Latest from the Walkers Stadium
Managerless Leicester are still continuing their search for a man to take over the reins at the Walkers Stadium from Ian Holloway after his unsuccessful spell that saw Leicester relegated.
It has been well over two weeks since Ian Holloway left Leicester by mutual consent and Milan Mandaric is still searching for what will be his 7th manager within 2 years.
Many names have been thrown around, Leicester had approached MK Dons over the possibility of ex-England international Paul Ince taking over at the Walkers but being turned down aswell as an approach for ex-Leicester skipper Simon 'Larry' Grayson, currently at Blackpool being turned down.
Milan Mandaric had said to Sky Sports News that there had been 20 applicants, for which he would make a shortlist of 4 or 5.
But more recently Mandaric, yet again speaking to Sky Sports News said that his shortlist is down to 2, well-established English manager. Names that have been flying around include John Gregory, Ex-England manager Steve Mclaren and Sam Allardyce. Billy Davies and Simon Grayson are still being mentioned but Gregory who was assistant under Brian Little at Leicester during the 90's is being backed heavily.
6-4 Billy Davies,
5-2 Simon Grayson,
3-1 John Gregory,
5-1 Paul Lambert, Paul Ince,
7-1 Steve Cotterill,
8-1 Gerry Taggart, Darren Ferguson,
12-1 Kevin Bond.
Mandaric also stated that he wants to appoint a new manager by the middle of June so expect a manager within the next few days.
Also, in and out the continual revolving doors at the Walkers stadium include a change in Chief Executive. Paul Aldridge has stepped aside for Lee Hoos. Hoos has a good track record and has previously spent 8 years at Fulham and 3 at Southampton.
On the player front, 'rumours' include that Leicester have made a cheeky bid for Birmingham forward Cameron Jerome according to News of The World aswell as for experienced Derby centre-half Darren Moore according to a Derbyshire newspaper. How any of these 'rumours' can be possible is beyond me as we currently have no manager to sign them.
