Aston Villa And The Managerial Merry-Go-Round


According to Five Live, Aston Villa have contacted Fulham to let them know they're not after manager Mark Hughes. Hurray! It is my goal in life to make rumors die away by writing about them, and who knows, perhaps this time I have accomplished said goal. So which rumors are left to kill?

Aaron wrote a post about potential managerial candidates and how he would feel if each were appointed. We've eliminated Hughes, and with Sam Allardyce going to West Ham, we're down to six. The betting lines are all about Carlo Ancelotti, and if you're so inclined, you can participate in a fun Twitter game about where the former Chelsea manager has been spotted in Birmingham.

Personally, I'm inclined to agree with Aaron -- while I'd certainly like Ancelotti more than Hughes, he really offers little in the way of excitement. Chelsea fielded a ridiculously low number of players in the league this season, and in their last match, a meaningless game against Everton, Ancelotti rolled out the entire first team. Josh McEachran didn't get a start. Milan Lalkovic, superb in reserve action and obviously one of my favorites, didn't even make the bench. Carlo rarely used his subs. He played the same formation again and again. Sure, he's talented enough, but not to the point where he satisfies my creative needs.

Roberto! Roberto! Roberto!
