I Would Want To Be In Place For Pre Season

I Would Want To Be In Place For Pre Season

To sign off the night after more Oleizms in Norway, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been quoted saying, if an offer comes in, and if he accepts, he would want to be in place for pre season.

With various things going on over in Norway, claims and counter claim as covered Here, Ole has been quoted as saying:

'My answer was that if Aston Villa will have a new manager and they want me, and I agree, they can not wait until after the season. It will naturally take place in the Norwegian holiday. Most likely with Honefoss as the last match (MF - on Friday I believe). A new manager must be in place from pre season, it's the natural time.'

Quotes from the Sunday Mercury.

Just keeps gathering pace doesn't it, but each of the translations are slightly different and we seem to get more 'considered content' every few hours from the same press conferences which is a little confusing and frustrating.

Oh well, decent way to sign the night off I think. Admittedly these quotes are based on the answers he gave to the questions he was asked, but again as the first link above, he really cannot be happy with how Molde are trying to paint him at the moment. He's made clear the answers to the questions and any possible actions he takes are thoroughly hypothetical at the moment because he hasn't been offered the job.

So why are Molde reacting the way they are?

Have an Ole Forum Thread to relax you into bed as you conjugate possible reasons.

What happened was that the Director of Molde Fotballklubb (not the owner Kjell Inge Røkke) came out in the Lokal newspaper Romsdals Budstikke, and revealed the answer that Ole Gunnar Solskjær gave to the director before traveling to Birmingham, and he also insinuated that he felt that OGS leaving was a refusal to follow orders. the 3 core questions were as following: Q: If the right offer comes in, will you leave? A: Yes, i would leave, most likely after the match against Hønefoss 28th of May. Q: Who of the backroom staff would you take with you? A: Richard Hartis, and Mark Dempsey Q: Who of the players would you bring with you? A: Magnus Wolff-Eikreim Solskjær reacted negatively to the answers to these questions being released in the press, since it apparently was agreed on meetings earlier in the day that they would look towards the future, and deal with the challenges ahead, not keep harping on about what had already happened. Bottomline: If Randy Lerner offers OGS a contract, odds are he will accept it, and come flying as fast as he possibly can, especially after what the Director of MFK did this evening.

randy has flown back to the us because he is going to offer the job to OGS - i don't think there are any other candidates. they don't want the media to think we have gone just after one guy. if OGS was one of many - we surely would have interviewed people in this country FIRST as it would just be much more simple. even more reason to speculate that he is our first choice for our position.

Thanks Molde. You're making OGS's decision all the more easy. Let's hope he's in place well before the Euros and can then spend some quality time scouting and getting organised for an exciting season ahead.

col8: all of them? :) nah seriously, i would hope that he would submit a cheeky offer for Markus Henriksen though, he has the potential to be truly fantastic

Its so nice we're all excited and interested in the future again and not just (rightly) whinging and moaning. I for one am glad we're being linked with appropriately experienced/interesting names- the rest is a nice problem to have. Hurrah for Villa!

If its true that RL has flown back to the states then he won't be interviewing Lambert on monday, it also means that the board ARE reading the various forums to gauge the fans reaction

Has anybody else got the urge to watch the Sandnes Ulf v Molde game this afternoon? I've always said the Tippeligaen is the most exciting league in europe.
