Even Money For O'Leary To Go

Even Money For O'Leary To Go

Another press release from a bookmaker. This time William Hill have come up with the headline:

O'DEARY! - O' LEARY BACKED TO BE FIRST BOSS OUT.......

Their release reads:

With the club chairman and players apparently on a collision course, Aston Villa manager David O'Leary has been heavily backed with William Hill to be the first Premiership manager to part company with his club this season.

Hills have shortened the odds about him departing first from 5/2 to Even money and Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe said,

'For the players to be demanding a meeting with the Chairman before the season has even started suggests that all is not well at Villa Park, and O'Leary has to decide whether to side with either his players or his chairman - and whichever side he opts for he will be losing the support of the other which could end up making his position untenable.'

Hills make Sam Allardyce 3/1 second favourite to leave first and also offer 8/1 Stuart Pearce; 9/1 Chris Coleman; 12/1 Redknapp; Roeder; 20 Warnock; Jewell; 25 Pardew; Dowie; 33 Moyes; Southgate; Coppell; Jol; 40 Ferguson; Hughes; 50 Benitez; Boothroyd; Wenger; 66 Mourinho.
**Hills offer 25/1 that no manager will leave all season.

David O'Leary's Aston Villa career looks finished but chairman Doug Ellis is determined he will not get a penny in compensation. (The Sun)

Yep - that above comments shows just how much messier this could still become. If it goes to a tribunal or other court case, so much stuff could come out about the club that it is rocked to its foundations.

O'Leary won't resign and the reason he wasn't sacked in the summer was because of the compensation. Well done Doug!

He's on borrowed time right now, of that there's no doubt. Under these circumstances though, I hope he makes it as bumpy a ride for Ellis as is possible. His departure and the subsequent search for a new manager, will only deflect the spotlight away from Ellis yet again.
