Please don’t go!
May 23, 2010
Well, there’s not too much I can say about Notts right now, so this will be a short post. I’m sure I’m not alone with my fingers and toes crossed in hope that Steve Cotterill signs on the dotted line.
The man who guided Notts to the League Two title was linked to Coventry before they appointed Aidy Boothroyd, and has now been lined up by both Plymouth and Portsmouth, if the papers are to believed. Now, I know Portsmouth will be in the Championship next year, which might appeal to him, but a move to Plymouth will be a strange one. They have been relegated to League One, and have a major rebuilding project on their hands.
Still, eventually it is Cotterill’s choice. We knew it was a short term deal when he came in, but it would seem Ray Trew has offered him a decent contract and an ambitious budget for the new year. I’m desperate for him to take it.
In other Notts news, the players released a couple of weeks back didn’t contain any major shocks, although it was disappointing to lose Delroy Facey (yes Notts fans, I actually mean it!) I do hope that the manager situation is sorted by this time next week so we can get about building up our squad. Fingers crossed for some more exciting signings if Mr Trew’s vision of another promotion is to come true.
Either way, my season ticket has been ordered, so roll on August!
