We must hope it's Potter then for the armchair and sofa fans to once again grace Odsal with their presence.

You do know it isn't Harry...?

I wish it was then he could magic us a nice 30,000 all seater stadium and fill it every game for us.

According to the T&A Potter is favourite. he would be my preferred choice. I know Saints fans aren't happy with his style play, but his track record with Catalans and Saints is pretty good. He has a history with the Bulls as well, so again, it's another former assistant getting the top job. Although in a more circuitous way than usual.

You are very welcome to McDermott, he has been a disaster for Harlequins. We have had a season and a half of misery, and McDermott still does not have a clue how to get out of it. In a media savvy market like London you actually need a communicator, which he most definitely is not. We would prefer someone to talk the club up as opposed to being "honest".

A word of warning - do not under any circumstances approach him after a game even when you've won - he will be rude and abusive.

Maybe slightly more circuitous but not that much, remember Nobby spent time at Wakefield and IIRC a year in Aussie doing coaching with (Jack?) Gibson before coming back, and Macca also did a stint at Wakey before moving to Hudds and only then coming back to Odsal, so neither of those were exactly seamless!

Brian McD apparently claimed on BBC Radio London yesterday evening that he is staying put in London.

Posted on another forum by what I would regard as a decent source.

There seems to be a consensus forming around the idea that the club is in talks with Potter (presumably about money), given that he seemingly has no other firm plans, and that Brian would cost a fee as he still has year's contract at Quins (assuming he would be prepared to leave anyway), this would seem to be the most likely scenario.

You are probabaly right here. I can quite understand why David Hughes would be after a fee bearing in mind the
money he is losing as a matter of course. Honest enough to admit I hoped Mc would be off though.
Now this decision has been made though its a case of getting on with it.
I live in hope rather than expectation though.

Tell us all something we already knew I hear you cry.

So to what do I think about ex Bradford player McDermott coming back to Odsal, well he's done a decent job at Harlequins with limited resources.

He's a grafter who can work well in difficult times which we now face at Odsal and to boot he is probably the best English candidate out of the names that were thrown around last month and that is what we need to take the club forward.

The only problem I forsee is that in Brian McDermott we have a signing that is unlikely to excite the fans as an appointment of being made head coach at Odsal.

I just hope he brings in James Lowes back as his assistant.

Looks like your wrong for a change mick.. biggrin.gif

So which week was the original poster referring to?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Latest from Ryan Duckett on Radio Leeds 16:30 news 13/7: "The process of appointing the new coach is almost at an end and we hope to be making an announcement in from a couple of days to a week".

So still a bit open ended then!
