If Bignot is considering the job, i bet he'll be on the phone to PH. I'm sure PH will tell him to go for it. (If offered the job of course).

On the face of it, he seems ideal and has no baggage. He could leave Solihull today with him having no contract and it looks like it is his time to step up a notch. If he doesn't come here, i imagine he will be going somewhere else soon.

We started the season with a manager who had never managed at league level,

So I do not see that a problem if Bignot is appointed.

The choice seems to be, roughly, between an up and coming young manager and an older, been there before, experienced type. For me, and a few others, Bignot seems to be in the number one spot for the former, but I'm not sure who I'd earmark for the latter, just hoping a couple of names not mentioned may spring up.

To be honest, if the choice is between Marcus Bignot or Dave Jones, I'd be quite happy with either.

The more I think about it, the more I think Marcus is our man.  This 'experience' issue ... let's not forget that he's played almost 600 games in the League, many at a decent level.  This isn't some schoolteacher who's had a couple of decent seasons with a club a couple of leagues below the National league.  As others have said, non-league managers sseem to work well for us: Buckley, Slade, Hurst and Lawrie McMenemy had just been sacked by Doncaster when he got the Town job.

My biggest worry about Bignot is whether or not he knows how to use computers. The BBC interview indicates he doesn't do twitter or Facebook so is he tech-savvy enough for the job? Using computers is very important, I'm told.

Forgive my ignorance but where is this Dave Jones news coming from? Do we even know if he's applied/interested/shortlisted or has his name just been plucked from the ether?

I'd be happy with him or Bignot as it goes.
