Is Billy Barr going to walk North for this job just like he said he would walk all the way down the M6 for the Preston position?

If so Billy perhaps you could do it for charity this time.


I'll sponsor him as long as he keeps on walking.

I find it amazing that the club come to the decision to sack a manager and they dont have one lined up


Says who?

It would be sensible to always keep half on eye on who’s out there etc?

Will it before the oldham home game or Barrow.

I think they will give themselves time inc Skelton.

It would be good or nice to present our new coach before the Barrow game....I have this feeling they will invite numerous coaches who wear ties to the Oldham game and decide from there.

Still feel they will go with the cheap and popular option of Grainger. Once thing for certain is we do not need a hire a number two coach but a number 1 coach and MANAGER...that has flexibility, and understands tactics...

"and 'understand' tactics"
So ex professional footballers who are now in a coaching roll don't know anything about tactics, I don't think I've ever read anything as daft in my life!!

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."

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

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

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.

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

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...

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.

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.

Maybe it’s a one man shortlist?! :p
