Predicting a club’s next manager is a tricky job. Take QPR. Tim Sherwood was instantly installed as odds-on favourite on the basis that his mates worked there, only for one of those mates to actually be given the job.

So we thought we’d apply a slightly more scientific analysis in order to predict Aston Villa’s next boss. We’ve searched for all of the main contenders on Google alongside the keyword ‘Aston Villa’, to compare the amount of internet heat they’re letting off. Here’s how they rank.

6. Sean Dyche

The Burnley manager is a shock contender for the Villa job but he might well think he's got more chance of keeping his own boys in claret and blue up.


5. Jurgen Klinsmann

The American link has seen USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann associated to a return to the Premier League in Birmingham.

4. Glenn Hoddle

Hoddle is linked with every job going these days, normally trades amongst the favourites for a while and then doesn't get it.

3. Michael Laudrup

The Dane is a hot contender for the Villa throne but he won't come cheap - which is unfortunately Randy Lerner's middle name.

2. Neil Lennon

Just edging out Laudrup is the former Celtic and current Bolton boss Neil Lennon, who'd love a crack at the Premier League.

1. Tim Sherwood

The runaway leader is Tim Sherwood but will anyone take a gamble on him after his successful yet controversial spell at Spurs?
