Neil Warnock ticks both those boxes.

Just saying.

also has the benefit of definitively ruling out Kevin Nolan, who said this when describing his best Xl back in 2012:
Kevin Nolan wrote:RIGHT-BACK - Bruno N'Gotty

He was a French international and a top, top player for us - one of the unsung heroes of a great time at Bolton.
and also this (in the same article):
Kevin Nolan wrote:Anelka was just top, top notch and he's played for all the top clubs in this country and across Europe.
result!

I like Neil Warnock as a personality, but not sure he`d be the man for BWFC. I think he`d always be tempted to head for another club for more money / status if the opportunity arose.

I personally would like to see someone like a Roy Keane character who would grab the bull by the b*ll*cks and sort out those who put in a half arsed performance. Bullying and fighting is sometimes the only way. How many times did Sam Allardyce get accused of using bully tactics by other teams, but it still got the results.

Another man who I thought did a great job was Simon Grayson, the Ex Leeds manager.
He got them into the play offs and was then promptly sacked for not qualifying.
(Just googled him to make sure I got his name right and it turns out he was born in Ripon, which is where I live. Didn't know that, so it's true that you do learn something new every day).

And as it hasn't been pointed out for a while may I remind you his name is an anagram of Colin Wanker?

Roy Keane is a bullying dick head. We don't need his type, we need a man manager that knows when to use carrots and when to use sticks. He needs to command respect and know how to get the best out of what he's got. Everything else is bells and whistles.

Is there no chance we could tempt Dario Gradi out of retirement?

I thought that had been fully discovered.

Plus, if he thought Premiership squads were talentless w@nkers how could he cope with a 3rd division set ?

Steve Evens comes into contention in skysports odds. Back to back promotion with Rotherham, and kept leeds up in the championship. He is also being dismissed from leeds duty. Dont know anything about him. opinions?
