It'll all be ok as Johan Lange is apparently putting together a dossier, according to Sky Sports News, thank goodness for the dossier!!  I know there are debates elsewhere on this, but I don't understand why Villa would bring in a Manager with less experience than the guy they sacked.  Gerrard's coach sounds like a top coach to be fair, but that's about the only redeeming feature to such an appointment, if it happens.

Enjoyed the article Dave.  I hope Mr Purslow reads it.

Dean Smith had much less experience than Steve Bruce.

That's the point I was making Lee. Experience by itself is no guarantee of success.

Grealish leaving has really pricked the balloon, as has happened many times before, we were i believe, on the edge of something really remarkable. Vic Crowe like Dean Smith was Villa through and through and both were casualties of their best players being either sold or choosing to move up to a so called bigger club. This time the difference is that the player leaving was we believed one of us. My biggest fear is that the owners will become disallusioned with it all and sell up, thats why the the next senior coach appointment will tell us a lot about the future.

Good article. Nothing we can do but hope it turns out well. One thing's for sure, any manager we appoint does well enough to be considered for the Liverpool job after Klopp goes, we are in for a pretty good couple of years. In addition, I would like to think the club would be ready for that eventually, so it does not have a seismic effect on us. The structure around the club is massively better now than when MON walked.

I agree. We shouldnít get too hung up if Gerrard were to become manager and then went to Liverpool as it would mean he will have done a good job for us.
