Garde hasn’t gone yet, but Moyes is chomping at the bit to manage us.


Well, ok maybe “chomping at the bit” is a bit of an exaggeration, but the Mirror seem to think that he’s definitely interested in taking charge of the club.

I’d seen something similar earlier, while glancing at the news yesterday evening, but this article goes further in suggesting that the Villa are the only club he’d contemplate going into the Championship for.
Which is a pretty strong suggestion, if you consider that Newcastle and Sunderland might well be coming down with us.
Some might suggest that they’re at a similar level to us, after all.

So what’s changed between when we apparently sounded him out a while back and now?

Well, Moyes openly said all along that he was committed to the Sociedad job while he was wanted, which is admirable and fair play to him.
But I wonder if he said privately, that he’d love the job, if he was in the right position at the right time?
And if he could have the shout, with no transfer committee undermining him?

I wouldn’t go as far as to suggest that there was some sort of verbal agreement done, but I do wonder if there might have been some sort of understanding declared, as in if it suits both parties, it’s game on?

While I often doubt the Mirror as a source, we have to remember the Evening Mail is a sister paper, so you just never know if there might be something in this.
That said, Garde was apparently gone yesterday and it hasn’t happened, so all papers talk proverbial.

Moyes has consistently been amongst the candidates as Villa manager over the last few years though and to me, it’s understandable. He just seems a very good fit, for some reason.
While he was on a hiding to nothing at Utd, he did a very good job at Everton, another club who were until recently seen as at about our level.
But I do wonder if he still has that “spark”; that something that sets top managers apart?
I’ve advocated Moyes in days gone by as a good choice, but now, I’m not so sure.

As a manager to take over a struggling Premiership club, I think he’d be fine, as he’s pretty solid and knows what’s wanted.
But as the man to get us promoted again, I have serious doubts.

Basically, I wouldn’t know what to think if we were to appoint him; hence I’m asking your opinions.

And why do I have a sneaky feeling this story has been touted to see what the fans think?

Whatever, I’m happy to oblige and a poll might help;

    daveC i have been saying this for ages, our current crop of 1st team players. are in my OPINION the worst ever to wear the clubs colors. not only are they mostly talent-less,but they haven’t tried at all for most the season. remi gardes has been undermined by most of them. the so called established ones like richards gabby bacuna instead of helping to create a united dressing room, have destroyed the team morale. only the last 2 games have they worked like a team.

    the new board need to review the players like they have the old board members they fired. because these players like the old board are a big reason why were are heading down.

    bacuna wants to play champions league with ajax lmao i thought it was easter not aprils fool day

      Our illustrious captain, Richards, was also there.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
