    Is there any rumours as to who the set-piece guy you're getting in is? I know it's being held up by a work permit issue but I only know 1 foreign set-piece guy who's not already working in the PL and he's told me it's not him!

    Not a scooby, I’m sure someone on the FoxesTalk forum will know.

    As usual it’s been a triumph of planning and logistics, like with the head of recruitment we’ve just brought in from Soton who had a clause saying he couldn’t start working for another club until after the summer window :confused:

    "Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers, 49, is due an eight-figure compensation package if he is sacked following the club's worst start to a season since 1983. (Mail)"

    I suspect not....
    £1000 and then another £1000 ?

    £20mil apparently.

    Twenty ******* million ******* quid.

    Where is the incentive to start doing his job properly? We’re absolutely ****ed.

    Plenty of incentive to try your best to get sacked when you're bored and want a new well-paid challenge with £20m deposited in your bank account. I wonder if AV would be interested if he suddenly came available and Stevie eh-eh-eh G got the bullet ?

    Was intrigued so had a look on the set-piece coach thread, nobody seems to have a name (not least publicly). Bizarre as I tried to get in at Leicester (as felt they were the perfect club to benefit from such a specialist and were a club without one) via Mladen numerous times and emailed the DoF at the start of the season to see if I could have a chat and never had any luck.

    Did you contact Jon Rudkin? As far as I can tell his role mostly involves polishing his spectacles and thinking about what he’ll cook for dinner.

    There probably is no new set piece coach. It’ll just be Kolo Toure wearing a hat and a fake moustache.

    Apparently they’ve asked to speak to Potter.

    Apparently he has a £16m release clause so purely down to potter if he wants it.

    He might want it given Ashworth was taken from Brighton by the Saudis.

    I have it on good authority that Chelsea recently enquired to Newcastle about Ashworths availability (and were told were to shove it)

    Please no. A very good manager at a nice club.

    Hope Potter doesn't go there. He could do and probably will do better

    Very easy.
    Utterly happy, "penalty incoming, thank you very much" and...

    ...apoplectic after that VAR decision. "Ref, you complete wa****r!"

    It's only right after that appalling decision, we should all stand together with our Geordie friends: #prayforthetoon

    There isn't too much better than Chelsea to be fair. Liverpool, MU, Citeh ? He will be sacked within 2 years but how far can he really expect to take Brighton ? "Best of the Rest"? He won't manage Brighton for the rest of his managerial career. Unless he is waiting for the England job but if so he needs to be sure he's still over-performing with Brighton when Southgate moves on.....

    When you think how much difference a good manager can make, it's mad how manager compo fees absolutely pale in comparison with player transfer fees

    Surely he can do better than Farnborough Town ? He has a decent CV.

    Well that's enough for me to slap £2 on Poch.

    I just don't believe a billionaire will hire someone called Graham Potter over the far more exotic sounding Mauricio Pochettino.

    I've been suspended by the Geordies after I pointed this out. I was very rudely informed that my comments on her lack of facial expression was:

    So she looks like that because of Huntington's and not multiple aesthetic surgical interventions and/or Botox jabs.

    You monster.

    Busy bloke - he also directed, the excellent, Midsommar. You'd better really up your game @reids like him if you want to be taken seriously.
