Chris Hughton

which makes it more negligent if Hughton was our number one target we’ve let it drag on so long

If that is so, then it proves that our Board is incompetent in not knowing what Hughton was going to ask for.

It was not a time to play eeny meeny miny mo with someone of Hughton's quality. You have to pay what he wants for what we know he can do (that assumes that we really do want Premiership football?)

If they are frightened of that they should have stuck with LJ. To sack him when they did was a declaration that they are going to get/already have someone BETTER lined up (otherwise why sack him??)

If they didn't have Hughton or someone of his quality already lined up with terms understood then our "Board" is arrogant as well as incompetent.

To sign LJs sidekick would be a total admission of failure

Why are us sad bastards so cursed following this football Club?

Well that's good because Alex Neil look way too much like Dominic Cummings for my liking...

You may have hit upon something Mozo. In today’s football world, image is all important so instead of focusing on a managers record City should compile a shortlist based on managers’ looks. Only young handsome ones need apply

Hughton odds just cut DRAMATICALLY

All candidates’ odds drastically shorten and drastically lengthen at regular intervals. That’s why bookies always make money

Funny you should mention Nigel Adkins .... 😳😄🕺🏻🍷 

(when it comes down to it we are all equally ‘in the know’ really - Kid In The Riot getting pissy about a username similar to his adds to the hilarity! Especially as he told us to expect ‘news today or tomorrow’ bloody ages ago but nothing, absolutely nothing materialised! 😄 He hasn’t got a clue either!)

Brilliant! Don’t worry, you’ve only upset the ITK merchant who clearly isn’t - high comedy! Top notch! ✌️🍷😳😄

Not sure what's ruffled your feathers of late, champ. But perhaps time for a day off eh :thumbsup:

Well Cook and Neil are out of the running then. Poor Phil Neville isn't getting a sniff, and that bloke from Paderborn is going to need plastic surgery just to get an interview. 

I've sent an application in for Alessandro del Piero...

Wasted my bet on this man then!

I wonder what confesso means

I dunno but it looks like they're calling Alec Baldwin a film bastard! Shocking stuff.

 

 

 

(By the way, I'm pretty sure basta means stop in Italian, so check me out...)

As John McCricik would have said........this is a massively flip flopping market. Holden 12/1 to 2/5 to 9/2  and Hughton 5/4 to 10/1 to 5/2 and Cook all over the place, but currently 8/11.  You Couldna make it up!     Holdens quick drop in price would indicate that someone in the know thought they were ahead of the game.........but Holy Moly, they weren't.  Ha!!   Probably in a small betting market, it would not take much money to change the odds.  In Holdens case, about  tuppence three farthing,....,sorry Dean, nothing personal.

The only ones making quids out of this are the bookies, they are laughing there bloody heads off watching the so called experts on these threads. Covert lock down I think and wait and see what the club directors decide and then communicate appropriately.

Perhaps clubs have been told no fans at all next season . If so, I can fully understand them sticking with Deano. He knows the current crop and clearly there will be very few ins and outs anywhere due to desperate finances.

There's no chance that had a decision like that been communicated to all 92 clubs it would've been kept quiet.  Someone will have leaked it immediately.

You don’t have to be Mrs Marple to figure it out. It’s looking increasingly unlikely that we will get 30% of crowds, at best.

If the speculation is bothering you that much, you could always not read and comment on it?

Haven't said we won't see further restrictions... I'm just saying they I don't believe for a second that clubs have already been told there'll be no fans for the whole of next season. There'd have been a leak somewhere within minutes.
