Cutler recalled on the Claret & Blue podcast: "His general persona, the way he is, he's desperate to win games and he brought that across with how he spoke to players, the meetings, how he trained, but it just didn't click.
"There was bad luck along the way with that too, we had injuries at difficult times. Given more luck he would've moved forward.
“He's not a bad person and he's not a bad manager, he's a top guy with some good ideas. He didn't deserve that [treatment from Villa supporters], but fans want results and in the end the results never came. That's just the way it is. There's a way fans want to see Villa play and they want results."
