West Brom is a 200 mile daily commute around Birmingham

Huddersfield is 150 mile commute and add into that they don't seem to be splashing the cash under the new owner

Hull is obviously nearer but with their current owner would any sensible aspiring manager want that job

Forrest sacked the manager and appointed another one within 10 minutes so doubt they were ever under consideration

Derby seemed to want Cocu from the outset 

Boro see commute issue above

 

Sheffield is commutable for them on a daily basis and also has an ambitious chairman who want to get to the premier league

 

You could be absolutely right, think we often forget that managers have a life outside of football.

I have never claimed to be in the know on anything on this site but on this occasion I can guarantee he's not been offered any championship job apart from Huddersfield.

How do you 'guarantee'????, as a direct contradiction to a sports journo who's worked at mail & independant??, just curious??

A risky but exiting gamble. It’s a yes from me. Hope it happens.

Family members within Lincoln City football club. All I am prepared to say.

Not a direct quote from Cowley himself though about Hull and West Brom.

It's reported by a sports journalist in a national newspaper!!!, if any party considered the statement egregious surely they would have sought a retraction!?, im not aware of any!!!

 

Sorry Tommy, while it may or may not be true about Hull and West Brom, I certainly wouldn't take something as fact just because a journalist for a national newspaper wrote it. Their job is to stir up interest to get clicks, sell papers, etc. I have to agree with s29wfc's. I always scan an article for the quotes, that's where the truth is (and even then it can be chopped up and misrepresented). Anything else is just a journalists opinion, which I couldn't really care less about.

Not having a pop at you mate, but I distinctly remember under Carlos, we won four ( I think it was) on the bounce & people were screaming for his head because of the so called ‘style’ we were supposedly playing at the time.

All the posts from that time will obviously still be archived, but it was meltdown on here at the time, so I reckon wins would placate people for a couple of weeks but the inevitable murmurings of discontent would soon kick in, if indeed they DO play the style referred to.

 

Hmm i dont remember this but i doubt anyone was screaming for his head after 12 points from 12.

I think the only explanation to turning down the reported humongous salary increase he/they would have received by joining Huddersfield, is that an equally humongous or humongouser salary is available elsewhere. Hope that's us.

Well no i wouldn't be taking something as fact just because its from a journo. But in all fairness i'd lean a little more to what they print than rumours on a fan website!!!. Also not sure the amount of 'clicks' generated by a story on the lincoln manger would really amount to too much in 'sales'!!!!

Think there's something in it, Lincoln would only say last night he would be in charge for their game at Donny, and after the game he dismissed the Huddersfield approach but not ours. When asked by Lincoln journalists after the match if he expects to be at Lincoln for the rest of the season he replied no one knows what tomorrow can bring.

I wont lie,  All I've heard is that talks are ongoing with Lincoln, Basically as what sky are reporting. What I do know though is if we can pull it off we've got one hell of a coup. His attention to detail and man management skills are exceptional from what I got told.

Ooh, interesting. Not wishing you to 'speak out of school', but you any idea why it was a no to udders???. Cheers

Oh and i agree, if it were to happen, it could well be a bit of a master stroke from DC!?

Fair enough. I'm just a cynical git. I don't trust secondary sources, irrespective of who states it, until I see or read some direct evidence. I enjoy rumours and speculation, but I take them all with a pinch of salt.

I have a separate bag of salt for Owlstalk. lol

You might be surprised.

 

We got to the point where playoffs were taken for granted and winning wasn’t enough.

Folk on here were apoplectic when we finished 4th on 81 points, due to style of football. I think we'd all take that now though, whatever style we're watching.

My guess is they intend to stay at Lincoln and take them to the championship. 

We are not an attractive proposition anymore. Money is not everything and if their success continues they will have bigger pay days.
