    Two Champions League winning managers in the Championship next season then.

    Surprised to see RDM come to Villa tbh, surely he can do better? What's the rationale behind him coming, as there has to be one?

    Knows the league having got West Brom promoted a few years back. If the new owner has promised him adequate funds to push for promotion in his first season, plus continued financial support afterwards, then taking control of one of the biggest sides in the Championship, building your own side from almost scratch, and restoring their PL status might look quite an exciting proposition.

    Where could he have gone? There were rumours of Lazio. But I question whether that's a better gig. Do they have the funds, or the intentions of pushing the top 4/5 sides in Serie A anytime soon?

    We can probably pay him more as well tbh, despite our current position.

    Big job at a big club, if he can turn us around then that will be the appeal; it's a challenge. Plus he lives in Leamington so he can continue living there and commute to work lol.

    Steve Clarke being responsible for the players will be good as he is a proper coach

    Di Matteo and Clarke could be a winning formula.

    You look at the calibre of managers they've served as assistants to - Mourinho, AVB, Dalglish - and it's an impressive list, to be fair.

    Didn't he leave a while back? Like a few weeks.

    I'm sure he's a nice guy in real life but my word he is one annoying **** on AVTV.

    This relegation could turn out to be a good thing.

    The rebirth of Villa is possible. That's if Wolves don't stop yee.

    Some clubs need to go down to be reborn. Look at Leicester and Southampton.

    Let him go and free up the wage bill. No point having him around if he doesn't want to be there. Clubs like Bolton have ruined themselves financially keeping hold of their highest earners.

    He's too lightweight anyway, gets knocked off the ball far too easily.

    Yeah I wouldn't mind if he left tbh. Skilful player but never really did enough in the appearances. Amavi interesting Liverpool supposedly. Be a Dickish move if he left considering he hasn't kicked a ball since November. Saying that, this is modern football
