{Ed013's Note - I think he is good friends with Hockaday}

Apparently the 3 that were interviewed today are Dave Hockaday, Gary McAllister and Chris Hughton. I don't have a contact/source but just looking at the betting, Cellino obviously wasn't impressed by them. The odds for all 3 have drifted massively and Eamonn Dolan is currently favourite, with his odds shortening considerably to nearly odds on. He's currently the head of Reading's academy.
Am I mad to think that we should be able to attract a top manager/coach?!
Is the problem the fact that Cellino stated the job is coach and not manager? Is it putting people off the job?
If Dolan gets it he could prove me wrong but I just think the club is deserving of a top manager that has been proven at championship/premier league level

{Ed013's Note - Chris Hughton wasn't one of the 3 mate}

Everyone keeps going on about the club deserves a top manager. MC states its a coach we are after.

Also why do people think we need a top manager. Great support I know guys but we have been in mediocrity for 10yrs if you were a top manager would you want us?

Howard wilkinson came from sheff wed when they were in the top league, we could get any manager we choose if we have the money, for me it would be simon grayson I believe he has unfinished business did lose his way a bit, but leeds through and through

No managers! Listen please. Only coaches. Stop thinking orthodox think MC

Hi mate spill what beans you have heard who are the interviewees! As I think all the names being mentioned may possibly be some correct / bit of a smokescreen I also think there may be a outsider thrown in that may surprise us all that's not mentioned!
Thanks bud!

{Ed013's Note - There have been more than 3 people interviewed with the job, but the 3 English (British) he speaks about was Hockaday, Gary Mac and Gibbs. I still feel that he will surprise us with someone else}

I, like you ed, think he's got someone else that nobody has thought of yet too maybe link him with one of the others mentioned as a team I'd go for Gibbs because he ain't been shown the door yet? And it seems the players liked Gibbs too!

I'm starting to think he's going to surprise us too. Like I said I don't have a source/contact in the club, I'm just a fan in Ireland. I got the three names from a friend who works as an analyst in paddy power. He told me there was a considerable run of bets for those three names and they had other info to make Gary Mac favourite for the job over the weekend.
There's a good bit of money for Eamonn Dolan yesterday and today though and I see there's a post from someone saying it's definitely going to be him

Report on NN website that we are interested in Catania defender Nicolas spolli,

Spurs went to buy him 10 months ago he said he was happy where he was but I guess you never know what links MC has!

Think Catania have been relegated since then!

Agree3 Disagree0

Fed up of allthese Italian based players, we won't sign any of them, wish HITC, inside futsal and the other one on newsnow would just give it a rest. I'd like us to sign 3/4 of them but we never do!

really hope leeds get him, liverpool tried sign him last summer for £8 million and he turned them down so now he's willing to move . he is wanting to move due to bad press for allagations he was racist to ballotelli
