So not only have we player transfer gossip to stress over, now we have the papers take on who will be our next boss. Ha, I wish I was still on holiday, not had a second to think since returning!
So what have we got so far...
Well, yesterday odds were slashed for Sven Goran Eriksson to become our next boss because he was spotted in Birmingham.
Some think he'd be good, others a disaster. I'm on the fence... ha, I'll get splinters. Has he peaked? Got a great management record at Club level but has drifted in recent years. On the flipside, he has a 'name' in the game and could attract decent players?
Anyway, The Mirror say that he would be prepared to drop his usual high wage demands because he wants the job so much.
The article by James Nursey repeats that David Moyeshttp://www.astonvilla.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=7505262 has ruled himself out but that Sven would jump at the chance. James, same as I said yesterday (Click Here) states that Sven hasn't, as yet, been contacted.
An article in The Guardian, with no quotes etc, speculates that Randy Lerner and Paul Faulkner (our CEO) are not going to rush the crucial appointment and have faith in Kevin MacDonald to manage the team whilst they look at all options.
Another similar, Sky Sports News' chief news reporter Bryan Swanson has been told that Lerner is no rush to appoint O'Neill's successor because the players are happy with MacDonald.
According to The Daily Star Ajax coach and former Spurs manager Martin Jol is high on our shortlist for next manager. Have they been shown a list that at the time of writing the article hadn't been completed then?! :o) However, the report says that Jol won't be easy to attract even though he isn't happy at the Dutch club due to the sales of some of their star players. The report says Jol would want top financial backing. Well, look at the backing MON got, not exactly the stuff of paupers is it? Click Here for finances
Reports yesterday suggested that Villa might still try to tempt Fulham's new boss Mark Hughes.
So... lets start breaking these down:
Who would you prefer, if only these two, Sven or Hughes?
Would you actually like either? If so, why. If not, why not?!
