All today it was rumoured we were waiting for a manager who was on holiday.
We thought Moyes
but it was Martinez and Alan ‘Nicko’ Nixon reporting in the Mirror he is flying back to basically take the job, as if he would turn it down.
I do wish Roberto a lot of luck, he will need it as it stands we need 7 players and now Young and in my mind Downing certain to go and others linked as well like Cuellar and Dunne.
That means a young inexperienced manager with a young and inexperienced CEO will have to get between 9 and 12 players and I suspect that we will not be seeing dream names but a lot of cheaper unknown players.
I wonder how many will be off the ‘Houllier list’ ?
Dave Whelan has confirmed Mat’s report
‘Villa have acted above board and in a totally professional manner throughout. They wrote to me asking for permission to speak to Roberto. He was on holiday at the time and I granted Villa permission.’
but said he expects him not to go, yeah right.
