Mights as well stop clogging up the more generic one.

I reckon Hunt for a few games and then we shall see, Power is going to be desperate to keep us in this division this year to protect his investment of last season.

Tend to agree, Hunt has first dibs if he's staying. Bringing in an outsider with the window closed and the season in progress feels like it's not likely to work.

Of course, the court case stuff may mean we aren't likely to anyway.

I’d suggest Hunt & keep at least a tiny bit of continuity

Hunt until January at least, preferably with someone more experienced alongside him. He dug us out of a rut against Hull, something Wellens couldn't do at Oldham, eventually getting them relegated from League One.

I think it depends if Jewell leaves. I wouldn't want to risk Hunt in at the deep end with no experience behind him.

But I don't know, I didn't want Wellens FFS!

Of course Graham Alexander’s managerial reckon is pretty decent tbf.

Actually probably better than Wellens

Hunt as caretaker for a while at least. Give it to him permanently if it goes OK.

Other than that - I'd usually prefer we go for a retiring player or up and coming manager type. Don't know this season, though. Maybe an old and steady if unspectacular hand to get us through the current virus shenanigans.

Probably Hunt with an older head alongside him. What's Steve Coppell doing these days?

I think this is the assumed logic, isn't it? Hunt with a former manager of his as assistant like Coppell or Brian McDermott.

I'll be surprised if it's anyone other than Noel Hunt.

There's lots of unemployed potential out there right now too from the probably 'unrealistic' to the slightly damaged goods like Paul Tisdale (is that harsh?)

EDIT:

If Hunt stays then he may want to continue his development under a new manager. Surely there's not much additional cost with recruiting an unemployed manager?

Hope Hunt goes with Wellens. Appointing assistants to managers rarely ever works, especially if changing role at the same club.

Its the cheap option and the likely outcome if Hunt doesn't go with Wellens but its not something that fills me with confidence.

I would like Cowley

If wellens does go I don't want to see Hunt as his replacement, albeit he is inexperienced but not sure it would be the right time for him to step up, and I would suspect Ritchie may want to take his back room team with him as they understand his philosophy.

This will be huge for us though, may no qualms about it, he has built something here and although we haven't had the best of starts there has been signs of improvement.

Whoever does come in needs to continue the Wellensball that is what this team are used to and the players we have work well in that style, the next appointment will be crucial to ensure we don't drop down the leagues as we have previously.

I'd like to know though if he does go what the difference is between now and a few weeks ago when he pledged loyalty when it was all being banded about.

If there is nothing from BBC RS or an official denial this afternoon I'd be inclined to think he's off, as you would think there would be some official or unofficial denial.

Maybe a new appointment will be made with new owners.
Ohh how the plot thickens.
After all the club ownership challenges have not gone away.
