You have to laugh with The Sun. How about this for a headline. 'Squeaky Bum Time' !!!!!!!
The report by Sean Custis says that the Blues are getting worried with the job vacancy across the City and want to offer Alex McLeish a new contract to stop him being attracted to Villa Park.
The report says Two weeks ago, McLeish said it was 'nitty-gritty' time and that he had been in discussions with his lawyer about the new terms. But there has been no resolution and it is believed Fulham were ready to move for McLeish had they missed out on Mark Hughes.
Remember, this is the man who guided Blues to 9th and as the report says, got Rangers on a shoestring budget to the last 16 of the Champions League.
So... well, there really!
Some say that Mark Hughes is still of interest to Villa.
Another 2+2 = new manager time was the news that Bob Bradley had quit as USA boss. However, that news seems wide of the mark. MSG has misreported on our initial report, suggesting we reported that Bob Bradley had either resigned or been fired. We did not suggest either had happened, only that, according to our sources, it was unlikely Bradley`s contract would be renewed.
I repeat, to my knowledge, the applications will be taken, agents will contact on behalf of interested managers, criteria will be/has been set, a shortlist will be drawn. Advice will be taken. Then talks will take place. Seems the sensible way.
Interesting article by Nimmo on Bradley. I do think he'd be one hell of a gamble at the moment though and maybe one that Villa shouldn't take. To quell 'concern' they really need a 'name' I would think? Potential Manager: Bob Bradley
So there you have it. We have some nice names in the frame, we'll just have to carry on speculating who will get the hot seat. We are one of the biggest clubs around, so there won't be any shortage of takers that is for sure.
