Looks like Brady as manager with Atkins director of football according to Mark Webber this morning.

Not sure how that will work with the new footballing brand/philosophy that is proposed to run through all the clubs teams. Maybe Atkins has mellowed in his older years, and became a fan of 'total football'!  Grin

If this is true I'll be very happy. Atko is still one of my favourite managers and he knew how to get the best out of the resources he had available at the time. He's spent most of the time since he left us scouting for bigger sides, so you have to assume he reported more back to them than "I'd sign their number 9, he's fookin massive and will kick anyone near him!"

He's been around forever, has loads of contacts and an affinity with the club.

Hmm, Atko, Brady, Sammo, Rico, Razor... what a line up of legends! Hopefully they'll get Smudger in as a striking coach and sign Bayo and we'll have the full set!! Grin

I keep hearing this trotted out but do you have any evidence?

All I’ve heard put forward is:

‘KC mentioned good housekeeping’
As there has virtually been zero match day income this season and no teams have gone bust it looks like most if not all teams have practiced ‘good housekeeping’ because of COVID and reduced their budget.
‘KC said he missed out on a lot of key targets’
There is always going to be big competition for the most sort after players and most clubs will miss out on many main targets. Morton & Wharton were 2 key targets which we missed out on because of Appleton’s links with WBA and the other wanting to fight for his place at his parent club. We later found out Miller & Edmondson were another 2 key targets who we were able to sign at Christmas, both have been as poor as the rest of the squad and just prove this summers recruitment process was poor.
‘Look how bad the squad is’
This could be just poor recruitment. We will finish above Bristol Rovers and Swindon so do people feel these these two teams also have lower budgets than the more logical options of Accrington, Crewe Rochdale & Wimbledon?


Our budget was 1.9 million. I know this to be true because GPC posted this to be the case recently and he's seldom wrong.
Now all we need are similarly clued up posters on each of the other 23 clubs fan sites to post their own figures and all the speculation can cease.

please at least try and read what’s out there before posting!

You are right I hadn’t actually read the article in the Chron & Echo with James Whiting. Unless anyone is accusing the club of lying I guess the issue of whether we had a bottom for budget has been resolved!.

Not sure what constitutes a great DOF these days but forgot that Atkins is mid 60's now (where does the time go?!) and seems to be scouting for Wolves after time at Everton and Villa. He is one of the many in the background who will find a role in the game until he calls it a day. I'm sure he's built a tidy pension pot.

I agree, the football might not always have been pretty but the team morale was always high and they fought for everything. Could do with Woody coming back as goalkeeping coach and Heggsy teaching them how to fight!!

Love the story about when Heggsy came in for talks and someone told Big John Gayle "his mate from Wembley" was in reception (they'd had a scrap in the tunnel, apparently!). A few minutes later, once they'd been separated, a bloodied and dishevelled Heggsy said to Atko "I take it you don't want me anymore?", to which Atko replied "Someone who'll take on John Gayle? You'll do for me, lad!" (or words to those effects) Grin
