I'll hold my hands up, I did say the other day that I thought GS had said something along these lines when NJ left first time around, although I couldn't remember exactly what he said. I did then remember that Sir John Still joined us from Dagenham though, which kind of blew that out of the water! So as you suggest, what he said must have been a bit more nuanced than that.
Probably more along the lines that we wouldn't be underhand about it in the way Stoke were, but would do it properly like Southampton did. (and only when we're approaching a long international break due to a winter world cup)
Although there is no break for Leagues One & Two, so that doesn't apply to some of the names being suggested. But as you say, the overall idea must have been to do with the manner of it rather than just the timing - although I wish I could remember the actual quote! Not that it matters, it just bugs me that I can't remember, that's all.
A quick Google reveals that they'd openly said (in February) that they had identified their chosen successor for and with Ralph Wotsit for when he retired in a couple of years time. His departure came a lot earlier of course but I'd guess they meant NJ. Whether he was 'tapped up' a while ago we'll not know, but news gets round doesn't it...
You are too defensive Vinny and come across like you are spoiling for a fight a lot of the time when itís clear the tone people have posted. So much genuine discussion gets closed down by people like you on here.

Calling out inaccuracies is not 'closing down genuine discussion' though is it Osmosis? If we're going to discuss stuff it's essential to get the facts right (or we'll end up like the kids playground that is parliament at Question Time!)
WSV obviously has a connection with the club and to my knowledge has never posted anything inaccurate about their actions or policies, whereas some posters (not that one) seem to go out of their way to misrepresent and claim opinion as fact. They do much more damage to discussion I'd say.
If there's room for misinterpretation or misrepresentation people will find it. Not necessarily meant in this case, but it often is. Look at all the 'no information about Power Court' and 'not being honest about when they knew' guff.
One category we're probably not looking at is those managers who've got a lot of experience, have a certain way of doing things and have maybe been around the block a little bit. That's not our profile," said Sweet.
