Sven NOT About To Be Appointed

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: www.oddschecker.com/football/football-specials/aston-villa-specials

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 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.
