Two Front Runners & A Mystery Third?!

Two Front Runners & A Mystery Third?!

Of the bookies front runners, which one would you like?

Poll Date: 27 May 2012
Suggested By: JP Fear

Interestingly the two (press talk) front runners come out on top:

Paul Lambert 36%
Roberto Martinez 23%

Then:

Gus Poyet 20%
Roberto Di Matteo 11%
Rafa Benitez 10%

So, (yeah, I know... but we have to occupy ourselves some way don`t we?!) our latest poll asks ... straight choice, Lambert, Martinez or neither!

The front runners are interesting, the odds have tumbled for them both,

Paul Lambert 11/8 and Roberto Martinez 7/4

The nearest then is Rafa (who won`t be coming, he just won`t be!) at 12/1.

Mat Kendrick at The Birmingham Mail also says those are the front runners, as well as a possible 'mystery 3rd` (Come on Andre Villas Boas, I`ve got him at 50 to 1 LOL)

He also states Villa hope to have the manager done by this Friday or early next week at the latest.

They had hoped last week but it has obviously proved more time consuming than they had expected. Maybe, for reasons we may never know, they`ve had to wait for certain targets!

Mat says: Martinez`s advisors met with the claret and blues late last week .........contrary to previous reports, Villa have also taken soundings about Norwich boss Lambert.

Looks like Rodgers set to b announced Scousecum manager - really wish they'd kept Kenny boy for another couple of weeks as BR seems a great manager.
