The Tuesday Ten: Top 10 Candidates for the Aston Villa Manager Role

Today we begin a great new feature on the Free Beer Movement site. In collaboration with the quality soccer site, "The Other 87 Minutes" we present the "Tuesday Ten" (and sometimes the "Tuesday XI") a thoughtful list on a variety of topics in the world of soccer.

What is this new site we're exposing you too? We'll let them explain:
The Other 87 seeks to provide something that’s not instant analysis or eve of matchday previews. Think of us as the good bits of your favorite soccer coverage: the profiles that examine what makes a certain player tick, the historical background that sheds some light on how the sport has evolved to the present day, the silly features that are more than just tacking names on a list, but considering and explaining why each one deserves to be there.
O87 wants to be a home for soccer writing that makes you think, but that also treats the game as just that, a game. The greatest game, the one we obsess over and fixate on, to the point where we can’t read that gas costs 3.43 a gallon without thinking of Ajax’s 1995 Champions League winning team. But a game nonetheless.
“When you play a match, it is statistically proven that players actually have the ball three minutes on average. The best players – the Zidanes, Ronaldinhos, Gerrards – will have the ball maybe four minutes. Lesser players – defenders – probably two minutes. So, the most important thing is: what do you do those 87 minutes when you do not have the ball…. That is what determines whether you’re a good player or not.” –Johann Cruyff
So when you're done here and you're done checking out episode three of "Studio: Stoppage Time" go and check out their great site.

We present.... the "Tuesday Ten". Let us know what you think in the comments section.

Top 10 candidates for the Aston Villa manager role:

Passion for the job.
Avram Grant – Don’t laugh, he may be the best guy left.

Paul Scholes – It’s not like they’re going to have to beat Barcelona any time soon.

Diego Maradona – It’s not like they’re going to have to beat Germany any time soon.

Sven Goran Eriksson – Likely too busy with Special One TV.

Prince William – Bring in the Top Man.

Bob Bradley – Should have left while your stock was high, Skeletor.

Tom Hanks – Since Brian Clough’s dead, you know. LINK

Mike Holmgren – Anything would be better than the Browns.

Andy Gray – He’s still unemployed, right? No? Never mind then.

Carlo Ancelotti – Dream on.
