Ok, so we have Kevin MacDonald unsure whether he wants the Villa job or not: Click Here
One man not in the slightest unsure and putting his name firmly in the hat is USA international coach Bob Bradley.
An interview on BBC Sport from an interview on Radio 5 live has him saying he would be 'honoured' to talk with Randy Lerner about the vacancy but confirms as yet there has been no contact.... surely as it should remain!?
'There have been talks with my representatives to find out the situation.'
Apparently Bradley's contract with the USA international team, who beat England to top spot in their World Cup group remember... as if we could forget... runs out at the end of the year.
Stories not long back were suggesting he had resigned and was due to take up the job at Villa. I was able to pour water on that very quickly, not that anyone listened!
'Following the World Cup there have been some discussions with US Soccer about what the future holds and we will continue those discussions in the next few weeks and we will see what happens. I think that there are challenges on both sides. I have always been excited by the possibility of being a manager in Europe, but we're proud of the work we have put in with the US team and it's important to see that as a challenge.'
He did confirm he would love the job... 'Of course. Villa is a massive club, with a great history and a great following. Those opportunities would of course be of interest. It's pretty clear that Randy Lerner has done a solid job where tradition is kept.'
