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.

Ole confirmed HE HAD NOT BEEN OFFERED ANYTHING.

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.

If family and Molde were the real reasons, I don't see why he would've had chats with Villa in the 1st place. I hope i'm wrong, but i've got a feeling we're in for a summer of managers coming to speak to us, realising we've got no cash, the talks then going no further (repeat for all the decent managers) and then we'll be left with another terrible manager again, maybe Steve Bruce this time.....fingers crossed i'm completely wrong!

Glad to see OSG has come out and said it. We can forget all the hearsay beforehand. Time to move on now. No harm, no foul. Totally hope we get someone soon though.

Yes, it's nice to have it cleared up even if the national journos can't see further than the end of their collective noses....

C'mon Fear. If it says it in the paper it must be true. They got it right about Mcleish. We hated him because he came from Small Heath, not because because of his godawful football, his abject failure to motivate the players, his dismal understanding of tactics, his appalling record and his deluded excuses. None of those mattered. Just accept what the press says. You'll feel better.

He has still in theory turned down the "chance" to be considered as Villa manager. So he HAS turned us down...... ;o)

lol, Dear Mr Pedant from Nottingham... bugger orf! lol. The way the press and to be fair even some of our own fans are going on you would have thought that he got offered the job and has decided against it. My info (and it is to be fair bloody good info) is that there are others over and above him. But even if he had just decided it wasnt' right for him and that he wanted to stay in his hometown, that still wouldn't explain the panic but some or some of the rubbish being said / thrown at the board!

I liked the fact that he thought it was well worth meeting Lerner and something along the lines of "a good contact for the future" ... who knows what that means to Villa though

I don't see the difference. he turned us down, wether we had offered him the job or not. Frame it anyway you want ... but thats the reality of it. If the press frame it as he snubbed us, then so be it. Everyone should just chill out and enjoy the summer sun. As soon as BRENDAN RODGERS is appointed manager we can all relax.

Definition of turned down : to decline, refuse, refuse to accept, rejected. He has "refused/declined/rejected" the opportunity to continue exploring working with Villa due to family reasons. Ole has TURNED VILLA DOWN due to family reasons :-) The confusion isnt over the action of turning down its what hes turned down. Papers make it sound like the turned the job down, instead he has turned down the opportunity to pursue the job.
