I just happened to call for Sherwood the day before he was appointed, at the time.
So I got lucky, it was as simple as that.
It was just the logical suggestion and I don’t profess to have any insider knowledge.
But it now seems the manager I suggested a couple of weeks back, Nigel Pearson, who is definitely Marmite, is the current favourite for the job.
You can put money on the fact that I can’t make two consecutive calls correctly.
The truth is I normally struggle to pick my nose, let alone make this sort of prediction.
So Pearson coming in, is almost certainly wrong.
But at the same time, the media are happily running with the story and I find it interesting.
It’s also interesting that, from what I’m seeing, the Telegraph, the Guardian and the Daily Mail all put this online within a couple of minutes of each other.
So it’s probably rubbish, aimed at us all liking a bit of speculation.
It’s exactly why I can’t really be doing with it all.
But still the logic applies.
He has the experience in promoting Leicester and most of their current team were his.
He seems as tough as old boots and will sort the squad out.
And he’s British, which is seemingly the biggest pre-requisite.
Oh, I forgot.
Most importantly, he’s out of work, so will be cheaper.
Which leaves Pearson and Moyes as the main current contenders in my book.
And given Moyes will no doubt have much higher demands, Pearson remains my best bet for now, until the spotlight hits someone else.
The story is made a bit more spicier, as it suggests that Pearson has his new no 2 lined up, in Chris Powell.
Which supposedly answers the fact that all Pearson’s backup team are going to sign new contracts with Leicester.
Who’s Chris Powell? I ask myself.
Well, he played under Pearson (and I do vaguely remember him) and got sacked as manager by Huddersfield.
Sounds about the right sort of choice for us then, doesn’t it?
Not that the no 2 matters that much, but it’s hardly inspiring, is it?
What happened to the days when we tried to get winners in?
It’s all a game isn’t it?
But there’s one thing I do know for sure.
There’s no way on earth any of the media will know anything for sure until the deal’s done and pretty much announced.
