Maybe (and I appreciate this is not what everyone wants to hear) the aim next season is not top 6. It's going to be a very difficult year financially for us and a lot of other clubs and I can't see many incomings other than to replace any we let go.

So maybe the aim is to just get through the season relatively unscathed, give the younger players a good go (Morrell, Vyner, Moore, Walsh, O'Leary) and re-assess next season.

Maybe the board think Holden is the best person to do that as he knows the younger players and probably trusts them a lot more than an incoming manager might. They know him too.

Just a thought.

It's a good theory (and all we have right now is theories). 

If that were the case, the board would be advised to carefully manage expectations. 

Instead of trotting out the usual "Dean's objective is to take us to the Premier League and we believe he will" rhetoric, I'd prefer they go for a more measured tone and convey that decision making has been impacted by austerity measures.

Putting my positivity hat on but I feel if Holden was on the verge of being appointed it would of been announced today, or there would be more noise on media outlets saying an appointment is imminent. 

He's on holiday thou..

If Holden gets this job the revolt from the fans will be huge. SL surely isn't that thick.... 

I think you’ll be surprised.  Yes, a few people will throw their toys out of their prams, but most supporters will just keep on coming (assuming we can).  Remember Pulis?  I can’t think of an appointment more liable to cause a revolt, but nothing happened, aside from many people hating him.  I think if Holden is appointed, many supporters will be disappointed, but they’ll listen to what he has to say and give him a chance.

I actually think that on this occasions thousands will rebel and be very unhappy. Some will give him a chance. A huge majority won’t

I think apathy would be the reaction of most. Maybe the club don’t care, given we can’t come anyway.

So because a billionaire who decided to buy a football club with his huge wealth. We all have to accept his decisions and not have an opinion about it .

Don’t want to break the news but Hughton was the manager (at Norwich) who let Korey go (to Oldham).  He only selected him once as an unused sub in the Prem. ☹️☹️☹️

Apart from the games he played in the Champ. Albeit not many 🤣

I'm hoping for Hughton 🤞 It was that many I didn't even know he did did 😂

It is well known that Lansdown and Ashton like YES men.

They don’t give two sh*ts what the fans think about this. We are just punters nowadays. All a bit predictable IMO especially when this is a pivotal decision for the future of the club.

Not a great start to your OTIB postings even robored wouldn't come out with a remark like that.

Not this time, not 1 person ive spoken too want him, the reaction on Facebook the post here and twitter gives a better indication and I've seen little support on that front ether,

So you genuinely believe that anyone on a forum who disagrees with the clubs approach should support another team?

 

I think he wants to be the new controversial poster either that or he's an annoying prat.

You assume they like YES men because it suits your opinion, in reality they’re businessmen and they like MONEY - which comes from success, just not at all costs risking the progress we’ve made in the last 10 years or so  

We always were just punters even back in the ‘60s when I first went AG, and it was the working class in the standing areas and business men (suits..🙄) in the best seats in the ground.

They do consider fans opinions but they are the ones with the power and the responsibility to take us forward in the way they think is best for everyone - not just to suit a few classless kids painting on some scabby old bedsheets. 

With the current COVID situation many clubs are fearful of the unknown in respect of income and funds for transfers so as SL is a money man - who despite already ‘giving’ us millions , would probably prefer not to risk losing money at this time so I think it will be Dean Holden.

And that's why the club can basically do as they please
