There are only two serious candidates according to the latest offs - RR, who is favourite, and CH. The rest are 'also rans'.

Was said on Another page that the AVB deal is off and the presser isn't happening.

The AVB deal was never on. Whoever's telling you that was having you on, as they also were with the press conference. Who organises a press conference without telling the press, and who does that without having an appointment imminent? Someones having fun at various members expense (literally judging by the amount of people throwing money away betting on AVB yesterday).


As it is i'd be very disappointed if we didn't get Rangnick now, his pedigree blows the other likely candidates out the water. I'd be bemused if it took us over a month to end up with Hughton or Appleton. Even then there's a significant chance Norwich will use their compensation from Lambert to get Hughton.

This just shows how stupid next manager markets are, apparently Ranieri is 484/1 to get the Albion job  ;D

Na, everyone will go once we have a name confirmed. Well until someone spots Carew on the Hawthorns carpark.

I think it's safe to say we won't hear anything about the new man until 6th June at the earliest.  :o

Thing is if we get to many posts just talking about the number of posts in the topic and not actually discussing the topic then it will be significantly lower #deletebutton

Just wish they'd issue a statement if they don't intend announcing anything until next Wednesday. At least we'd know something!

But that would imply we've made a decision.

I think the reason we are waiting is because the club are waiting for answers from potential interested parties.

As someone as said, this Ralf guy has got to pick up his entire life and move, that's not easy for anyone regardless of the money aspect.

My personal feeling is that Ralf will turn us down and we will eventually be forced to speak to Blues. I just hope it's not too late before he's got a choice between us and Norwich/Swansea.

I'd like to imagine that the current main two targets are Ralf Rangnick and Chris Hughton... if that is the case, I'd then expect that we would have agreed something already with Ralf, and then currently be negotiating any potential fees with Chris Hughton.

Only because, I fear Birmingham will be trying to guess our target list and will definately want Hughton if Ralf falls through. In which case, they can then start charging us more. Instead, if Ralf turns us down or something doesn't work out, we could then quickly switch the Birmingham and Hughton without them raising the price.

i think he'd choose us over swansea and norwich (even though i dont want him to!)

any body think its worth waiting until after the euro's to see if theres any national coaches available, i know its cutting it a bit fine for the new season but i cant think of anybody out there good enough for us
if i were wrong, dont you think id know it!

Leave sorting out all the contracts to Dan. What manager might be available then if his team fails in the Euros, dont say Hodgson

I'm begining to think that JP & DA have been captured by pirates in the Indian Ocean.
If it was easy, it wouldn't be Albion
