Does Jim Barron count? 100% win record. I'm sure people know this but just for fun, what was the year, the score and the opposition for the game he took charge? If you can name the scorers on both sides I'll be even more impressed.

Wasn't he in charge of the 4-3 at WHL?

Were we three-nil up, then they pulled it back to three-all? I think Saunders scored the winner. Can't remember who got the other six.

I'm not old enough to remember Saunders, GT Mk I or even Big Ron, so I don't have a best Villa manager really. Well OK, Sir Brian.
I do feel sorry for you Monty. There are some disadvantages not many but some to being young.

Yep 4-3. Our scorers were Dalian, Deano and Fenton got 2. Klinsmann, Sheringham and a Bozzie og for them akthoug the og was decided by the dubious goals panel after the game, at the time Klinsmann was credited with it.

Best: Little
Favourite: Little, Gregory
Worst: McLeish, Lambert
Least favourite: McLeish, Lambert, O'Leary
Biggest disappointment: O'Neill. Spunked millions on dross and threw away 4th with his dinosaur tactics and signing Heskey.
