Probably mere lip service but it’s quite pleasing that the club have been more open minded than a lot of fans and considered more options far and wide than just the one guy fans like. https://t.co/v8R00GhFD7

Interviews completed surely means an appointment is imminent then. Sounds like it’ll be one of Wilder or Appleton and I’m good with either.
