Sticking to the facts we are still in talks with Rangnick who I guess is our first choice. If that falls through we will have a plan B. Our plan B is not AVB he would be plan A. If Rangnick falls through then it is much more likely to be Appy than AVB.
At last, some realism. Of course, AVB would be first choice. He is one of the top coaches in Europe. Didnt work out for him at Chelsea, but he is outside our league by a country mile

Stop spoiling the fun ;D

It's better to dream about who we could bring in rather than poo your pants about who we might end up with :P

Blimey, who had a poo on your pancake this morning?!  ;D

IIRC, this used to be a messageboard, where fans could post opinions, and could also post about news they had heard, which would then be discussed with other fans.

I haven't been around for a long time, due to the quite evident loss of it's once great sense of humour, but I presumed that was still the premise of this place? Feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

People post continuous ***** it gets removed, you know that. If that means the 'humour' goes so be it.

So, can we leave the bitching about how this board is run and stick to the topic then please.

People are free to come and go from this board as and when they like. If people want a board full of ***** then I suggest they chose another. Yes we are strict and thats what seperates us from others, banter, jokes are fine but when that one/two posts turn into half or a full page of 'witty' stuff its deflects from the topic and ruins a thread hence why posts get removed. We don't remove anything because we don't like the poster or we don't like the post, we do it to keep the board tidy and smooth running.

It seems as though we are down to four; Rangnick, Appleton and Phelan who have been mentioned by the local media, and AVB who hasn't been mentioned by the media at all but the rumour mill keeps on turning.

I think the next day and a half are going to be crucial. I just hope it's Rangnick or the surprise of AVB, because Appleton or Phelan would be an absolute disaster.
No no, no no no no, no no no no, no no shots on target.......

yes, but it seems to be one extreme or the other. Some people are piling their money on AVB (the dream), whilst others are fearing we will end up with Appleton and get relegated (pooing their pants). The point I was making is that we will inevitably end up with a good coach who will keep us up (realism)
Far be it from me to stop people dreaming. I like a dream myself but if its to be AVB I will have died and gone to heaven.

I'm 99.99999999% sure it won't be appy, how ever much of a great guy he is, it's the wrong time of him to manage us.
Be interesting if anything gets said before this 2pm presser tomorrow, or if the club will spring a surprise.
Still positive it will be rangnick, but part of me now is thinking it could be AVB.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the shortening of AVB's odds is partly from here!

I think we'd be surprised at how much influence fans' message boards have.

On a similar note, if you're reading this JP/DA, get on with it! We're going mental over here!

So Tim if we end up with Ralf a sort of half way house could we class that as a wet dream!!? I just hope we have learnt the lesson that the PL really is no place for novices al Appleton. We need to take note of the debacle down the road when Moxeys infamous "not a job for a novice" quote turned into a job for Terry Conner.....and well we all know the rest. If that happened to us I would be mortified and ashamed all at the same time

Haven't seen anything anywhere that would convince me that this rumour about the 2pm press conference tomorrow is actually happening.

Really hoping for Rangnick or AVB, not only because they are the best candidates but I stand to win a fair bit of money if one of them gets the job! Appleton will be a disaster and Phelan a nightmare appointment. I'm still fairly confident it will be Ralf.
No no, no no no no, no no no no, no no shots on target.......

Didn't you also say this?

'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.'

I think it is from here, but from a few people putting some bets on after hearing a rumour about him. The same thing happened with Appleton, someone 'itk' said it would've been him, a few people here but a bet on him, and he quickly went from 25/1 to something like 10/1. Next manager betting is so volatile all it takes it a few bets to shorten someone's odds dramatically, probably because all the bookies are worried about people having inside information.

Brilliant. I think after all the years of having to be realistic we may have to start thinking bigger as fans. Top ten premier league, well run club, stadium expansion. Its a solid platform for any manager, peace protects our players being poached which would be a major plus for a prospective manager. I think we have the respect of the premier league now, established and never favourites for relegation.
