I think the same. Haven't heard a whisper about him in the last week or so but I think if he is one of those on the shortlist he has a great chance.

Yeah for me he just makes sense, take what he's doing at Preston and amplify the budget and allow him to recruit the players he wants rather than being given a fraction to reinvest, makes sense from both sides imo. There is a rumoured £3m release clause in his contract that expires in 2 years, but nothing to say that Preston wouldn't be open to accepting a lower amount.

To have six people in your second round interview just means you weren't paying attention in the first interview.

Gregor said Hughton, Cook and Holden are shortlisted along with 2-3 others. Who do you think these are? And I wonder why nothing yet has come to light about their identities...

They've taken a month to device Holden is now in the frame.... I doubt they have a master plan.... It's non football people trying to hire football people...

 What could go wrong...😉

Where is mick McCarthy... would love him to come in for one last swan song 

He's on the Sky Commentary for the Brentford match - perhaps we are waiting for him to finish his Sky duties before announcing him 🙂

That’s funny because Gregor was the one who said Hughton wasn’t anywhere near a done deal when national press and talksport were saying the opposite. And he’s been proven 100% correct.

Far from speculating, if he doesn’t know he doesn’t say anything. If he says Hughton, Cook and Holden are on the shortlist, I believe him.

I believe him too - and I'd go so far as to suggest that the lines on candidates are more or less verbatim what the club has fed him. For whatever reason the club is more than happy for it to be known that they are in for Hughton and Cook, and Gregor's latest piece on Holden is full of detail on why the club appreciates him. I think Gregor knows what he's doing. He's going to have to work with Ashton and his team when this is all over.

No No No

Killed Ipswich 

Really? Thought he did a good job myself but maybe in a minority, they got rid of him after finishing comfortably then brought in guest who took then down next season

Paul Clement maybe! He's done a good job in Belgium and worked with the best managers around so would meet Lansdowns criteria although didn't do very well at Swansea or Reading 

No no no no no.

Proven not to be good enough at this level

It is not Bristol City feeding the info.

Lets be brutally honest here, not one of us has a flamin' clue! 

Superb! And spot on! The usual ‘in the know’ peacocks have been found wanting, posting stuff like “news incoming today or tomorrow” (that was ages ago!!! 😄😅) and then they run and hide when it proves to be a load of guff ... not sure why people pretend? I suppose it’s the whole “I know something that you don’t know” power trip ... but the comedy lies in the fact that they don’t actually know anything....

Hughton’s team? If so, would suggest he was still interested, given the speed in which Gregor discounted tonight’s Telegraph story.

I think they have multiple contacts.

Agree with you there. Look what happened when he left...

Spent 5.5 million in 6 years! Saved them from relegation and took them to a 6th and 7th placed finish. Pretty damn good

Intriguing...my assumption that it was was based on it suiting the club's purposes to put a marker on Hughton and Cook - to declare an interest - and to both be nice to Dean Holden and in the process throw up a bit of a smokescreen. But what do I know? In this case nothing!

I'd still note that in a job like Gregor's it wouldn't be wise to fall out with the football club...you'd tread carefully, as close to the line as possible with stories, without damaging future relationships.
