Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott is on Hull City’s shortlist over their vacant manager’s post, it emerged today.
Have your say
I hope Greg decides to stay and finish the job. Of course this speculation also depends of where he is in the pecking order at Hull and he may not get far in the interview process with Billy Davis, apparently the odds on favourite.
I think the situation raises two pertinent issues: what are the board prepared to do/ able to do to keep Greg. A transfer kitty and a new contract may well be the minimum.
But even if the worst case should happen and Greg leaves I hope and feel sure he will act in an ethical and honourable way and not seek to cherry pick from the eight existing first teamers who have contracts on the table. I have no doubt at all that even though the players are 'free agents' any such diluting of the first team squad would cast a sour taste on Greg's legacy. I realise the players are in a sitution where they can test the market and I imagine one or two will do so.
I wish we were a richer club who could sign up players much earlier and avoid this process.
Didn't anyone see it coming?
Oh and I see Robeiro from ?Bristol City and Adam Clayton from Leeds are now free agents. Wish you could say that for James Taverier.
Greg & kav, get your coats , the car is running i,ll drop you both at the KC. Don,t mention it , you,re welcome !.. happy days.
no one cares really, only the 3 or 4 thousand who turn up to watch lets face it is a poor standard of footy,, far better going shopping with the misses.
