Pretty sure Gregor has written / interviewed this scout before.  People have a dig at Gregor unfairly, but he does have contacts, and ones that will speak.

through this whole debacle, gmcg is the only one to come across as credible and in credit

I think the board are at loggerheads one person wants Hughton one wants Holden perhaps they have reached a compromise where Holden becomes Hughtons assistant hence getting rid of Macca to free up some funds 

They'll announce Hughden.

Think that would be quite bizarre and whoever wants Holden over Hughton should be having their head checked

Well we all know that but obviously someone wants him must be for a financial reason tho no one would chose Holden just on his football credentials over Hughtons

Does it free up funds if we have to give him a payoff?

Who knows probably not but it frees up space for CH to bring in a quality coach to work alongside himself and Holden

Fewer coaching staff. Less coaching. All down to 'countable nouns' apparently. Lockdown has meant less work getting done and fewer cars.

(This is much more fun that guessing who'll be our next manager now!)

Indeed. One can count staff so it's 'fewer'.

Yes I wondered if the club is cheesed off with all the stories/rumours coming out in the Post and JM has been taking to Gregor too much. 

It was............ Jamie McAllister's account.

I think Holden will be Head Coach. And he will bring in a new defensive coach to replace Jamie Mac (sounds like he was closely aligned with LJ anyway) which might be Williams, and then a new assistant, maybe someone he has worked with before at Oldham?

All this is, is more evidence that Holden and the board had already discussed backroom staffing (as was rumoured last week I think?)

Why obviously? Rumour is all we have. And that's nothing.

, What goes around. Macca replaced Pemberton who LJ threw under the bus to make it look like Pembo was responsible for the record losing run. 

First rule of survival in management, appoint a weak no 2 who will not overshadow you, pose a threat, or give the people in charge an easy out by making it easy to sack you when there's a decent no 2 ready to step up. (See Boris Johnson for case study).  That's why LJ appointed McCallister and that's why Holden would appoint a man with zero coaching experience aka Williams.

Why do people say this bollocks????

Unless it's for misconduct or worse in which case it might be classed under legal costs or costs of exceptional litigation, I'm fairly sure it would eat into our FFP allowance that little bit more. 

Appointment of coach likewise, possibly if compensation required to get them that too.

Having said that, cost of high calibre manager and or coaching staff can result in long term savings or gain as they improve what they have firstly.

And currently resolving the impasse with the longest ever game of rock, paper, scissors.

Complete and utter imagined bollocks CR - that might be that happened in your had but reality LJ was told by SL to choose his own assistants- Macca and Deano both who LJ  had worked with previously.

Pembo was not ‘thrown under the bus’ by anyone. Fact is there was no longer any room at the inn and he moved on.

Or alternatively something quite different might happen!  Keep your eyes on the official site...

(btw, I loved your suggestion that this comprises ‘evidence’, based on something ‘rumoured last week’!  Great stuff, worthy of Trump!)

Does sound like a sign that the new manager will not be DH and that he will be given the assistant role as a thank you for steadying the ship after LJ's demise.

If that is the case and it turns out to be CH or even PC, thank God! No disrespect Deano!

What we need is a manager who has a record of promotions from the Championship and also someone who can attract decent players to want to play for the club.

I can just see the players turning up on Monday for pre-season and walking in, where the new manager jumps out and shouts "Surprise!!!"

I need to get out more I know!

All the best to JM - seemed to love the club. Seems odd to sack him. Maybe he did something we're not aware of. If Holden's the new HC, and didn't want JM after working with him for as long as he has, maybe this is Gate of Thrones.

Did Gregor not report a few days ago that it had progressed to the stage where Holden was now starting to put together his support team? Could be this flows from that?

Just want it done now, whoever.

Hmmmm...........and by coincidence this evening GMG goes public with the impending Holden appointment.... 

Also having said 3 hours ago in the JMac tweet “We're not expecting any news on a new head coach today”

All very odd.

Bristol Post is stating (1903 this evening) that Holden has been offered the job and the reason for the delay is because he has been away on holiday this week! Apparently he is taking the weekend to think about whether to accept or not!

A - WTF! What a rubbish appointment. Really backward thinking.

B - If he has to take time to think about it, why do we want him in the job? Surely we want someone who is passionate and cant wait to get started?

What a nightmare.

Good point.

But the club aren't stupid enough to appoint a rookie manager with a player as his assistant.

Are they ?

Anyone ?

Shit.

 

Shit, they are.
