    New manager of Oldham. Salford, who he owns 10% of, are currently in a national league playoff spot. What if he manages against them?

    Sanctioned by the EFL on Friday, as he only has a 10% ownership of Salford.

    Surely if he is still a bit of an owner it is conflict of interest?

    They're not in the EFL anyway so no conflict at the minute

    Ah they are down to 5th now. I assumed they were up there.

    I am sure Solihull Moors were in the shit a few months ago, up there in 2nd!

    Tim Flowers seems to be doing a good job there.

    On Scholes as soon as they are in the same league it’s a conflict of interest by the fl don’t care they have a big name manager running a crappy little club

    Same for me it was the coldest ground I have ever been to, I remember Roy Wegerle scoring there.

    Solihull Moors have been doing well all season and went top of the league last night after winning away at Aldershot. They struggled last season but Tim Flowers seems to have them well organised and is doing a good job after Steve Yates kept them up. I've seen them a few times this season and they are a good team and would do well in League 2 but they are not pretty to watch, they have a fair few big guys playing for them which makes them a very direct team and do a lot to wind up the opposition....very much like the Wimbledon of the 80's.

    Fair play to Solihull, I was about to say it would be good to see them go up but out of the teams up there I hope Orient get themselves back.

    Still at the club but can't get anywhere near the first team, they've got some good forwards there in Danny Wright, Adi Yussuf, Jermain Hylton and Nathan Blissett. Matty Stenson who was banging the goals in for Leamington is now at Solihull but struggling to make an impact there due to the form of those ahead of him. In fact, I can't even remember the last time Kwame Thomas was even on the bench.

    Apparently the owner wants to interfere in team matters.

    The owner is some weird Arab, a pound shop sheikh. I think they'll end up going to the wall

    I guess he doesn’t need the job as such will go back to tv.

    I’d imagine Scholes (like most talented players) would get frustrated managing L2 players anyway!
