Hardly a surprise given the press wibblings that he wanted the job and would walk to us the other week…
Moyes comes in as 4-6 favourite at this moment in time following the earlier sacking of Tim Sherwood.
Apparently he’s had a poor start to life in Spain with Real Sociedad and having claimed on Saturday that his job was safe, it’s being suggested they will let him go without compensation being needed.
Failure at Manchester United, now failure in Spain – Villa don’t break runs that are in our best interests do we?
Former Leicester City throttler Nigel Pearson is in at 3-1, and well our manager’s don’t work well with the press usually it seems given the storms in a teacup we get when we don’t want something reported.
Would we really go for a man who created Ostrich-gate? Amongst many other amusing episodes over at the King Power Stadium last season?
Can’t argue with Leicester’s turn around though can you.
Former Liverpool gaffer Brendan Rodgers is 5-1, but depending on which media you believe he’s either ruled himself out of a job preferring to take some time to himself of late, or he’s probably already been given the job which would upset David Moyes.
What would a managerial search be without the names Bob and Bradley.
Yup the serially linked American is back at 6-1, and despite some describing him as a ‘surprise name’ on the bookies list – has he ever left it?
Burnley’s Sean Dyche features at 16-1 but can’t see that happening.
Former Brentford and now Rangers manager Mark Warburton is also 16-1 but with him having one ten out of ten up at Ibrox, he’s never going to head back South at the minute is he.
The Roy of the Keane is 20-1 and just God no.
Burton gaffer Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is an outside 33-1, but he’s taking the managerial route sensibly having brought Burton from League Two into League One and I can’t see him making that jump just yet – especially not the position we are in.
Alan Curbishley takes the Bob Bradley’s and is again mentioned at 20-1 and probably even he doesn’t know why.
Frank de Boer, Michael Laundrup and Harry Redknapp feature at 33-1 and even Ron Atkinson features at 50-1.
On the basis of that list, you can probably find me somewhere in the 75-1 mark.
