Who's The Next Boss?

Not Martin Jol, that's for certain. Why would he be daft enough to swap a Bundesliga title for a club with no money whose transfers are decided by someone else?

Besides, the newly loquacious Llambias has stated categorically that the Kinnear, Calderwood and Hughton dream ticket's here to stay: "I know some of the fans have questioned whether he is the right man for the job, but I hope they give him the time to convince them that he is." Most season ticket holders I know have already done just that, and decided they don't like what they see. "If Kinnear's there next year, I won't be," is a line I heard more than once over Christmas.

If we want to catch up with Arsenal or Villa we need to start like they did, by bringing in a top manager like Wenger or O'Neill. By sticking with Kinnear the best we'll ever be is the new Wigan Athletic.

And that's the optimistic view.

does that mean we'll get Insomnia back?
my favourite "We like him and we trust him..." - as you only can with a puppet whose strings you're pulling..

Nah, Insomnia's off to Real Madrid next year. Maybe Barcelona.
I liked that line too. A more honest one would have been "He does what he's told."
