    Default soccer fans opinion please

    hey all
    im a villa fan and am curious if your club had gone through 3 managers in a year.
    who would be your next choice ??
    ancelotti according to the papers is taking a sabbatical..
    benitez wants back to the premiership.
    jol is also liked with moyles and mc clarren too and heard on a villa fan site maybe klinsmann in the mix too...heard mention of owen coyle too
    its better to burn out than to fade away

    alex ferguson.

    But seriously, I'd have to go for Mark Hughes. I don't know what I'm talking about, but I'd pick him.

    I'm a Chelsea fan mate so I'm probably the wrong person to talk to about managers but I think Owen Coyle would be a great choice, Ian Holloway wouldn't be a bad decision either.

    There is alot of talk about Mark Hughes going there.Martin jol would be perfect for them he did a great job at spurs and i have to say i was disappointed with spurs for sacking him.But if i was a villa fan i would be worried about what players will be there next season.Brad Friedel has gone to spurs and i know he is getting on but he is still a very keeper.All the talk is about Young and Downing now and there was talk off Dunne going to Arsenal.So you have more then the manager to worry about.

    Being a football manager in top league clubs is no longer about footballing knowledge or tactics! Players don't play for their country with passion anymore the most certainly don't care if there club wins or loses (there is the odd exceptions)

    To be a good manager you need to be an excellent man manager and earn the faith and trust of your players. This is why Paul Ince failed at Blackburn and is succeeding at lower levels. Roy hodgsen at Liverpool never won over the dressing room.

    Aston villa and their boardroom staff a present need to sit down with Gary mcallister and see if it's possible to keep downing, young albrition etc... If you employ a manager and he loses two or three good players it's hard for that manager to replace them and as a result the team will struggle and fans and the boardroom will be onto the manager until he leaves or is sacked.

    If qpr replace warnock I think he could be thick enough for the villa job

    (excuse any spelling errors or grammar errors)

    I don't think the ship has sailed on Mark Hughes, but it's looking like Steve McLaren's job to lose now.

    I've heard Ranieri mentioned too but might log into Paddy Power and put a wee cheeky bet on Martin O'Neill

    Personally I think o'neill seen that villa were doomed and he jumped ship!!! If o'neill returns I think it will be to replace one of the top 5-6 team managers... Possible next spurs man if Harry gets the English job! Only thing that may stop him going to London is the commute and family commitments
