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

Most important appointment in decades. They haven’t spent any of the football fortune on players so they should identify a good prospect and go for it big time to get the right man - with a good signing on bonus and contract - even paying compo if necessary.

They won’t though.

What's Terry Venables doing these days. He was always a favourite of mine.

We’re up shit creek and people genuinely want to bring in Peter Murphy from Annan or the Assistant Manager from a Scottish League 1 team because he’ll be passionate?

Unbelievable…

The decision will presumably be made by Holdsworth, Kid and Clibbens as they run the show. AJ and his crew haven't decided anything for a few years now.

Curle just signed the good players from all the other clubs
Pressley signed Scottish lower league players
Beech had his expected goals and players taken out by a pass stats.
None of them got anywhere.

Kinder is the jewel in the crown, he brings in the youngsters.

It might be worth bringing in Flynn or Sheridan (if they would come) on a short-term contract until 30/6 just to steady the ship. Both of them have enough experience to get us 12th with the players we have, I think. Then we plan for next season

What you have to realise is the BOD don't want promotion so bringing in anyone with any ambition to go higher is a big no, no. Someone who will toe the party line.

Did anyone expect Beech to get the job last time. His name hadn't even been mentioned as hardly anyone had heard of him.

We missed the boat when Ian Evatt was at Barrow.

I'm sure Mike Flynn would be up for that.

Real prices are up:


Why are the favourites always people who've just been sacked for being shit somewhere else?


Neil Lennon, 25/1 :D - is that based on him being pissed in the Halston?

Steve Bruce should be available soon :D


Robbie Fowler out of that list. If he really wanted the job he could just buy the club with his cash.

I suggest you read the articles from our last couple of appointments Marko. AJ fully involved, indeed interviews often happen at his house!

Kinder has recently gone part-time too…

The people responsible for this mess will be the same people choosing the man to get us out of this mess.
Can’t help thinking if they interviewed a dead dog it would have a 50/50 chance of being appointed.

Pattinson still claims to this day they were told that dog had a UEFA Pro Licence

Looking at the list of has been`s and never will be`s the only one i would consider is... Alex Neil who has a decent record wherever he`s managed.
Would have to agree. A very savvy guy

On a very serious note supporters must realise that we have not got the players and particularly
Goalscorers .Neither do we have the money for players.We have a real probability of relegation unless the club can be sold to a moneybags quickly.I appeal to BOD to sell the club as quickly as possible.
Another possibility would be for Larry to takeover with a consortium then float CUFC on Aim market
then supporters and wealthy individuals could buy shares to avoid Inheritance tax.
Is that a possibility Andrew?

John McGreal updated his wiki page to say he works well with a director of football and his strength is developing a young squad

Encouraging to see the site is as crap as ever though,

I completely disagree with the talk that no experienced manager would come here. There are lots of decent experienced managers out of work who need a job and salary and certainly excess good managers to available jobs.

I’d go with Keith Hill or Mike Flynn. If Derek mcinnes was interested he’d be a good option.

I liked Beech. He steadied an appalling ship brought in good talent. You could argue he’s paid for himself in backing hayden and signing tanner and others capable of commanding a fee. Sale of both didn’t help clearly but letting Farman go was a nuts decision.

Any decent manager should be able to put a decent structure to what is a decent squad anc pull us away from trouble comfortably

There 'll be plenty of applications of that there is no doubt. League managers jobs are not that easy to come by.

We're not a team of world beaters by any stretch of the imagination but no way we're the third worst team in League 2.

Hill and McInnes would rock the boat too much for Jenks and Co and Flynn will have a better job lined up I would think.

Yet again you have the football knowledge of a goldfish.
Flynn is good odds to be next Cardiff boss. But I’m sure he’d much prefer a 9 month contract in Carlisle.

For me Andy Morrison would be a great option, a really fighter and did a great job with Connah’s Quay.


No way.

He's a complete 100% arsehole and would take the club into the gutter.

See when I wrote, if he would come? That means I thought he might not come. You can tell by the words

We can speculate all we want.

As long as Holdsworths still here it’ll be someone he knows, played with and cheap.

That’s what’s wrong with this club, no accountability due to being friends and only hired cause your friends.

Oh football friend!

Whoever, if we ever get taken over we need to stop this and get the best person available for each job.

Maybe this is all part of the great plan so we will all be happy bunnies if we manage to avoid relegation instead of expecting promotion.
We need to put real pressure on the owners to go this succession plan has yet again dragged on and on with not even a hint of where it’s going, just like the billionaire farce.
The disappointment to me is how easily people who came forward as potential new owners were so easily brushed aside. Knighton threatened to close the club but JC persisted until he achieved getting shot of him, which ultimately led to FS taking over before he consigned us to the bin by giving it to the present incompetents.
Other than being very wealthy is PD any better than the likes of Knighton.
