    Not at all it’s taking a punt . Some people would be very happy if we made Craig Bellamy manager with absolutely no experience and not as qualified why because he is known. I have already said I will be amazed if he becomes manager

    I think he has started using @Offside@Offside
    I couldn't be sure but he looks more likely to be said name as he's very strange.

    At least Bellamy hasn't already failed though. That's a massive unknown.

    Druary has experience, he is more of a known commodity than someone like Bellamy. What we know about him is woeful.

    I'd probably rather pick a fan out from the crowd.

    Right my final point on this he was made manager in his twenties because of his leadership on the field. It is very difficult to come straight from playing with players and managing them. I have no idea how he is doing with the youth set up but if he was appointed he must have done a good job he has all the badges and is still young. All this is irrelevant because he won’t be appointed

    Not the manager odds in the slightest. Liquidity in such a book is so low, that nominal sums are only needed to move the market.

    6/1 on relegation with a maximum stake if £125 suggests early money for bcfc to be relegated, as it quite rare to have capping on an ante post market to such low levels.

    Mind, already had a bit of it myself.

    I am surprised Keith Curle isn’t on the betting list he was at our last home match

    You would not get them odds. 13/2 for BCFC to be promoted.

    Just noticed the odds on BCFC to be relegated, have been cut from 6/1 to 5/1. Interesting early move.

    Whoever the coach, he will surely need to have good contacts within the Football League. In a way, I think the role of head coach is probably more critical than that of a coach understudying a manager. So, imo, his selection will be crucial to our progress and is probably the bigger judgement call. It's not just about getting the best out of what's available, but he needs to have a sound analysis of proven systems and high technical awareness through wide experience of working with youth and seasoned players alike..

    So 6 and a half to 1 to get promoted and 5/1 go down, not much difference between the two.

    Only the one operator pricing up at the moment too. If betting alone, Skybet suggests a lower mid table finish.

    Prior to the start of last season (so much wheeling and dealing to be done before an accurate assessment of the forthcoming season can be determined ), BCFC were 9/2 for promotion and 9/1 for relegation
