It's certainly become a strange situation and for Doig to openly say nobody at the club has spoken to them is bizarre.
Surely somebody on the board should come out and clarify the situation. It's a shame that before we actually know anything a lot of people are turning on Hurst, he may not have done anything wrong and he might not have any interest in going, but if someone was trying to give you another job you would be a fool not to have a chat with them. What we don't know is whether he has had any contact with Shrewsbury.

Interesting comments from Shrewsbury fans on various sites / forums saying the club have no ambition and the chairman is tight ....I can see why he's stalled his decision if it is the case

Shrewsbury Chief Executive Brian Caldwell, "It's coming close to the deadline of giving up on the first option."


Shrewsbury Chief Executive Brian Caldwell refused to confirm if Hurst was the man they were after, or who his other two short-listed candidates were. However, he did state that his club were specifically targeting one individual, with the other two on his shortlist being left aside for now. He said though that there was a deadline in terms of their negotiations with their primary target, and if that deadline passed, they would move on to others on the shortlist:

"It's coming close to the deadline of giving up on first option. If we don't get one then we need somebody in. You saw from the performance today and how it panned out and the draining on the players. We're all aware and all as frustrated as the supporters. We totally understand where everyone's coming from. I can't name names or go any further, it wouldn't be fair. You've got to keep your options open. We're looking at a couple of options just now - if one doesn't come off then we go the other way. There'll be no Sunday off or Saturday night either. We're in the situation that we need to get somebody in as quick as possible. It's just over two weeks but it feels like two months and everybody feels the same."

Quoted from Ipswin


His performance at Wembley was a disgrace (but of course no one was allowed to criticise him as he had just scraped us to a promotion) far better if he had simply looked smug and self-satisfied at having proved the doubters wrong



Someone is a little bitter!

I find it hard to believe that there has been so much " jumping to conclusions" and " reading between the lines " on this subject ( although having been a poster for some time on here I shouldn't be surprised).
JF came our with a statement saying that there had been no official approach from Shrewsbury. You either believe him or say he is lying.
Shrewsbury football club have not ( at least to my knowledge ) stated that PH is a potential target to be their manager. They have mentioned that there are three people they have approached.
A story appears in the Shrewsbury area press naming PH but there are no official statements to back this up. The same applies to the story in their local BBC outlet.
It would seem that some on here expect to be privy to and informed of every stage of this situation, probably even wanting hourly updates!
GTFC can do no more than the statement that JF came out with.
As far as Doigy doing the post match interview then that could be for several reasons, none of which really need to be explained to the fans. He may have come across as a bit dull and downbeat, so what. Not everybody is capable of being interviewed in a bright , dynamic manner and in fact some people ( yours truly ) hates being interviewed and put on the spot. He said that all he knew about the situation as regards Shrewsbury was what he picked up from social media and I believe him. It's not as if he would be privy to every conversation that takes place at BP. It's also quite possible that if an illegal approach had been made to PH then PH wouldn't have informed him anyway!

Hurst could have just said I am not interested in going to Shrewsbury or words to that effect,

Exactly what I said earlier, or media speculation without any substance to back-up their claim.

Exactly. You either join in the discussion and state that you believe him, and jump to a conclusion, or believe he is telling an un-truth, and jump to the alternative conclusion and discuss your thoughts on a forum. Add in to the mix Chis Doig's ' I'm in the dark' comment and we're left wondering if he also is genuine or spinning another untruth, you can't be too surprised at the fallout all of this has created.
