So, will David O’Leary show us? And what will he show? No barbed comments, just the figures:

Lowest ever points tally

At the moment we have the lowest points tally we have ever had in the Prem for this point of the season, 3 years ago under Graham Taylor Villa achieved just 45 points, our lowest haul in the Premiership. DOL is 10 points short with seven games remaining.

Disaster Of A Season

Injuries aside, this season has been a disaster, lets not even mention Doncaster. The performances have been poor and the fans once again seem split on yet another manager.

Lets face it, we have a manager merry go round at Villa and the only thing it guarantees is that Ellis avoids the full glare of the fans and shareholders wrath. We all know it and yet it happens every time.

I doubt DOL has the ability to ‘beat’ the fans once they start calling for his head, another poor display in the local derbies (or a run across the pitch to salute anyone but the home fans!) and the voices calling for his head will no doubt grow.

Then, unless we get this much talked about sale, Doug will bring in the next man and we’ll be promised the next ‘golden future’.

Happy days.

  • I think that there’s a lot more people still on the side of DOL than is immediately obvious. Results and performances have been poor for the past eighteen or so months now, and he continues to put his big feet into it every time he opens his mouth, yet su

  • Not sure about that glen, although the internet community are only a fraction of the Villa lot in total, it looks like a huge majority from threads, polls etc. Our one poll, DOL out, yes or no came up 89% yes, although the last one did have a 1/4 saying
