O’Neill Back in the Frame?

Martin O’Neill’s odds have dramatically shortened as City’s search for a new manager goes on…

O’Neill’s name came up in a quote from City chairman Vichai Raksriaksorn in the Bangkok Post and rumours are circulating that the 59 year old would be happy to take the Leicester job as long as he could leave if offered a Premier League post, something our owners were not happy to agree to.
Yesterday Huddersfield boss Lee Clark ruled himself out of the reckoning, whereas Hull’s Nigel Pearson responded with a typically blunt: “I just find it a bit irritating if I’m honest, you know what I’m like. So I suggest we close it there.”

Meanwhile Martin O’Neill has said to Radio Leicester that he: “Did not want to talk about the Leicester job, on or off the record”.
Which, if we’re clutching at straws, isn’t a ‘no’ is it?

    It does sound like straw-clutching, but we live in hopes.

    It frankly beggars belief that Eriksson was fired without having any idea who would replace him. Sentences involving the words piss-up, brewery and organise come to mind. Yet again.
