Just read a tweet from Mark Donaldson on this. Good news if he goes before Semi Final.

Im shocked that a club of Coventry's considerable size are looking at Pressley.

His managerial record is pretty average really and he hasnt exactly got Falkirk flying in the 1st Division as they are sitting 5th currently.

Coventry are seriously skint and might not even have a home ground at the end of the season, plus I'm sure they will have taken to account the amount of young players Pressley seems to have brought through.

Must have a good agent. Can't really see the Coventry headhunters saying "see if we can get that guy that has took Falkirk to fifth in the Scottish First Division"

i remember him saying that falkirk would not get relegated with him in charge, he was very outspoken on this matter and he went public on his managerial brilliance with pieces in all the papers about how he was going to keep the bairns up...falkirk got relegated a few months later.

I've heard that they like hairy fannies down in Coventry, must say i'm surprised that it's this type of hairy fanny though :duck:

This could be good news for us if Falkirk go in to the semi managerless.

I suggest Jumbo Jim goes back to Falkirk before the semi. Would be most enjoyable should we win.

It's over a month until the semi final, If he goes this week then I'm sure they would have replacement in before the semi.

They should maybe talk to John Mcglynn then ;-)

It's not all about the short-term though. His philosophy is spot on and if he was given a bigger stage then who knows?

LIke a previous Falkirk manager he loves the sound of his own voice and telling all and sundry how good he is. A more articulate version of Yogi but with less substance.

I hope it goes spectacularly wrong for him at Coventry. The downside of that is as a media darling he will no doubt end up spraffing his pompous pish on the BBC.

much cheapness, if it doesn't work, much cheapness to get out.

Surprised the Yam job never went to him, mind you they have a queue as long as the turnstile for Graham Rix's hot tub lining up for the countries "hot seat" so they are not going to appoint just anyone.

My Falkirk friend said exactly the same thing to me when he was linked to the United job.

I think they will go for Paul Hartley personally.

you HAVE to think there's better quality down south than the dreary, fool that is Steven Pressley.
looks like a done deal though. Oh well, one dreary sod leaves and another will continue the role, Alex Smith. Monotone United.

The football ideas that both Pressley and Hughes share are commendable but difficult to implement at the levels they operate at. I remember when the late Tommy Burns got the hook from Reading, the then owner said they could see what he wanted to achieve but there was no way they could afford the players to do it.

I have not looked at the tables, but someone further up the thread mentions they are 5th in the 1st division. That says to me they are a mediocre 1st division side.

And regarding the semi, they are a team we obviously need to respect but should not fear.

Depending on who comes in it could give them a bit of a boost. That said, IF we play to our potential then we should beat them.

Papers are suggesting Pressley to Coventry will happen and that Falkirk will just use Alex Smith (old ex-Aberdeen and Dundee Utd manager) until the end of the season.

Radio Scotland just reported that he has agreed personal terms with Coventry.

It's a rapid rise in the managerial stakes for Pressley in what must be a great career move for him.

With his background, I've never been his greatest fan but I must admit that he certainly talked a good game in the TV interviews.

Confirmed by SSN a 3.5 Year deal, good luck to him. Always want Scottish managers to go down there and do well, maybe with the exception of Levein as cant stand him.

Good luck to him.

Even with the background, he did at least act with some integrity as part of the Riccarton 3 all those years ago. I hope this will be the stepping stone to a great career for him.

good luck to him at coventry, always looked out for their results since we signed Houchy all those years ago, interesting to see if falkirk just put alex smith in charge till end of season or if they go for someone now

That's a blow. Falkirk will have a new man in charge and all their players will be busting a gut to play for the new man.

Just our luck:grr:

As opposed to our players busting a gut to get to the final and finally putting last years mauling to bed, what's the problem.

Fenlon took his first Irish team to a final, got beat and came back to win it the next year, did he not?

I'd have thought it was a good thing, would think his presence and a Falkirk side that did so well against Celtic at Hampden was a fair banana skin for us.

Let's take a repeat of the last time we played them in the cup....

Alex Smith has been appointed as Interim Manager so there is some continuity. Falkirk may well take their time before appointing another Manager.

Also signed Roy O'Donovan from them, top class IMO.:cb
