Mike Newell 😄 would that be to save money on the letters of the name on the manager office door?

How come he’s getting such a long contract 

Truthfully - does anyone give a shit anymore? The Latics I knew and loved has died.

I doubt whether any of our last half dozen appointments have been quoted. These are the ultimate mug bets


Some of the names on that list will want paying more than our last 3-4 managers did put together

 

It will be someone currently at the club or a name everyone has to look to Wikipedia to get a clue who it is

Campbell was almost appointed before Bunn, wasn't he? I'd not be against giving it Murray or Butler until the end of the season and re-assessing in the summer, preferably under new owners...

I imagine they’ve already lined someone up, it’s how they seem to work.

 

If it’s not someone already at the club, I wonder if Sol Campbell would take it, or would getting stung at a mismanaged Macclesfield put him off?

He comes across as a bit fruit loop but he's not that mad

Hardly the sort of thing there's a record of but I can't imagine any other club firing the manager and not even bothering to say who's in charge for the next game in 48 hours time.

There are only 72 EFL managers' job in the country and hundreds of managers out of work. As much of a basket case we are, the job will always attract applicants...

It doesn't matter who applies. Since they arrived they haven't been through any sort of process to assess candidates as they have just appointed someone they already know.

It depends what the pay is like as well.  Can't imagine many wanting the job just because they love the game

I'm assuming Barry works as a consultant for SkyBet and helped them put the tail end of that market up. 

Gunnar Halle

Ian Marshall 

Joe Royle

Mike Milligan

Andy Ritchie

Ian Marshall 

 

😂😂😂

 

Betting on this market is like betting on the Grand National when the market doesn't include half the runners and does include lots that wouldn't run in a month of Sundays.

Funny that

Out of the above my choice would be Adkins, followed by Cowley and at a push, Parkinson but we'll probably end up with Steven Pressley

It's early, and some of these names are questionable to say the least...

Holloway and Barton no chance but yes please.

Campbell and Curle more of a chance and yes please.

Isn't Barton manager at Brizzle Rovers ? and Holloway fell out with the owners at Grimsby so not a good fit with our totalitarian regime.

Which suggests the youth team manager?

I just found it strange they brought the youth team head coach in, as though they were grooming him for the first team post considering Kewell's short contract.

He's actually  done a great job with the youths and having listened to him in a recent fans podcast he strikes me a a very amiable and enthusiastic guy.

I think we could do worse.

Never seems to get that far though Lee, incoming manager usually been tapped up by the owners in advance and brought in to help the exiting manager move any furniture he may have in the manager's office.
