Bob Bradley The Bookies Favourite As Villa Boss?

Bob Bradley The Bookies Favourite As Villa Boss?


And so the madness begins...!

I must admit, I love the build up to a new manager. Forget who said, might have been Skeggy, but it often like Christmas as a kid. The build up is superb then you open the present and you are underwhelmed! lol. Hopefully that won't happen to us, we deserve a top manager to take the good work that Martin O'Neill has done building the foundations forward.

One that I'm not sure is going down too well is the bookies current favourite (these odds will be so up and down over the next week) is USA international coach Bob Bradley who guided the American team to a group win over England's 'stars'

Surely they are putting USA owner, USA coach together and coming up with the answer? Can't see it myself, he doesn't have the experience this side of the pond?

On Sky Sports the manager has admitted he would like to manage abroad.

'I have said over and over as well that I am always excited about new and different challenges. Certainly coaching in Europe at some point is something that I would love to do. At the same time, I also consider it a challenge when you finish one [World Cup] cycle and begin the process of working on another one. From the time one World Cup ends, you begin to go through the process of assessing where you are.'

So there you go. We will try to keep you updated on managers ruling themselves in and out and of course, any solid action that happens.

Why no? I think he'd be great - enthusiastic and had the USA playing great football at the World Cup. I'd much rather him than chumps like Southgate, Mowbray, Curbs etc.

Look at a manager's teams. In the world cup game USA vs England, who played the most attractive exciting football with a limited set of resources? Who got players to play out of their skin? Who does this in the Prem? Not many to choose from, but on that basis, Bradley is as good as the Curbishleys and Jols of this world IMHO.

No thanks. We need to source within Europe. At this late stage we cant afford to go with an unproven manager. Guus Hiddink please.

You'd be very lucky to get a good manager in, I'd say it'll be someone with little experience at a big club... not that thats a bad thing tho (look at Moyes).

Hopefully we give Kevin Macdonald a chance first. We would be daft to rush in when we have someone to try out for free that knows how to motivate out average reserve players to being at the top or near the top season after season. I think he should be given the chance for the start of the season and then if he does well give him a 1 season contact and like MON and see how he does. Macdonald is also likely to give the youth a good amount of games if he knows they are good enough. I did like MON but in a way I'm quite glad he is gone as it gives us a fresh start and I don't think he would have improved Villa anymore as he is to stuck in his ways. At least now the fringe players that were going to be sold off cheap have the chance to show there worth. Maybe it was factoring that more and more of our players were against MON and led to his decision. And if he is a manager that jumps ship as soon as it gets a little tough then I'm glad he is gone. I thank him for a few good signings but he out weighed those with plenty of rubbish signing and as he has spent 120m, he should have done better.
