    The reason we know about Flynn is because he manages a Welsh side. It doesn't mean that he isn't doing a good job or anyone who suggests him is being anglophobic. It just means we know as much about League One and League Two as we do the Armenian League or even Serie A.....pretty much nothing.

    Your average football fan (and I include myself in that) knows very little about sides that aren't their own. How many Bristol City players can you name ? We played them last week but most of us would probably struggle to name half the first team.

    I know for fact that Flynn has taken County to the play-off final and to the latter stages of the FA cup on a shoestring budget. He kept them up when they looked stuffed and has had them finishing in the top half of the table for the last three seasons and is continuing to do well this season. County are 3 or 4 points off top spot.

    Nobody can guarantee he'd be a success and frankly, if you offered me someone like Bilic or Flynn , I'd take Bilic, but we don't appear to be in the market for anyone of that calibre so, from the lot that have been touted , I'd be happy to have Flynn at the club.
    My point is that if he wasn't Welsh and managing a club down the road I don't think you'd be banging the drum so hard for him, and in fact I don't think he'd be in the conversation. Personally I want a bit more ambition from the club than picking the guy who's Welsh and down the road and doing alright two divisions below us.

    And for the record, in case Tan's reading, I don't want Vardan Minasyan either

    I don't know, to Delmbox's question about whether we would be looking at Flynn if he was manager at Colchester, but you look at what Newport were when he took over and what they've done since then and he has a very good CV as a manager.

    Now it seems to me that, apart from last night's meaningless game, Newport appear to be a pretty dull side to watch this season and, although I've heard it said that Flynn mixes up his tactical approach, they've always played what looks very like Warnockball to me. However, if we appoint Neil Harris and he comes here and he has us playing like Millwall did under him, then why not go for Flynn? In fact why not offer Warnock the job back, because his record is better than both of them?

    Do they play differently now then? Theyíve hoofed it every time Iíve seen them.
    What has the fact he lost the game got to do with it? Managers whinged at Warnockball after losing as well, are we going to say it wasnít warnockball now and those managers were wrong because they lost?

    League 2 managers have far more intimate and technical knowledge of the game than us fans. Let's not be snobbish.
    So itís all hoofball in league 2?

    Yes one down, one to go. If Flynn or Bowyer were in the running, something would have sneaked out from another club about us making an approach. So I think it's going to be someone who currently is not at a club......or unemployed as I call it!

    Pretty sure Iíve answered this somewhere already...

    Jokanovic - seems a step too far for us though if heís earning a bit out in Qatar atm. Also seems to like a budget and high wage recruits (at least at Fulham, canít remember his spending at Watford)

    Nathan Jones - Went wring for him at Stoke but Iíd give him a chance here, did well at Luton and they didnít hoof the ball to escape the lower leagues. Iíd give him a chance here definitely.

    Lee Bowyer - Wouldnít rush out to get him but Iíd welcome his style, seems to work well w it h his players and does well in the transfer market too, seen it said plenty heís a good man manager.


    Diego Martinez- My never gonna happen shout.

    Hold my hands up and admit Iíve not seen them play but what he has done is impressive and goes further than just work on the pitch.
    Probably get swallowed alive over here though as the footballs completely different.


    You?

    Another one. Didnít Jimmy the Jock sat mother well played more football than us and the Jacks when he watched them after our shower of shit against the jacks the other week?

    Probably a risk, and his football probably doesnít work all the time (even better teams like arsenal struggle to pass out under pressure I suppose) but itís another name Iíd take over a hoofball merchant.

    So you'd have Nathan Jones or Bowyer then.

    I'd take Nathan Jones, even though I suspect your favourite football manager could have done a better job than him at Stoke tbf.

    Bowyer . Not the type of character I'd like to have representing my club.

    Me?

    Nathan Jones.

    Craig Bellamy.

    Mark Hughes.

    Javi Gracia.

    Frank de Boer.


    Mark Hughes is unfashionable but I think he would get results and I think his football is more attractive than Warnock's. Gracia might be an option if you threw money at him and gave him some cash to spend. I don't mind Hughton either. Not exciting but a solid option. Frank de Boer has a decent CV.
