Tinkerman bookies favourite to land Man City job...

Apparently there's been a flurry of betting on Claudio Ranieri to takeover from sacked Stuart Pearce. The Italian manager says he loves English football and it sounds like he would relish the challenge at Manchester City, but at the moment he's still employed with Parma and they have two remaining games to play. Ranieri also claims no contact has been made, but he would say that wouldn't he?

The not always on the ball Manchester Evenings News is claiming that the former Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra could be about to launch his bid to takeover the club - a move which the paper is now describing as 'certain' and added to which Shinawatra and his advisors are overseeing the next managerial appointment...you can sort of understand that, given it is they who will be the new owners. I'd imagine any deal with Ranieri will be agreed subject to the takeover being completed.

I personally have major doubts about Ranieri, during his time at Stamford Bridge he was known to change tactics three times in one half...My prediction is that if indeed the Italian does prove to be the next man in, then Ranieri wont be a City manager for long and the club will eventually bring in another British manager.
