Much of the press talk today is understandably about Liverpool and their vacant manager position.
It is no real surprise that Martin O'Neill is one of the names dominating the talk, along with Fulham boss Roy Hodgson.
The Daily Express go so far as to suggest that MON would consider the move if Liverpool got new owners. Well, new owners aren't close if my understanding of the situation is correct. The report also says that time is running out for MON to manage one of the truly big clubs in the game. Ouch!
Our forum thread on the Rafa sacking/MON to Liverpool appears quite lively! Click Here
They appear to be arguing the pro's and con's of Martin O'Neill over at liverpool-kop.com with an interesting comparison of spending for Rafa v DOL/MON
The one interesting quote is: 'O'Neill creates *stability* at clubs he manages. For example: At Villa, he has bought 28 players; 24 of them are still at the club.'
The odds on Martin O'Neill with William Hill at the moment has him as favourite at 6/4 with Kenny Dalglish (who has distanced himself from the job) 2nd at 9/4. Roy Hodgson is 3/1 and Gus Hiddink 8/1
Interesting times. The best way to stop this press speculation? Well, Martin O'Neill could come out with a statement saying he isn't interested, that would end it pretty quickly I would think.
Over to you Mr O'Neill !
