Apparently PB is a trained sparky.

This might appeal to Power if any rewiring jobs are needed at the CG and Phil wants to keep his eye in.
Two jobs for the price of one.  Hmmm

Hmm, I hadn't realised he was out Southend for so long.

I just sense that he'd feel 'bigger' than our current position and would jump at a better opportunity.

We all ‘hear’ what you are saying, however, given the way we all are wouldn’t you jump to a better job than you have now? I doubt any gems we find on the pitch are going to hang round either if a big club comes knocking, given our owners penchant for a ‘silly offer’ eh? Then there’s the geezer himself, wouldn’t turn a blind eye to a decent shilling profit from the club once he has seen the maximum return on his investment. Money talks and football is all about money.

That is what being a Town fan does to you. However, as stated PB has been pretty loyal with the clubs he's managed. Derby was his first gig and so was 50/50 if it would work and was a big task regardless. Hull and Southend have been stated (5/6years in management anywhere is good going.) He even managed a season at Preston. 4 clubs in 13 years (5 if you include us, if he doesn't get it it'll be merely a caretaker/interim role so I won't count it yet) is very good and it shows he does like to build his own squad and stick around.

It kind of begs the question if LP gave PB a 5 year contract (on a 1 year review/objectives clause) much like LW, where could PB get us in 5 years? Shades of Hull and a new owner as we progress (LP exiting) gives me stupid dreamlike tendencies. Stop it Bamboo! Stop it now!

Right, so the consensus seems to be that I can chill and not expect any news until around mid July.  Phew.

You'd think if it was a flat "no" then that would be released PDQ.
Must be in negotiations then

I'm not going to be suckered in.... mid July is a good 10 or 11 weeks away. Close season it is.

With the cracking sunshine over the weekend, negating the need for a tanning session, I’m taking that as a sign he’s staying.

Have we heard whether PB has got the job yet? or are we searching for yet another manager.

Maybe, maybe not. Nothing on the advertiser, I just checked so I'll put 2 and 15 together and say he's too expensive and we're looking for a manager who wants to take a step up from non league. Hopefully bringing some unpolished turds with him or her, or whatever gender they want to be today. There hope that helps.

I like your thinking - we should get a female Manageress in!

The positive PR, and ribbing from opposing teams, would be fun.  Sort of the complete opposite of Di Canio.  I'm sure Sky would fall over themselves to make some sort of poor mans effort at a documentary as well.  If we are going to languish in this division for a while, we may as well be trailblazers.  I'm not suggesting Sheena Easton here though, we'd need to take it seriously.

Grace Jones would be perfect, African decent, female, far more scary than PDC. If the players slacked off she'd beat the shite out of them. There we've solved the manager problem, whilst getting tons of free median coverage.
