Signs are that Molby's on his way to Hull
It's looking 99.99% certain now that Our Lord, Jan Molby, will become the new manager at Hull City within the next 24hrs.
The news in today's Express & Star, which was more or less confirmed by the official website, tells us that their sources on Humberside are certain that Jan is the man who will replace Brian Little at Boothferry Park in the very near future.
The club themselves are saying that if the move goes through in the next 24 hours then Gary Barnett will be in charge for tomorrow's vital Third Division clash at Cheltenham.
Talk about brilliant timing!
They also seem to be discussing a compensation payment already by saying that the two and a bit years remaining on Molby's Aggborough deal may delay the matter being finalised immediately.
According to newspapers and websites on Humberside Adam Pearson, chairman of City, has said that Jan Molby is on his list along with Steve Coppell, currently at Brentford, and Micky Adams, Leicester City.
Adams has already talked himself out of the job by saying that he wants to stay at Filbert Street and there is no real reason for Coppel to go there when his side are third from top of the Second Division and heading for the First.
The Hull website Amber Nectar have also said that although Harriers are handily placed for an assault on the top seven with the same number of points as City, Jan would be tempted to go there despite his achievements at Aggborough.
They also said that City have considerably more potential than the Harriers, but lets face it Hull have probably got more potential than most teams in the First anyway, with the exception of Wolves, Man City, Blues and the Baggies.
They also said that Jan has established a reputation for producing skilful, determined and organised teams with limited funds, and if appointed would hopefully bring those sorely-lacking features to City's squad.
They say bad news comes in threes and it certainly has at Aggie in recent weeks.
First the news of Lionel Newton's resignation, then the ITV Digital deal (have they paid for their boards around the ground?) and now this.
I think tomorrow could be a bit embarrassing at Cheltenham.
