Todays Sentinel - manager's shortlist

Over 50 applicants, he needs to resurrect his career as MA did, working with a board that lets you manage and a club with championship facilities! I'm sure MA would recommend Vale to Aidy so it'll be a no-brainer.

Bearing in mind that Boothroyd and Coleman are two of the names most heavily touted on this message board in the last few months, I'm delighted to see that the Board are finally listening to the fans! What surpises me, however, is that if the Board think Coleman is a good choice, why have they knocked him him twice already when he applied for the job and why didn't they appoint him in January when he was touted on here and would have at least got us in the play-offs?

 

With regard to the EGM - if the Board was going to call one anyway (which they said they would do within 5 weeks of the AGM) - why have they waited until NLV have forced their hand? According to waht Mr Bratt said at the AGM it should have been called by the end of January at the latest.

 

And finally, is it only me that sees the total irony in these two quotes from Mr Bratt in the Sentinel:

 

(with regard to today's game) "We're not going because our security staff, who liaise with the police, say it would help defuse the situation if we weren't there."

 

(with regard to the EMG) "At the end of the day we want what's best for Port Vale, so if the majority of shareholders feel they want the current directors off the board then we will go."

 

If the majority of shareholders want the current directors off the board then surely one vote per shareholder at the EGM would be the best way to determine that.

And the shortlist is........... Glover, Gannon, ticket office Fred..... as everyone else turned us down.... Glover and Gannon were asked who they would keep on the books, the board signed them up and Fred gets the job..... sounds familiar.

Dear All,

 

I read the board's press release with interest.

 

No response to the revised bid; Mark Sims cold shouldered again; No news of the EGM date being set; Season tickets sales significantly down; Protest march with a coffin; No directors present at the game today; No promotion; Players contracts and futures unresolved - the club seems to be in meltdown - BUT a "business as usual" response from the board and a "head in the sand" attitude to all that is going on around them. Astonishing.

 

No manager in his right mind is going to take this job with an EGM imminent and the prospect of a take over - and indeed why would a manager step in with 2 games to go and so much uncertainty.

 

As for the names on the shortlist all I can say is football is a small world to those who work in it and word is out as to the imminent takeover.

 

The board should be making better use of their time sorting out the EGM rather than trying to win some last minute season ticket sales with a blatant PR stunt throwing managerial names out there.

 

The Directors of a football club should be at every game fulfilling their responsibilities come what may. This board seem all too willing to excuse themselves. You may recollect Peter Coates attended the many Stoke games when the fans were shouting for his head and carrying a coffin to the ground as he understood the responsibilities that came with his position, irrespective of the discontent amongst the fans at the time.

 

Thank you for your on-going support.

 

Regards

Jean,

 

Why would he at least got us into the play offs? He likes to play football, something this side can't do?

 

He would be great but he would have to bring 6 or 7 players in to play this way surely.

 

Because unlike Gannon, Coleman is a pragmatist and would get the best out of the players at his disposal. And bear in mind Gannon brough in 5 loanees! At the end of the day, it looks like we will only be 4/5 points short of the play-offs. Do you really think Coleman wouldn't have made up that shortfall? He is also a much nicer (and funnier) bloke than Gannon!!

Three very good points Jean, why choose a manager that you have rebuffed twice before?

 

And the last two points that is typical of the perverse mind of the Chairman
