We're had managers away during the season before (I believe) if not definitely pre-season.

Missing away games will be ok as most of the supporters miss them anyway and we wouldn't notice. Very Happy

Jim Baker


I remember Vines missing a couple during our Southern League promotion campaign and one of Bettineli (whose son is playing in goal for Fulham these day, just to make you all feel old) or Swindlehurst (I'm pretty sure it was him) taking over the reigns. Almost certain we thrashed Worcester 4-0 or 4-1 at home when Vines was away - Carl Wilson-Denis hat-trick IIRC!


Are you sure it was Vines?

Billy Smith always used to bugger off a few games into the season, then wondered why he got people's backs up.


Yes was definitely Vines, as that's how Dave Swindlehurst came to the club, to assist, and ended up replacing, Bettinelli.

At the end of the day, why the rush, this is now down time for the players.

I cannot remember, but pre-season does not start until, mid June or begining of July, depending on league etc.

So the club could take all of May to appoint someone and then they would have June to get to know the squad.

yes we miss any signings, but we have very little money to buy anyone, so would we not only look at loanees!

Also note with the U23 side starting, this will be a bigger priority, as this helps negate the having a youth player coming thorugh the ranks, as they could name any of them.


Why the rush? Well, maybe because almost every team has announced their retained/released list and have already started bringing players in - Evans has five through the door already at Mansfield.

We'll probably be left behind and left to pick up the deadwood released by the rest if we don't start making enquiries soon.


The teams in the playoffs must be at a disadvantage then! Evans always brought in players early. With his record, one or two will be successful and the others will have been replaced by the January window!

Holloway made that very point when he rather unexpectedly got Palace into the top flight... he reckoned the other two promoted teams had a crucial few weeks advantage (which in fairness, was a consequential reward for their own endeavours).

He didn't even know what the budget was or what division they were budgeting for, until the final had concluded.

Did he play against us for Sittingbourne..? Shocked

Nicky Forster - has he had a mention yet? - must tick a few of the boxes, He managed Brentford for half a season and I know he has local connections and was even studying at Crawley College a few years back.

The poster still hasn't provided any link or reason why they are saying it though. Hopefully it's just a wind up!

The Anus have Kewell & the gang as a story.. Shocked didn't he have a spell playing in Turkey..?

Quote:
Kewell – who played in two World Cups for Australia – is expected to be unveiled by the League Two club next week.

It will be the 38-year-old’s first job in senior management since calling time on a glittering playing career three years ago which saw him win the Champions League and FA Cup with Liverpool.

Yes he played 3 years for Galataseray, so he will feel at home with the Crawley ultras!
My guess is that a new manager has been agreed upon, whoever that might be. We are waiting for Ziya to fly in and rubber stamp the appointment.

Would be a very left-field appointment, I suspect it would either prove to be utterly catastrophic or a master-stroke.

Would certainly generate more interest in the club in the local area and media.

Seems odd that we have got rid of a successful youth team coach if we are going to replace him with an unsuccessful youth team coach!
