Now, it could still all fall through, but it seems like our favorite former Aston Villa manager is on his way to Sunderland. Not that this is a huge surprise to anyone, I would think.

I know us Villa fans are having hard enough times with our manager at this minute, but let's not look at the MON era with too rose-colored of glasses. The club is still trying to offload some of O'Neill's ridiculous pickups. His players can't play under any system than the long-ball punt. If Sunderland give their -- assumed -- new manager a blank check, they can expect to still be picking up the pieces when he leaves in a huff.

Your thoughts?
