Thanks but why is he?
Is it normal to get a red cross for asking a question?

If people put money on him then the odds go down therefore you can assume more money has been placed on him rather than anyone else. Whether that’s people in the know or not remains to be seen.

Ah got it thanks alot
Red cards all over the place now, how fabulous.
I guess it's because they can't answer the question 😉

How it works is......

1 - JF put £10 on a candidate, the bookies make him favorite.

2 - JF looks at The Fishy to see what we think.

3 - If we are favorable he gets the job, if not he puts £10 on another who then becomes favorite.

4- Back to No. 2

[This could take weeks]  ;D ;D ;D

It's likely that someone stuck £20 on him.

There will be no money in this new manager market. Let's be honest — the only people who will bet on this market are Grimsby fans, and even then... how many of us have actually placed a bet??!!

Bookies won't make any money from this — it's probably not even worth them doing it. The only reason they do is so they get their brand mentioned in news articles.

At the odds being offered, I wouldn't touch anything with a bargepole unless you were incredibly well informed! Bookies aren't. They reflect the money in the market. They'll have no inside knowledge for something so low down their priorities.

Of course they will, and even if they didnt, they get free publicity for their profession.
Be better if we all put our money into buying GTFC shares instead !!!!

Sorry will get my coat.

Seems a bit of a WILDcard to me especially as they are in free fall and not won in 5

Just out of interest, are there shares available to buy or had Mr Fenty got them all tied up.

As per other threads it’s very easy to buy GTFC shares.

You never know - I heard of someone who just today, saw Princess Margaret being escorted by police in Tottenham Court Road.

How could that be?  8)
