I do know Danny Mills was of those annoyed by this criticism and spoke out it. To compound that, and despite knowing the squad wasn't happy, he brought a book out about his tenure in the Leeds job just a month after the trial of Jonathan Woodgate and Lee Bowyer. It ljust looked like blood money and this was pointed out to him at board level. That was the beginning of the end, Leeds tapped Martin O'Neil. Thinking O'Neil was a done deal they sacked him. Large transfer fees are ultimately signed off by the chairman but that tarnished him as well. Club football is a small world and he was given a chance at Villa but I think this baggage followed him.
So as a coach, he might do well but as a manager and as a man, it would be difficult to trust him ?

I think that came apparent Aston Villa because it made it hard was for the players to really to trust him. It got to a point where he just couldn't motivate them.
