Fowler unlikely to land the Leeds job – report
The Yorkshire Evening Post’s Leon Wobschall has told TalkSPORT that Robbie Fowler is unlikely to land the managerial job at Leeds United.
News emerged yesterday that the Liverpool legend, who represented the Whites during his playing career, had applied for the job, but Wobschall has suggested that he isn’t likely to be put in charge by Massimo Cellino.
"The smart money won't be on Fowler," Wobschall said. "The David Hockaday experiment didn't work, he only lasted 70 days, and it was a bolt from the blue when his name appeared."
"It would be another real punt if Fowler [got the job]. It sounds good, and might make a few headlines, but I really can't see it happening."
Chris Powell excited by Huddersfield future
New Huddersfield Town boss Chris Powell says that he is excited for the future of the club.
The Terriers appointed Powell over the international break and he will take charge of the team for the first time when they take on Middlesbrough – something he is really looking forward to.
“I’m looking forward to the Middlesbrough game,” he said to the club’s official site. “I’m really excited by what lies ahead. There will be ups and downs as there are in football, but hopefully there will be a few more ups than downs!”
Steve Evans wants home fortress
Rotherham United boss Steve Evans has said that he wants to make the New York Stadium a place where opposition teams struggle to come to.
“It would be nice to make New York Stadium a really tough place to come to,” he said.
“In the second half of last season we did turn the New York into a fortress.”
Stuart Gray wants more players to go on international duty
Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray has said that he wants more players to go on international duty as he feels it is a good indicator of success.
The Owls have enjoyed a great start to the season and, as a result, have seen a number of players join up with their national squads and Gray wants more international recognition for this team members in the future.
“It can give you a few headaches but it’s generally a good reflection of how well you’re doing,” Gray explained to the Star.
“You want to be successful and the more successful you are, the more players you’re going to have on international duty."
“Hopefully it is something we’ll be experiencing more of."
Butler wanted by two
Andy Butler could already be heading out of the door at Bramall Lane, with Crewe and Walsall both interested in loaning the centre-back.
Sheffield United only signed Butler over the summer transfer period, but he is already looking for a way out of the club after failing to impress Nigel Clough.
It seems that he could be in line for a return to his former side, Walsall, or League One strugglers Crewe as he looks to get first-team football.
