Klug and Williams Set to Be Caretaker Bosses
Tuesday, 10th Apr 2018 22:56

TWTD understands academy head of coaching and development Bryan Klug and former midfielder Geraint Williams are set to be put in joint-caretaker charge of the Blues ahead of Saturday's trip to Nottingham Forest.

Klug, 57, has previously been in caretaker charge of Town between previous managers, while Williams, 56, is an experienced boss having previously been in charge at Colchester United and Leyton Orient as well as the Wales U21s. The Welshman has recently been working at the academy.

Manager Mick McCarthy announced his departure from Town with immediate effect following the Blues’ 1-0 victory over Barnsley.

Good luck guys please just tell whoever plays to enjoy themselves and entertain the fans you’ll be amazed at our response if we can see entertaining football

Thought that Klug might get the nod as caretaker. Means Nash and Lee can carry on with their teams until the end of the season.
Seem confirm the general opinion that the next coach is presently under contract somewhere. If Evans is really concerned about fans not renewing season tickets etc then I think that he would see Mogga favourably given his background here. I would be happy with that although still like Burley but he hasnt managed for while. Outside of those two Paul Cook would be good. Too soon for the Cowleys and not sure about their brand of football at this stage.........

Good luck, feel that’s a great combination for now.

But we need a big Manager in the Summer and a Big Cheque book from Evans!!

Entertaining football please.

Lets hope they can sort out who is staying and who is going regarding the players out of contact and the poss one year extensions.

Why both of them surely only need one man in charge

Edmundo added 23:06 - Apr 10
Ideal. I'm really looking forward to seeing a Town game for the first time this year.

Was expecting MM to still be in charge on Saturday at Forest but now am glad he has gone as now I hope we can see a slight change in style and with those going we can all get behind the boys and have a better showing than we did last time (3-0 loss)

Congratulations IRTractorboyz we have the first whinge of the post MM era

Nice, Williams didn't do so well with Wales U21's really had some good players but poor results

Just say to every player travelling. Work for each other, enjoy yourself, express yourself, how me and all the fans what you can do.

irtractorboyz... 2 people to fill 2 positions that have become vacant!

Dissboyitfc added 23:23 - Apr 10
This should have been done 2 weeks ago!

Woodbridgian added 23:43 - Apr 10
Smart move I would say and good luck to them and the team and hopefully means it’s not McClaren or Pardew as both available immediately.

Gforce added 23:43 - Apr 10
Good luck lads,will be interesting to see you're first team selection,
compared to our previous incumbent.

Sospiri added 23:59 - Apr 10
Really pleased that Brian has got the caretaker role. I have a lot of time for him. Be really interesting to see the team selection, and playing style, for the last four games.

Seasider added 00:25 - Apr 11
Broskibeen:Didn't know how he did with the Wales under 21 squad;but he is the only manager to get Col U into the 2nd tier,and I think he managed to keep them in the Championship for a couple of seasonsAlso he was a player here,a midfield player like Cole Skuse,and also a similar goalscoring record as well !

He will also have Brian Klug with him,and from the players coming out of the Academy recently,I am hopeful that they will both do ok,and in these four games will be able to formulate a better opinion on some of the Players,which can then be passed onto the new Manager.

Bet the next home game will get a bigger crowd than the 13000 odd of us that were here tonight.Onward and upward (I hope)?

Looks like my mate will now renew;so a happy evening all round.

Up the Towen!!!

McCarthy has gone - forget him.

Let' get 100% behind whoever is appointed - and help then move us forward.

Let’s just get behind these guys now and end our season with a smile on our faces and play some entertaining football

quickest way to div 1 Cowley brothers!!

Might as well start with Crowe in goal because I doubt Bart will be here next season particularly if he gets a start in the team for Poland at the World Cup.
I just want to see some entertaining attack minded football rather than setting up for the proverbial point.
