    Actually, as Deano said he'd do it for nowt, he'd fit right in.

    I wish!

    If it’s Appleton, and he’s probably one of the very few that’d accept the clowns terms, then they can go and get ****ed!

    Appleton is just one of those blokes who inspires no emotion in me whatsoever , not anger or joy , just a depressing void of emptiness

    Must say if its Appleton or Pennock, I would rather have Pennock. He obviously has feelings for the club having been here some time, brought through the Academy players which is going to be very important , and worked for a year with the likes of Burke, de Wijs etc who we will really need to kick on. I realise he's a bit of an unknown quantity as a manager but in the current circumstances I would be happy to see him rather than yet another English manager who's been the rounds already and is looking for another payday.

    Appleton's a completely uninspiring choice. Other than overseeing an Oxford team on the rise, his record is distinctly meh.

    Agree, Appleton is very uninspiring to say the least. But its a very Allam appointment and it'll probably be him.

    He'll be very cheap, because he's desperate?

    Because it’s part of the slippery slope that they seem intent on going down?

    Nobody was inspired by the Adkins appointment. If it has to be Appleton so be it, uninspiring manager for an uninspiring team.

    I wasn't overly happy with Adkins, but that was mainly down to his annoying personality , which grew on me in the end . But he did at least have some success on his CV to back it up , I don't see why people keep employing Appleton

    Exactly.. very Allam because an unambitious appointment like Appleton shows how much they dont give a **** about our club any more.

    The names of Bruce, Phelan, Slutsky and Adkins are a thing of the past. The idea of employing a manager with ambition and talent are no longer in their thoughts.. It's purely down to who will be cheap, who is desperate for a job and who will put up with their crap.

    Nothing personal against Appleton, I dont know the guy, but its a really poor choice if he does get the job. A manager who's pretty much failed wherever he's gone will be given the rails at a club in dire need of a decent manager to help keep our heads above water. Adkins did, Appleton wont.
