Great news and well done to the club for getting an already-excellent and improving manager locked in. He may well be the most valuable asset on the books.

The longer contract will probably deter the Blackpools of this world, whilst the Sunderlands and Ipswichs would have to show us the colour of their money.

Cracking news. Something I'm sure most if not nearly all of us can agree on.

The 3.5 year deal does tie in with my earlier comments on a thread about Wellens potentially being poached in 3.5-4.5 seasons, by a descending Prem or ascending Champ side (and no not the potato based dish).

Stability? New signing? Perm or loan?

That's fantastic news. Wasn't expecting that today.

How people's views have changed. When i posted on her that it looks like Wellens will be our new manager, there was a lot of doom and gloom.

He's done a great job and long may it continue

Yeah. Who’d have thought Power knew what he was doing!

Tbf, he deserves to have appointed a manager who has turned out to be a success. The previous couple were probably the right ‘sort’ of managers but, unfortunately, not the right actual manager.

Great news.

How long is Jewell tied down for?

Isn't Jewell purely just on a consulting basis?

If I'm not mistaken Jewell said something along the lines of if/when Wellens goes, so will he. It was in some interview he did that mentioned Power had actually approached him for the manager job and that's when he recommended Wellens.

Apologies for the source.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7982193/Paul-Jewell-lost-football-hes-working-old-magic-Swindon-Town.html

Quote
Instead he was attracted by Derby County’s history, but the team were relegated to the Championship. Another spell at Ipswich was unsuccessful and Jewell seemed lost to football until his former Bradford team-mate and now Swindon chairman Lee Power offered him the manager’s job at the County Ground.

Jewell didn’t want the job, but recommended Wellens, with whom he had worked briefly at Oldham. Power agreed, but only if Jewell came to help as director of football.

‘Director of Football aren’t usually nice words in England, but Richie knows I’m not after his job. If he got the sack, I’d go as well,’ explains Jewell.

‘I can deal with agents during the transfer window, let him concentrate on the football and maybe help him avoid certain mistakes by talking things through. I like the way he works and treats people. There is no reason he can’t get to the Premier League.’
