I posted this in another thread, but it’s got lost with so many new posts, all good posts, that isn’t a criticism, before I’m jumped on! Just wanted to know if people agree with points made, and what their thoughts are!

Personally I think we need to address what we want before we decide on who.

Do we want some one passionate about the club? Who has villa in their DNA? If yes, for me Mellberg

Do we want someone who has experience of this league, and it has to be not just being in the championship, but getting out of it? If yes, for me Rafa

Do we want someone new, fresh and current? If yes, for me terry

Or do we want someone big, to make a statement? If yes, for me conte

Who ever we go for, I think they inherit the best squad that’s been at villa for years, and thankfully no one is running away with it yet.

One more point, personally I wouldn’t be against sherwood coming back. but, the problem here is, he failed once, and if it didn’t work from match one, the boo boys, and press would be on his back straight away.

Yeh I read it earlier mate.
I think you make some good points, we really do need to get it right this time around.
I think if you are coached football as it is meant to be played you do have a chance.
Get someone in who works that way and I will be more than happy.
If a boxer won`t throw a punch, he won`t win.
As you say the squad is there already.

Flackie, nice to see you back on here posting .
I agree with what you say, but at the end of the day, even though e would like to, I can’t see us getting a say . You can bet the phones been red hot . We now have a different type of owners .

Not saying that Dr T, didn’t have a genuine love of the club but he didn’t have the financial clout to carry it through . These new owners, it’s their money and not controlled by others . I still think this fair play ruling, may still have some say in who we can get .

We just hope they make the right decision, the Villa plus our sanity depends on it .
Once again, glad your posting again .

I agree Dave, and that’s a great analogy.

So where do you sit? What would you like, and who?

Thanks davedean.
We are still in touching distance. the right man now, and we will still win this division.

Personally, I hope they get someone passionate about villa. I’d love Mellberg. Perhaps with petrov on the coaching staff.

Flackie great shout, that would be a dream team, for all Villa fans . Even better, find a place for Larsen as defensive coach .

Flackie good posts,
I would take melburg with laursen in a heartbeat but these owners will not go for these in my opinion,
Henry could work If he has a experienced assistant with him in dugout,
Seems that Moyes is now the clear favourite?
When he was at Everton he was the one I wanted at villa but not now,
I wanted fonceca this time along with Gallardo but they are not happenings,
You mentioned rafa, only problem there is he fell out badly with purslow when at Liverpool,
Not the best of friends,
If you ask me now who is going to come here I would say Rogers.
He is clearly unhappy with the Celtic board and there transfer failures,

Bob, that’s the best post I’ve read of yours.

Thinking about it, I’d love Rogers! But not sure he would want to leave a champions league club for a championship one.

It's Rodgers or Sherwood for me
Rodgers would be my first choice and I think he could be tempted he has won everything he can with Celtic, boardroom don't seem to be backing him and I have nothing against the Scottish league but this is his big chance to get back in the prem with s pretty good squad, it's not as if we have a poor squad there will be many managers wanting to take the job this time around
Sherwood would give our youths a chance but as you say he is always going to be under pressure with the I told you so group
Henry I'm feeling it at all I think he hasn't got the experience for the job let alone the league and he would only use us a stepping stone if he did get us from the championship
So for me Rodgers or Sherwood I'm 50/ 50 on.
