Postby Funkydrummer » Fri Sep 06, 2019 12:18 pm

Looks to be a starter if this is to be believed.

Unlike the tabloids, the BBC don’t tend to run with stories like this without a lot more substantial info.

Adkins is a bit of a weird entity for me, back to back promotions and massive success for two seasons at Southampton and has faded into obscurity.

Decent manager Adkins, led Scunthorpe to 2 promotions from League One to the Championship 2nd time he kept them up. Back to back promotions at Southampton. Little chance at Reading and did well last year with Hull to steady the ship.

Gary Monk expected to be named new boss of Sheffield Wednesday

Will people ever learn - especially as it is only weeks since all the allegations from 3 former clubs emerged

I'm surprised Chris Hughton is still without a job - He's be a perfect fit for a big club like Sheffield Wednesday

Adkins slipping away in the betting for Huddersfield with Neil Harris (Millwall) in the reckoning.

Neil Harris is Mr Millwall isn't he? Either something rotten in the den or (relatively) massive money on offer.

Huddersfield Examiner, who tend to know what’s going on at the football club, are suggesting there hasn’t been an approach for Adkins.

Crowley, who turned it down a few days ago, is odds on favourite again.

Rumour has it he turned it down as he thought he was getting the Sheff Weds job then they appointed Monk. Would explain Huddersfield offering it him again

He did an interview on TV and said he'd turned it down, then when he didn't get the Sheffield Wednesday job he spoke about how much he'd built at Lincoln and didn't want to walk away from it, probably thinking he'd blown his Huddersfield chances.

Not sure that's such a great move for him really. Huddersfield are a team on a downward trajectory whereas Lincoln are going in the opposite direction.

Hasn't Cowley been criticised about the style of play that Lincoln play?

I know Lincoln were very physical against us in the cup game and yes I will say it that they were a dirty team

Great to see an young English manager get a chance at moving up the ladder. Huddersfield are well supported and funded, with a great stadium and training facilities. I hope he does well.
