First day back into full blogging mode and I thought it may be quiet, nope, not the Villa way.
After seeing reading all the reports over the past 10 days I really thought Houllier would be staying, the wrong decision given his health but too much stuff going on indicating he would stay.
Then this morning we see that Mat Kendrick has said tomorrow Villa will announce he will leave by ‘mutual consent’ and not even stay on in a DoF type role which was expected by most he would do.
So now we have a strange situation where player transfer talks have been undertook as confirmed by McAllistair over McGregor and players released but it appears the team who made these decisions will not be here. Now unless these is a choreographed move and Moyes will be announced in the next 48 hours this will leave us vulnerable to further accusations of dithering because IMHO and none medical knowledge, there is no way Houllier could have continued from the time he took ill.
So it looks a mess, UNLESS, any moves were sanctioned by the incoming boss because he has known for weeks he would be the new manager (my betting being Moyes).
To prevent a repeat of last summer’s fiasco, we have to see a new manager in place within 7 days.
This is simply one summer that can not be compromised by boardroom dithering.
