Really!
Gosh .... I find myself agreeing with Dan @@

Lennon is a volcano of nasty anger.

Anyway, he'll be after a Premiership club.

Did someone put a fiver on Phil Brown? He appears to be the favourite right now. Any good as a manager?

If I put 20 on Adrian Boothroyd he will be come favourite. He is certainly who I'd like to be our next manager.
The above post is complete bollox/garbage/nonsense, please point this out to me at any and every occasion possible.

i hope not... i may be totally wrong - but he always felt like a bit of a chancer to me - riding for far too long on BigSam's coat-tails..

Well the guy has had bomb and death threats and generally been ragged on by the other half of Glasgow, as well as having to deal with depression from around 2000... I can't say I've seen anything to suggest he's not just your typical Northern Irishman... bit of a short temper but means well. His record in Scotland and in Europe suggests he is a good manager, and yeah he's probably holding out for a Premier League club, but if any other Championship club snapped him up Bolton would've massively missed out!

Celtic look like they really miss him, and in a league that is supposedly as poor as the SPL in terms of competition is, that says a lot about what he did with the team whilst he was there...

Two choices which would get fans excited but probably to high profile, Tim Sherwood or Steve Clarke both unemployed, but by all accounts superb on the training pitch.

Whatever happens the profile of our next manager will tell us the ambition of the club. I think given were we are currently a British manager is a must.

A more realistic option would be Steve Cotterill.

I'm fairly certain that Sherwood wouldn't even take the phone call, were it to be made. He's fecking deluded as to his own ability. Why Spuds ever thought it right to give him the job i'll never know.

Oddly though and perhaps proof the are lies, damn lies and statistics he has the highest win ratio of Spurs managers in the premier league era.

True. Though the Spuds fans that I know, couldn't stand his attitude. He had a very high opinion of himself, even before he'd managed them for some bizarre reason.

Now that's odd. No mention of Jimmy Phillips taking charge. Instead it's the goalkeeping coach and another bloke Ive never heard of. What the feck is going on down there??!!

Phillips is a no for me. Maybe in time, but now is not the time for more learning. We need experience.

There's nothing worse than unrealistic AND uninspiring :D. I wouldn't want him even if I thought we could get him.

I'm all for the 'knows the lower leagues' approach.

At lunchtime, I was on top of the world, with a feeling of fresh optimism, that we had a chance to banish the bad times and make everything good again.

Within 12 hours, the powers-that-be have pissed on my chips once more. Nice one Garty.
