Interested, knows the club, good coaching experience over 5-10 years. Ticks a few boxes. What do we think?

Knowing the club and wanting to come back out of choice asks questions of his sanity.

I've never understood how 'knowing the club' is an asset for a prospective manager.  I get the romanticism of a club stalwart turning round a toiling side but Stockdale is neither a stalwart nor a proven head coach.  

I was actually briefly coached by him during my first (and only) trial for Town in 2011/2012 and he obviously had talent, but I honestly don't think he's proved enough to be considered by anyone else at league level yet, and that's the barometer we should be using.

Good credentials as a coach but not at a club where the owners in reality invest very little, the squad has no right side or currently no goal scoring threat, the budget  or as someone once described it the f*****g budget is tiny and the fan base is disengaged and dwindling.

Why do we have this obsession that any former player would make a difference?

I'm not even sure what 'knowing the club' even means - just some buzz phrase invented by some pundit in between talking about putting the football in the goal and winning football matches for the football club.

I suppose at least he won't get lost on his first day.

I dont often disagree with you Abdul but I think it's relevant in this case. Stockdale has dealt with fenty and being a player,coach n caretaker manager under fenty  hes going in with his eyes open.

Why can't we attract a manager who is either properly up and coming or an ex league 1 manager with some pedigree?

I think we should be getting someone with previous managerial experience and I'm underwhelmed by the names mooted.

That's a good point, although bonkers that he's applied when you put it like that

Having seen the state of this team on Saturday, I've never been more convinced that we need an experienced manager to take charge, and quickly
Even if it's a short term, end of the season arrangement it has to be someone who can kick ar$e and organise. If we get this wrong again we could easily go down (again)
