    On t
    I will be more than surprised if it is Drury because I think they will want someone with contacts for players

    To be honest @Bronco@Bronco if they put drury in charge you can changed those odds for relegation to 1/6 and Edin and his silent partner will be in for a shock. They think they got a rough ride this season I dread to think what might happen during the next season.

    I mean... There's appointing from within - usually your number two - and then there's appointing a coach who isn't even your number two...

    And never has been...

    And actually has previous....

    And actually did fail already...

    At non league level...

    Yeah, this is a wind up that further illustrates how clueless the bookies are (not that they care, because each duff bet is money in the coffers).

    Do NOT take the betting odds seriously ;)

    As I say he went straight from playing where he was very popular at the Avenue straight into management not ideal. He has done all his badges and he could do a good job. All I am saying is if he was to be appointed he needs to be judged like any other by results and how players improve

    Edin needs to be very careful. His interview the other day had an undertone of “my way or the highway”. Yes he is the man who has invested financially and he can do what he wants but his model needs the fans onside more than any other and he would do well to remember that when making decisions. We are emotionally invested too and won’t go quietly if at all.

    I am not taking too much notice of betting. It is mainly driven by fans, none of them know what is happening. Plus they have Warburton as fav? I doubt he will be next manager.

    If he gets the job, 6/1 for relegation is a great bet.

    Sacked at Bradford (Park Avenue) after less than twelve months in charge - National League North, sixth tier of English football.
    Hell, if that is the calibre of managers that we are looking at we all might as well throw our hats in the ring.
    Surely someone's havin' a laugh???

    That's the way it is in business I'm told, surround yourself with like minded employees who all buy into your model and your problems go away.

    The bookies are having a right laugh giving odds on various candidates. Like taking candy from a baby. As one poster has already said, save your money until an appointment has been made and then consider if we're destined for the drop.

    Didn't Swansea appoint the local school teacher a few years back?

    That didn't go very well.

    That's what I thought but i was told better chance of successes if your all puling the same way, but I'm sure we needn't worry Martin Drury hasn't a chance of getting the head coaches job ......................has he ?.

    Stop now Park. It's silly.

    Nobody is saying that he's 100% guaranteed to be a failure, just that given his profile it's by far the most likely outcome.

    People are judging him on his results (they're shit) and whether he developed players (he didn't) and to expect any other outcome is just being positive for the blind sake of it.
