There seem to be a few posts criticising Paul Hurst and John Fenty for not making statements clarifying the situation, and making all sorts of inferences as a result (e.g. that this means Paul Hurst wants to leave, has been in secret negotiations, that the Club's 'no approach received' statement is untrue, that Chris Doig doing the interview means that Hurst is leaving, etc, etc).

The fact is that we don't know! There could be all sorts of explanations - legal, protocol, good employment practice, or simply that there is nothing sufficiently clear to be able to make any statement.

On the evidence we have I don't know how anyone can draw any inferences about the situation or any individual's motives: until anything else develops and becomes public, Paul Hurst continues to be the manager of GTFC and  - in my opinion - deserves continued support.

If other things come to light subsequently that justify changing opinions about any individual, then so be it - but for now there just isn't any basis for making any inferences about anyone at GTFC!

"Football on 5" have just shown the Shrewsbury match and said talks are ongoing for a new manager, Paul Hurst was the only name mentioned.

I agree DavidB. If it wasnt for forums like the fishy, most of us would be analysing the whole situation to a much lesser degree. Ultimately the fishy is as bad as the media at blowing things out of proportion. Maybe there is something going, maybe there isnt, non of us know, we'll know soon so stop getting all your nickers' in a twist.

I think he's probably tried to manage it in a way that meant that if he couldn't do a deal with Shrewsbury that he could just continue with Town. Don't blame him for trying but don't think he's achieved it and it might be best now if he just moves on quickly and we can do the same. I do think it's a shame as I liked the fact that we were stable and he was just steadily improving us. It might end up being a good thing for the club but that'll depend on the job our non-chairman does in replacing him............As a club we really do manage PR badly don' t we?

Honestly dont know how him doing an interview would change anything. If theres nothing in it and hes staying he'd say it. If there is something in the rumours but nothing finalised he'd also have no option but to say staying because what if it didnt end up getting finalised. Whatever he said the rumours would continue so I honestly dont blame him for thinking whats the point in doing the interview.

Yep. Sounds about right. Thank god for our PR manager...

Throughout this fiasco there's been a little voice in my head (yeah another one) saying "but...Shrewsbury ffs?"

At the moment all we have is the Shrewsbury media stating that Shrewsbury are about to appoint Paul Hurst as their new manager, following a decline from their first chose target and then the media circus gets into full swing.

We know how accurate our own local newspaper and radio station are at reporting these days, reporters sniffing around the internet looking for anything to fuel a story.

Shrewsbury have not said they have spoken to Hurst, but mention its a 3 horse race now and GTFC have confirmed no official approach for Hurst.

We will find out when Shrewsbury finally announce who their new manager is, bet its not Paul.

But I could be wrong
