Taylor odds shorten

51 per cent of Hull City fans now believe that they will lose their manager to Charlton, according to a fans website. It states: 'Peter Taylor has denied applying for the job himself but instead waited to see if Charlton would approach him. It seems that they have and now Pearson and Taylor have both been ready to discuss terms with the club.'

Taylor's last spell managing a Premiership club, Leicester City, was far from a success, but his experience as England Under 21 coach should be a help, particularly in spotting likely signings. In any event, whether it is Taylor or someone else, it would be nice to have a whinge free period last longer than 48 hours.

Phil Parkinson seemed to be favoured at one point, but has been linked with the vacancy at Ipswich. At least we will not be landed with Danny Walden from Whitnash Town who resigned from the hot seat at Acre Road after a bad string of defeats ended with a 3-1 defeat by Christ the King, leading the departing supremo to claim 'It's not the results'.

Remember we will be the only Charlton blog bringing you all the action tomorrow night from the Bescot Stadium where Leamington face Barwell in the final of the Polymac Services League Cup. Reports suggest that the Leicestershire club have so far got 27 fans coming.
