Well I’m underwhelmed if that’s the list-I would be confident if I was Skelton

Pay peanuts, get monkeys.Where is the aspiration?

I would call Billy Davies-made for him


'Where is the aspiration?' - it walked out the door the day Story gave these 3 leeches the keys.

Prepare to be disappointed and you can only be pleasantly surprised.

They have been in the Dutch Premier division for years and have a Population of 50k.

They are also fairly isolated up in Friesland.

' Heerenveen is one of the most financially secure Eredivisie clubs. A 2010 report by the Dutch football association showed that Heerenveen is the only Eredivisie club that has a financially secure budget.'

Words we can just dream about:

Because SC Heerenveen kept growing and the results were getting better every year, the club planned the first expansion of the stadium in 2002. The capacity of the stadium was almost doubled to 26,100 seats.

Throughout the years empty spots in the stadium were filled with seats. Together with some other changes in the stadium the number of seats increased to the current 26,800.

In 2011 there was a plan to have another expansion of the stadium, taking the capacity to 32,000. The construction should be ready for the start of the 2012/2013 Eredivisie season. The reason for the expansion is the ever growing waiting list for the club's season tickets.

Along with that, more people in the stadium means more income which leads to a bigger budget for the club to work with. However, this expansion was seen as too risky and financially unfeasible.

There were plans to expand the stadium to 29,000 seats over the course of the summer of 2012, however the economic downturn shelved these plans.'

I'd be surprised if they'd have even heard of Heerenveen, let alone which country they are from.

You can only pxxs with the cxxk you've got.

The conveyor belt at Carlisle will only stop when we have a the right squad and a winning attitude, and for that you need lot's of loot.

In those who make the decisions at CUFC, I believe we have a few with that attitude, however, I also believe we have a few at the top who believe "we are Carlisle United, in the North West of England" and have accepted that, in there view the circumstances in footy have changed, and we will always be a lower league Club.

They should study the likes of Heerenveen, look at the catchment area and what has been achieved.

I still can't get why people wouldn't want John Mcgreal , he knows league 2 was sacked by Colchester having taken them to a Playoff semi final in a very harsh fashion , they have exactly flourished since .

His football isn't not awful and he signs young players works with them

Holdsworth mentioned a few have applied from down South, hope Tisdale is one.


He also said if the right candidate was available from another club he's willing to pay compensation

I don't think it's happened before but I agree with Piglet, absolute no to Billy Davis.

I would be happy with Tidsdale, nice bloke who believes in youth but doubt he would want to move so far North.

It needs to be someone strong, he will virtually have to carry a load of young players to the January window. Left field shot Curtis Woodhouse.

Theoretically if we win our next 3 games in a row playing good football , would people be happy to give Skelton more time ? (I'm thinking no personally )

Csaba Laszlo is a leftfield addition to the market, around 16/1.

Ex-Hearts and Dundee United…

Well I know Billy and I think he would shake things up a bit.You have as usual only highlighted the bad, not the good.


What would you do if he turned up to his first press conference wearing plastic shoes? #InstantDismissal?

How can McGreal be odds on favourite? DH hasn't presented his short list to the Board yet.


Maybe it’s a one man shortlist?! :p

No.

I've highlighted the reason you'd have to have a screw loose to want him as manager.

He used to be a good manager, I'll give you that, and probably back when you were office boy at Motherwell. However that second spell at Forest really demonstrated how much he'd lost the plot.

It would be like asking Roddy Collins back.

Laffy's choice

"Davies' second spell proved to be a controversial and damaging one. He dismissed long-serving club staff without explanation, shouted at a photographer taking photos for the club's matchday programme after a match at Millwall, banned journalists as part of a "near media blackout", and employed his cousin, Jim Price, a suspended solicitor, as his closest advisor.

After an eight-game winless run left Nottingham Forest one place and two points outside of the play-off positions, and having seen his side lose 5-0 to local rivals Derby County two days earlier, Davies was dismissed on 24 March 2014. A statement on Forest's website read simply: "Nottingham Forest Football Club have confirmed the termination of manager Billy Davies' employment."

Louise Taylor of The Guardian pointed to Davies' "paranoia", "self-destructive insecurities" and "obsession with conspiracy theories and old grudges" as the reasons behind his downfall, suggesting that he had "shattered" his reputation. The Daily Telegraph's John Percy, who was one of a number of reporters who were "accused of being in league with his former employers" for questioning decisions Davies made, said that Davies was "destined for failure" because he was "obsessed" with conspiracies and hidden agendas. He pointed to the "huge funds" Davies was given to get Forest promoted and suggested that he "could have got away with" the "unsavoury" behaviour, had Forest been winning. John Payne of The Metro said that Davies owed the Forest fans an apology for his behaviour after failing to acknowledge them at the end of the defeat to Derby and "insulted fans' intelligence" by refusing to answer straight questions on the rare occasion he gave press interviews."

Sounds like Laffy's dream is the perfect fit...

I can really see Tisdale fitting in with the Paddock, Cravat and all. They'd fit like a glove.

He seems to be the type who would enjoy digs in the Lake District too.

Absolute Chalk and Cheese to the style Beech played but would suit the squad we have much better.

Do you think Brexit will influence the quality of the runners and riders in the field?


Is this your way of saying that Bilic's work permit application has been turned down?

Noooo.... McGreal is a step backwards from Beech. Typical uninspiring choice by the BOD yet again if he gets the job.


What's your objection to McGreal?

Get your money on John McGreal.


You sure about that?

McGreal ......had a very brief spell in charge of Swindon Town in the summer just gone, leaving because ownership issues prevented him signing new players."
