Here are we are speculating what the interviews for the Town job will be like - well this pretty much reads like Marcus Bignot's interview (assuming he applies and gets an interview).  I know we shouldn't necessarily be influenced by people who can talk the talk, but he comes across very well - and to me is just the kind of up & coming young manager we should be looking for.  Let's not forget that it is rare for a manager to come to a club that is not in crisis, as that is invariably the reason why there's been a vacancy in the first place.  He'll need time to get used to League 2, but hopefully he'll be allowed that.
There's also a bit of a link - brother Paul played for us.
I see too that Ian Holloway is his mentor.

Another plus he does not work with a contract at Solihull,

So Fenty will not have to pay any compo.

What a great read, completely level headed guy and dedicated to his profession. And everything he's achieved has been the hard way.

He sounds awesome ! Came across really wellness in that article-focusing on coaching since he was 19!

I have no real view on this one, but re-uniting with Omar Bogle (Marcus was his manager at Solihull) might just be a way of extracting the best from the player consistently. But who knows?

Whoever we get I hope they have some personality and can engage with the fans. Though he did the job I always thought PH was too aloof to be truly accepted at GTFC.

You always got the impression that Omar and more recently Tombola never bonded with Hurst maybe the new man can extract the best out ofth pair of them.


Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.

Looks the perfect fit in so many ways and would be within budget. Just hope he has been approached or applied.

that's what I was thinking - hard to see anything negative about him, other than it's a big leap after a dozen games to in National League to League 2.  He seems to have this positive attitude that the fans should find refreshing -and what price on Omar scoring in his first game?
