Aston Villa Review: Episode 163 - Roberto Di Matteo sacked

124 days. We've had colds that lasted longer. But 124 days was the total length of Roberto Di Matteo's managerial tenure at Aston Villa, by whom he was sacked this week after Villa's latest games against Barnsley (another draw, another late concession) and Preston North End (rubbish) didn't go his way. Even after five minutes in the job, few seem surprised or upset.

In this week's Aston Villa Review we stick the boot in. Chris and Steve talk about Di Matteo's performance, weaknesses and sacking, and, of course, the vital question of who might be coming in to replace him. The list is uninspiring, but them's the breaks. There's no game to preview this week because of the international pause, so the ex-manager gets both barrels instead. Lovely.
