Wasn't appreciated at the time and could have done for us what Bill Shankly did for Liverpool. Shame on Herbert. Thanks Ron for wiping out those 3rd division years of shame and leaving something that can't be taken away. I know it's probably no big deal to you 'cos you were only doing your job. Just hope PL pays attention and does even a quarter as well.

Strictly speaking jbd656 Doug Ellis was not Chairman of Aston Villa when Saunders left Viulla for Blues, Ron Bendal was, however it is a widely held belief by many that he was behind the removal of Saunders by Bendal. Either way its all water under the bridge.

Question. If Brian Little walks on water, what exactly does Sir Ron Saunders do? The Greatest Manager we've ever had! Once again, Happy Birthday Ron.

My enduring memory other than the 'I expect 110% every game' in the programme notes is the night we beat Liverpool 5 - 1 and that was the score at half time. They were the top boys in European football at the time, it was cold and misty night under the floodlights in Brum and the atmosphere was electric. But at half time the Holte End just burst into a rendition of 'Saunders, Saunders, Saunders'. It was proper hairs on the back of the neck stuff and will be with me until my dying day. The man is and is likely to stay the most important Manager in my lifetime of supporting our great club. There are legends and there are people who some call legends but in reality they have just have served the club well. Those that I put in the legend status are firstly Saunders, then Paul McGod and Brian Little.
