No wonder people moan when we approach realistic targets.

Eddie Howe!!! 😂

I agree, Eddie Howe is pie in the sky stuff. He will be likely to go to Newcastle United or something. 
 

However, Jason Tindall, who has just been sacked by Bournemouth could be a clever idea. He was Howe’s assistant and was there for all of Bournemouth’s  glory period.

Some interesting responses on here to the latest development. I'd like to add some context. In the past TWENTY YEARS we have only achieved a top 7 finish in the league... ONCE. This was under MA

The meltdown on here is laughable.  Please can someone tell me the success we have had in appointing a manager since Micky left? None. Flitcroft being appointed DoF shows our long term visio

Check out wiki.  He's run the family business with his brother and father for 15 years and has his own football academy.  He's not been "just" a player and manager.  In view of the amount of crit

Maybe we should think outside of the box and approach someone who hasn’t applied? Wonder if that’s happened? Offer Paul Cook £2k+ a week for example?

Paul Cook probably has enough money to buy the club, along with synectics themselves if he so wished. 
 

In fact he is so wealthy, he’d probably feel inclined to give Carol and Kevin a food bank hamper of their own.

@geoff1I'll just come back on that if I may.

This is very clearly at the bottom of EVERY PAGE and I put it there for a reason.

The offending post has been dealt with but don't set unrealistic expectations or moan about moderation because of a user's actions.

The moderators  are volunteers who do it for free in their own time. There should be no expectation that they read everything or that there's not also some responsibility from users to report things.  So, with all due respect - if something is off on here don't blame the moderators - use the report button to tell the moderators. 

In this case this was reported by several others and came to my attention when I came on the site this morning (i.e. as soon as I was aware of it - I am remarkably not on here 24 hours a day watching every post that is made).

Thanks,

Rob

ooooh!!!!!! sorry to upset you matey!😪

I'm guessing Tindall will rock up as Eddie Howe's assistant at Celtic or Newcastle or wherever he goes to.

If he's determined to be a number one though then yeah I'd definitely be up for that. He was Howe's assistant from League Two to the Premier League so definitely knows how it's done.

Ashley Williams has just retired and is doing his badges, he played at every level and captained his country. Feel like he would get the players respect instantly and with having just retired he knows the modern game.

The transfer window just slammed shut this week and our squad is full now. Barring something extraordinary we won't be relegated or in the play-offs. We have a legion of players out of contract in the summer, a few obvious ones being important to keep and the rest being easily replaceable.

I'd rather the right man (or woman) in May than the wrong man now.

That's about the long and the short of it.

Only one ex stoke player has been a successful manager at vale the others failed miserably  we cannot give a inexperienced ex player the job that would be a disaster.

When people say Pugh will get the gig if we do well over the next few games, are we thinking until the end of the season or permanently? Surely at the most until the summer as I would prefer someone who’s got good experience, like Carol said.

Thank you for dealing with the post Rob. A disgusting post from someone supposedly well respected on here.

Adams played for Stoke didn’t he? Was it a loan?

He also held talks with Cardiff ... Cook will manage high end league 1 or championship.

You would be surprised. He’s done ok money wise, he’s comfortable 

Another of your “in the know” insights? Your last was that you knew Derek Adams had applied! 🤣
