Hi Smithills gent 

Bolton fans going into BarrowWays to troll them is one of the most embarrassing things I've ever heard of. How small-time have we now become?

Given the current climate I think it would be fitting to give the job to Phil Brown he would be our first black manager 🖤

If he resigns, is it not all bets are off regarding compo

Not that simple. They will still have to agree to his resignation and they aren’t going to do that if he’s heavily linked with us. 

Plus there will be a provision for this in his contract. Some sort of anti competition clause. 

Otherwise why does anyone ever pay compo for a manager?

To be fair that's not a lot for a manager seemingly in the Wilder mould, it could cost us a damn site more if we're stuck down here for years.

It's a lot of money to release an up until now non league manager to a 4th division club but maybe there'll be some compromise as the Inglorious Basterd above suggests. I wonder what Plymouth would have been asking for Lowe.

I'm pretty sure Allardyce walked from notts county in similar circs?

Games moved on a fair bit in terms of sophistication since then.  
 

How many legal cases were kicking around the game at that time? I go back to my initial point why doesn’t everyone do that? Why pay compo?

Well if Sharon put 10k on him when he was way out in the odds, she’ll have the compo covered.

I think we all know it’s going to be him subject to the financials of the deal possibly. Good statement of intent from The club if we get him. 

Agree 

Its not just about paying the compensation for him - its satisfying him personally that once the club is stabilised and we come out of the embargo,  monies will be available to invest going forward, and that FV aspirations and medium term vision match his own. 

From Evatts point of view , were he to stay at Barrow , there is every chance they could realistically challenge for promotion this coming season - with a bit of strengthening ( seem to recall 1/3 of clubs coming out of the National League into League two have gone straight up to League One ) 

Were he to do that -  he then becomes a very wanted man and he knows that

Had a message from a well-informed Barrow fan that I know and he said they’re pretty insistent on the compensation being paid up front. Told him they’re in for a rude awakening if they think that’s how it works in League Two. Even Salford would think twice about paying that in a lump sum rather than instalments even at the best of times, never mind when nobody has had any cash flow for months.

250k seems a lot of money for a manager who has had 3 matches' experience in the Football League

His assistant at Barrow is Peter Atherton. Blast from the past

Big risk from his point of view if he jumps ship, speaks to us and finds he doesn’t want to work under Phoenix etc. If he speaks to us before resigning then we’re in to the realms of illegal approaches and all that carry on. 

I think it’s probably fair to assume that we’ve already spoken to him (on the QT) and he’s happy to join us pending a compo agreement with Barrow. Once he tells Barrow of his desire to join us the compo will probably come down in value!

Did we poach Parky from Bradford or did he resign/out of contract?

Anderson probably somehow got them to pay us.

Would I be right in thinking that a lot of player contracts expire on the 30th? If so having a manager in place by then would be crucial to make sure we hit the ground running with transfers. 

I don’t like the idea of paying such a big price for a non league manager but if we’ve got the money then go for it. Just reckon we could do with some of that money for player contracts...

what would you rather have a good manager or more of a pick from the free agent catalogue?
