Wasn't there something about Evans and fraud at Boston?
Yes he was convicted of tax fraud, conspiring with the chairman to defraud the taxman so they could pay the players more and cheat their way to promotion

I never understand why names like Steve Evans get banded around for next Swindon manager, and it shows just how far our expectations and standards have slipped.

Our greatest successes have come with young managers, often those in their first or second job in management - Macari, Ardiles, Hoddle, McMahon, Wise, Di Canio etc.  Even Wellens.  It's in our DNA.  And equally we've consistently failed with old has-been managers, of which there are too many to list.

Sure, things are shit at the moment but the moment we settle for second, third or fourth best we are doomed to even more years of mediocrity.  When the ownership is sorted we should demand and expect a really good new manager, and not forget how we achieved success in the past.  

STFC is, and always will be, a great club - and our managers should reflect this.  25 years ago we would have been (rightly) annoyed that Steve Gerrard went to Rangers and not Swindon.  When the new ownership is sorted we need to get back to this, and not endlessly employ shit old managers because history tells you they will fail.

Football has moved on.  STFC's place in the footballing world is not what it was in the early 1990s.

Darren Ward threw his hat into the ring on Twitter about a week back.

It may well have been tongue in cheek but he's actually somebody I'd be really happy with if it turned out to be a genuine application.

Next season is going to be tough with the likes of Bradford, Exeter, Gas, Newport etc so whoever we get needs to hit the ground running

I reckon Yinka "Entourage" Casal could do a better job than the outgoing El Dino.

At least he'd his ready made bunch of heavies hanger onners.

Ticks all the boxes too. Not as good as SR though  Hmmm

Recently retired ex pros with no baggage is the route weve obtained the majority of our success from. On the flip side with the odd exception (Wilson and to an extent Sturrock) the experienced managers weve brought in have been pretty abject failures so I know where Id be looking.
