Almost Half of Villa Fans Pro Martinez, a Third Against and the Rest on the Fence

Filed under: POLL, Villa Manager 

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.

  2. from a very small percentage of villa fans was this vote taken (i sound like bloody Yoda!) It would be better if you stated that in your title as it sounds like you have polled All Villa fans
