Steven Gerrard - Aston Villa Manager

Recommended Posts

Good move for him I think. A decent stepping stone perhaps. Rangers fans might disagree but the timing is about right as well.
 

He’s probably got 2.5 seasons to prove he can replace Klopp. 
 

Needs to keep Villa up first mind. 
 

p.s. I was worried he might have replaced Bielsa at Leeds next season so another reason to be sort of pleased.

If he wants Klopps job then the brief is simple, stump up £100m for Ox and Keita and get them fit and dominating games. If he can do that then forward the CV to John's yacht and they can have a chat.

Bad move, in my opinion. He will be on a hiding to nothing. Villa fans, a bit like Evertonians, have delusions of grandeur. Realistically speaking, what can he expect to achieve there? A Europa League place and a decent run in the cup competitions.

He's not gone there yet. If he does, I hope he does a decent job. I can gradually go back to wanting him to succeed again. Strange move though and no matter what Chris says, Villa aren't a bigger club than either of the Old Firm. Bigger league? Absolutely. Bigger club? Not a fucking chance. 

 

If he can get Villa challenging for Europe in the next 2/3 years then it's possible he could do well here.

Fan Of Old Firm Club Says Old Firm Clubs Are Huge.

 

This is a giant leap forward for Gerrard.

Hate Villa after they kicked me out when @RedKnight flogged me some stolen tickets. Hard to take for me this. 

I think the 2001 FA Cup Semi-Final was the last time I saw a match a Villa Park. I’ve never been a fan of Birmingham, though. I had the worst chippy food I’ve ever had from a place in Digbeth.

Digbeth is a brilliant place. Loads going on there now.

They are huge cubs. It's ridiculous to suggest otherwise.

It has been gentrified, hasn’t it? It was a bit of a shithole when I was last there.

Decent sized clubs, relatively speaking. Nothing more. You're living in the past. They're only relevant to each other.

Yeah, there's a really good brewery there now called Dig Brew. The Dining Club is ace too and there's loads to do of a night too. Historically it was a really cool place too. I wrote about it last year.

You're just showing your ignorance. Both have been to European finals since Villa won their European Cup. Both are huge globally, Villa aren't.

Yea, big cubs. At most you can suggest Celtic are better represented worldwide. They have won nothing in Europe for near 60 years.

Villa won a few since then and make double the revenue. FFS Villa were to crack the top 20 revenue sides in the world like 5 years ago.

Have you got anything to back that up mate? Huge globally? Exactly who is watching Scottish football around the world. I'm in the US most of the year. Premier League's fucking enormous now. Villa games are often on the equivalent of ITV. I've never had a conversation with anyone about Rangers or Celtic. Premier League? 3-4 times a week. 

 

If you're going on the basis of 'there's loads of Scots and Irish in other countries then they must have a huge global following' then that's a bit flawed. Honestly mate, god love ya, but no one cares about them apart from each other.

 

To use an American analogy, it's practically minors to majors for Gerrard.

Looks nailed on now. Sounds as if Cecil will give him the funds to buy football players. 

 

That's Cock Piss Purslow, if you please.

Both have a far bigger global fanbase. If they came to the premier league they would overtake Villa in 2 seasons at most and Villa wouldn't get near them again. They're suffering from the league they're in.

Doesn’t matter about how big Villa are in relation to the two Scottish clubs, Villa are playing in a much tougher and competitive league, it is that which will test Gerrard as a Coach more than anything else, whether it’s Villa or someone else.
