Little Gone !!!!!!! (24 Feb)
Brian Little has stunned Villa park and walked out after nearly 4 years in charge. 

Little walked out on Leicester in 1994 to take over at his beloved Villa hoping to bring back the glory days after the Ron Atkinson gloom in which he saved them from the drop in his first season there. 

In his first full season they finished 4th in the league and at Wembley to thump Leeds 3-0 in the Coca Cola cup final. The season after bought UEFA cup action only for Villa to lose at the first hurdle to part-timers Helsingborg. 
Finishing 5th in the league that season meant another return to UEFA football in which this time they did better, beating Bordeaux, Athletic Bilbao, Steaua Bucharest and currently in the quarter finals awaiting the first leg versus Athletic Madrid. 

Only Monday Little received the full backing of all Villa shareholders at the annual shareholders meeting, leaving to a massive standing ovation after some gruelling questions on anything to do with Villa you could imagine
