As reported on this blog Ole is not saying NO to Villa so whilst out I missed a twitter storm.
For some reason SSN saw Ole’s press conference and totally misread this. Of course when they put a put out a yellow bar ticker saying –
“Ole rejects Villa“
This then gets the rest of the press pack following without the need to check their facts. What then happens is an agency gets the news, does not check, puts it out and the rest follow. This fooled Tom Ross and Collymore but never fooled Mat Kendrick and tim Abraham who of course followed @andymeide tweets and saw the truth of the comments as I blogged.
Now we have the Norway press laughing at the British press and rightly so. So when former Swindon forward Jan aage Fjortoft tweets
@JanAageFjortoft: My feeling: If Aston Villa offer Solskjær the job, Solskjær is Villa- manager 1st of June. #avfc #talksport”
Then this is the truth and so far in front of our own media who have not checked up.
The situation is clear enough IMHO. Ole is loyal man but an ambitious one. He wants to manage in the PL and this is a great opportunity but he wants Molde to be treated rightly. We WILL offer him the job and the financials will be sorted out.
However one side effect of this is that the bookies like sheep followed Sky. they lowered the odds, as low as 7-1 and of course those Villa fans following this piled in. I was out so could not
Nice to see the bookies lose a lot !
also @andymeide has said this
Dagbladet thinks OGS seems irritated by the fact that Molde questions his loyalty and professionalism #avfc
