I'm just pleased at the managers on the shortlist. I'd be happy with anybody on there, and completely elated if we got Bilic, Mancini or Donadoni.

Did your mother-in-law speak with a strange accent... an Italian/french/croatian one? :think:

THAT'S ONLY BECAUSE WE HAD HOBSONS CHOICE.

Honestly can you imagine what the Mancs would say if Taggart retired and thats the shortlist for them to pick from. What have that lot won combined as managers. Some have never even BEEN f***ing managers. We are being run as a shambles and true to form they will pick the new boss along the same lines. They might as well go for a fourth rate guy, just to even it out so we can say its the same from TOP to BOTTOM.


What have they won? Mancini has three back to back Serie A titles doesnt he? Bilci took the smallest country to make the finals to within seconds of qualifying for the Euro 2008 semi

Well Donadoni looks like the favorite now, as Mancini has been reported to drop out, i voted for Mancini and now it looks like hes not going to be the manager, a large percentage of fans all feel the same as i do and would prefer Mancini over Donadoni, but im sure he would be a good mansger for us.

Whats this about Mancini dropping out of the running? Only really want him or Bilic. Apparently Zola's interview went well today... would definately be the ''yes man'' the board would want :x

Manuel Pellegrini seems to fit the bill IMO

Otherwise my preference in this order

Gus Hiddink (can't afford him??)
Roberto Mancini
Slaven Bilic
Roberto Donadoni

Di Canio should be given a coaching role

Just looking at oddschecker now and every bookie is bringing the odds on Bilic in. They're drifting across the board for everyone else except Donadoni - seems to be a third in a third out and a third static with him.

Yes a strange accent but not one you mention. Also every sentence is ended with a hideous cackle.

Also she does has a strange stare with one of eyes half closed. Anyway I am rambling on .......

For a club supposedly short of money we are being linked with some world class coaches.
Mancini for me.

Have seen this quote on a few sites tonight this one is from Sporting Life site...

A top-level club source said: "Zola not only has impressive credentials but also came across incredibly well in our talks."

Money for Bilic on the betting exchanges tonight.
