    Default Aston Villa - Alex Mcleish - your thoughts?

    As a Villa fan, im must admit I wasnt overly thrilled about this move but he is here now so we may as well get behind him.

    BUT the thing that bothers me is, Steve Mclaren wasnt interviewed due to fans' unrest, so the club take on AM whilst the fans are protesting.....A LITTLE CONTRADICTORY to say the least.

    Football in all seems to be all about £££ these days, nothing is "real" anymore.

    Whats your thoughts?


    Bye bye Vec B

    don't really see what difference it makes where he comes from myself, surely it's about how he does in the job?

    Players join rival teams all the time, dont see the problem, I think McLeish is a good manager tbh.

    were my first thoughts. I just don't understand what the board are thinking. It's not just the fact he's a bluenose, but is managerial record of late is poor, took them done twice in 3 seasons, ok so he won the CCup last year but also got them relegated too. He had success at Rangers but to be honest it's a two team league anyway so he had 50:50 chance he'd win something!
    If he brings in some decent signings and gets a good start to the season I might change my mind but has somebody said today you wouldnt employ an engineer if 2 of the last 3 buildings he'd built collapsed!!
    My 2p's worth anyway!

    The trouble you found yourself in last season culminated from allowing Martin O'Neill to slip thru your fingers after steady improvement. Imho opinion McLeish is a bad choice, and after watching tonights BBC news at 6pm the general opinion from fans is........

    If you think about it, its actually a logical appointment because he has gotten above average perfomances/results from average( at best) players(scotland) and thats exactly what he needs at Villa, as they are an average team at best..

    Good manager with a decent record..

    You were happy with Martin O'Neill and he won his trophies in Scotland............now the thing is Alex McLeish won more trophies in Scotland than O'Neill, he also won a treble whilst having to cut back a team. That is why your owners have employed him, he is looked at as being able to do a 'reasonable' job without much money, hope it works for him.
