'If It's Football, It's Vital'

And now Appleton is 'set' for PFC!

So, we have had Dave Jones, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Sean O'Driscoll and most recently Steve Coppell down as 'set' to become our next manager!

Coppell was '70% certain' to get the job, so this left a 30% margin or error...

According to sky sports, and what they 'understand', we now have a new name to be the 'leading the race' with Michael Appleton this name.

The West Brom assistant manager has 'established himself as one of the best young coaches in the country after impressing with the Baggies' and this, so say sky, has impressed CSI as well?!

'If' this has truth to it then 'perhaps' the thoughts that Coppell could be director of football ahead of someone may have legs after all...

I still think all these names are just guesses.... I guess, we'll be surprised by the new manager when it is announced. Could it be a name that wasn't mentioned at all? Could it be a return of an ex manager in Avram for instance? This is all exciting, but the longer we wait, the boring it becomes!

At 20th in the table we certainly need someone to give us stability. A run of bad results could see us in the drop zone, we need wins and a Manager NOW.

Ummmm, good coachs are one thing, good proven managers are another. Let him cut his teeth at the sharp at end somewhere else.

I still think a committed Coppell would be a good thing.

Derby aside coporal Guy isn't doing to bad. Perhaps they are hoping he will take the job despite his denials.
