How has Tim Walter shortened so much?

 

Took off his Cuban heels?

 

Those markets move with very little money wagered.

 

They do. But who is betting on him? He's not one of the names that everyone seems to want. Seems strange that his odds would be shortening

Someone has probably heard we’ve been in touch with him, thing is people seem to forget we won’t just contact 1 guy, as Gibson himself said we’re talking to 8. So just because we’ve contacted him doesn’t mean he’s definately the guy.

Has Gibson said we are talking to 8 candidates?

I think so in that statement he made, unless I’ve completely imagined it!

I'd love to see the list of 8, its seems alot though.

I see GVBs odds have fallen on Skybet, he would be an interesting one

I imagine woodgate is one of them, then it looks like cowley is another.

Have to say even though it is just an odds list it’s good to see some imaginative names in there rather than the standard Pearson, ince, souness stuff we usually end up with!

It certainly is. If you compare our list on paddypower to that of WBA I am much more excited with ours.

I think if Woodgate DOES get the job, the fact he hasn't been announced straight away and there's been 'deliberations' about it might just be a way of making it look like the club have done their due diligence, reviewed all the candidates, and decided that Woodgate is actually the best for the job.

Maybe I'm thinking too much into it, but if he was announced straight away there would likely be a lot of talk of 'jobs for the boys', but by leaving it a couple of weeks they might be trying to send out the message that hiring Woodgate was a well thought out appointment, based on him being 'the best candidate'.

 

I agree 

 

And could you please forward me the Woody "stories" in private message, thank u ;)

 

I hope your thinking is wrong, Woodgate is not the manager to lead the club.

Nixon reckons Cowley wasn't interested in talking to WBA, so not sure how our chances would fair..

For me, I don't see Cowley leaving Lincoln. He's too invested into the community and project at Lincoln to up sticks.

 

It's only a 2hr commute but I think the foundations for what he's done at Lincoln are too much to pull him away.

 

(I am no way itk but my previous job had a lot to do with an education programme which had close ties with Lincoln City. A source from the club says its "highly unlikely they are looking to move anytime in the near future").

 

My moneys on Woodgate unfortunately, as I think that will be the best stepping stone for Gibbo)

I can't believe the Lincoln manager would turn down the chance to manage us if the option was there. He might be happy at Lincoln but it would be an enormous step up when you compare the size of us and them.

Nixon also said pulis was on a rolling contract and we had to give him a 12 month pay off...

 

As for cowley would he really turn down a championship team who would more than 5x his wage? If he did you could admire his loyalty but you’d also have to question his self belief.

    • I've given the board a bit of a break from my rantings so apologies in advance for those of you who'll read this.  I'm so so sick of how amateurish this club is being run right now. Honestly this season is the first where results don't even particularly bother me anymore, honestly id forgotten about the result until my dad told me about it.  This season is absolute car crash. The summer should've been the perfect time and opportunity to bring in a decent manager who can work with low budgets, but instead we've just wasted it on an amateur who's almost been given a blank card to do what he likes with little repercussions from the above because it would mean Steve having to admit he was wrong.  Having to rely on untested youth just simply because successive managers have spunked money on absolutely awful players, and the top brass have refused to intervene, or at worst they've encouraged these signings.  I'm so fed up with this appointment in particular, because I can't see how any other manager who's only produced 4 wins this close to Christmas would stay in a job, with his only main attribute being that he's a Teesside lad.  And that brings me to the Crux of the problem. The parochialism, the whole "local lad, he's a local lad, proper Boro, Boro through and through him" is killing the club. Karanka, an outside appointment was the first time the club seemed to be even vaguely professional, yet after being failed in the Transfer window, he was sacked and replaced with a god awful manager in Steve Agnew.  The club's transfer policy refuses to look further than the south coast for players, yet some of our best value players were overseas.  Club is an absolute shambles from top to bottom at this moment and nothing at all will change. Well just plod on from loss to loss to draw to unconvincing win. 
    • 4 wins all season is a joke.  Any other manager that wasnt Woodgate would be long gone by now.  In the summer, fair enough, give a rookie a chance. But by christmas time more damage will be done by not getting rid of him.  It is a results business. Repeat. It is a results business.  Woodgate should do the best thing for our CLUB and walk away. Admit defeat and that he was out of his depth.  Gibson should have done this weeks ago. But alas. Here we are.  4 wins all season. 5 points off rock bottom. With the squad we have???? Just when will the tipping point be?
    • It's becoming quite comical now isn't it seeing Woody come up with the same excuses and then the player doing the player reaction more or less saying the same thing lol
    • Just another one to add to the ‘unlucky’ list...
