If it's Bradley (no remotely relevant experience, other than being American), or Ericsson (no comment necessary) I think I may well cry :(. Jol doesn't excite me, but at least he's proven and has contacts as well as a very good track record, so he's the best option I see at this point.

Guus Hiddink would do you proud! Scolari - leave well alone, Ranieri - decent manager!
09/08/2010 19:39:00
No Simon Grayson on the list?

I think Bradley would be an excellent choice. Young, keen, plays footy the right way. I'm voting for Maradona though. What about Martinez?
09/08/2010 19:45:00
I know its mental but what about someone like Marcelo Bielsa who manages Chile?He doesnt speak English so I dont know why Im suggesting him.I think we need someone who intends to be here in 10 years time and has a vision of how we will be playing in the future and will work on developing future teams in the acadamy.Too many clubs just appoint managers for the short term and meander around for years we are running the risk of doing that.

I would want Dunga, left Brazil and would be the best possible manager for Villa
09/08/2010 20:06:00
If only David Moyes was available.
09/08/2010 20:10:00
If lerner is not prepared to spend much money these days, then you could use a manager that can work miracles on a shoestring budget. Step forward David Moyes....

Pellegrini has got good pedigree & is without a job as far as I'm aware. Did great with Villareal & only just missed out on La Liga with Real Madrid last season. Has to be given time though. Not the panic button ownership spurs showed with Ramos. Gutted we just missed out on Mark Hughes. Would have been perfect for us by keeping the squad together and adding a few flair players
09/08/2010 20:20:00
think it will be Bob Bradly - i would like to see Phil Scolari
