Almost Half of Villa Fans Pro Martinez, a Third Against and the Rest on the Fence
Villa fans need to stay alert today as a decision could be made over Roberto Martinez’s potential move to the club with Lerner believed to have set a deadline of this afternoon for the Spaniard to make his mind up. Speculation grew yesterday that Randy’s plane made a sudden trip to Corsica leading to dreams of a renewed swoop for Carlo Ancelotti, who turns 52 today, could he celebrate it by becoming Villa’s new boss? Not likely! Martinez call is by no means a done deal and a snub from the young manager would be a real setback to the club’s plans, but also could be of extreme detriment to its reputation. Of the poll questioning the fans whether the 37-year-old was the right man to take Villa forward, split results came back, as expected, though I was pleased to see a slight swing in the favour of a move. Off an agonisingly odd figure of 499 voters, 233 were pro Martinez (46.7%), 171 were against (34.3%) and the remaining 95 (19%) were on the fence.
