Sven NOT About To Be Appointed

This really is the silly season now, as if we didn't have enough to put up with looking at player signing rumours! lol

The bookies have slashed the odds on SSven Goran Eriksson being the next boss because apparently he was seen in Birmingham.

Oddschecker (not on commission, go where you like, but these have all different odds for different companies!) odds for next manager:

He might have been in Brum but as Villa have yet to draw up a shortlist, look at applications and assess options, there is no way he is about to be appointed on the hoof like that!

More important is "where is Randy". Surely knowing his whereabouts is more telling. If he too is in Birmingham, then maybe he has met him for an interview. Randy must start somewhere, and as I understand, Sven has noted that he is interested! The bookies have there "sourses" more so than the journalists, otherwise they would be bankrupt!
i can see it now sven will be on a stage with cover an outer caseing and the fans will wanna see martin jol or huddik and then the unveiling takes place and its sven and eveyone gasps and the whole ground is silent and one person shouts "BO*****S"

Olof, with the greatest respect, Svens record in the England is *****, you could do a lot better
I work in Marston Green (right by the runway) and I'm having cravings for chocolate and Marmite sandwiches........I think if I AM pregnant (I'm a 37 year old bloke) then there is only one explanation......Sven IS in town.
I for one would definetely support Sven IF he were to be introduced as the new coach, i already feel more excited going onto the season (when it comes to MON, the most outright exciting thing that could have happened this window WAS him walking), although for the moment im just really geed to see the boys walk out at VP with Kev Mac right behind them! Hungry for Spam, serbanz.
Sven has been a journey man for a few years since he left England in 2006 - Man City, Mexico, Notts County & Ivory Coast. I personally think Villa should go for Jol or Klinsmann.
I think the negativity towards sven is media created for the most part. His record for England was outstanding, and at club level it speaks for himself. He did better in his year at Man City than Mark hughes who (i can't understand it myself) a lot of people on these forums seem keen to recruit. I think he'd attract some top players (and could even pull of a coup like bringing in beckham) and boost our profile. I'm not sure success on the pitch will boost villa's profile as much as doing what it takes to attract top players. Our success on the pitch over the last 4 years didn't seem to do it, our manager seemed to be the stumbling block. Just an opinion.
I still say hiddink. At whatever cost.
villawillrise, I'm beginning to think that the "will" in your name stands for william?? Again, who is your choice rather than jumping on everyone elses.
holte ender 1969
VWRA- If i was Wills, i'd pay hiddink myself to come to VP!
you know what, if he is apointed, i will stand there on my own chanting ***** of sven...
holte ender 1969 and ruggaboy- lol-Out of the realistic targets (i.e not Loew or Hiddink), then Klinsmann. OK, he messed up at Bayern, and Loew was the tactician behind Germany in 06. However, he's young and Randy is patient (MON jumped, he wasn't pushed). Would like to see a long term manager at Villa, like Wenger and Sir Chewalot (copyright, Vital Villa).
Dont worry to much guys, I jumped on the number ''11 Bus'' and hand posted my Application (C'V) for this Job at the Villa office today. I will let you no haw my Interview goes, Im sure gonna be looking for a (P'A) within the next few weeks. :)
It was definately him. He is hear. I saw him with my own eyes. I work at the airport as a dispatcher and I saw him gettin off the aircraft. Don't get me wrong I would have rather seen martin jol. But is eriksson's record all that bad. Done great things In Italy, not excellent with England but then again is any manager. I think it could me a good appointment if that's what he is hear for. But mark my words he is in Birmingham.
Isn't 'Randy Lerner' his porn name?
VWRA- well at least someone is the slightest bit optimistic in these dark days. I wouldn't put loew in the same league as hiddink. Loew actually has made visible progress with ze germans and i don't think hiddink is being put to full use as manager of turkey. But, we'll end up with sven, get huntelaar with the leftovers from milner's sale and we'll be alright... If only it was that easy!
Can't see why anyone would want swen. Even if he did any good he is 62! and in a few years could retire. We need someone for the long term, someone starting out that is still hungry for success and not just filling there pension fund up.
ruggaboy-Agree with you that Hiddink is wasted in Turkey (as he was in Russia, S.Korea and down under). (No disrespect to those countries). Think Loew is in Hiddinks league. (Or will be v.soon). If Villa do end up with Sven, then will get behind him, and hope for the best. Still not convinced by him though.
Please NOT Sven. I'd rather have Ulrika sorry Stan!!
Just A Lerner
VWRA- the thing i meant with the comparison of hiddink and loew, is that loew actually has a future(a bright one at that) with germany and i'd be very surprised if he wasn't in charge come the next wc. With hiddink i can just see him running down his contract in turkey with no real purpose or direction vecause he hasn't got quality players under him. At least if he came to villa he would actually be appreciated. Because let's face it, turkey aren't going to win anything anytime soon!
Not Sven :(
Hiddink would be amazing and I'd love Jol but lets face it neither will be arriving. My money is on Bob Bradely, he's a cheap option and with the increased US link would possibly open up marketing avenues out there.
