Sir Ian Of Taylor has spoken with www.expressandstar.com calling for a bit of patience.
The Villa legend says:
"I think a lot of fans are getting a bit worried but I know the club are fairly relaxed about the whole thing and not rushing it to make sure they get the best man out there. The last two managers didn`t work out for whatever reason so I think everyone knows how important it is for Randy to get this appointment right."
Adding, "You can understand the frustrations because in this day and age with Twitter and the rest of it there seems to be a constant focus on what is going on and every little thing is scrutinised. Obviously if you can get someone in quickly the sooner they can get to work on everything, but there are a number of factors to consider so a few weeks in the long run is nothing when you think about it."

Can`t argue with that. Must admit, I think the longer it takes, the better the appointment has to be and logic suggests the better it will be. ie if they were going for a cheap / quick option they could have hired one of several who are out of jobs like Curbishly for example.
The fact the net is being cast wider and hopefully they are just waiting for the right one to be available should give us hope and promise for the new season.
Can`t wait for the man to be revealed though! I must admit, I`m extremely nervous, this appointment really is crucial, it will define where this current owner and board are planning on taking Villa and will decide the era. The last mistake has been corrected but another, from the moods on the message boards and amongst fans, I don`t think would be tolerated.
I`m hoping and praying, like the majority I know, that we get our smiles and swagger back for next season. The doom and gloom of the last two seasons is exhausting.
I guess being the 30`th anniversary of Rotterdam also serves of a reminder of what we once were and sadly what many of us still dream of us being.
So, we`ll wait... we`ll pray... please get it right AVFC!
