Looks like he's gonna take over at Sunderland....hardly a move up. My question to you is, do you think MON will ever manage a bigger club than Aston Villa?

No, definitely not. Mediocre manager with some fatal flaws. He's lucky to get the Sunderland job in all honesty.

Well Sunderland have a bigger stadium.

I dont know if their owners are richer than ours but they certainly seem more ambitious at moment and know when to sack a crap manager.

Of course we have better history etc

But all seems bit empty that at moment doesnt it?

Depends how he does with Sunderland.

Good manager though, despite the bitterness in these parts. We have been a shadow of the team since he left, and I expect Sunderland to go steadily up the table until reaching a natural ceiling of around 6th/7th.

I don't care.

Besides, arguments, pointless arguments, over what constitues a big club, will ensue, making this all the more futile.

All this "We're a bigger club than you" is quite frankly childish, pathetic and embarrassing. My nephews who play under 12s go on about this stuff to their "rivals".

Well he's still a much better manager than either of the two full time managers that have followed him.

But rarely does it work out that a manager returning to a football club has a successful second stint. So overall a No from me, even though it is now written in stone we will lose to Sunderland next time we play them

As bickster said second appointments never work out.

There are other managers out there than MON - young, upcoming managers with something to prove and quite spectecular records like Southamptons manager. Maybe not the youngest at 46 but plenty of years to offer a club willing to give him a chance at the top.

Depends, If this is on the hypothetical grounds of anyone but McLeish.

no...we played some of our best football under him but must remember the numerous shocking ones too. signings? more poor ones than good ones IMO. take away milner, dunne, young, and downing and you struggle to think of many proper good players that he bought in
