In football we all know the vote of confidence is a ‘KISS OF DEATH’ for any manager.
So the Daily Star yesterday must have shook them up as the Sun now has direct quotes
A club source said: “There is no foundation to this. The club believes in continuity. We are putting in foundations on which to move the club forward. Alex remains an integral part of that.”
Now to anyone this is a vote of confidence. The Source is without question Paul Faulkner as others have been given this news this week (you may know who they are – MYSTERYMAN for example posted that on here within minutes of the STAR story going up).
So this is Good News because normally the club would refuse to comment on speculation. They felt a vote of confidence was now needed and of course the looming visit of MON is not exactly helpful to Mcleish at all. If normal football practice carries on through then within a few days of the season ending he will be gone.
Lets hang hope on that.
