Sven in a League of his own
Notts County of Coca-Cola League 2 today announced that negotiations are happening with the view of bringing Sven Goran Eriksson into the club in the role of Director of Football.
No, before you go searching through your calendars, it isn't April Fools' Day, it's genuine. The former Lazio and England manager has reportedly been offered a lifeline after recently being chopped as Mexico's supremo.
It is all the brainchild of County's new, ambitious owners Munto Finance who are making giant strides towards bringing Championship football to Meadow Lane within five years.
It sounds crazy, but for long suffering County fans the news comes as a great boost to their promotion chances this year - something we at Hills have had to take into consideration.
As such we've slashed County's League 2 outright odds from 14/1 down to 7/1 while their chances of promotion have shortened to 15/8, in from 5/2.
You can't fault their ambition, the question is, will it be well placed? I guess time will only tell.
