Coincidental or not?
So Vahid Halilhodzic keeps 'talking up' his chances of landing the Pompey job but Pompey are 'refusing to comment', although this is neither confirming or denying anything -that in itself is something more than we have on previous rumours!
When other managers have been 'linked' we have denied things, but we are not doing this here with this guy...
Now, to spice it up even more the Bosnian is 'said' to be on the verge of stepping down from his job with the Ivory Coast - this seems more than 'a coincidence' does it not?
Quietly going about his business yet being 'linked' with the job - which to be fair he started really, these 'links' get stronger, we then hear talk about announcements being made soon and now there is talk of him stepping down from his post with the Ivory Coast - there seems to be too much in this for something not to be on the cards.
I think we have found our new manager guys...
And, despite not being overly convinced I must confess, I think a calculated risk could pay off as I am told that 'in France he is considered a tactical master along the lines of Wenger,' now that is some praise and if he could live up to that we would be onto a winner, right?
We 'could' be hearing some form of announcement before this week is out - I would say that Friday 'might' be a good day for people to look out for further developments...
PLAY UP POMPEY!
