Aston Villa are in the hunt for a new manager after axing Steve Bruce and there is pressure on the board to make the right appointment.
Last season’s defeated play-off finalists are in danger of seeing their ambitions of a return to the Premier League going up in smoke after a woeful sequence of results has seen Villa win just one of their last ten in all competitions.
That poor run ultimately cost Bruce his job, and whoever takes charge at Villa Park will need to provide an instant improvement if the club are to get back on track in their charge for promotion this season.
Fans are desperate for the right appointment and many have expressed their discontent with reports that former Wolves boss Mick McCarthy is keen on speaking to the club about taking charge, as they hold out for a more inspiring appointment.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
I would welcome the fact that he isn’t spoken to about the job
