Alex McLeish has now been confirmed as Aston Villa’s new manager. Here is a pic from the 1982 European Cup final with Villa forward Peter Withe scoring the only goal of the game against Bayern Munich. Good luck to Mr McLeish as he will have a hard time winning over the fans who have been very vocal in their opposition to his appointment. Mainly because of his role as Birmingham’s former manager, who are Villa’s arch rivals.
