    Yes but based on nothing. Bookmakers love a new manager market. On average there are at least three odds-on favourites before the actual appointment is made.

    Re: Warnocks Replacement.

    I've been saying all season that a midtable finish but using the time to set a longer term plan in motion would consitute a successful season so now have some concerns that we're being forced into action rather than planning it out. I don't think that's ideal and is going to be real test for Dalman and co to get the right fit for what we want to do now and next.

    Considering some of the successful managers we have seen recently (Sean Dyche had one season of experience with Watford finishing midtable in Championship, David Wagner was reserve team manager at Dortmund, Chris Wilder was found in league 2) and some of the not so successful appointments (Nathan Jones at Stoke after such a successful time at Luton, Marco Silva currently at Everton, Julen Lopetegui at Real Madrid) then hopefully our fans give the new man time and don't judge too positively or harshly based on what they haven't or have done elsewhere.

    i) West Brom tried to change too much midseason and went down. Progression rather than revolution would see us right.

    ii) It won't be Bellamy. It might have been but his name has too recently been linked to poor behaviour in terms of coaching young players and no experienced business owner would invite the stink that would follow his appointment at this time. Maybe in the future but not now.

    iii) It won't be Bamba simply because he'll either want to do a player-manager role and that won't work in first job at this level or it will leave us short of defenders. He may be part of a caretaking unit or a coach under next manager but he won't be the next manager.

    The issue is do the board ever plan anything? Warnock just happened to be available after poor managerial appointments post Mackay where Cardiff ended up with Trollope and his failed experiment that had Cardiff staring relegation in the face. Warnock was the ideal fit to sort out the club, and achieved well beyond expectation. Unfortunately for him his managerial career with Cardiff should have ended with a 2-0 away win at Old Trafford as opposed to a home defeat to rivals Bristol City.

    I hope they find someone who is the right fit and can instill some quality into the side. But honestly not holding my breathe.

    Has Ole been sacked yet. He'd definitely play the kind of football people here have been crying out for .

    in fairness i posted earlier today regarding warnocks potential christmas time departure didnt think it would be this soon but thats the thing... maybe someone could caretake until christmas or early jan... many a manager leaves there respected positions around that time and there would be more potential on offer ?

    I think having such low expectations of the board lets them off the hook a bit too much; Dalman has nearly been with us 7 years now and given that Warnock described him as "the best chairman I've worked with" I don't think it's too much to ask that they plan something. It might not be successful, and it may be rushed more than they would have liked, but these are not owners/board members who have just took an interest in football last year. Pre-Warnock may have been a learning curve but they should not be so ready to jump into short-term'ism this time around.
