A Thread for debating who’ll be next into the Brunton Park hotseat!

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


Turns on players and fans everywhere he goes. A poisonous individual

Keith’s all over! Millen is now shortening up…

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.


Not sure you can blame Nixon for playing a goalkeeper who spent the entire game rooted to his line; or a striker who stood still watching the game more than most of the Paddock.
Hopefully after Tuesday, Skelton gets the message and plays Young from the start, let's see. Clibbins was responsible for not renewing Curle's contract. If Oldham win on Saturday Curle will have a smile about 4 foot across his face. If Clibbins has to face that in reception, Skelton will be lucky to get a job licking the BP bog bowls clean

Keith Curle - fair play he assembled a good squad.

Shows what an average manager he is that he couldn’t get that group of players promoted even with big bonuses and incentives.

Good points, all adds to a decent debate. Just hope they / we get it right this time.

He's also an experienced manager who knows how to drag teams away from relegation battles, and guide teams into the play-offs.
Exactly the type of manager we need right now.

I’d have Keith Hill but would be extremely surprised if he came here.

Keith millen has legs, mates with Holdsworth so a shoe in.

I wouldn't take Hill after what happened at Tranmere.

By all accounts, the players hated him as he was "too old school", whatever that means, and stopped playing for him.

It's got to have been a pretty awful situation for him to have been sacked on the eve of the play-offs. Is this what we need at our club right now?

Can't believe people are wanting Sheridan back. The man dropped us like a stone and has absolutely no loyalty to anyone

I like young upcoming managers but with our league status potentially on the line AGAIN this season I think an appointment of someone with experience who can drag us to safety is what's warranted.

Whoever comes in they've still got to deal with those absolute f&#£wits in charge. They're the real problem, they're like a cancer slowly going about their business destroying our club.

Kieth Hill would be nothing short of a disaster the man is more tactically inept than beech

I'm with JohnMc.

Bringing in Beech's mentor isn't the answer.

Rumour? Co-incidence? Unrelated?

Let’s face it could we get anybody better than Simmo at this time. Unlikely with Nixon and Co in charge of recruitment.

So he would be a good fit if it’s the case.

He’s Fav with BetVictor and SkyBet now! :D

Hasn't Simpson got cancer?

Ex Tranmere boss in the running. Oops, already mentioned above.

Simmo has been treated for cancer, all the press and chat I've heard has been very positive and he went back to work at the end of August. Having had cancer, thankfully, doesn't always end a person's career.

Good to hear, let's hope he has made a full recovery and put it behind him forever

Bristol Journo has tweeted his departure isn’t Health-related.

Seems to be a lot of talk of Ipswich potentially for him next…

Carlisle or Ipswich
That’s going to be a tough decision for him

I’d have Simmo back in a heartbeat!
However I don’t know what his health is like and I can remember him telling people last time that he’d not come back under this regime after the farce of his last interview.
He’d be crazy to come back, under the current circumstances – which is why I think its codswallop.
I also heard the Ipswich rumour

Agreed Mullen. Prior knowledge of working with these will prevent him I hope (for his sake) Same goes for Danny Grainger, he has the inside track and has more sense.

I'm still waiting for Keith Mincher to take the reigns or Neale Cooper RIP for that matter!

Danny Grainger has definitely applied.

If true, that surprises me.
