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.   

He's got plenty to go at at the minute, Norwich, Swansea, possibly Wigan, maybe Villa if Lambert ducks out

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?!!!!!


An extremely reliable source told me AVB was interviewed by us 2-3 weeks ago. It does kind of make sense
June 1st and all that.
I went out and put 50 smackers on it at the time :P

Phelen although I rate highly would be disasterous in my view especially due to the negative feelings after his playing spell here.

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.

He's not very good as an assistant either.

Just out of interest what is it that makes you rate him so highly?  The only exposure he gets is the occassional post match interview in which I think he usually sounds dour, uninspiring and to be honest thick

My jaw dropped when I saw Mike Phelan. If he was to be appointed it would be a massive disappointment in my opinion. To go from the likes of Ranieri and Rangnick and then appoint Mike Phelan would be rather underwhelming. I'd much rather us go and appoint Chris Hughton rather than Phelan.

FWIW, put a quid on AVB. Do it quickly, and you can get 60s.

If AVB wants to come back to England and prove his name, then we would be the obvious choice, the steady job. Liverpool now having Rodgers, Villa looking like Lambert, out of the jobs available - Swansea, Norwich and Us i would say we are the most appealing prospect. Also you cant really see any more manager go rounds unless Redknapp went to Chelsea but cant see it.

If AVB wants to go europe then he will probably have pick of some huge clubs but if he wants England we may be the ones!

Apparently his coaching methods are similar to Roys, strong matchlike drills etc.

Hes been SAF's assistant since 2008 so much have something especially as SAF decided to promote him rather than bring someone in when Queiroz left.

Your observation of being dour is one downside however.
