Big Sam sensationally got the Spanish Archer (El Bow) this afternoon.
He’s said he’s shocked and disappointed. Not as shocked and disappointed as Blackburn fans might be with his replacement.
Difficult to see ’em queuing around the block for the position of Coach at Ewood Park. The Venky takeover was heralded as something quite exciting but under closer inspection it was as glamourous as a ‘Under New Management’ sign over a Take Away door.
Aston Villa’s last man Martin O’Neill is going to priced up on every managerial job going so no surprise he’s top of the pile at 4/1. Martin Jol ex Tottenham Supremo is also 4/1 and his old Spurs brother in arms Chris Hughton is 11/1.
What follows is a roller-dex of virtually every manager you’ve ever heard of. My crazy outside bet is former Boro manager Gareth Southgate at a whopping 28/1.
Gareth has been out of work and would love to slip back into the game again. Perhaps a lunatic Chicken magnate in the lurch could be just the ticket.
