Manager Speculation Round Up

Manager Speculation Round Up

To see out the night cleanly, there are a few more links to Martinez and even a mention of Gareth Southgate in the papers today.

Martinez - Forum Thread

The People suggest that Randy Lerner and Paul Faulkner spoke with the Wigan manager prior to the meeting with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they have an un-named and unquoted club source saying the job is Roberto's if he wants it. But add that he refused to commit to us until he had heard the plans of the Liverpool owners.

Southgate - Forum Thread

They also state that we have sounded out former centre half Gareth Southgate. Again nothing in terms of substance for this link either.

Lambert - Forum Thread

They also say we have cooled our interest in the Norwich manager.

But back to Martinez -

Click Lancashire suggest that Martinez would actually prefer a job offer from our goodselves, than Liverpool. They say we spoke to him on Thursday - which would tally with meeting him prior to OGS - and that the discussions were positive.

Now it differs slightly from the People report, because it implies Martinez is seriously considering us over the Scousers as opposed to the implication I read into him wanting to here what Liverpool's plans were - but that could just be me seeing too much into things.

ole for me... People go on about Wigan's great run when backs against the wall, but fail to remember that Wigan had a run of 8 loses in a row to get them into that mess in the first place, would the Villa faithful have stayed quiet with that on display? I doubt it. Give Solkjaer the opportunity.

Southgate?!?! Bring back McLeish - lol. Agree with onlyteaminthemids. Southgate left us to join a "bigger" club in Boro, and he should never have a role within the Villa again. End of.

Must say I like the idea of OGS, was a bit dissapointed when the yellow band appeared on sky news Saturday saying he was not coming. Now who knows? we will see what this week will bring if anything? COTVABU

No chance Southgate. SSN sources understand the job is Mick McCarthy's if he wants it. He has been seen in the vicinity of Villa Park. Reports suggest that a local resident spotted Mick emerging from a nearby establishment with a steak and kidney pie and chips and Karl Henry. The resident first became aware of their presence when Henry took his legs from under him. Mick was heard to mutter as he walked away "Tha' were nowt wrong with that challenge. He took the ball.....well both of them actually"
