Taylor: it's not a done deal

Any of the Addickted who have been rehearsing their chants of 'Peter Taylor's Barmy Army' may have been a little premature.

Our new general manager (football), Andrew Mills, has denied mounting speculation that Hull City’s Peter Taylor has already been handed the job of succeeding Alan Curbishley with Ray Wilkins as his assistant. However, Mills would not deny that the former Dover boss was on the short list.

There has been speculation that Taylor’s chances have been strengthened by the fact that his agent, Billy Jennings, once employed Mr Mills who is a former director of Premiership Management plc, a leading football agency.

One press report has Mick McCarthy being interviewed today (lives locally) while odds on Preston's Billy Davies have shortened to 3-1. This seems strange as it appears that he is going to Hearts while he has also been interviewed by Derby County. All this goes to show is that good managers are in short supply and there is stiff competition for them.
