All other things being equal I would probably go for Dave Penney. He did an excellent job at Doncaster and knows lower leagues football. The question mark would be - why is he nowadays only assistant manager at Southend?



Some connection with Phil Brown and they have a bit of money behind them. He would be a decent choice.  I just hope we stay clear of Steve 'one decent season which didn't see him get promoted' Burr and Ronnie Moore. Lets not forget Steve Burr did get relegated last season and we dismantled his Chester team the other week.

This thread shows our lack of realistic options - depressing.


Lack of realistic options ?,  

a manager out of work and one in our league at a smaller club.

keep up.

Stating the obvious, but the ones I've highlighted are at league 2 clubs, no offense but why on Earth would they want to come here at all? If we had millions to spend then yeah maybe, but we haven't.

Gary Mills, and definitely Martin Allen for sure woudn't come here, he's got the best chance of adding a promotion to his CV as champions of the conference premier.


Maybe they feel they cant take them any further. Money does speak in football these days and our crowds and budget would probably match a lot of them teams.

Burr has been offered the Town job, or an interview at least and declined so he can do one.


Mendonca chose Sheffield United over us after leaving Rotherham. Good job we decided not to go along that approach with him.


Baldrick ! The only impression you can do is that of a man with no talent !!

On what basis is Gary Brabin the ideal candidate?

H'mm well those club match our gates and at the moment better ours, they also receive an extra <250K> just for being in league 2, guess most of that goes on the increase in wages being in a higher league.

Maybe if we was getting 6,000 to 9,000 every game and had the financial clout to just go out and buy the Andre Grays for 30K+ like Gary Brabin did then by all means I guess.

Exactly what I was thinking Rodley.  Absolutely not Brabin.

Well he's got good statistics, but does this tell the true story?

He hasn't got a team promoted in our league, only below.  Someone mentioned on another thread that their mate who was a Luton fan said he was tactically clueless if things were not going to plan, sounds familiar?

We could have a mass committee of Trust members in leiu of a manager, where every week there is a poll to choose our starting 11, and another poll to choose our formation, and further polls to choose which players to get rid of and which to resign at end of season

2900 for Newport in the division above and 3200 for Stevenage in the division above. In the short term Newport and Stevenage is clearly the better option. But if you got the wheels rolling here then we have more potential than Stevenage and Newport in my opinion. Sometimes manager make strange decisions but in the long term look like wise ones.
