Be a couple of days yet I would have thought? Yesterday was only putting a recommendation to the board. Contracts to put together, press briefings to organise etc first?

Seems most likely as there is no hint of the club calling a press conference today.

Unlike last season when Talksport’s Moose leaked AL before the official announcement there doesn’t seem to be any sort of leak coming out of the club or from the new manager

I thought I read/heard that the decision would be confirmed by the board yesterday and announced today?

Has there not been an announcement that the original announcement is no longer a planned announcement but the new announcement will be an announcement on the announcement as to when an announcement will be announced?

Only in terms of media speculation / assumption. Nothing from the club on specific dates other than the board meeting yesterday.

I’m very relaxed at present, our new manager will be announced as and when and there’s no point getting to stressed about it. As long as he (or she) is the right choice I’m not going to worry when it’s announced.

Today’s announcement will be an announcement that the managers announcement will be announced next week.

This is turning into another joke... but are we even surprised any more?

My firm advice to the club would be not to voluntarily offer time frames, especially for announcements, unless they’re absolutely 100% locked in. Just makes them look incompetent, ruins the trust from fans and ultimately is entirely avoidable.

<Hopes to be proven wrong by announcement tonight>

I'd be happy with this, if true. Although, at 81, the role would be a challenge,as long as she doesn't insist on those irritating goal kicks I think we'd be moving in the right direction.

Again, please show me where the club stated that the new manager would be announced today.

Nobody at the club said it would be announced today. I’d rather they had it 100% confirmed than rush an announcement out for the sake of a few impatient individuals.

Geoff Chapple said "probably" (not definitely) Tuesday here, https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p066w42d

As long as it's Olive, I don't care when it's announced.

I’m pretty sure this is what BFG said in his BBC interview?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p066w42d

Even if it was a “probably”, why put it out there (for fans to excite over) unless it’s 100% set in stone?
