Do you think the club hasn't been preparing for this ? At least looking at who's available, & with proper inside knowledge of what they are like salary expectations, availability and geographical ambition ?

Or do you think Wednesday might's result sort off sneaked up on them all unawares ?
They have succession plans - I clearly remember Garty espousing them, when he put errrrrr.....

Sammy Lee in charge.

Still no confirmation on who will take tomorrows game.

Surly we don't have somebody already lined up for the job??

Also strange that Dougie was said to be taking today's press conference and then everything changed.. Something has happened between announcing Dougie will take a press conference today and cancelling the press conference and sacking the guy..

Current odds are very funny.

Paddy Power offering 11-1 on Coyle but, if you really fancy a punt on his return, go for Coral at 100-1. :lol:

Bring him in with Lennon as assistant - revive the Ginger Minger tradition.

Feck it! If we all put a quid on Campo we'll have him odds on fave before the night's out!

(In fact, from what we know of the man, I'm surprised he's not already backed himself into favourite's position!)

What is interesting (though probably not significant as A1 rightly spots) is that Clough and Keith Hill have come roaring in from nowhere.

McDermott and Jones sound like good shouts to me. I don't know whether it's apathy or not but there isn't any one on those lists that I'd be dead against, although Hughton should be excluded if only for being daft enough to buy Elmander.

Alan Ball is dead isn't he?

Alan Stubbs won 3-1 at Rangers with Hibs the other day. Should be enough for a 3 year contract, double-your-salary call from Gartside.

I thought Ricky Sbragia did a decent job both with us and at Sunderland in the short term, but he hasn't been mentioned. Neil Lennon at 20/1 is someone I'd like to see given a chance. He's unlikely to get a Premiership job straight out so may fancy cutting his teeth in the Championship.
When did Ricky Sbragia manage us?

No, I'm not too bothered by them either.

Storm/Teacup with a fcking idiot of a Chairman.
I know he got Reading promoted. Most Reading fans I know said he came across quite arrogant especially when their in the Premiership.

He didn't, but he was part of a well-regarded coaching staff during our most successful period, and did keep Sunderland up with a squad that was far from the best.

Mackay can feck off. Absolute bell end and managed to get promoted with a shit ton if money. Who knew?!

Mowbray is even worse. Is like Coyle, if you swapped links with Bolton for links to that fckuing Ipswich team.

Karl Robinson for me.

By getting his side organised he managed to beat teams like Barcelona... that's something not many managers have been able to do in Europe.

He comes off as a decent enough guy and I think the Championship would be a good place for him to prove himself in England... He'd get our side organised at least.
