On reflection, I actually feel some sympathy for Houllier because I feel he was dealt an unfair hand with the lateness of him arriving. The Liverpool match didnt help matters but I feel the Banner at VP was some what wrong.

Anyways I hope Gerard has a full recovery and I will always remember him for bringing in a true goal scorer!

Well said! although i was not his biggest Fan i wish him all the best for the future.

“Each smallest act of kindness, reverberates across great distances and spans of time --affecting lives unknown to the one who’s generous spirit, was the source of this good echo. Because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage, years later, and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each expression of hatred, each act of evil.”

I know he was sacked by Chelsea, but I don't see someone like Ancelotti staying here for the long haul. He's spent the last 10 + years at AC Milan and Chelsea. I have a hard time believing he would voluntarily stay here more than 3-4 years. As soon as a bigger club came calling, he would be gone. Thats what I love about Moyes. He's been loyal to Everton, and he could have easily left at any time for a bigger club with more money.

Pigs belong in the sty and that shithole's down the road. We're the pride of Birmingham so FFS make Brum proud tonight." -AnneMc

Gerard Houllier feels he has 'unfinished business' after leaving Aston Villa but will only consider a return to management if he is given the okay by doctors.

Houllier ended his nine-month spell in charge at Villa Park after missing the end of the season following chest pains.

Having experienced heart problems during his time with Liverpool, he accepts he may have to follow medical advice if they counsel against a return to the dugout.

However, he has admitted he would have liked to continue at the Midlands club when fit again but had to stand aside as the Villa board decided to look elsewhere and appoint Alex McLeish.

"We had a case of unfinished business (at Villa)," said Houllier.

No acrimony

"There was an option of leaving the team to Gary McAllister, who was my assistant, and I would come back in September but the chairman and owner wanted to go another route and I have to respect that. We left on good terms, no acrimony.

"At the moment I just want to make sure I get fit again and then we'll see. But I will follow the doctors' advice and if the advice is not to get back into management I won't.

"The strong advice was not to go back to business until the end of September but they are happy with the recovery."

Houllier, who worked as the technical director of the French Football Federation before taking over at Villa, has suggested if full-time management is beyond him he would consider a less hands-on role within the game.

"I will still definitely be linked with football," he said.

"It is my life, it is my oxygen and if I have to be involved in another way then I will."
