Coates looks set to takeover Stoke City

The Icelandic consortium and Peter Coates have agreed in principle to Coates taking over Stoke once more (he originally sold it to them in the first place). Mind you it could all go pear shaped in typical Stoke fashion. It should be completed in two weeks time.
On the rumoured manager front, former manager Gary Megson seems a strong rumour, as Coates has always stated he wants an English manager. Megson was ironically manager prior to the Icelandic takeover and was sacked to be replaced by Gudjon Thordarsson (now at Notts County). Megson was frankly pants at Notts Forest although he did okay at West Brom. As long as it is not Tony Pulis or John Rudge I will give any new manager a chance...
