Avram Grant has revealed that none other than His Royal Highness Prince William has approached him with regard to taking over at Aston Villa.
Grant reportedly remains committed to his work with the Ghana national team, however the Duke of Cambridge’s attempts to aid the Villa cause got news.bwin.com wondering.
Just what would the future ruler of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth and under other famous Villa fans have to offer were they to succeed the much-maligned Paul Lambert?
The first in line to the throne currently works full time as a helicopter pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Having completed search and rescue training at RAF Anglesey and flown several missions at sea, Wills has all the skills necessary to locate Villa’s ability to play football and rescue the club from an otherwise certain fate.
It won’t surprise many punters to know that our Prime Minister is a massive Villan.
His ability to wrangle disparate forces within his party is sure to come in handy when trying make a coherent team from Lambert’s patchwork squad.
Punters may not like the way Cameron gets things done, but no one can deny that, in leading the Tories to their first election victory for 18 years back in 2010, he was got the job done.
It may have gone south since then, but the former Bullingdon Club member could be relied upon to oversee a short-term upturn in viability for his side.
If you’re looking for a three-man management team, few can match lifelong Villa fans Ozzy Ozbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler in terms of resourcefulness.
Osbourne’s survival instincts are unquestionable having cheated death on numerous occasions.
Iommi, meanwhile, should have little difficulty getting a tune out Villa’s supposedly useless players having busted out some of the finest riffs in rock history despite losing parts of two fingers in a factory accident as a teenager.
Bassist Butler, finally, is a paragon of the kind of self-discipline required when a side have hit rock bottom – a die-hard vegan who it is said never uses foul language.
Sadly it’s unlikely any of our proposed managers will be in place by the time Aston Villa attempt to justify 6/4 favouritism against Leicester in the FA Cup round…
