Flynn would be about as bad a fit with this squad as you could imagine. Perhaps that's not a bad thing.

Wasnít he the one that turned Twine into a footballer?

Being played regularly probably did that.

Given we aren't going to be big spenders as-is, think Garrard as an appointment makes the most sense. Gets more out of players than their ability usually suggests and makes his team's hard to beat. Pretty dull football but it's a results based business.

So anyone coming in now (apart from those still here) will not have a clue regarding the squad, players thrmselves will be looking around at where they stand, all in all total bloody shambles.

I think he managed a decent cup run or 2 as well.

I would actually rather we do take some time now - it's the one occasion in recent history where that would be the right course of action instead of taking time when there was no need to.

Instead, sort the fucking clubs operational and footballing structures out.  Determine what will and what won't be invested in off the pitch, work out the plan in terms of what type of squad and budget we will be using etc.

Then recruit someone that fits, but who will be backed to deliver that, and not have their hands tied by someone else having recruited and sold everyone.

I still don't have a problem with the "Model" - just work out what that really means and back it properly and with a healthy dose of short term pragmatism.  Don't put a nobody in charge of Football Ops, don't add a Manager with no experience of first team management (or nobody they can lean on with it), don't say we are investing in youth and literally just buy young players with no actual investment in the supporting infrastructure planned.

I wouldn't be against given Garrard his league start as both a player and manager. Only problem is we'll be needing to pay compo, which doesn't seem overly realistic given our lack of pot to piss in.

See, we won't be able to get someone like him, but a lower level version is precisely who I'd be looking at for the Head of Football Ops role if we want to keep that.  Someone with experience but no longer wanting the stress of Managing.  Someone who can guide a less experienced Head Coach if need be, but also knows what is needed behind the scenes to set the club up for success.

Agreed!

Thereís a couple of clubs at our level looking - Tranmere, Walsall. Anyone off of the previous list would be unlikely, surely.

Crewe fans reckon any new club for Artell would have to accept a season or 2 floundering in mid table before he produced. If thatís true, thatís him out.

Presuming the Ďmodelí has also been ditched.

Iíd go for Darrell Clarke.

Good shout
