Apparently announced yesterday but just seen it mentioned on Football Focus. Good move for him but maybe the bubble has burst there now the Cowley's have gone.

Our bubble won't burst whilst we have our chairman, Most fans seem happy with Michael Appleton, especially as we have a team now that is designed to play football and he clearly gets his teams to keep it on the deck so it suits the personnel we have with Morrell, Payne, Andrade and Walker etc. Others interviewed were more direct and we don't want to go back to that - I am sure it grates on some of your fans as you are clearly a long ball team now as opposed to the football I saw you play in the late 80's.

Plus we paid very little to get him, so the near 2 million compensation we got for both Cowleys will help, as this league is completely different and I am surprised by the step up in quality, so we can splash in Jan to make sure we stay in this league.

I’m surprised your so confident (smug) about your chairman as he doesn’t actually kick a ball.

It’s also interesting that your tone has changed from storming L1 to staying in it.

I am confident that the club is in safe hands - Thats all I meant, Appleton has been given a four year deal, our chairman said he wants to go higher up the football pyramid, so why not be confident.

As for storming it, We have started okay, but the quality differnce is enormous. I don't think I have ever said we would storm it, I was always happy to finish 5th bottom. You can't change a whole team in 1 or 2 windows. Plus our two best players in Morell and Walker we don't own.

Maybe, just maybe, this will spell the end of the constant swooning over them for the time being?  Football is cyclical; their recent success will end and all the talk about how they're going to solidify a place in the Championship will look a bit ridiculous.  They don't represent a utopian vision for how every club should be run.

Just to point out Appleton isn't actually in charge today, he's in the stands watching.
