If there’s anyone on this planet that would know Ian Evatts contract stipulations and release clauses it’s his fucking agent.

 

And maybe his club.

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 🖤

It does seem a bit of a coincidence that Lowe ruled himself out for the job after it became common knowledge that Evatt was FVs preferred option.

Stevey B - don't talk bollocks lad

And maybe his cub are trying to screw more money out of us than originally agreed, they are crowd funding to get their ground up to scratch so every little helps, so fuck his club, we pay what was agreed.

Yes so why on earth would his agent mislead BWFC?

 

What you don't seem to understand is his agent and Evatt reckon they are still non-league, and Barrow say they are League 2. The difference in wages and bonuses between the two is close to £100k - that's what the dispute is all about. Agent Steve Whiston says buyout clause is £150k, Barrow say it's £250k. 

 

FV will meet them in the middle or it's likely gonna go to tribunal - which nobody really wants.

I would’ve understood if you’d have explained all that in the first place :)

Or maybe Evatt gets pissed off at the club holding him for ransom and walks

We need to go up this season if we are to keep  the likes of Politic and Darcy and grow as a team.....Next season the embargo is lifted and with that expectations will grow. I expect us to get promotion two seasons running and be back in the championship in two years time.

We will only get there if FV are bold and get this appointment right and back him for the following season.

The new manager will have a crop of good young players and the pick of players who are willing to drop to lge 2.

As much as we want to keep them long term, if for arguments sake they leave in a year, we will get a decent fee as they'll still be under contract (I think they run till 2022 but could be wrong).  So if we get lets say half a mil for one or both of them that's a great transfer/salary budget for us.  I'm not half as concerned about losing them in a year than I was about them "doing a Connell" and giving us no benefit at all.  Getting another year out of them and then a good fee is arguably the perfect scenario.

Again, that would result in legal wranglings that are costly and disruptive. Could even end up costing more

I expect promotion like I did when we went into L1 with PP this season. Difference being i grant that PP had a squad to walk it. But I still expect this is our best chance to regroup and build with all that’s going on. Can’t judge till the squad is put together but I’d be massively disappointed with anything less than promotion 

That's a big ask with only 3 automatic places.  You've got to expect Tranmere, Southend are going to be strong, then the likes of Bradford and Salford with big budgets, and the 3 that miss out in the play offs all have stronger squads than we can realistically expect to put together in about 2 months.  It doesnt leave much wriggle room to "expect" promotion, when we have no influence over how good the opposition are going to be.  Let's see some stability, no relegation worries, and a style of play we enjoy watching, with some method and structure behind it.

He wouldn't be the first manager to leave a club to "have a break from football / spend more time with his family " & then a few days later, turn up at another club, .......where he might possibly even receive an envelope containing his share of the saved compensation fee.

Which is what I said about 3 days ago 

thanks for coming 

Exactly. The only thing that's changed is everyone's three days more impatient and we're now in a position where we have to do this deal or make an embarrassing climb-down.

Has Evatt ever worked with an Academy? I thought the main aim was to get a manager who could bring young players through?

His style is to play football that involves possession and a pressing game, similar to Citeh, and that would include ALL players buying into it, he expects them to be super-fit and well drilled as well.

We won’t have an under 23 squad next season. We are moving away from that idea and into the Brentford moneyball style operation. Hence Tobias Phoenix being pivotal.

Why would you be embarrassed if barrow cant do the deal?

Some talk that Evatt assistant Atherton might not come, think that would be a major mistake, good management teams come in pairs and one without the other would really concern me.

I would like to think he could easily find another assistant that buys into his ideas.

Not necessarily. I haven’t a clue who Liverpool or City’s number 2 is
