Official Site confirmation… Kevin MacDonald has decided he DOES want to be considered for the Villa job.

Sorry, it took how long to come to that conclusion? Bit confused?!

Hey ho. Our poll asks if you think Big Mac is the man for the job.

There are no quotes from Kevin Macdonald re: wanting the job but obviously, that will be the case now it is on the official site.

Interviews should be taking place this week. Hopefully we’ll get the right man and can all re-focus on the season ahead!?

If Kevin MacDonald does now get the job, the conspiracy theorists will be pointing figures. The accusations I’ve read on our and other forums is that if he is to be the manager, they could have appointed him weeks back and brought in players.

My feeling – despite some reports saying he is firm favourite – is that he won’t get the role. I could be totally wide of the mark.

The reasons I think this is

a) it took him so long (?) to decide himself
b) he would leave a massive gap reserves/youth level
c) the statement from the club say they are looking for Premiership experience
d) there is no d but just three options looked a little on the short side.
