I honestly can't make my mind up about SE. But I firmly believe we would not have a chance of attracting the type of players we have without him. What also impresses me is how early they have signed for us in the transfer window. SE has worked hard to make this happen. Normally we sign players towards the end of the window. Indeed some players have been on trial with other clubs until they filter down to us. Sometimes we find a good player through this method , Pearce for example. But usually we end up with average players.

I was trying to explain this to my old man this morning, don't think I had any success though. He kept bleeting on about their stats not being good enough game time wise so theyre not very good, hence the release of them and the free transfer. Too much premiership viewing I think

The goalposts definitely seem to have been moved but I don't think it was JR who did it. Mez and Andy J seem to be the prime suspects.

But the headline does mention Coventry interested when Mowbray left the blues, not that they have been refused permission to talk to Evans. Post relevant as we didn't know about interest from Coventry

I phoned Steve Evans this morning and the club refused to let me speak to him.

Swindon still havent appointed a manager, and Steve Evans remains the bookies favourite, even after all the signings.

I've mentioned before that the bookies really do not know what they are talking about with regards to League Two.

A mate who works for one of the big bookies told me that they just react to any money going down at all on the next manager markets.

They've currently got Lincoln as the favourites for Promotion now. Genuinely think Lincoln have a bit of a shock coming. Most fans of League 2 teams will know Lincoln won't have an easy time of it, and we know first hand that a good handful of their players aren't up to a promotion challenge in league 2

I don't think the article says Coventry were interested - it says he was linked to the job. Very different things

I dont doubt that fans of lower league clubs are more 'in tune' with the goings on for their club and can on occasion make a few quid but to suggest the billionaire bookies dont know what they're doing is daft.

They react to markets. EG If Steve Evans is favourite for the Swindon job when we all know he isn't going doesn't make the bookies stupid. It's the punters that have backed him.

bookies don't make their money from League Two. They make it from the Premier League. League Two is just incidental.

completely agree. but they still offer markets on football way below league 2.
if it didn't make them money they wouldn't bother.

That's the shame in all of this, I was looking high and low for it too. I'd have had laid the national debt when he was at around 1.30.

The bookies just provide odds based upon the demand, they don't think anything at all. Thinking is the quickest way to lose money at the bookies. The fact that Steve Evans is still favourite doesn't mean they think he is, they have sophisticated probability and algorithms based upon the movement of money.

Evans was apparently on TalkSport last night waxing lyrical about Leeds.
