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

Dean Holden for me as think he’s got the most potential out of all the ones we could maybe attract. 

‘Other than that I don’t want a steady hand as we’ve been there and done that I would rather take a punt on Nolan or someone. 

I think our pot will be limited and players signed with no input from them also

Not sure why Holden would get the nod over Nolan, especially given Bristol would probably be due some compensation. Seems a bit of a hipsters choice.

Holden won two out of 10 in his short spell at Oldham. Nolan's won 40-odd out of 100. Holden will have picked up good experience from Lee Johnson I'm sure, but Nolan spent the better part of a decade as captain for the best manager we've ever had.

Add in more recent League 1/2 experience, being massively popular with the fans, well known and respected by most modern players and having a natural link to the current squad through Gary O'Neill and it's a no brainer for 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.

 

 

I know this aint going to be popular but i would stick coyle and megson in there even though they got very unpopular to the end of their reign.

Coyle got us the closest to what sam did in the prem and a cup semi.

 

Megson turned sammy lees mess about getting us away from relegation.

The next season he progress us up the table but his last season slagged the fans off and so had to go.

I’m trying to figure out who will get to him first. Casino for Coyle or Jules for Megson.

Can't be arsed, Edward 

But if I could, I'd be discussing where it went to shit. :)

Get what you are saying there.

Dougie's in the same bracket for me, went on that great run, brought in some decent signings, really treated us with Moritz and knew exactly how to control a game without the ball.

History will be kinder to Dougie than we were at the time.
