Wellens.....
« on June 22, 2019, 10:37:45 PM by vietaff »
He played today in the Scott Richo tournament and as u can imagine was asked numerous times about the DRFC managers job

His answer was simple, hes Swindon Town Manager and has a great relationship with the chairman....its not down to him
To say is he interested in the DRFC Job its down to DRFC to say they are interested in him.....

Having said that based on how he spoke about where is at the minute i feel he will still be at STFC come the start of the season.

Ps He was class today, its brilliant to watch him close up, however Copps was the Legwnds winner of the Scott Richo tournament this year

Think it's to soon for wellens to manage us if indeed he ever wants to.

But good luck to him at Swindon

I think its highly unlikely that we would be making an approach for him, I dont think he left on the best terms with the club the second time around.

I hope he does well at Swindon as I really enjoyed watching him as a player, especially that first spell. Ill always remember him fondly for that.

Class from Wellens but only the stance of a man with respect for the club who took him on and its supporters.

Some very apt quotes in there:

"Wellens said: I wanted loyalty off of some players towards the end of last season. And I think itd be wrong of me not to show that loyalty back.

Im starting to build my own team now, which is difficult to get.

Itd be wrong of me to walk away at the first opportunity. If I was asked would I like to manage Doncaster Rovers? yes, I would."

Happy to have him back one day if the stars align and he does well at Swindon. Always liked Richie to be honest.

Always had him down as a Roy Keane type figure. All full of passion and energy as a player and scant time for other players not as good or committed. Having to motivate sometimes quite crap players as a manager will be a challenge given his own very high standards. Not sure Keane had it in him to realise 95pc of players he would have to manage would be half the player he was.

Funny you should say that. A journalist has just said Roy Keanes position at Forest is in doubt as he wants to pursue management!

Thanks Richie for putting me and hopefully lots of other short sighted people out of their misery by ruling yourself out. 
Im sure that we will soon have numerous threads wanting other ex players but we will have to live with that.  Once again thank you

Who would have thought it Wellens the diplomat.

If that is not a dig at GM I don't know what is.

Just like Copps - quality individual.

Exactly
For all the people who were adamant we shouldnt have heard anything from McCann during the week.
This is exactly what we were hoping for, once it didnt come it was apparent he was off

 Now, if McCann was half the man Richie Wellens obviously is, then we could have all backed him to the hilt.

Great player for us and part of that wonderful midfield. And a born winner!

Wellens also said "if you get Flitcroft you're f##cked"

Flitcroft couldnt get Mansfield promoted with a big budget for that league. No way he will be the new manager.

I've seen every Swindon game since Wellens took charge in November. He had the January transfer window,brought in about 5 players,and Swindon  were awful.
Swindon fans wouldnt be disappointed to lose him,they think he f##ked it up.

They were expected to be top 7
I would call that under achieving. I think the above phrase is a bit harsh.
Would be an apt phrase for DF getting us relegated from 7th position on 3rd Jan.

Oh crikey i hope i haven’t opened a can of worms on that one.
Please don’t reply Dickos as i know what you think about DF.
Thanks.
