Seeing Martinez and Grayson up there is getting really scarey...
Pride of Lions thanks, thankfully bruce and Mcarthy are way down the list... Martinez??? still not sure, I mean bruce did a better job at wigan in fairness.
What the odds show from the last week or so is that the bookies have no more of an idea then us fans.
Randy bollox
nah, just depends on where the money is going usually Mr Bollox sir. Interesting though! lol
The Fear
Lambert is the bookies favourite according to odds checker: Go get him Randy!!
Bobby Norman
Strange how Solskjaer is still 5-1 with Sky Bet. Maybe he is still waiting for an offer from Lerner. I'd wanna shaft someone who is blackmailing me to stay in my job, which is what theoretically Rokke is doing to him. I think the children and wife issue is just a smoke screen. Fingers crossed eh ? I'm really not excited about having Grayson or Lambert. As I've stated before on here attractive attacking football is what the Villa fans want to see, I only see Poyet, Di Matteo or Ranieri (from those in Sky's betting) who would bring that.
It looks like the bookies have no more of a clue than the press. The prices change every time someone puts a tenner on. Watching Poyet as he moves in from 33-1
Apparently Paul Ince had a meeting yesterday with PF...!! :(
Adam Deuce
Simon Grayson, no thanks, not exactly vibrant is he! Ian Holloway anybody, lets move towards eccentric instead!!
From one Ole to another. Good Bristol boy, get in! Poyet, yes. Grayson though, no way! Anyone disagree about Grayson as he is now favourite with Sky bet?
Gastard Villan
Yes. Grayson's not favourite anymore!! The power of my typing did that. Come on Solkjaer, get you're boney rumper over to VP!
Gastard Villan
Not sure where the opposition to Grayson comes from. His record is pretty good, albeit in the lower leagues.

05/06 saved Blackpool from relegation.

06/07 Blackpool promoted through the play offs.

07/08 Blackpool finished 19th in the Championship (not great but their best placed finish since 77/78).

08/09 Leeds finished fourth in League One but lost out in the play offs.

09/10 Leeds finished second and were promoted.

10/11 Leeds finished seventh.

11/12 sacked by Leeds when they were 10th in the table (they finished in 14th place.

11/12 took Huddersfield to a play off final (next Saturday).

All in all not a bad record. One problem is that he signed a three year deal at Huddersfield just three months ago. I, for one, will be happy to renew my season ticket if he is appointed.

going to quote that in the forum thread Mr Teapot, cheers for that.
The Fear
Thanks Choc, great answer!
