    Interesting, that'll hurt Lincoln I think. Not sure how good an opportunity Huddersfield is, their promotion was a blip rather than something they'd be building towards for a while. That said, he's done a good job wherever he's been.

    Got to be bad news for Lincoln. I don't think they'll go on and do a Luton.

    report just said he's expected to join Huddersfield. I'll be surprised if his brother doesn't go with him though.

    Think his brother is going to be his assistant.

    Is that how they are now as manager and assistant? I always thought they were joint like the Salford guys used to be, but I think ultimately one has to have the overall say to make decisions.

    Think Lincoln as a club are on the up anyway, maybe not for another promotion, but even before they got up to L2 there seemed to be a good buzz surrounding the club. They just have to be carefully wise about replacements.

    I know money talks but I think it’d be a daft decision on Cowley’s part.

    Huddersfield don't appear to have a clue.

    Dortmund U21 coach worked for them so they hire another one, that doesn't work out so they go lower league.

    They also got rid of their youth set up if I recall. Apparently they're offering Cowley £2mill. Its been bubbling away for a while but he also spoke to Sheff Wed recently.

    I think realistically they're at the ceiling of their potential tbh

    Not surprised somebody has taken a punt on him. Hopefully will derail Lincoln's recent progress.

    Interesting that they talk about how he is earning 140k a year at Lincoln and will get 1m a year at Huddersfield.... money absolutely talks and i don't blame him. Bigger club, bigger challenge and bigger contract!

    Wonder if he will do an Eddie Howe and end up at Lincoln in a couple of years.

    For the money he will earn, that's not an issue financially and if he's as good of a manager as he thinks he is then he will want to challenge himself in the championship.

    There is security now at Lincoln but you go on a terrible run and he's out of a job anyway nobody stays at a club longer than 3-4 years now, if that.

    I genuinely don't see them as candidates for promotion this season, even with cowley.

    Not sure where all this has come from... Mid table

    I don't know, they'd been looking upwards for a while, but it hadn't fallen into place for anybody (including Robins!). Then it did.

    Don't think they've had as long as Sunderland to breed a culture of losing, but the first half a season is key. Get that right, and they're on their way. Get it wrong, and they'll end up like Jones at Stoke.

    But... got to take the chance when it's offered. Better that than wait for the sack.

    Doesn't really matter though. If he fails he takes a huge payoff and can come back to this level at a decent job writing Huddersfield off as a basket case.

    I'm with you...

    Not sure where the press hype came from and all of a sudden the bookies followed suit and most just assumed they were going to right up there. I would have been surprised to see them in the top 6 and even more so now!

    Eight times the salary might ease the burden for him.

    Almost 8 times his salary and a min of a 2 year contract. If it goes well, he gets another contract, if not, a league one club will take him and he’s back to wage he was used to. Not a gamble at all

    Ainsworth the Wycombe manager seems pretty popular with the bookies for the Lincoln job.

    Could destabilise another rival.

    How much would he be on at Wycombe do you think? He’s done a great job there but has talked in the past about lack of budget etc.
