Experienced, available, you’d expect him to have plenty of contacts (both north and south of Border) in terms of recruitment...

I wouldn’t be against him being appointed, but honestly feel the BOD will take the cheap option and appoint someone like Skelton

I don't think the appointment of some journeyman manager is the way to go. We're ticking along nicely so just leave it as it is. Skelton isn't being considered as manager I've heard.

Can't believe you wouldn't start with a conversation with Tommy Wright. If we were bottom of the league fair enough but 6 straight wins. Try to keep the current management team together, money from Sheridan's wages available. Got to be attractive for Tommy

Great to see nods and smiles from the players yesterday when getting instructions from Tommy yesterday, no more effing n jeffing needed me thinks.

Give it to Tommy n Muzza, and then the BOD can concentrate on bringing quality in to replace our lost loanee's.

I had a wander round and chat with folk before and after the match.

I was quite surprised just how strong the feeling seems to be to leave things as they are. Regarding Sheridan a lot of folk were doubtful on the man but liked how the team were playing and most felt keeping TW and PM in situ was the best way to keep the continuity going. Also with them already in place, they had the knowledge of who was needed and it would be the best and quickest way to get in those players. Both must have contacts to call on.

Let them have it til the end of the season seemed to be the consensus and then review.

The only coach/manager type at the match I saw was Eric Kinder and he said he was always coming to this match because Exeter weren't playing. It was his chance to come up and meet friends as he was understandably busy over Christmas.

A brief chat with David Holdsworth, who said there was no shortage of people interested. As he said who wouldn't be with a team near the top of the League, its more normal for them to be at the bottom when a manager goes. He said he fully understood fans and club wanted a conclusion as soon as possible and agreed it was important to get things sorted.

The match was great. There has been times this year where it didn't seem worth the 70 mile round trip or the money. These last half a dozen games have been very special and worth every mile and every penny. Through all the shenanigans, the players on the pitch have been ultra professional, they've just got on and done what they do best. Thanks lads.

Was thinking the same. The money saved from Sheridan’s wage could potentially go towards paying for Nadesan and/or bringing back Yates for another spell.

It's a no brainer , the club's losing money hand over fist, save Sheridans wage and use it wisely..TM and Muzza can do the job no danger..even if Wright goes eventually Muzza, with Holdsworths input should be able to carry on, and Edmundson is also on hand if required.

From his post match interview wright clearly wants to stay but says it depends what the club want to do.

I wouldn’t want Murray to be in charge without Wright alongside him, I think you need someone with years of coaching experience which Wright has. Murray and Edmondson or Skelton would be too risky in my opinion.

Massive few weeks for.the club.
Will it go the way of option 1 or 2
1 Wright and Gerrard join Sheridan,all the loan players leave the club,Devitt and Hope are sold the money used to reduce the debt,the club eventually offer the managers job to a cheap Journeyman.Kenedy has a se back ,Grainger gets injured again.
2 Wright,Murray take the reins until the end of the season,Gerrard signs,Nadasen is brought in on a 3 year deal,Yates,Soweby extend loan to the end of season,we manage to off load some fringe player ,keep all the rest and add a couple ,Kenedy comes back to his best..

Good insight there Bumble, good to hear DH sounds keen to get it solved quickly. Personally I'd have Simmo back in a heartbeat but there's virtually no chance of that happening as he has a very good, stable job with the FA. Don't think Owen Coyle would be the answer would rather a manager with more recent experience in the EFL like Gary Bowyer.

Tommy Wright for me till the end of the season - this could be the stumbling block though as if we finish in mid table then he will be seen as a disappointment to the board and he will be on the way out.

We were mid table when Sheridan was allegedly given two games to save his job so the board seem to strangely demand promotion with the lower budget.

Anyhow, what would you do - a secure three and a half year deal at Chesterfield as assistant on probably not far off what we pay for the manager role at Carlisle or a six month deal with us and might get released at the end of it and by then Sheridan will have all his backroom staff in place at Chesterfield.

If he gets offered the Carlisle job then it will be down to his own ambition but he would be my first choice currently.

With the way Holdsworth talks about not wanting to give out two year deals and the likes anymore I guess this means the manager too so the best he might get is eighteen months (as in contract and not the chokey).

Players on short term contracts and loan at the club need stability,to attract players in this window we need stability. No manager is going to send loan players here without stability.
For me,offer it to what we have at the club until the end of the season now.Forget about recruiting a manager from outside until the end of the season.


Just a bit irrelevant till we know if Sheridan offers him a job on 4 times the money 30 minutes from home.

I certainly wouldn't consider Murray without Wright in the equation.

Wright might just see this as his opportunity to become a No 1, after all, when do you get a chance to take over a team on a six-game winning run?

The club have known since Dec 28th that Chesterfield had verbally offered him the job

Not if it was done by an agent not employed by the club who was "just sounding him out"

Why would he resign if he wasnt 100% sure the Chesterfield was his and for that to be the case discussions must have taken place.

Its an odd one after five wins on the bounce as you would have thought that yes Chesterfield can have him if he wants to go but with a sweetener of a bit of compo, but as we know he is an abrasive character so might have threw his toys out of the pram.

This says to me that Holdsworths contracts are possibly useless if there is something there which says he can do the off half way through the season as that bit doesn't make sense.

Bad enough that we aren't making any money from player sales mainly because they are not our players or on too short a contract to be worth anything but when the manager is allowed to walk off to another club then it tells me that Holdsworth is not as good a negotiator as some on here would believe.

Yes we are saving on his wage but on the other side of the coin the compensation from Chesterfield could have went towards Nadesan!

Wouldn't have Paul Murray without Tommy Wright however would love to see him stay on as a coach whatever the outcome. Always good to have someone familiar with the club in case anything happens (managers leaving) and they are ready to step in and get on with it.

