Old Man AndrewsHoundStranded JLow on the Elm Park Royals podcast stating that we did approach one manager who turned us down so may well be that we had a #1 target and when we couldn't get him the board decided the best approach was to give it to someone already at the club to avoid a lengthy delay in appointing someone - certainly may explain why Bowen just has an initial scope of til the end of the season - if he does very well, he may get a new deal else they may well go back in for whoever the #1 target was.
Indeed, the target may have made it clear he has an interest but not interested until the summer.
Saw that. Been nice for JLow to have named names just for our interests sake
Wonder if it was Hughes - thought JLow hinted at him originally
There is of course the chance JLow is completely makign up this information.
I would lean towards Hughes if it is true though. Bowen probably would have put him forward and either the club wouldn't pay him enough or give him a big enough transfer budget.
Cracking start to his ever informative lunchtime Q&A session too. Always good to start a response to a question with "Who knows".
