I think he's more likely to go to Blackpool to be honest.

Having said that, some Reading fans I know seem adamant he's going there. I'm not sure they can afford him, think the Orient owner has a few quid in his pocket so won't need the cash. Reading are hardly flush with money themselves.

I have heard from someone close to Wellens that he is keen to move back to his Manchester home.

If he does choose to leave Orient (where he has been denied the funds to sign a couple of players in the last windows...one being Dom Telford) then he will choose Blackpool over Reading for certain.

Firefighter, has to be worth a risk at this stage for them, not sure how much Lidls will lose if they are relegated but if Sam can get the best from them in the last few games it will be worth several million to the club. They are in freefall currently, big gamble.

I work with a well connected life long Leeds season ticket holder and I believe they have some serious American investment that hinges on them staying in the league, hence the panic stations.

Current fad, certainly in the PL, seems to be the appointing of interim managers / coaches.
Doesn't seem to be working with 2 of them being sacked and a third one who would now be out of a job had he been appointed a month earlier.

You would like to think he has learnt his lesson already, that the grass isn't always greener being close to home.

Relegation alone is estimated to cost clubs about £90m, so it makes sense, lack of extra revenue, sponsorship etc as well as TV rights. Its fucking mental.

Absolutely, I hear he is fed up with travelling, also Blackpool are a club very close to his heart and he has bonds with their fans too.

Darrel Clarke said to be excited and ready to get hands on with his new managerial role at Isle of Dogs FC.

Reports say he's 'chomping at the bit'. I bet he is  Pint

Understandably too. Cheap option is an understatement.

Quote
Rovers said in a statement: ďThe club has considered several highly qualified candidates, however Ianís coaching abilities, knowledge of the playing squad and the staff as well as the clubís aims to balance player development with winning games ultimately made him the standout choice.Ē

Andy Parkinson will continue in his role as first-team coach, while the club continue their search for a technical director.
Cheap.
