Contrary to what some are reporting, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not turned AVFC down. He has not at any point been offered the job.
Some are saying this is a Villa media circus.
How is it?
They released a statement saying they will update us when they have chosen the manager full stop.
Ole came for an informal chat and if not for people tracking the jet sent to get him, who’d have known?
Ole explained why the jet, ie so he could show Villa the respect to talk face to face and still get back for his Molde teams weekend game.
Is it any disgrace if he or his family don’t want to move back to England?
Is it any disgrace that Villa may have decided there are more experienced options open to us?
The Ole mania has been strange. 39 managerial games and as he said in his documentary, if you cut him in half he bleeds Man Utd and yet some are stomping around like we have just missed out on Mourinho?
Yes, it would have been intriguing but should the board be gambling on someone with little to no top level experience?
If we had lost the first few or been bottom half would people have remained calm?
The media circus has all come from Ole’s side if things, not the Villa.
Candidates have been interviewed, it won’t be long until we know who is coming.
Where is the panic?
As said, he doesn’t want to be in the running now, where is the issue. I guess forever more some will say he turned us down.
You have to have been offered something in order to do that but I guess some won’t let facts get in the way of a good rant.
The press, twitter/Facebook and these sites with our 24/7 appetite for information, and especially the itk’s I wrote the article about yesterday have blown this up.
Villa have done nothing wrong and yet it is the Club being slated right now.
Our one forum poll ( which manager) had Ole way below other options. Then all of a sudden Ole mania broke out. Maybe things will settle again now and fingers crossed we get the right manager announced shortly.
Sooner the better to be fair!
( will add links to polls tomorrow, working on iPad and it is too fiddly!)
