Who Do You Want As The Next Manager?

Who Do You Want As The Next Manager?

Our last poll asking: Who would you like to be the next Aston Villa manager? Has by the looks of it been 'invaded' by someone who is multi voting or some other forum is trying to have a laugh at our expense!

Therefore, I've cut down the options for our new poll on the same subject!

The results for the previous one had Gareth Southgate ahead on 30% whereas until someone had started to have their little 'joke' he was on 1%

Other results:

Guus Hiddink 24%
Martin Jol 15%
Bob Bradley 10%
Jurgen Klinsmann 4%
Other 3%
Sven Goran Erikson 3%
Slaven Billic 3%
Keep Kevin MacDonald 3%
Gianfranco Zola 1%
John Gregory 1%
Alan Curbishly 1%
Phil Scolari 1%
Alan Shearer 1%

Sven's odds have come in big time this afternoon, I fear that the bookies know something we don't.

I remember when Celtic were looking to replace Strachan, Owen Coyle was 1/7 and then the bookies stopped taking bets on him... so they can get it wrong! Last season I had money on Terry to stay at Chelsea and it was 4/6... unbelievable odds!

Can't get enthusiastic about any of them on the list. In fact most would be on my worst options list. However gun to head it would be either Hiddink or Yol. What a mess O'Neil has left us with. Thanks a lot Martin.

Guus Hiddink is clearly the outstanding candidate on the poll list(s). He is, without a doubt, the coach that any Villan with a smidgen of football knowledge would pick. The reality is, of course, that Villa haven't a hope in hell of getting him. Unless, that is, you believe that he wasn't linked to the Liverpool FC job, because he was biding his time for an offer from the Villa. Get real! Roy Hodgson and Mark Hughes would have both been good fits for AVFC. Sadly, it looks like it's too late now! Klinnsmann, despite his problems at Bayern, would probably be the best of a so-so bunch.

Klinsman would be a disaster, his problems at Bayern were due to the fact that he is a crap manager, he had a great no. 2 when in the German job and stil only had about 4 really good games. his entire managerial experience amounts to three years, only one of these in club management. The Klinsman myth is due to his playing days and he was a phenomenal player but that rarely makes a great manager. Klinsman is all PR and no experience, I'd rather have MON and I was one of his most vociferous critics, calling for his head more than a season ago.

I used to work as a bookmaker and have prepared books on next manager odds , inside info is very rare , it's purley weight of money to balance the books, the only exception I remember is when we took a bet off a premiership goal keeper i won't mention on who his next manager was going to be. the early favourite very rarely gets the job.

Thanks beastman, that makes me feel a little better. For my money we try the v unlikely Hiddink, and then if not Jol (he could brig Suarez with him if he likes! :D)
