A sadpie fan contacted me on facebook about a rumour that Hoddle was going to replace Charlie as their manager.
Read this in The Sun today. Had a little giggle to myself on the train.
So they want god on their side as well as money?Originally Posted by DanR
Its not the 1st of April is it? lol
Sven is very driven by money...
Talk to me, Goose.
Its actually true.
He is going to be Director of Football - of course how much time he will spend at Notts is open to debate!
Like Pleat with us at a guess...not a lotOriginally Posted by holidayrep
He will be used as a figure to raise the profile of the club
I look forward to the Nottingham Evening Post stinging Sven with a fake Tracey from Strelley in the Debenhams doorways.
This is a team that couldn't even sign Lee Hughes! Do me a favour!
DanR, you're funny again!Originally Posted by DanR
Sky Sports breaking news are reporting that this is true and a done deal
A nice marketing move by Notts to put bums on seats. Essentially he will pick up a salary just to attend the odd meeting and show his face but its a shrewd move by Notts' new owners.
I doubt it will stop them being crap though - they will need a lot more than Sven to do that.
Its on BBC now
He's fucking useless anyway, they're welcome to him. He achieved wonders with "big budgets" before...
Joking aside, if I was a Notts fan this would seriously worry me.
How do all con men work?
They put up a front to distract what is really going on in the background.
I found this gem on the NEP comments section:
"ur pies r avin a laugh.u will never b as big as us u stupid idiots" - Courtesy of Mark in Stoke.
Can't argue with it can you!

Lock up your wifes and girlfriends
It will last 5 mins.
There is something about this consortium that I feel will stiff Notts somehow.
It just stinks for some reason.
So what you're saying is...Sven is almost as good as Glenn Hoddle, who is England's joint greatest manager EVER.Originally Posted by weasel

He's never been a Director of Football at a 4th division club who don't have a pot to piss in before though. It's unchartered waters for him, a whole new level of challenges.
Would be great fun to see him at Saltergate drinking his half time Bovril, scouting on Jack Lester.
