Rebuttal by club means nothing (for the third time this season), it just means that the gentlemans route has been blocked off. Evans' rebuttal is the only thing that counts.

There's never an approach on a Monday or Thursday when Evans has an interview so we can just ask him outright.

Got to say though, I don't see anything for him at Gillingham

Ben Superstag wrote:'Yes, but it's a wonderful club, with wonderful supporters who are in a false position. I've had many good battles with Gillingham down the years and you know what they're about, you know what they're going to give you. Wonderful club. Wonderful passionate fans. Fantastic owner. When I was Leeds United manager Alex Ferguson said to me, look at Gillingham, and you don't win everything he has won without knowing a thing or two. At Rotherham I had a great time at Gillingham, it's a wonderful club with wonderful supporters. Fantastic owner. I'm flattered to be linked with such a wonderful club, with wonderful supporters.'

Steve's thoughts on the approach.


Very good. I thought it was Stevie for the moment :lol: :lol:

I'm sure Stevie will try and use the situation to secure a larger salary, longer contract, larger budget or all three! :lol:

This is tedious every time a vacancy comes up and I hope it doesn't distract our players.

For someone who some people think has no ability and is universally hated, Evans is certainly in demand.

If he wants to go let him, as long as we get the full compensation. Then get the Accy manager signed up.

If he extracts more budget then fair play.

He is in demand and i hope he signs a new contract with us. He has my unrivalled support.

As for Gillingham, they are in a right pickle with no money and legal proceedings against them. Why would he want that? Its a worse option than Swindon was.

It's the rollercoaster of football, if the approach had taken place 6 days ago half of Stagsnet would have driven him to Gillingham.

The common denominator in all 3 approaches this year, I'll count Charlton in with Swindon and Gillingham, is that they all have dodgy owners who are trying to appease the supporters. Haslam would have approached Evans too, and would have had no intention of landing him. Why not approach a big manager at a club smaller than you, who you have no chance of getting?

If Evans went at this stage in the project, I would have NIL respect for him.

We have to get used to this. Whether its a serious approach or not... All we can do is keep rejecting them. If Evans turns round and asks to go then we let him.

No point getting all bent out of shape.

If i was JR and Evans tried to use this to get more money (not that i think he will), id laugh and tell him to get on with his job.

Evans will have spoken to them already. Why would a club make an official approach without at least sounding him out? In fact, I’d guess Evans has been encouraging it. It’s win win win for him. Name in the press, puts him in a strong posistion for extra January funds, or he gets a job in a higher division.

Higher division for how long? They're skint and in the relo's. Evans wont want a relegation.

He will use it to extract a bit of cash though.

Agree with Marky Marks sentiments - would be good to hear Evans he's committed. He's not been good at that so far

If he wants to go let him , and I also agreed that if he does he deserves no respect proving his detractors right.

Having said that I want him to stay , think hes done a good job so far and will get us promoted.

But he must be, Rainworth game finished so surely on the way home? :lol:

In all seriousness though had this with Swindon he didn't leave.

Its all about timing, he has his squad here and is working towards something. If the season had just finished, he had time and an offer of a large budget to build a fresh squad elsewhere then the chance of him leaving would be greatly increased.
