Simon Grayson 14/1 For Leicester City Job TSS October 24, 2011 Leeds United 34 Comments Now that formerly respected manager and full time Swedish sex pest, Sven Goren Eriksson has parted ways with Leicester City, the bookies are offering odds on his replacement, and as ever, Simon Grayson makes the list. Unlike previous links to new management posts however, I think this one could actually tempt Simon Grayson. Not only can Leicester City offer him the kind of finances needed to buy success but he also played for them, making 229 appearances in his six seasons at Filbert Street. With the recent “revelations” (it was hardly the best kept secret) regarding his personal life, Simon Grayson may be tempted by a fresh start elsewhere considering his bit on the side works at Elland Road. The increased salary Leicester City could provide would also help pay for the divorce lawyers! (Sorry, it’s hard to resist) Of course, there’s also a good chance Simon Grayson won’t be offered the position considering the money Leicester have available and the fact Martin O’Neill has been made bookies favourite (isn’t he the favourite for every manager’s job?). There are however two things I’m absolutely certain of. The first is that Sven will re-emerge again very shortly at a new club whose female staff he can systematically seduce, and the second is that Simon Grayson will be linked to this position while ever it remains vacant. The chances of him actually leaving Elland Road? No idea, but if Simon Grayson was to leave Leeds United for any club, Leicester City is where I’d be putting my money. *Odds on Simon Grayson vary from 12/1-16/1, with Ladbrokes a notable exception offering odds of just 8/1 at time of publication.
