I think of all the possible names mentioned, Dean Holden sounds best, considering pretty much all of them are massive punts.

Hopefully that's not rhyming slang.

Dean Holden would be my choice too but it all depends on whether he's ready for a move back. If he's up for it he's probably been around enough now to do a decent job.

Before we got Rioch I wanted Dario Gradi. I think we should go for him, as we need some better PR.

Lived in Rochdale for yonks and saw a lot of Dale over the years, especially in that spell that led to first promotion from L2, as has been said, never had any money but oversaw great work in the acad

Just heard from The Bantry Club on Derby St, that a well known local sauce company have been successful in their bid, with the proviso that the new manager plays five up front. It’s a clear case

Fortunately not, and yeah, it'd all depend on whether he fancies the step up too. Even though it could end up being a write off season, I don't think anyone wants to see another Sammy Lee type come in. 

Just think out of the names mentioned, the set up he's been involved in looks best overall, and you'd hope he's been learning from that.

If it’s Nolan would be better if he may be had an experienced number 2 with him some old head might work well . There was talk of a director of football role being made when FV first came on the scene think it was warburton now at QPR mentioned

We've only had about 4 really decent managers  in nearly 50 years imo.

Armfield

Greaves

Rioch

Allardyce

Maybe sling Toddy into the mix.

Maybe I'm being too sentimental, but I think Parky deserves an honorary mention in that list, even if it's just for his dedication and professionalism under the worst possible circumstances.

Isn't it the perfect time? We're going down so a year to build a team for next season and find your feet.

I'd argue its the perfect time for a younger manager - no pressure, no expectancy and a group of fans who are united again and not looking to criticize.

Agree 👍

Really decent bloke yes, but a really decent manager?

Maybe a honorary mention for Phil Neal?, he did help rebuild the team, brought some good players in and got us out the 4th division.

We'll never know what he could have done in better circumstances. He was basically working with his hands tied behind his back for most of his time here. The fact he stuck with it for so long elevates him in my opinion. As I said, I'm probably being too sentimental. It's been an emotional few days.

True. Even  Rioch and Allardyce would have struggled under Sweatys ownership.

I love Nolan, but I'd go with Keith Hill this time, he's got a lot of experience at this level

You can't really go with a young, unproven manager when you've got no squad and -11 pts

Of course you can. Why you think a proven manager would doo any better with no money? We got fuck all to lose any up and coming will be ok with me.

Yes, I think you’re right with that list, but what order would you put them?

1, Sam - he achieved success at the highest level.

2, Rioch - 3 fantastic years, brilliant football, such a shame he didn’t stay and carry it on in the prem.

3, Greaves - superb football at div 2 level but struggled in div 1.

4, Todd - justified inclusion for the ‘record’ season alone & superb football.

5, Armfield - good football but never managed us above div 3.

Yeh i'd go along with that. I just put them in chronological order.
