Claude Puel Jumps To Favourite
Monday, 20th Jun 2016 22:21
The bookies seem to have taken a few bob over the last few days as one candidate after another jumps to the top of the list, tonight it's Claude Puel.
Earlier today Manuel Pellegrini looked the odds on favourite , but suddenly Claude Puel has jumped over him, the Frenchman is starting to look a decent option after the last couple of days have seen Walter Zenga and Carvos Carvahal mooted for the job, not appointments that have exited the Saints fan base.
Skybet has Puel at 2/1 although other bookies have him as high as 5/1, Pellegrini is slightly longer at 11/2 with Skybet and it is starting to look like a straight race between the two unless there is a late surprise in store.
Puel has everything on his CV that Saints would require with the only thing against him being that he has never played or managed outside of France.
However Saints will feel that with the experience of Sammy Lee alongside him he will, like Ronald Koeman have a good man to help him adapt to the Premier League.

Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Gills 5/11/94 by wessex_exile
Interesting that on the eve of our Mickey Mouse game against Ipswich, the match selected is from 1994, when we were managed by George Burley. We know a song about him…
Matches of Yesteryear - Mansfield v U's 18/8/18 by wessex_exile
Another busy week, so apologies this has had to wait until today. Once again the random match selector throws a curve ball – with the cheers from our imperious victory at Field Mill last Saturday still fresh in the memory, we return to Field Mill (aka The One-Call Stadium) for this one.
Matches of Yesteryear - Tranmere v U's 12/1/02 by wessex_exile
Well, after a tremendously exciting week for U’s fans everywhere, what better way to calm things down than remembering the daily grind of league football.
Matches of Yesteryear - U's v Doncaster 8/1/93 by wessex_exile
With school half-term upon me, and with much to do before leaving early for Crawley on Tuesday night, I’m going to have to post this one a bit early I’m afraid.
Matches of Yesteryear - Bees v U's 31/12/05 by wessex_exile
Well here’s a first, the random match selector has chosen the very next match I was at following Shrewsbury in the FA Cup back in December 2005 – spooky.
