How comfy is his job at Sky?

AVB'll need his own assistant and we could use him to transition the players from Harry's motto of 'You're all triffic and can play anywhere' to AVB's more strict 'I'll drop you if I feel like it you prick'. Think Wilkins could be that man.

Or is anyone else rumoured to be his assistant?

Wee bit premature to start picking an assistant for AVB when it's nowhere near certain that he's even in contention for the job, much less appointed, isn't it?

AVB will be our next manager. Really can't see anyone else getting it anymore.

I would seriously hate life if Butch is made assistant.
He's a man who knows his stuff. Chelsea's downfall after he was sacked could have been more than coincidence. Would also had to the backroom stuff that would basically be 'Fuck You Roman F.C.'

You may be right, but a little presumptious.

Omar, no need to be insultingly offensive, my good man. :)

I think he is a great shout, but he is Chelsea through and through. If he was asked and took the role though I would be very happy cause I think he was a major influence when it was all going well over there

Like if we got in Tony Adams.
Try reading his autobiography - "Addicted". A gooner mate of mine lent it to me and it is surprisingly honest, open and entertaining.

I appreciate what you are saying but fuck me, we could do with a Tony Adams...... especially with Ledders on his last legs.

I see, so that would balance it out because it wasn't going too well when AVB was over there.

Please let me wake up.

Well that's not actually what I said is it. It's not a case of balancing anything out is it. We all have opinions on who would do well or not. I happen to think AVB will do ok, he I would hope will have spoken with levy at length about all the problems he faced at Chelsea and we would therefore be under no illusions as to what we are getting, and the way he will run things.I think ray Wilkins would be the equivilant of good cop and I think he knows his stuff as well but as i said he is a chelsea man so i could see him showing loyalty to them in any case. Of course it is all pie in the sky and we will wait and see who comes in.

Would be very happy with this outcome.

A good cop/cuddly figure with the players, but who is intellectual enough to 'get' AVB.

Unless people can't see beyond the Chelsea connection, I'm not sure what problem they have with Wilkins. I think he's an intelligent and thoroughly nice individual. My opinion of him skyrocketed during our CL run, when he commentated our games..
