Moyes Odds Slashed for Next Permanent Manager of Aston Villa Job

Despite being on the receiving end of a 0-1 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa on Sunday, David Moyes, manager of Everton has moved rapidly into joint favouritism to take over as the new Villa boss from the recently resigned, Martin O’Neill.. Skybet make him 7/4 to take over while Ladbrokes have him at 2/1 alongside Sven Goran Eriksson.

It would amount to a remarkable turn of events if Moyes indeed made the move to the midlands, he certainly fits the profile sought for next boss by chairman, Randy Lerner and he most definitely has the credentials after 8 very successful years at Goodison Park.

Temporary caretaker boss, Kevin MacDonald would understandably be a little aggrieved of missing out, particularly as his side got the better of Everton at the weekend in their Premier League fixture, a result which put Villa into the top four, with two wins in three games. Their one blemish came of course in the bizarre 0-6 reverse against Newcastle the week before. MacDonald has also overseen Villa’s departure from European football this season, after they were beaten on aggregate by Rapid Vienna in the Europa League.

Lerner has stated quite openly that the man he needs to take over from O’Neill, would be one with Premier League management experience, which effectively rules out MacDonald as well as one time favourite, Bob Bradley, the coach for the Unites States national team. The list of potential candidates therefore is becoming ever shorter, but if Moyes was to open up talks with Villa, he would find his current employers extremely loathe to let him go.

It is a well known fact that Moyes has managed the Everton club on a ‘shoestring’ for years now, but has always managed to have them finish in the top six or seven of the Premier League, a record that some have suggested would put him in line for the Manchester United job, should Sir Alex Ferguson ever stand down. He is also somewhat miffed with the Everton board for the lack of investment in players; Moyes believes he needs to keep his team in a challenging position. As it stands currently neither Everton nor Villa seem capable of challenging for the top spot in the Premier League but both are realistic candidates to finish in the top four. Indeed ladbrokes go 12/1 on both teams to finish in the top four, but those odds for one side will lengthen once Moyes has finally decided where his future lies.
