Next City Manager?

Selected odds on the next Manchester City manager from a number of bookmakers.

Claudio Ranieri evens

Guus Hiddink 6/1

Paul Jewell 6/1

Billy Davies 8/1

Sven Goran Eriksson 12/1

Gerard Houllier 12/1

David O Leary 14/1

Chris Coleman 16/1

Graeme Souness 16/1

Paul Simpson 16/1

Sam Allardyce 16/1

Bryan Robson 20/1

Adrian Boothroyd 25/1

Glenn Hoddle 25/1

Iain Dowie 25/1

Mark Hughes 25/1

Peter Reid 25/1

Paul Ince 33/1

Strangely enough the BBC are reporting that it is a straight fight between Ronald Koemann and Louis Van Gaal, neither of which I can find odds for tonight.

My personal opinion, which stems from a number of rumours and people who know people, is that Ranieri is rightfully hot favourite.

The new owners to be want a name and Ranieri is the biggest of those available.

Is he the right man? Well he was the one who got the Chelsea bandwagon on the roll and he also worked wonders with Corradi.

Time will tell I suppose, but I do believe the next gaffer will be a foreigner.

The next man must MUST be a foreigner there is no one in this country available who has a high enough profile to take the Club to the next level.

Yous do not want O Leary,believe me.

we certainly don't want O'Leary ...... it's about time we tried a foreign coach, it's about the only thing we haven't tried in the last 30 years.
