Nobody should be surprised of course. I know Cheltenham is just 33 miles up the A417 but Paolo doesn't do away games and doesn't like heading North in particular. There are still those who believe he should be in charge at Upton Park and they will maintain their adulation even after PDC is either shown the door by Swindon or flounces off in a huff. My prediction is that this appointment will end in tears.
How unfortunate is that headline for Cheltenham Ladies College?
