Silva or O'Neil but don't touch the other 2 with a barge pole

O'Neill doesn't do anything for me at all. He sounds like an old woman.

I'm already resigned to the fact we'll get some obscure Austrian 3rd tier Assistant Manager because he talks about playing football the 'right way' or something.

All very good, but he's been managing longer than I've been alive and the last 5yrs at international level with a pub side....I'll be amazed if they go for him.

Maybe it's time to think out of the box. Sean Dyche, Eddie Howe and Chris Hughton have all done good jobs with limited budgets keeping Championship-level teams in the Premier League. And Neil Warnock's not doing a bad job at Cardiff City, and outside of British managers, Santo's Wolves team have won 61.9% of their 42 games since he took over, losing only 7 games.

Maybe it's time to see what one of those managers could do at Saints. Could they do any worse?

I don't disagree at all, just listed the favourites from oddschecker.

Apparently Silva's said no and will be getting the Everton job in the summer when the fat ginger wanker gets the sack.

Hughton has always impressed me.
Dyche too.
Howe is almost too obvious isn't it?
Warnock can be ignored I think, too old fashioned, too much Mrs Doubtfire about his attitude and appearance.
Fulham manager was mentioned too.

Dunno

Sparky doesn't excite me much

Anyway nice 3 points for Spurs, my prediction nearly spot on. One of the best games I have seen all season, great to see 2 teams going for it and attacking from the get go.
10 min's into the 2nd half the ground was nearly full , friend off mine was at the game & there was a problem with the trains.

Where the fck have you been? The fat ginger wanker got the sack months ago, it's the fat gravy swilling tosser who's getting the sack in the summer.

If we do get Silva, then I'm not surprised as we were prepared to say something like 20M to get him out of Watford before he got the boot as it messed with his head apparently.

And that's the problem with Silva, a good manager, but you have to wonder about someone who is prepared to leave a club ten games in when a better offer comes along.

Everton fans are urging Southampton to take Sam Allardyce

Surely Pardew should be odds on for Southampton, didn't he jump the sinking ship from Newcastle for Palace? Ol' 'Arry is 5/1 for WBA, I think I'd rather have Paul Ince back in management than him.
