Aston Villa - Managers' Records

Recommended Posts

28/03/2018 : I first posted this on AVF back in 2016. It was in a thread bemoaning the record of Scottish Managers of Aston Villa. As I could not find the original thread containing it, I am reposting it here, updated to 2018. It shows all the Managers Aston Villa has had with notes showing the achievements of AVFC (good and bad) under the stewardship of each Manager.

Hopefully, I will be updating this list at the end of this Season! finger-x.jpg
