Quoted from AdamHaddock
Dean Saunders would be an excellent appointment - he built a very good team at Wrexham. Though I'm still hoping, rather than expecting, that Hurst will get us winning and climbing the table.


Took him 4 seasons for him to make a squad of the quality. In his first season they finished 11th, second season he finished 10th. Third season his side got to the play-offs but got beat 5-1 on aggregate by Luton. And then in his 4th season he joined Donny.  41 % win ratio at Wrexham. For me my top 4 targets would be Neil Aspin, Gary Mills, Graham Westley and Dave Penney.

Not easy to find a replacement when the club finished 3rd last season. Two managers were better than PH - One had a lot of money to spend.

After reading the suggestions, I don't think many if any would be interested. Westley would be my pick. Why haven't any lower league managers been touted

Anyone who moaned about the cynicism of Gateshead will love watching a Westley team!

Of those, the only arguably achiveable targets would be Mark Robins (Done okay I think), Dean Saunders (knows the league too), Micky Adams (My personal choice, perhaps I'm kidding myself), Paul Buckle (no better than what we have I'd suggest), Nick Barmby (Local links, but he's an unproven mudrat so not for me), Paul Jewell (I still haven't forgiven him for hitting the bar at Oxford in about 1995!).


You are joking right?  Even if we could afford them most of the above will not be interested in coming to a run down poxy non league club, it would finish any future career prospect if they come here and fail.

I couldn't give a toss about the style of football we play. People are asking way to much if they want us to play a certain style and get us promotion. Playing hoof ball and being dirty tw@t like Crawley, Mansfield and Fleetwood and getting promotion would be fantastic.

Here's a name for you - Garry Flitcroft at Chorley.

He's taken them from the Northern Premier League Division 1 North to the Conference North (two promotions) and currently has them 3rd in the table.

We shouldn't really be having this conversation because Hurst is still our manager and I believe we'll win on Tuesday night and he'll continue in the job.

But Flitcroft has caught my eye before. He and his brother (at Bury) are making good managers.

The Grimsby job must be one of English poisoned chalice's. The bloke hasn't even been sacked (I don't think he will either.) I was hoping like some here he and the club would have parted company in the summer. Having said that, Would Macca and Pearson etc signed for another year? I think not.

If the Board decide a change is needed, I'd like to throw the name Graham Turner out there.

Yeah that's a good shout with Ron Atkinson as assistant manager we would urine this league.

Whilst some of the names mentioned would appear attractive (most of them unattractive) we know it aint gonna happen. You just KNOW that if and when Hurst gets his cards, Doig will no doubt be the one to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.
