I asked this before...................
What is the rush to get a manager on board?
There is nothing on the immediate schedule that requires having a manager.
Anything on the schedule has been done by scouts/player development and the FO.
There is nothing that a new manager can add to the FA signings. Please do not say get ready for ST if he can not do that from Dec to Feb than an extra few weeks are not going to help. And if he can't I don't want him.
The only answer I got was that the only thing that a new manager can add is a name that may or may not help sign a FA.
