So many at 20/1 indicates the bookies have not got a clue. Slaven Billic just agreed yesterday to become Spartack Moscow boss and yet he is a 25/1 shot! Clueless

i was worried about bookies odds but it shows by putting mick mccarthy as a fav is just stupid.. complete money making scheme
16/05/2012 17:14:00
I know that there is no chance of getting villas-boas, but it would be good to know that villa would make an approach for him at least to signal their intent on getting a good young hungry manager, can't deal with hearing more about McCarthy nearly cried when i woke up and saw his odds first thing this morning.

I'm very childish I know but I love all this speculation etc, like a kid at Christmas! lol
The Fear
16/05/2012 17:28:00
villa should prosecute the bookies for putting mccarthy as a favourite because it's a sick joke
16/05/2012 17:33:00
The reason the bookies put Mcarthy as fave is they know some fans or betting folk would look at the last appointment and think the Villa board will appoint another Midlands manager same style etc i take this with a pinch of salt... Lambert or Rodgers are realistic and would do well here building team for the future and playing attacking entertaining football along the way..
16/05/2012 17:36:00
Could somebody please tell me why David o Leary is on this list!
16/05/2012 17:43:00
its an insult to even put mccarthy on the list - never mind as a fav!!!!! makes me feel sick
16/05/2012 17:48:00
Talking to a Swansea season ticket holder today at work, and apparently Brendan Rodger has got a 5 million buy out clause in his contract so that option looks unlikely. Shame, would be my choice. HH2 is right, the bookies know nothing on these things. The 2 candidates that have been backed on the exchanges today are Kevin MacDonald & Simon Grayson.
16/05/2012 17:59:00
i wonder when we will have any updates because there has been no noise today at all regarding villa
