All this goes to show what a mess the club is in. I think we can probably already say goodbye to promotion and hope for a sensible (ha ha) season of rebuilding

Wouldn't be surprised if that's the end of the DOF model. Let's be honest it's been a total disaster since Ashworth left.

Most of the successful clubs in the last few years have had one though. It’s a bit like us saying “out head coach hIres have been **** recently so let’s do away with the role and let the players pick themselves”.

We just need to get the right one.

The man has done a terrific job with the youth set up and academy he has totally transformed both … at Villa
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

TBF has he played a blinder for them. As we all thought all along his damage to our academy was not worth it.

Almost certainly now Lai seems to be having some say in matters.

This appointment probably as important as the next team manager. Do Lai and Ken know where to look? Hope its not some business contact in China with zero understanding and contacts in the English game. He needs a sound commercial, business background, plus real football knowledge, including being a good judge of players. In theory, he also gets a major say in choosing the next manager.

I don't see how this is bad timing, it's perfect timing surely?
We can now look to bring in a cohesive team to prepare for the new era. I thought that's what everyone wanted?

Not interested in outside opinions. This is the best thing that's happened to the club for months.

Perhaps the stadium caretaker (Miles?) who apparently blocked Wilder could be the new DOF - we could do with a clean sweep at the club!
Trust me on this we do not want Mark Miles in charge  if you think Dowling is bad this would be end of story.

Quality , exactly. 

Good riddance in my book.

Perfect timing to get a cohesive DoF and Head Coach team in place

Been told previously owner Guochuan Lai had lost faith in Dowling. Simon Stone BBC

Everyone says Lai knows nothing about football...maybe knows more than we thought ;)
