Its no longer an attractive job

Chris Hughton
Michael O'Neill 
Steve Bruce

Jonathan Hill could ask John Giles to give Paul Jewell another call.

Goodwin if we could afford to buy him out of his Aberdeen contract. I think he'd probably want the job. Carsley if he wanted a shot at senior football.

Michael O'Neill if people are happy to sacrifice football quality completely in favour of organisation that brings improved results. His style suits international football where there's limited time with the players, but it would be tough stuff to watch (though no tougher than what we're currently being subjected to). Hughton would bring a similar style but is probably past it at this stage.

McKenna at Ipswich but he'd be a nonstarter unfortunately, he's heading towards better things and he knows it. 

There's probably 50+ managers in the English lower leagues that would be an improvement on Kenny if we wanted to go down that road. Even watching Welcome to Wrexham recently the likes of Phil Parkinson would be miles ahead of Kenny, and he's managing in non-league, albeit it's a specific situation with him where there's financial backing to have him there.

Obviously the "names" like Roy Keane, Allardyce, Lurgan Flop etc are instant non-starters. No doubt they'd be up high in the early betting but that's meaningless in terms of actually getting the job.

Nobody cares if you engage in anything. LOL

Was just about to to post this.

Jim Goodwin or Michael O'Neill


I think Goodwin wouldn't touch it unfortunately. He's got a budding career going for him, he'd be mad to throw it away to come manage us.

In that case, we are looking at an older manager or damaged goods

Left field one, Vahid Halihodzic.


Was most recently manager of Morocco, he qualified them for this World Cup but was sacked after disagreements with the association.

Has also previously managed

Ivory Coast (Qualified them for the 2010 WC)

Algeria (Qualified them for the 2014 WC & reached the last 16 narrowly losing 2-1 in ET to Germany who then went onto hammer Brazil 7-1)

Japan (Qualified for the 2018 WC)

Seems to have a good track record but also seems to fall out with people nearly everywhere he goes LOL

If you squint hard enough then Ollie Horgan could pass for Vahid Halihodzic. I remember when he tried to square up to a fan in the markets field though the gowl deserved it and much more if stewards didn't step in

No f**king thanks. Callum Davidson is a more successful SPFL manager than Gerrard was.

Chris Wilder could be worth a punt. He might fancy a change of scenery
It would damage this forums' reputation

For me it's plain and simple, after the world cup offer Anthony Barry what ever he wants to become the Irish manager, even if that means he can keep his coaching role with Chelsea. 
Our best results under kenny came when Barry was actually running the show.
Anthony had us playing the best football and getting results since Mccarthys first tenure. 
He is the football brain we need to get the best out of our young crop.

Probably one of the best realistic or semi-realistic options.

Could Joe Biden be tempted? 
Someone in the other thread said Kenny is on more money than him.

Said before maybe the way Ghana has gone could be an option of head coach and someone that works above him even like Stan and Robinson before.

Probably easier to get a good young coach to come in and work as a head coach if they're allowed remain with their club side like Barry and Eustace did. Big issues obviously wages of hiring two people and a coaching staff plus the possibility the coach leaves mid campaign for a club job.
