    Only a matter of time before someone mentioned your first question.

    And the answer to it is the most emphatic rejection to an idea I’ve ever given on this forum.

  3. Big Sam wants it. Big Sam has a history of doing it. Put the god damn money up and get him.

    I’m amazed that managers don’t see us as a highly attractive option. Swan around for a few months, get spanked a few times and then pick up a huge payoff. What’s not to like?

    Literally, Silva did it at Hull and it got him to Everton.

    Yeah screw it. Just get Big Sam in.

    I know his football isn't the most entertaining but its effective. And, he will certainly not take any **** from our prima donnas.

    Hughes would be an awful choice.

    I think the Prima Donnas are off in the December window regardless.

    I'm actually quite happy with Mullins taking over for now. He's done a brilliant job with the U23s this year and could be key to integrating a few into the first team. It's probably a slightly nostalgic feeling as we had some really good results promoting from within in the past with Malky & Dyche. An aspiring young manager with hunger and desire to exceed, knows the clubs youth and has played at the top level of English football. Mullins ticks all the boxes for me, I'm excited to see what happens tomorrow. I actually think we will pick up a shock win.

    I don't see it as a farce. We're hardly an attractive proposition at the moment but I'm glad the club are targeting these kind of coaches. If they turn us down then so be it, I'm sure plenty have turned us down before but we just haven't heard about it.

    Get a contract for 18 months /2 years and if it goes wrong we will sack you and pay you off. I'm surprised there isn't a big queue for this job to be honest.
    Setien now 5/2 favourite on oddschecker. Arteta is 66/1

    To suggest we haven't passed the farce line to the extent that the line is a dot behind us is equally a farce.

    If we were in the position we were last year then I'd agree with you. But we are scrabbling around for someone - anyone - to take over. It seems that anyone remotely progressive or ambitious has turned us down already and some of the names being seriously talked about are horrific. I suspect you'd have had a similarly emphatic response to them if they'd been mentioned in any other period since the Pozzos took over. Those old-school, has-been, usual suspects would undoubtedly view it as a short term free hit. They probably wouldn't lose too much sleep if the club goes down and they're out of a job in six months with a decent pay-off.

    It's in that context that I'd suggest that having someone who might just be able to get a hold of the dressing room, inspire some passion and drag a tune out of them might not be the worst idea.

    I wouldn't suggest it in ordinary circumstances, but these aren't ordinary circumstances.

    Why aren’t they ordinary circumstances? We are bottom of the PL and have sacked our manager to find one who can get us out of it. That’s been done countless times before, we are in no way unique. None of them have decided to put their mouthy captain in charge because he gives an impression of being a good leader - which is a reputation that is heightened within the club because we have such a dirth of leadership.
    Why would you employ Deeney when Allardyce has already indicated he’d take it? Would be beyond bizarre to the point I’d be sure Gino would be purposely sabotaging the club. When things go wrong on the pitch, Deeney throws his arms about and blames others - not a good trait to take into coaching. Even if we can’t get anyone, give it to Mullins who is an actual coach surely?!

    We are ‘scrabbling around’ in the eyes of the media only - who have to write stories irrespective of accuracy. It’s been less than 48hrs.

    He's the captain already. He's in the dressing room every game and hasn't managed to inspire a remote bit of passion so far this season, why would being head coach suddenly change his ineffectiveness? Plus, I could be wrong but I suspect Troy has as much tactical insight as a potato.

    We need to get somebody signed up before Everton make their move. As Jame Austen once wrote, it's a truth universally acknowledged that if Everton want somebody, they'll get him (unless it's Big Sam, obvs).

    Cathcart is surprisingly decent on the ball for NI - O'Neill spent a lot of time transforming NI into a ball playing team (until they play against the top teams obviously).

    Put some decent defenders alongside him and he won't look out of place. The problem is we have no decent defenders for him to play with it seems..

    From everything I’ve read about this manager in the past 24hrs, he sounds like an absolute dream manager...for a team that doesn’t have a set of completely inept defenders.

    If he is coming in, it has to be on the proviso that he can spend money on plenty of defenders in January.
