Not disagreeing, just asking: is that a personal, "taste" thing? If Evans was a nice bloke with the same record, would you feel the same?

Presumably meaning being sacked from your last job doesn't necessarily make you a bad manager. I wonder who 'one of the staff' is? Deano probably!

Reid? Jiminho? I imagine Chris Powell might tweak Jimmy's leftback-jealousy.... :D

Super John is gravely concerned. Not just on here then.

Oh and Owen Coyle is looking for work. Anyone?

That's all of our last 4 managers currently seeking employment. The graveyard of managerial dreams.

Football's a business. Whilst Anderson's money is elsewhere it's probably earning interest for him. Once he transfers it over it will be a case of who gets it first. I see that as the main business reason for not handing it over till somebody cuts the briefcase off his wrist.

Who's dropping bread crumbs for Evans? :wink:

I agree with this. I would have a longer line of bread crumbs though.

Interviewed by Ken alone it sounds. Perhaps he's stuck his cash in to get the casting vote?

Don't fancy Powell. Other two would do.

:D ha!

Anderson hasn't put his money in - boooooooooooooo!

Where am I booing? So long as they're getting on with it, no problem. They are at least interviewing managers with relative experience.

Mainly, can't stand the cnut. If his record was miles better than everyone else's I'd be prepared to suck it up, but I don't think it's toooo bad a field. Purely on record I'd probably have Evans second sneaking above Powell and Coterill but comfortably behind Nigel Weirdo Adkins, for whom my colours are now firmly nailed to the mast.

Surely none of this can be true - how can we have interviewed the likes of Adkins, Powell, Cotterill when Anderson isn't to be trusted, he and DH have fallen out, they never communicate, KA's not put his money in yet, we couldn't even afford to keep Maher & Thelkeld, reality is biting, the players haven't been paid for July yet !! no manager would be interested whilst we are in a transfer embargo, no sign of us ever getting the embargo lifted, we can't even afford Hill & Sheridan.....

BTW I thought according to Iles the 4 man shortlist was Reid, Adkins, Redfearn & Steve Thompson ?, and that it must be true because Iles gets his information directly from DH

Yeah, reasonable enough. I might be coming round to Cotterill a bit - that title-winning Bristol City side (2015) got 99 points and 96 goals, and you have to take your hat off to what he did at Notts County five years before: took over in Feb with them in 7th, romped to the Fourth Division title; under him they played 18 games, W14 D3 L1, F40 A6. That doesn't sound like dull functional football (maybe that comes later in the higher leagues?) - and most intriguingly, at County he was effectively doing it with someone else's players, which is the sign of someone who can coach as well as purchase, something which will be important to us.

Cotterill might still make me nervous but I think I might be persuading myself he's up there with Adkins. Evans I don't hate as much as most. Powell seems a nice bloke but might be lacking the clout of others. And Iles says Ken hints mysteriously at a couple of others... not that we believe everything we read in the papers as it's all bollocks.

Firstly you can't put any store in this more positive story given the source surely? But as Iles says he is still getting mixed messages from the two owners. But seemingly things are at least moving.

IF they're getting on with it, then however that is happening then great. The proof will be when things that need to happen actually do.

Right now there are plenty of genuinely concerned people around the club. But the news today was more positive so lets hope, whatever is/was going on that things get sorted. As I said there is still time to salvage this but as McGinlay points out we're probably already missing out on the best free transfers in terms of the market.

That BN article....quotes Chris Powell as being one of the front runners....then quotes Anderson saying that all the contenders as having promotions under their belt....well as far as I can tell, Powell hasn't?
