Coates takes over & Boskamp's new job

Peter Coates today formally regained control of Stoke City and in the process wiped out much of the club's debt. He also stated he would keep the wage budget as it was and would not force the new manager to sell players. We shall see...
As for the new manager it looks like Pulis (no!) or possibly Gary Megson - not a favorate at Forest but he did okay in his brief tenure previously at Stoke. Outside bet is Brian Kerr with Lou Macari as Director of Football. John Rudge , the flat capped ex-Vale man is still on 'gardening leave' but likely to have some role under Coates new regime at the club. How about groundsman :)
Meanwhile, former manager Johan Boskamp is now the new manager with Belgian side Standard Liege. I shall follow that teams fortunes with interest next season. Good luck Boskamp!
