Looks like Alan BIggs' Paul Cook campaign is going to succeed.

 

Odds collapsing on Cook now odds on.

 

Good appointment IMO wanted him when Monk was sacked

Agree, me too. In the situation we find ourselves in and with the players Chansiri has recruited, he is a sensible choice.

 

Hopefully he can hit the ground running, bring some mid table security and stability. I question whether he's the right manager for a promotion push (although done it in L1), but right here and now, would be a positive  appointment.

I assume Windass will be off to WBA too then!?

 

Hopefully not for £400k

 

Surely would need £1m at least, Premiership team, desperate for attackers... exploit that.

Not the exciting appointment I’d hoped for but should keep us in the league.  I suppose with Chansiri in charge we can’t exactly dream of promotion anytime soon anyway, so Cook will do for me.

I can confirm just seen him KFC car park doing a zoom call withDC, copper came over and asked him why he was so far from home and he said for work!

The odds collapsing has more to do with fans betting, than who the eventual Manager will be.

On Cook, I previously said it was an appointment I could live with. Might be the nearest we get to some form of concensus without everyone falling out over not getting their no.1 choice.

 

Appoint him and let’s get on with it.

"The trouble with "lessons from history" is that we usually read them best after falling flat on our chins."   

 

"Girls are simply wonderful. Just to stand on a corner and watch them go past is delightful. They don't walk. At least not what we do when we walk. I don't know how to describe it, but it's much more complex and utterly delightful. They don't move just their feet; everything moves and in different directions . . . and all of it graceful."  Starship Troopers, Amen!

Probably the best we could hope for in the situation that we find ourselves in.

 

Just in case it doesn't work, get ready for Chansiri blaming fans for suggesting him

Not for me. Would rather an unknown or exciting foreign manager. 

Hopefully it will be just to the end of the season and then we bring In someone else.

He'd be more than a sensible choice mate, just been having a detailed look at his cv and its more impressive than I first thought.

Copper said “Ha ha, pull the other one, a scouser working”.

They will be unknown for a good reason.

Hold up. Can’t appoint him for two weeks apparently as he has COVID.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only joking. Calm down dears. Have your Snickers.

Agree, certainly a credible  candidate. I'd be happy if appointed
