Fair play to him, and I wish him well. So who shall we have? I look at all the candidates banded about and few fill me with any excitement. I would love to see Stuart Pearce at the Villa, but that is for me I would go for Kevin MacDonald. Brilliantly successful with the reserve team, the players choice, and is now ready to make the step up. Not the exciting appointment that some would like, but probably the best appointment we can make. I would certainly bet that he is setting the benchmark with Lerner and Faulkner.

gmvillan ..... spot on, Di Canio would be worth a punt.
24/05/2012 12:46:00
T.H.F.Chris ............. that game was incredible ... love going to WHL whatever the outcome (except this season !!!).
24/05/2012 12:45:00
He sat and thought about it and bottled it ...... lets get one thing straight, winning the Norwegian Championship is like winning League 2 ....... revamping Aston Villa is a very very different prospect, he wasn't ready and he knew it. He has conducted himself very well and so have Villa, like Fear say's, if it wasn't for 'plane spotters' we wouldn't have been any wiser.
24/05/2012 12:43:00
Sorry villains, sounds like he didnt fancy it whatever the family excuses. I hope you get someone half decent though, I still remember when you sang happy birthday to us when you were 4-1 up.

Two horrific typos above. Sorry!!! Shouldn't be posting from my phone!
24/05/2012 12:09:00
Going to go out on a limb here - Paulo DiCanio.... He's done a great job at Seindon. He's a very intelligent guy, passionate (sometimes a little too much of I'm honest) and would want to play good football. I read his autobiography a few years back and was very impressed with his thoughts on the game. He'd instantly have the respect of the dressing room and wouldn't put up with nonsense.... Oh and he does well in claret and blue! :)
