“My first task is to implement a new identity that the fans can enjoy and one where they can see the players are there for each other and give everything to win games. We have a clear plan and vision of where we want to go." #wba

CEO Ken: "I am confident by working together we will be able to achieve our goal of returning to PL but our plans must look further into the future. For too long we have focused only on what is immediately in front of us. This means we have often neglected long-term aspirations."

Ken ctd: Player recruitment will be of the utmost importance. Valérien & I will immediately focus on preparing the squad for the new season, working together with Ian Pearce, our Head of Recruitment, to secure transfer targets who will strengthen us for the challenges ahead."#wba

Do I sense an air of unity  8)
If so, and if it comes off, who gets the credit? Surely, Ken?

Me, as I asked Liam to include Valérien Ismaël in the poll in the first place and Ken obviously is a member of this forum. Both owe me finders fees  :D ;D 8) :o

The Premier Leagues use of VAR has made me doubt it. Watching this tournament makes me realise we’ve overcomplicated  it , mis-used it and thought we knew better than tournaments and countries that had used it before us . Used correctly It can work and not intrude on the game!

How right is he

Or maybe Richard Sneekes might fancy it, he's Assistant Manager at Redditch Utd. I'm sure that, after a week of hard negotations, a compensation deal could be agreed.  ;)

Hang on WorcsWBA, I'm only 5 minutes from the V Trico Stadium, I'll pop down and see if he's interested  :D

My thoughts, after today’s developments, are that we will be looking for a more experienced and knowledgeable manager, how has contacts throughout football and has a track record of being successful.

I was being frivolous when I first mentioned Rafa in this thread, but it’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that he is a target as, no doubt, Lai will have had conversations with the owners of Dalian Professional F.C. regarding Rafa tenure there.

I think Dowling’s departure is a game changer for the club and the structure. Strangely, given the low ebb we are at,  I feel more optimistic about our short term future.

Fully expect Lai to go running back to Jenkins.

Lets hops so as we have no one, who knows the club, to turn to and lets hope JRP is also approached

Huge news coming out of Albion as Luke Dowling leaves by mutual consent. You could argue his role had become untenable with it understood the former technical director wanted Chris Wilder as boss. Chief Executive Xu Ke will later release a statement on the manager search #wba

#wba technical & sporting director Luke Dowling leaves the club by mutual consent. Dowling was leading the search for a new manager, with the club’s owner vetoing appointment of Chris Wilder. #Lincoln manager Michael Appleton no longer an option and remains committed to the club
