He hopes that the swift decisiveness which ended Eck's ill-fated year in charge will continue with the unveiling of a new manager to give the club a totally fresh impetus.

I can't understand why Curbs is mentioned - same as last year. He's been out of football management for a few years now.

Do you really think they would go for a manager who only just got a local rival relegated for the second season in a row!!?? Give them some credit... Surely not... Gulp! ;)

no way will they let us down this time. Young and hungry is what the press say and I'm very confident they are right. Very confident.

Fear, you need to be involved in the negotiations but you are not allowed to recommend yourself.
