It sounds to me that if we are potentially appointing our new manger on Sunday that he is currently in a job?

Now that would be something, player/manager, maybe to get today's game out of the way

He's attending the game as a scout apparently.

Given that Stoddart has advised that the 7 interviews have been concluded, the manager is set to be announced in the next couple of days, and Armstrong is a 'much better bet' than Tommy Wright despite Blyth's recent statement then yes I'd say heavily linked is the right word. :roll:

Whether it happens or not remains to be seen, but he has been advised by two good sources apparently.

Let's see what happens.

Not sure that even Bertie Bassett would be applying for this massive job. Needs someone with ambition, talent and the backing of the fans once they get here (soon, I hope!)

As for Armstrong, his contract only runs until the end of this season at Blyth and he has done fantastically well with them.

Although they're flying at the moment, I'd love to see him here.

Just googled who is Alun Armstrong & the first thing that came up is a picture of him and Martin Gray teamed up outside a soccer academy in 2012.

If it is him he could always do a MG and bring a couple of players from Blyth

I'd be delighted if it was him.
Tommy Wright - hasn't done well enough at Nuneaton
Chris Hardy- would he have the contacts?
Hignett - poor spell at Pools.

Alun Armstrong - up and coming, done great at Blyth. Flying this year despite a worse team than us on paper, could well have the Boro contacts, well respected, has an academy but is not a surly bugger. Would be well chuffed actually. Unlike the others, there are no question marks for me.

Notwithstanding the fact that he was a very talented footballer. Would be a tremendous asset for bringing on Saunders.

I'd be delighted if it was Armstrong, it certainly would add spice to the game at Blyth in 2 weeks time.

Knowing our luck we'll accidentally appoint the actor Alun Armstrong instead.

Imagine pretending you had sources at the club. You're worse than roadrunner. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Armstrong may or may not be the new manager - but judging by your post history, you're definitely taking a flyer.
