Next Villa Manager Odds!

Next Villa Manager Odds!

Deanovilla has just started a thread in the 100% Vital forum: The Next Manager Odds

Just noticed there are currently 2 bookmakers giving odds on the next Villa manager, despite the fact we already have one... strange.

Not reading too much into it but thought it would be interesting to share -

Here's the Top 10 candidates according to Victor Chandler and Stan James -

Victor Chandler -

Benitez - 8/1
Curbishley - 10/1
MacDonald - 12/1
Solksjaer - 12/1
Martinez - 12/1
Bruce - 12/1
Moyes - 14/1
McCarthy - 14/1
Lambert - 14/1
Rodgers - 16/1

Stan James -

Benitez - 3/1
Curbishley - 6/1
Bruce - 8/1
MacDonald - 10/1
Solksjaer - 10/1
Martinez - 10/1
Moyes - 10/1
McCarthy - 12/1
Lambert - 12/1
Keane - 12/1

Not the most inspiring bunch of names in the world ay? Benitez would demand, and then probably waste money. Some would big big gambles on little experience. Others are offer the experience but are what I would consider 'safe' options not exciting at all.

Depressing isn't it, that this would be the best on offer should McNugget finally get the boot.

We also have the 'who would you have` thread: page one of (currently) 38... Click Here

My mum could be on that list and I'd be chuffed. At £2/3M who wouldn't be!!! ;) I'm glad the bookies are sensing movement in our hot seat! Come on Randy, you're not that daft are you? 3rd time lucky anyone???

You know you've got a bad manager when even Steve Bruce looks like a good option!!!!

We are stuck with Mc Leish for at least another season even if he is successful in relegating us come May. Randy looks like he does not want to show us that he 9randy) made a huge mistake in appointing Mc Leish in the first place. The only thing that might make him act is the ever increasing number of empty seats at VP. On a different note I wonder what kind of reception will MON get on Saturday? I blame him for the situation we are in now, had he been a better Manager and not so ready to throw Randy’s money around then things would be very different, COTVABU

Neither list inspires me. I can just remember how well we did this time last year under --- wit for it --- McAlister. Who would have guessed! No, I'm not suggesting him, but I would prefer McDonald to be given a chance for, say, another 5 games.

I'd actually be quite excited if Martinez wa appointed and possitively orgasmicif we got Solskjaer, he has a huge manigerial future to look forward to.

Which Keane is that at 12/1?? I'd take Solksjaer, Martinez or Lambert. Dont think Rodgers, Moyes and Benitez would come and the rest are bloody useless.
