Random thought of the day. There have been 20 permanent managers of the Villa in my lifetime (21 appointments if you include Taylor x2). I'm old enough to remember 19 of them. God I feel old.

We must be the same age.  I remember them all except Vic Crowe.

Yep, in my 50th year.....

49th for me.  You old bastard! ;)

Dick Taylor was manager when I first watched them, in 1967.

Just on a slightly different tack, after going on the VP tour today, and being told a few things, itís clear how much all the staff at the club think of Dean.

I heard similar comments about how well thought of he was among club staff from someone who worked at Walsall during his time there.
