'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Doris The Tea Lady Or O'Neill?

Didn't take them long.

The odds for who will be the next Villa mug, MANAGER, sorry, keep getting confused are out.

Former Charlton boss Alan Curbishley is evens to get the job. Curbs left at the end of the season saying he wanted a year out of the job, is he really foolish enough to come and work for Ellis?

What seems the fans popular choice Martin O'Neill is 2/1.

Bolton boss Big Sam Allardyce, still smarting from missing out on the England job is 8/1 as is Villa legend Gordon 'Sid' Cowans. That'll be to big a leap just yet?

Former Villa and Arsenal, as well as England u21 boss David Platt comes in at 14/1 as does Graeme Souness.

Sven Goran Eriksson is at 20/1, although the odds don't say whether that includes a 'fake sheikh or not'.

David O'Leary's assistant manager Roy Aitken, just back to work following a cancer scare, is at 20/1 as is youth team coach Kevin McDonald.

Former Spurs, Southampton and Wolverhampton boss Glenn Hoddle (oh and he managed England, nearly forgot that!) is at 25/1 and Gary Megson comes in at 50/1.

Doris the tea lady is decent odds at 80/1 and Doug Ellis is still just a pratt.

Wonder what the odds for Peter Reid?

As I have said on another article - if O'Neill takes the job, I'll make his tea every day for free. Won't happen.

You can't go offering to make tea when it's Doris the tea lady's job. Unless she becomes the new manager, which is worth a punt at 80-1

I would rather have Doris than most of those candidates. It must be O'Neil or Curbs.

For goodnes sake, please not Sounes or Hoddle, may as well get Dr Joe back if we are going to stoop to that level.
