Aston Villa, and other football teams!
I got all excited with these quit rumours now i feel miserable again, like the average Blues fan does after most weekends. Still there is still hope.

No smoke without fire, as they used to say to me after that unfortunate court case.
Chris, don't ask why Windy. No please don't. No.

Most Blues fans are weaning ourselves of the regular weekly session of depression.

Although small regular doses are probably better than the 'binge depression' most supporters of Aston Park have suffered this week. Seven times the recommended dose is not healthy!

Yes Windy but we shouldn't get away from the fact that Oneill has been good for Villa. I may not agree with some of his decisions but I wouldn't want to loose him.

I want him to go, one final appearance does not make him a good manager. Nor does the UEFA cup fiasco. Bizarre signings. The team running out of steam on schedule et cetera.

Bring in Barry Fry. Now where was a good Blues manager :D

he was a good manager if you wanted a squad of 50 who were just about good enough for Sunday morning football!

He was constantly bringing in players who were meant to be the best ever and after two bad games they were never seen again.

I accept hes made mistakes but what were we like before him. I am in two minds but if a new manager comes in will he have the money to spend. Will we loose our better players like Young and Milner? Should we expect more or are we where we should be. I agreed with him over the eufa cup.

You could get old 'Potato head', I'm sure he'll be needing a new job soon, and your just the sort small club he likes.

Ultimately he wasn't possible to make the big jobs he's had work.

Stop it things can be a whole lot worse than they are now. Look at things objectively, we have reached the final pf the carling cup, we are in the semis of the FA cup, (Who knows we might beat Chelsea) We have only just in the last week dropped out of the race for the top 4. Not a bad season really.

He has made some mistakes in the transfer market but hes also made a lot of good ones

Young, Milner, Cuellar, Dunne, Warnock, Collins, Petrov, Carew

Every manager makes mistakes in the transfer market. 16th the year before he took over. Now after two years of being 6th you are up there again. Hes a fantastic manager IMO.

Coker, Sidwell, Shorey (Loaned out) Harewood, Delph, Davies: There alone theres 35 million pound of players. He has to prune the squad and get players in who will feature more regularly.

But last year the problem was the squad was too small - you cant have it both ways.

Yea his only mistake is that he didnt rotate the squad earlier in the season. We could have a lot worse managers than Oneill. I know I would rather have him than dreary Oleary.

Villa fans expect to win every game. Blues fans are just happy if they can beat Villa once in a while.

My point precisely Paul. Not even Man U or Barca can win every game.

Yes reading some comments by villa fans on football forums you'd think Villa were in the bottom three.
