I believe that Salford City who have just been promoted to the Conference are about to announce former Scunthorpe boss,Graham Alexander,as their new manager.
Watch this space....just a rumour for now.

Graham Alexander: Salford City appoint ex-Scunthorpe manager

Salford City have appointed former Scunthorpe and Fleetwood boss Graham Alexander as their manager.
Alexander, 46, won 40 Scotland caps. He has signed a four-year deal with next season's National League newcomers.
Salford, owned by a group of ex-Manchester United players including Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville, have been promoted three times in four seasons.
"I have just left a job at the top end of League One but sometimes you have to take a leap of faith," said Alexander.
Alexander made 981 appearances in a 23-year club career that included spells at Scunthorpe, Luton, Preston and Burnley. He was sacked by the Iron in March following a winless run of eight games.
Neville told the BBC: "The amount of games he has played shows a level of character, personality, toughness, resilience and professionalism that we want."
Joint-managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley left Salford by mutual consent last week despite winning three promotions in a tempestuous four seasons at the club.
Neville said: "It had been coming for 12 months.
"They are the most intense, demanding winners. We are intense and stubborn owners. They felt let down over things they thought we had promised. We didn't think we had.
"We both needed to jump off the roundabout. It was spinning very fast."
Alexander added: "As a manager you have to look for certain aspects of what can be achieved at a new club and the possibilities here are boundless.
"There is a great deal of work to be done on and off the pitch to fulfil the potential of Salford City and I can't wait to get started."

ROSE TO EVERTON?

Danny Rose has been linked with Manchester United every summer in recent years, but the England left-back is now a target for Everton who finished six places below them, according to The Sun.

The newspaper states the Toffees are willing to part with up to £40m to bring Rose to Goodison Park.

Strewth that's one guy I hadn't even thought about playing in the "Number 10" role :lol:

As for Salford City...rumour has it that Graham Alexander turned down Everton before joining Salford as he wanted to be at a more progressive club !
Macclesfields star midfielder,Danny Whitehead,has already signed for Salford.....wages reported to be over 10k a month which is very good for the Conference and double what he was on at Macc and his previous club,Wigan Athletic.
He's got a young family to support so you cant really blame him.

Manchester United are closing in on the signing of Porto's teenage defender Diogo Dalot.
Dalot, 19, has a release clause of £17.4m but United are not thought to have activated it yet.
Manager Jose Mourinho believes the Portugal Under-21 international right-back can provide competition for United captain Antonio Valencia.
Contact between the clubs has been made and it seems only a matter of time before the deal is completed.
Dalot has represented Portugal from under-15 to under-21 level and made his Porto debut in October.

United are also rumoured to be after West Ham striker,Marco Arnautovic,who can play either on the wing or as a central striker.
Decent player,although he seems a bit moody and doesn't always seem fully focused,imo.

That is what makes him ideal cover for the bunch of moody half focused players already at Utd then \:D/

Notice he waited until the Everton job had been filled ........... no sense risking your agent making the blunder of all time :-k

How many league titles did he win? One title in the last 6 years is not good enough for Real. Yes he won a few cups, but they are just that CUPS, they are NOT the league.
