There are a few whispers coming out of the club that a new manager is set to be announced. Ok, I'd have looked at that and thought when weren't there whispers coming out of the club?
However, I just went to Bet Square to see the latest odds for the new Villa manager and what did I see?
By all the names it says, betting closed. The other sites seem to still be taking bets and as I'm not really a gambling man, I might be wrong, but surely if you suspend all bets, it is because you know something?!
The press association are suggesting that Martin O“Neill could be coming before the takeover happens and I've certainly heard a few other whispers about that, but lets face it, these things are more often than not just rumours with little foundation.
Then, just to add more confusion to the picture, AV06, a group led by Nicholas Padfield QC who are interested in buying Villa, have said if O'Neill is appointed, they will be off to pastures new as they want to bring in their own management team.
They are said to be looking to appoint Danish legends Michael Laudrup and John Jensen.
Bill Howell's report quotes an AV06 source: 'We have heard that Martin O'Neill has been identified by Villa and if that is the case, we will withdraw from the running. We have our own management structure in place and will go elsewhere.'
Interesting times! Seems the Bodymoor whispers are suggesting a new man is about to come in. Could all be pie in the sky though, I'm not claiming any knowledge on this, so don't shoot the messenger!
If O'Neill is coming in, that must surely mean that Doug is on his way out, O'Neill wouldn't be daft enough to lumber himself with Ellis as a chairman, not long term.
