He did manage Sheff Utd for a while but rumours are saying he has been offered 2 million a year (god knows how with FFP and the trouble we're already in). Apparently Steve Agnew and Stephen Clemence (his back room team) have already signed contracts and will take control after tomorrow until he is ready to join permanently ... Seems a bit of a joke situation if that is the case, surely he is ready to take over or he isn't ready? but god knows with us at the minute. I can only imagine he has been promised money to spend which either means players going in January (Westwood, Hooper, Fletcher, Forestieri maybe even Tom Lees?), investment is near and Chansiri does actually want to sell (which doesn't make sense as my limited knowledge of FFP means it doesn't matter how much money the owner has, it's the fact we do jack shit commercially and pay stupid wages etc), or we're going to say sod FFP and really go for it?
He has a good record of getting teams promoted so I actually don't care too much about the Sheff Utd link, I just question whether he is the man for the job at the minute, or is he another one of those manages that always gets jobs on past reputation, and past reputation alone (See Pardew, Allardyce, Moyes etc in Premiership). Either way I'll go and freeze tomorrow and hopefully pick up 3 points against Preston.
