Well I suppose he's missed all the possible vacancies now..maybe it hasn't turned out quite as expected has it? But a few quid in the bank!

Assume they paid him off £1.5m and he will take a few weeks break until the first casualties start to be announced and then he is front of the queue. Will float straight into a top job - WHU? Everton? Think WBA beckons eventually - failing which he could always get himself up to Vegas and start fighting in a cage. GL MaPP. Think he will become a top manager and we are going to be hearing a lot about him for a long time. Wonder if Sean Derry hadnt come if he would have come back as joint manager with KR

A minute later saw this - surely not a number two - WBA is a huge rebuilding job. He wont get the blame if it fails or the credit if it succeeds. If he is going to make big money, I think he has to sell himself not as someone who plasters over the holes of clubs seriously restructuring, rather an improver of young men. Wonder if its already done - easy money at a premium to the £500k he was reported as getting at the foxes, but with £1.5m in the bank, I would be thinking about seeing what comes up and doing a Lampard. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sp...ews/michael-appleton-man-become-west-14850314

They have to deal probably 100 million (mainly out) otherwise if they dont go straight back up they will be surely be illiquid. Offloading big time at deep discounts. Also spending money like mad which surely should be looked at as their balance sheet must be a mess. Dont think it would be out of the question to pay off the existing guy and appoint MaPP - They are going to have to write off huge losses on players to reduce the wage bill so may swallow their pride if they think MaPP is the best manager available in - seen stranger things happen! its about whether they believe they can bounce straight back because they are doomed if they don't. The MaPP coming back comment was tongue in cheek. :) It would be a backward move but who for?

Said it at the time he made a mistake leaving here. He still has a flaky reputation. I wonder if he regrets not sticking around for the 4 mill budget last season? I know I do.
Turned down Barnsley job apparently. The suggestion is he will have to start again at Lge 1 level

And Pep did so well with £4M :) lets hope he doesn't re-start in L1

Can't imagine he'll be anywhere but upper championship for his next job. Took a lot of the credit for turning around Leicester's dire start to last season.

Grow the f**k up. He was shafted by Eels.

And we all regret him leaving so Pep Fuckwit was let loose.

Good luck to Appleton.
Really? Trainset Stew and Sartori COULD have completed the takeover but for arguing over a million or so? Charlie told us that £25M was the sum needed to invest for an OUFC takeover and a good shot at Championship football. Yet one year later, Donald finds £40M to buy out Sunderland ? something smells ...

So it was not in the best interests of the club pursuing the Donald/Sartori takeover as they were too far away from a deal. and to evidence why it wasn't in the best interests of the club, Appleton walked away.

[edit: might have been £40M needed to invest including stadium for us, it's a long time ago now]

Not sure why you think he will "float" in a top job, no managerial experience at that level with far better and experienced people around.
Someone will have to take a punt on him to manage in the championship that is the next step for him, there are only 20 managerial jobs in the prem and they are littered with overseas appointments, I can't see Mapp or his like breaking through at that level.

He also told us WE was the dream ticket

roofe was on 4K a week

Mapp would never get us out of l2 playing nice football

That he had nothing to do with the sartori bid

That he single handedly built, saved and run Oufc.

So using the phrase “charlie told us” doesn’t really add much credibility

I can so lets agree to differ :) Think he will be in charge of premiership team within 12m
