January 2015 Job Offers:
Australia National Team
Simply put, this wasn't a job I was interested in. I do want to get back into management but international coaching isn't where I want to be at the minute. This was swiftly rejected.
February 2015 Job Offers:
Watford (16th, Premier League)
Languishing, battling relegation in the Barclays Premier League. Yes, it was tempting, and I attended the interview. But the forthcoming budgets were appalling and the club is in a bit of a financial mess. This one wasn't for me.
Athletic Bilbao (11th, La Liga)
I can't lie, this tickled my fancy. A move back to Spain was something that interested me, but at this stage in my career - I want to remain in England, where the support while I was in hospital was incredible. I have a connection with English football fans and if possible I don't want to move away.
March 2015 Job Offers:
Not so much as an offer this month.
April 2015 Job Offers:
Stuttgart (14th, Bundesliga)
As I said previously, I don't want to move away from England just now - though this was a job I was prepared to attend an interview for. Unfortunately I didn't agree with their philosophies and the job just wasn't for me. They were still in a relegation scrap, and coming back from my accident, I wasn't sure the pressure of keeping a club in the top tier would be right for me.