I reckon his contract must have been worth 40-50k to buy out surely, especially as there was that second year offer and if he was allowed a clause to just walk away in the contract then Holdsworth should walk too - Sheridan was an out of work football manager ffs.

Unless he has been upfront and admitted the Chesterfield connection and not spouted some story about travelling or his new puppy being ill for wanting to be released from his contract I would imagine we may still have a retrospective claim against them.

The FA aren't stupid [ well not all of the time anyway ] and will be fully aware of the time order issues like this occur in and the only possible explanation is that he was told that Chesterfield would offer him their job if he can secure his release from his contract at Carlisle the issue at stake is whether it can be proven that Chesterfield were complicit at that stage and all the top twitter journos who are virtually always spot on were 100% certain that they were.

But what I don't understand is what Carlisle think they had to gain by accepting his resignation even if as some are suggesting they actually wanted him gone surely youd still say no and then see where it went.

We’ll likely never know the full version of events, but I reckon something close to the following has happened...

Chesterfield, wether directly or via agents, let JS know they want him on a very good deal. We get wind of this ‘approach’. There’s then some to and froing, result being we officially accept his ‘resignation’ in return for some compo and not making a fuss about the manner in which it has been conducted.

Happens all the time in the game...

So either way they should owe us something.

Maybe behind the scenes they are using that cash to try to buy Nadesan but I wouldn't hold my breath on that.

Not sure 75k would be enough anymore because he has become hot property with his performances and clubs will be out-bidding each other which is a shame.

Fleetwood however will be rubbing their hands together at the moment with how well their players get on here and they will be asking us to take our pick of their reserves for six months to a year loans so as they can sell them on next year.

I.m pretty sure there wouldn't be a break clause because the LMA won't accept them on their members [ or every club would just insert one after say 3 or 6 months to cover their backs ] so the use of them is a very rare exception

Not sure how you can estimate how much compensation would be due as the main influencing factor is the wealth of the club or individual doing the enticing and Dave Allan is a rich man who has proven in the past that hes not afraid to throw money at a project to make it happen which makes CUFC.s decision to accept JS.s resignation all the more strange.

Well i.ve not seen him directly linked with any particular club and my contacts on the coast say Fleetwoods policy has always been to bring 6 mth loanees back and fully assess the situation before allowing them to go back out again [ mind you their long-standing Recruitment director left not that long back so things may have changed ] But knowing Andy Pilley 75k wont even be in his thinking and i.d be pretty sure it won't be in Bartons either

On the other hand they might have thought let's get rid, no strings, it's not worth any more agro.....funny they insisted on compensation for Skelton tho!

Edit: wonder tho if considering he was supposed to have 2 games to save his job early December, if true and before the famous rant..could it be he wanted out as long ago as that, but we started winning and scuppered his chance of the sack...so he started his antics to pave the way to be sacked for bad conduct...that didn't work, so he's had to resign.

What if he was approached by Chesterfield three weeks ago, then he asked the board if there would be investment for january, was told if we were above tenth at the turn of the year that he would get some backing, then, when we're in seventh and he's told he's getting nothing, he decides to say f*8k you, I'm off. Could this be the case?

That would be an illegal approach if they never asked us first...

Can't disagree with you but maybe it was done correctly? therefore no issue?

I don't doubt he was illegally approached it couldn't have happened if hadn't been

But really its all down to what happened after the approach [ and there are any number of scenarios for that ] and how well Allan has covered his tracks.

The whole thing is clouded in mystery which is not helped by Jon Colman buggaring off on his jollies which is a bit of a coincidence because if I remember correctly he was away at the time of Sheridan's appt as well.

The Wright/Murray partnership would be my preferred option. They know the squad and bit of continuity would be good for everyone. My feeling is that the buffoons running the club will bring some cheap option in but they'll drag the process out meaning we'll miss out again in the January window thus saving them money. As a postscript I wouldn't let Skelton anywhere near the club after the Reds debacle. He's got no loyalty

Heard a rumour that Murray is getting the job with Skelton as his assistant. Tommy must be going to Chesterfield.

Depends why he left CU for Workington, just before Sheridan walked Walter.

I doubt we'll find out why he left, doesn't change my views on him tho. Someone's gotta get a grip on the situation to be honest I've got no faith in Holdsworth or any of them running the club. I hope they prove me wrong

No. Sheridan would have said. His post-match interviews were like Rab Nesbitt at the best of times, you think he would have kept something like quiet?
Curle spunked a wad of cash on players that weren't good enough. Clibbins was brought in to develop the strategy and stem the losses. Holdsworth was brought in to ensure that players we signed weren't on silly money and we were getting value for dollar paid. To me, it seems to be working. People shouting I wouldn't trust the Board bah humbug, meaningless waffle, utter shite. From the stories coming out the club the wage bill has been slashed, we have won 6 in a row and we have a youth team player coming into the first team. What is there not to trust? Get Wright signed up and move on. And a win on Saturday would be good, 1 win in 10 league games for them? Top scorer just gone to the bright lights of Scunthorpe, Jerry Yates could be back, a new striker signed. It's almost [censored] exciting. COYB

An experienced manager with an ego and his own ideas might upset things, cause more drama etc. - but most importantly, not suit Tommy Wright and Paul Murray.

I feel really strongly about this decision and know some people will disagree; but in my opinion (with us safe from the drop for once while searching for a manager/head coach) the club must either appoint either a fan favourite eager to prove himself who can work with Wright and Murray or not change anything if possible - which is obviously cheaper, too!

I know it sounds negative, but the club know relegation isn’t a threat so can take a gamble rather than go with a journeyman (with play-offs a bonus considering our expectations for this year) and absolutely have to capitalise on supporters coming back on board recently...
