Thinking on...

Kuqi played with McGreal at Ipswich.

Maybe the ticket is McGreal as head coach with Kuqi as his assistant...

The lack of any sort of info or news coming out of the flub at this vital time is disappointing to say the least, there should be some urgency given our precarious position.
The best way to pick a new manager is to have prospective candidates watch a match and training then put forward their thoughts on what needed to done to get the team playing to their strengths and start getting results.
I remember a one Bob Stokoe been given the job through that process and he came in and didn’t make any signings to start with but got the team performing.

Keith Curle was the same I believe.

John Sheridan on the other hand was just on his hols and popped in at the Crown at Wetheral for a shandy and got the job. By the look of the photos at the time anyway!

Neil McDonald or Lee Clark would be my guess.

They're always lurking about like a bad smell!

With the advent of ifollow etc I think most do it with videos. When Lee Johnson was interviewed at Bristol C he turned up with a video he prepared of the team. He showed why they were conceding goals, how to cure it, and a list of players he could sign.

Skelton to remain in charge for the game Saturday.

Sounds like a decision will be made next week.

Or the logistics surrounding who they want mean it’s practical to bring them in early next week?

David and Dean Holdsworth are both 33/1 with Sky Bet.
The dream team to take us where we belong!

At least they can say they took their time and gave it a lot of thought before announcing an utterly underwhelming choice!

Little bit of money coming in for Paul Arnison. I'd be happy giving that a go.

All pointing to Skelton now imo. Beat Oldham and wouldn’t be surprised if it’s made official by 6pm Saturday evening.

Probably seen how much of a similar basket case we are to what he saw at Swindon prior to their change of ownership.

Deliberately waiting until after the Oldham game with their fingers crossed that we win so they can take the cheapest option.
Although beating a club in a worse state than we are shouldn't count as making him the right choice.

An appointment so ill-fitting, short-sighted and grim it is inevitably true.

What a joke these idiots are

Keith Hill... Not a fan, JohnMc?
Interested in your thoughts?
I wouldn't be against it TBH... But, don't know too much, other than looking at his previous record

NCF... Often the voice of reason on here... Who you fancy as the manager?

Let’s face it, whoever comes in is hardly going to have the best CV around and people are always going to find a fault; inexperienced, journeyman, crap style of play, never been promoted, etc, etc.

Personally I like seeing clubs think outside the box a little and look as though they’ve put a bit of work into finding a decent choice, Swansea have always impressed me in this respect. There’s nothing worse than a boring, lazy appointment of a tired old journeyman manager who clubs see as a safe option.

Someone in the ilk of Neil Critchley who Blackpool appointed from Liverpool’s youth set-up would be a good choice, although you could say Beech was of the same manner and that didn’t turn out great.

I don't hold Beech as 'to blame' TBH... Losing your best CB, and then a bloody good full back in the opening weeks is a disaster... Anywhere.
Beech was told to get on with it... Pre-season worthless. Dressing room atmosphere - knackered.
Low and behold, 2nd bottom 10 games in. What do we expect?
Never mind, offering Zanzala less wages than Barrow... The board and their lacky, Holdsworth are to blame.
They have a predicament now... Cheap wage manager and much the same, or take the bullet and appoint someone who's been there, done it, knows the score, but who they can't control and wants to spend cash to solve the issues they created in the first place?
Shambles.
