Hurrah, the news we have all been waiting for, David O’Leary likes Villa!

The under pressure boss says he will not walk out on Villa. Of course he won’t, he’ll wait for Doug to do what Doug always does and then pick up a tidy cheque for failing as a manager.

He told Sky Sports News: ‘I’m not going to walk away from this football club. This is a football club that means a great deal to me.’

He also says that there has been no meeting with Doug Ellis about his future despite reports this week saying the board and manager were at loggerheads.

Superb. No sign of Ellis going and now no sign of David O’Leary going. Just plenty of signs of the fans all going and more to follow next season.
