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.
