Why would Ashworth go on holiday while we are in the process of finding a new manager?

Well he is only human  there are very few opportunities during the year for him to take time off. I suspect that once the candidates have been identified contract negotiations will be in the hands of Mark Jenkins and Richard Garlick. It is perfectly possible for us to appoint a manager while Dan is on holiday.

I can see this going on a while longer. Perhaps next week after the bank holiday.

That's a fair point...! but who knows with Mr Peace, he always seem to surprise us.
Let's just hope he makes an appointment soon because probably like many others my work is suffering, and i'm going stir crazy trying to keep up with all the rumours..!  :P

It'll be all the more painful if we don't today or tomorrow because then we hit a 4 day weekend which'll mean more waiting!

The thing is though Ashworth is the one that will be directly working with the new manager more so than those two and Peace.
 
The only thing I can think of is that Ashworth has identified the man, met him and established that the two can work together and that the final negotiations will be concluded by those two you mention.
 
Although if those negotiations fail - then what?  Is there a list of 3 or 4 that Ashworth has found and 'ok'ed?

Relax, when there is a deal to be done people work holidays and use their e-mail and phones pool side.

Martinez issue with Liverpool was that he would not work with a Director of Football so that would pretty much kill his chances of working with us.

Dont think thats the same as DA at Albion whos the Sporting & Technical Director. Think Director of Football has overall control of football so he can influence team selection and tactics etc. DA looks after all things football EXCEPT team and tactics that is left to the coach thats his remit. DA liases on recruitment player development and all the other surrounding issues. So DA wouldnt stop Martinez joining Albion in my view.

Yeah, if that is plan B and C lets hope Rangnick  says yes.  But what I don't get is if Appleton or Phelan were anywhere near then we would have had to approach their respective clubs and surely this would have become public.

Will be AVB. But can't be announced til June 1st due to deal with Chelsea. From ITK source, but don't forget things could change any minute in this situation. Surprised to see Phelan linked. Didn't expect that.

Some people are just better as assistants: Wilkins, Peter Taylor, Brian Kidd, Peter Grant, Don Howe, list is endless, and of course Terry O'Connor lmao.

Well, if RDM doesn't get the Chelsea or Villa jobs then coming back here wouldn't be his worst option !   

I'm not sure that "going back" is the right thing to do - the factors which caused his sacking could easily repeat themselves.

Do you mean AVB or Phelan was definitely interviewed WBAinDevon?

I dont want to get too excited about AVB being manager as just cant see it but part of me cant help think, what if it was?!!!!!
