Interesting that Birmingham and Clotet parted ways today rather than at the end of the season. Wondered if they wanted to try to tempt Hughton before we got our claws into him (he had a decent season with them before of course) 

They have already approached him and turned them down. Basket case club no top manager will touch them.

According to a couple of click bait shitbag websites, Hughton has told ‘friends’ that his city appointment is imminent

Unfortunately the timeframe doesn’t work out. Ashton said he hadn’t seen anyone on Wednesday. They might have met Hughton once in the interim, but wouldn’t have met the rest of the candidates. You’d expect at least a two round interview process. After very brief consideration during my mid morning poo my conclusion is: shite

You don’t know that. Football is completely different to a normal interview process. They may of met him last week and they were very impressed with him. They might of then had a board meeting and decided he’s the right man for the job .

Weird thing to come up with in terms of ‘telling a friend’ that he has been lined up....fingers crossed it’s random enough to be true! Would be a fantastic appointment IMO and my first choice by a mile.

Football doesn't work like that, often they only meet 1 person if that's their prime target, in fact there has recently been criticism of the EFL's use of a Rooney rule like system because if a club doesn't go through a shortlisting process and only targets one person they don't need to interview a BAME candidate.

So if Hughton was our first choice and we spoke to him straight away we don't have to go through any sort of process.

Wouldn't be the first time that Mr Soundbite has been a bit slippery with the truth though would it....

Is this all ok process wise anyway if your 1 person is a BAME candidate.

Should be if just interviewing 1 person, if you're considering 2 and both are BAME would be interesting.

@Davefevs wonder if they may have interviewed some other person as well just because.....
