All depends on whether Malky wants to talk to them I think. If he does, then I can't see Watford hanging on to him, contract or not.

True, does make it harder though. Realistically Cardiff is potentially a better job than Watford, especially given the restrictions Watford are having to operate under.

Watford are probably holding out for a good compensation payment if anything.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

ENG U21's did everything but score and now must beat Czech Republic to get to the last 4. Pearce is not doing his CV anygood though, 88th minute to bring a 3rd sub on and he brings on a holding player when ENG were all over Ukraine

Machinene needs to be dropped as does Henderson, Lansbury looks so lively when he plays and any of other wingers are better than Danny Rose. The entire defence looks very very good though and Bertrand is a way better player than Gibbs plus far less injury prone. Walker is already better than Johnson though behind Micah Richards and Jones/Smalling look like seasoned pros.

Pity Frankie Fielding plays for Derby

Leicester has supposedly signed Nugent on a free, though I can't find official confirmation of this. Hopefully this means Sven will let us have Waghorn...

Bud never sponsered the PL itself though I think they do the FA Premier League fantasy football

Ah, given the involvement of other firms, I don't see that Budweiser is any worse than, say Carling?

Wish Disney would sponsor the League Cup - then it would finally be outed as the micky mouse competition that we all know it is!

Aston Villa seem determined to both struggle and alienate fans by appointing Alex McLeish as their manager. Strange appointment.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well it is and it isn't. He is a good manager, and frankly I think the Villa fans are partly to blame. They kicked up such a stink when Lerner even thought of interviewing McClaren that he decided against it. This didn't leave many other options given that Martinez turned them down, aside from Hughes who Lerner seems to have already discounted. Fan power was never going to work more than once, and the Villa fans shot their wad at the wrong time. Reminds me of the time Sunderland fans treated PEter Reid abomninably and then cheered when they got him out...and then a well past his sell by date Howard Wilkinson turned up...

I think both Lerner and O'Neill need to look at themselves and ask why they didn't make it work, because the debacle of last summer did neither Lerner, MON or Villa any favours.

I hate to say it but Forest's gain is Villa's loss...
