Blackburn have appointed Sam Allardyce as their new manager.
Who does that leave for us?
Our Nigel – if the step up from League One to Championship is too much for CC why would Nigel be able to make an even bigger leap? Plus there are many rumours that he dislikes the club for how the board treated Sir Brian.
Roy Keane – did well at saving Sunderland in the Championship. But would he want to come back here and would we let him, given his departure?
Neil Warnock – he obviously has a soft spot for Forest and is a great manager; provided he’s on your side and not the opposition’s. But would we accept his dirty tricks and style of play?
Billy Davies – did well at Preston and at first at Derby (I reckon he was shafted by their board a bit). But not popular with either sets of fans now, which probably tells a tale.
Paul Ince – I think he’s got the makings of a great manager … one day.
Johnson, Martinez, Coppell – never gonna happen
Brian Laws – see above
Colin Calderwood – better the devil you know?
