Artell for me. His analytical background with Crewe fits in with the club’s ethos. There’s not many “unemployed” managers with that background readily available at the moment. Too many of his developed players were sold on too quickly and when it backfired he was the inevitable scapegoat. 
Which players did he sell on out of interest?

Perry Ng and Harry Pickering were the big two.

Going by what my Cardiff mates have told me I would go with Morison, but 2nd choice would be Artell.

A lot of them were sad to see him go, weren’t they?

Yes 2 of my best mates are season ticket holders at Cardiff and were upset he left. He did split the fan base but its rare that a manager is sacked and still has the backing of 50% of the fanbase, usually those wanting rid far outweigh those who want to keep them.

I think you can add Owen Dale to the three names given above. All four were sold on for good fees during Artell’s tenure. I hadn’t realised Artell had been at Crewe for so long. He joined in Jan 2017 and left in April 2022 with a win % of 36.50.

Head was turned by Morison but sticking with Artell.

Would love Hughton but don't think it's a realistic option so gone for Artell. Would be happy with Morison, and to a lesser extent, Foster.

Pretty much my thoughts too. Don't know enough about Foster to form an educated guess though, no idea about style or how he manages but he seems to firt the bill.

 Hughton the easy pick. None of the others appeal at all.

The guy who got Crewe promoted from League Two doesn't appeal AT ALL?

Not much. Hardly an exciting name is he?

I think Hughton would have been a great disappointment. I hope Artell gets the job.

We'll see I suppose. Big appointment this. Need to get promoted. You can't be getting gates like we do, get a player like Austin back and not go up. To be fair Artell has done that.
