A Deny for a Deny Ritual

The last few days just seem to have been a case of speculation turning to denial.

Th latest to deny any interest comes from Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson

Ferguson told the local Peterborough Evening Telegraph: 'I haven't heard anything from Burnley and to be honest I wouldn't expect to. Someone mentioned over the weekend that something had been in the paper, but I wasn't that interested.

'I've only been a manager for nine months and I'm very happy working at Posh. I've been given a great opportunity here and it's a job I want to see through.

'My only concern is getting Posh promoted. That's all I think about and concentrate on and newspaper speculation is not going to change that.'

Sounds like the usual sort of shock,horror denial stance, but would you expect them to say anything else? Would anybody stand up and say,yes I really want this job or would they fear of rejection? Perhaps the ones that say nowt are in with a better chance.

If thats the case we have already ruled out Owen Coyle at St Johnstone who only yesterday said:

'It`s the first I`ve heard of that. If there are reports elsewhere linking me I know nothing about them. It goes without saying I`m totally focused on St Johnstone.'

The pattern continues with next up,Blackpool boss, Simon Grayson(Pictured)

'There is nothing to comment on - it is just pure speculation again,' Grayson told the Blackpool Gazette

Owls boss, Brian Laws has also tried to dampen speculation linking him with Burnley and says instead he wants to become one of Sheffield Weds' longest serving managers.

Barry Kilby however seems not at all perturbed by all these denials. 'We've had plenty of applicants,' he said. 'We've also been interviewing over the weekend because I'm conscious that we want to get our season back on track and know which way we're travelling as soon as possible'

Kilby continued 'It's not been a difficult process because there have been some quality candidates right across the spectrum, from younger managers to more experienced managers.

'I think the quality that has come through has surprised me a great deal, but it just re-enforces that point that managing a Championship club like Burnley is a very appealing prospect.'

It is hoped an appointment could be made as soon as tomorrow afternoon.'

Gawd I hope so, I dont really want to read on anymore messageboards that Paul Jewell will be our new manager aided and abetted by Stan Ternent. Oh my gaod,you dont think? ;-)
