It appears that every passing hour brings another slew of bad news our way. Amber Nectar is reliably informed that Billy Davies is to be City’s new manager, while Robert Koren is likely to rejoin Nigel Pearson by signing for Leicester.
Davies was sacked eleven months ago by Nottingham Forest after complaining about a lack of transfer funds, something he’d probably be advised to avoid if he really is to be the new City boss. It’s not easy to imagine his appointment being a popular one in the aftermath of a local hero’s removal.
Meanwhile, the potential loss of City’s 2011/12 Player of the Season to Championship rivals is simply awful news, however great the fee – at this level, he is simply irreplaceable. Let’s hope the Allams remember they’d promised not to deal with Leicester any more when Pearson left last November.
What a total shambles.
