So, that Pepe Mel huh?

He seems pretty mediocre.

I think the whole thing will live and die on how well he adjusts to the new language. He seems actually like he's done some decent work and played progressive football. People on here got excited about Lambert taking a decent sized club fallen on hard times, giving it some stability, getting it back to the top flight and staying there - Mel P got a decent sized club fallen on catastrophic times, and got them promoted and into Europe with the chaos going on around him, so he's clearly got something. However, plenty of managers with plenty about them have failed to cross a language barrier, so we'll see.

It goes without saying that I hope it all ends in tears. Bastards

I reckon he'll be good. His name's nearly an anagram of "Me Pele" so he must know a thing or two about football. And erectile disfunction, obviously.

Despite what the more common holier than thou Sandwell fan will no doubt make out, this appointment is not quite what they were hoping for a few weeks ago.

BBC Sport says he wanted to bring his back room staff when originally approached but has agreed not to now. I wonder how that will work out.
His second game is against us. Yet again Villa play a team on a new manager bounce, just like Fulham and Crystal Palace. What are the chances Big Sam goes before 8 February?

So the criteria was clearly a Spanish manager because it has worked well for Southampton and preferably an out of work one.

I still think Pepe Mel sounds like a clown that would pop up on a circus shown on telly at Christmas when I was a kid.

His record looked good until this season. Disastrous run that even we haven't matched so how good can he be?
