    Yeah that's what I originally thought. Makes sense for it to be this way around. Walsh as Head of recruitment and then a new DOF.

    Pretty easy to guess that he isn't ITK.

    It's all right folks stand down, it's in hand, due to start 3rd Feb. That's what usually happens and coincides with our urgency on transfers.

    I have it on good authority we have Summers ins and out pretty much sorted already due to Ralph’s influence in Europe.
    Despite his falling out with Leipzig over his contact he is still well in there.
    Leipzig management don’t want any leavers going to potentials rivals either.
    Next in French goalkeeper. Best I can do I’m afraid. At Staplewood at the moment.
    Hoijburg Left Back due to “issues” with Bertrand.
    Hayden Ian Mullins
    - Was apparently replacing Jaidi.

    His morale is low and he’s struggling with Ralph’s tough but fair coaching techniques. Targett staying too.
    Yeah, Manji's been spouting nonsense for months now guys...

    Now Zeljko Buvac would be very good news as an assistant , but we still need someone to focus on the transfers , unless Ralph takes that on board

    Answer - they improved.

    Ralph needs an assistant and if he trusts Zeljko then he gets my vote.

    Just wondering how we have so many experts on coaching ability on here.

    K Davis, Eric Black etc sh1te and to blame for poor form.

    But as soon as someone is mentioned, 'oooooh, he's good' - an assumption, I assume, or genuinely hours of watching how they train their respective clubs players?

    .... and when you say you put insurance bets on Pompey to get promoted each year you only bet with monopoly money.

    I may be a bit of a cynic, my old fat friend, but I think that you are full of s hyte.

    As someone said before, why put a timeline on an appointment being made if we aren't sure we can keep to it - just makes us look clueless and unprofessional.

    Don’t recall the club saying any deadline, the deadlines have come from press stories and “ITK” people on here

  39. #389

    Manji might not always be right but gave the early steer on Hasenhuttl's appointment long before anyone else (and the best others could come up was nudge-wink references about Flores). Similarly Hojbjerg at left back when Bertrand was available - yes, that did happen.

    At the end of the day it's gossip and there are no guarantees that things will pan out that way, and should be treated that information is being given in good faith. Conversely we have had the odd fake ITK and they get found out pretty quickly.

    The Telegraph piece talked about the timeline, and has basically been the press department's mouthpiece before. Friendly journalist/cut and paste job

    As a club we are experts at missing deadlines. We are still yet to announce the elusive five pledges which were literally on Kruger’s desk awaiting sign off in January 2018, for implementing from February 2018.

    A culture of delays and failure has been allowed to permeate through the club and I pinpoint the disastrous launch of the five pledges as the start of the erosion.

    It still wasn’t an official announcement from the club. However, things change. Some things change. People change their minds. Believe things when they happen and you won’t be disappointed, unless you don’t like the announcement of course!

    Have to admit a name I'll have to go off and Google, best to ignore the subsequent comments here.

    Oh, and in support of Jonnyboy, look up fiat currency.

    Or look at it another way, we've not got an assistant manager or DoF and there seems to be no urgency to either being appointed - otherwise they would be there already. Strikes me as a move to make the club lean ready for a sale - make the books look as good as possible

    Kitzbichler was appointed as opposition analyst / first team assistant coach. Which replaces Rohls position.

    Fair enough, from the job title and his background as an analyst I'd assumed he was just a part of the coaching team rather than being Ralph's number 2...

    On the face of it Buvac would be a shrewd appointment, especially as he may have the capacity to take over from Ralph. Anyone see the Red Bull takeover rumour on Instagram? I think that would be good, potentially. Red Bull Saints. Can you imagine the outcry (not from me)

    Ha, god yeah. RB Saints. I mean personally I don't think it's a world away from all the shirt sponsors, stadium sponsors and endless gambling promotion. Football has little soul left anyway.

    If it's the choice between being better run and funded and competing better as Leipzig and Salzburg have done then I'm alright with it. So long as no one makes me drink red bull.

    Totally agree. Or Vodka Red Bulls...

    I'd take the Red Bull branding if we were as ambitious and well run as Leipzig.
