Young Hungry Dynamic? Managers Linked To Villa

Young Hungry Dynamic?  Managers Linked To Villa

Roberto Martinez asked on BBC Sport (video) to the link to Villa.

James Nursey at The Mirror says that Villa will look at Wigan manager Roberto Martinez again and also have an interest in Norwich manager Paul Lambert.

For 100% sure he is right that they want to bring in a young, hungry manager!

I disagree with James on the link for QPR manager Mark Hughes. I believe with good reason that is a non starter.

The ITV news site says that Randy Lerner is flying in today to begin the search for our new manager.

Mat Kendrick at The Birmingham Mail links Lambert and Martinez and also says that Brendan Rogers from Swansea could be looked at. Must admit, if that is the case, I`d go Martinez as he started the 'revolution` at Swansea and could be a decent, young, long term manager for us.

Mat also says that Alan Curbishley and Kevin MacDonald might be looked at again as they were when MON left.

Oh and also the same one that I`ve heard a few times, Roberto Di Matteo could be considered if Chelsea don`t take him on permanently. I believe Mat to be wrong in the possible link to ex-Liverpool manager Rafa Benitez.

Brighton coach Gus Poyet is also mentioned. Nice rumour a few weeks ago by voiceoftheholte said if Poyet came, he`d bring Gianfranco Zola.

West London Sport.com also link us to Mark Hughes, again, I believe totally wide of the mark (see what I did there?!) and why would we really?

there are potentially some truly outstanding managers on that list, but I wonder how much the possible lack of money available will play a part in the decisions of some of these managers, who will perhaps feel that with another good season and even Prem stability in the cases of Lambert and Rodgers will put them in very strong positions to move to a club that has money and at least the same potential size and history that Villa undoubtedly have.

Before we get carried away on the manager merry go round, does anyone remember what Alan Pardew was doing this time last year? Worth thinking about that before any candidate is dismissed out of hand

There isn't a lack of money, they were balancing wages etc, even more wages now off the list with Bosmans, now they have re-grouped and will provide funds. There are the fair play rules now to follow.

i would be happy with either. And yes fear, lets not forget they gave the previous guy 20 million to spend. Hardly peanuts. I think the next guy will have a decent budget.

With the academy recruits coming through, the fair play rules will actually suit us.

Young and hungry? We're probably trying to get Jonathan Antoine...

My preferences would be: 1. Lambert 2. Martinez 3. Villas-Boas 4. Rodgers 5. Poyet. Any of those managers would make me a happy Villan.
