If it is him, I disagree, it is the end of the world ;)
Well, it'll mean I'll have to do an Osmo to Everton for 18months, until he's inevitably replaced and I can have my club back.
Genuinely I dont - but if it is, its not the end of the world.
I think he is one of the back ups if we dont get who we want - I think Nuno is/was also a back up - but he might go to spurs, meaning Benitez is chief back up
There HAS to be reason for the club taking so long.
If it was to be Dunc, or Howe, or Rafa, or any available manager it would be done and dusted if they were number 1 choice.
There has been talk for a while we want to speak to a manager at the Euros - could be Martinez, could be someone else
I firmly believe we are now also looking at managers under contract too.
Lots of contracts run until end of June etc, and lots of clauses will too, for example perhaps a manager we want has a different release clause from July 1st?
I also think, but I'm not sure and I'm too lazy to check, that our accounts end at the end of June. meaning if we did want a manager who we had to pay compensation for, due to FFP covering 3 seasons, its sensible to wait til the financial year ticks over to make that happen.
Of course, I might be reading too much into it. It could be we are waiting because there is not much a manager could do right now, so why not wait. but that seems daft, even for us.
Ultimately, I dont think they are sitting on their hands, knowing its going to be rafa, but waiting for no reason.
Brands leaks nothing, and I doubt he's just sitting on his arse.
I also doubt Moshiri is running round trying to do everything.
