I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Dave Penney has signed as Assistant Manager and that we have kept Graham Coughlan in a newly created post, First Team Coach. At a time when we were again late in paying our tax bill and some players, this appointment was , for me, quite a shock. In Brown and Penney we must have the highest profile (and the most expensive) Management Team in League 2. When you hear that we are also looking to re-sign Nicky Bailey, who would not come cheap (despite it being a ''dream move'' for Nicky), you have to wonder what the hell is going on behind the scenes. Could it be that RM has stashed away the Wembley money to invest in a team and Management structure that would throw everything at getting promotion out of this dreadful league? Also, with the FF approval being '' only days away'' could it be that we will get another chunk of money from Sainsbury's? Could this be Ron's Masterplan? One thing is for sure, I cannot accuse RM of lacking ambition. Or is he being foolhardy? UTB.
