Hearing rumours getting stronger of Garner returning. Not sure if itís people putting 2 and 2 together with him featuring on BBC wilts but rumours are definitely stronger than they were before.

Will he be sat in the DR stand as well?

I don't think Garner would return with Clem in charge from what I have heard about how he left us.

Weíd be stupid to have him back.

Not only did he do us dirty with the timing of talking to Charlton - heís generally been shit everywhere else apart from 1 season here (and we were still shit at times that season)

Like in all seriousness - does anyone look at our current squad (granted it might look very different come August) & think, yeah Ben fucking Garner could get a decent tune of out of these playersÖ

Öbecause I do not.

Ben Garner might at least know what to do with the eight hundred small technical midfielders we have.

He's not my preference at all but if it's him or Gunning then welcome back Ben. You would like to think there are wider options available, but Clem has shown repeatedly that he likes to go back to past glories.

I don't think Garner would return with Clem in charge from what I have heard about how he left us.

Even from Garners own words in the interview with Hawes, he left because of changes behind the scenes he wasn't happy with (see Chorley exit time), so its difficult to see him returning.

However, Garners stock is pretty low right now, sacked by Charlton, and then by Colchester so i think he struggles to get another league job, so i guess its possible he lowers his standards to secure one possibly?

Despite his 'success' he never really built that relationship with the fans and thats down to his own personality but also the tendancy to play a brand of tippy tappy football that a significant number of the town faithfull lambast. So if it were to happen i don't think Clem would get much credit for bringing him back.

Someone on here pointed out that our new assistant worked with him and Russell and WBA, not sure how true that is? Is this another Lewis Ward type arrangement. We want him but the terms of his Colchester seperation see us waiting until the end of the season to do it? I doubt it personally.

Personally his reluctance to move away from 5-3-2 annoyed me for a lot of the season, and it amused me our run at the end of the season to get to the playoffs was because we played 433 finally, with Barry/Davison/McKirdy up top.

I don't think bringing him back is the way to go sadly.

Clem is naive enough to think bringing Garner back would quieten the fans for a bit. Thatís how his brain works.

I think Garner would jump at the chance to come back with the way his career has nosedived.

I know Garner is out of work, but he's not an idiot and surely coming back here to manager the club in an even worse situation than when he left is a lose lose for him.

With that said, when he took the job on 3 years ago with only a few footballers in the building and post the Sheridan league 1 Covid season, times weren't great then so maybe he'd like another go under a different challenge.

Unfortunately, such are things at the moment that it doesn't really matter who is managing the club until multiple things are sorted out behind the scenes.

This is it in a nutshell sadly BO. I do realise this is a football forum and it's what people are going to want to talk about, but the fact is that currently any discussions about potential new managers and the merits or otherwise of various players / formations and so on, are totally moot.

I just can't believe that 40 years (40 years....where did that go?!?!?!?!)...after Lou Macari took over in the aftermath of the infamous 'Beamish Line' season, we've come full circle and we're essentially back where we started ...and I wouldn't argue with anyone who said we're actually worse off...I feel like the Macari/Ardiles/Hoddle etc years were just a dream...very, very sad...
