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

Do you ever speak to your friend Mr Ricketts

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

That's why my actual serious pick would be Dave Challinor. Alright he hasn't "recently retired" (about 10 years ago?) but he had to retire from playing earlier. I'd take a punt on him.

In terms of rising through the leagues, not in style of play but Challinor could have the "Cowley impact"; as in the Lincoln Bros.

Wasn't he one of the first guys to bring the 'long throw in ' into the game ?.

Quote from: JBZ
James Milner player manager.  Satisfies those with a penchant for those formerly on STFC's books

I know you probably aren't serious, but someone like that would be a brilliant gamble.

I do wonder if the days of big name players going to small clubs to cut their teeth are over though.

nice to have these dreams mind, need to get from this perfect shit storm to a setup that can allow a young manager the chance for success

Maybe Joe Cole is thick...but...I’d suggest he knows a thing or two about football.
He was a top, top player at the top, top level and quite frankly his contribution to a dominant Chelsea team doesn’t get recognised near enough as it should

It’s probably not over but there are a lot more lucrative options out there for players in their mid to late 30s who are winding down.

There are so many more youth teams/academies and coaching/management positions those brings. There is the option of playing a few more years in India, China, Qatar, US.

Not to mention the vast amount of media jobs.
All of which probably pay better than STFC Manager.

Joe Cole will either fail and put Swindon in a worse position then before he joined.

Alternatively he would get us promoted and then leave for a more ambitious club. Our fans will then call him a bottler for leaving.

He’ll end up with a cushy number as coach of Liverpool under 14’s or something

I think he’s done work with Chelsea’s academy at some level.
He’s mentioned his desire to manage the England Under 21s but has admitted he probably doesn’t have enough experience yet.


I’d have no qualms about him rocking up here tbh.

Under normal circumstances and the club being ‘normal’, I’d fancy a Young first timer. Maybe one from non league - Ian Culverhouse at Kings Lynn.

Doesn’t usually stop the bookies compiling stuff least a ‘usual suspects’ list.
