    Wish him well have no ill feeling towards McCall so best of luck to him.

    Lets be honest its going to be someone on the dole so Adams its going to be more than likely cheap and cheerful and just got sacked at bottom of the table Ross County!

    For me i would try to get Coyle might work for both of us or cheeky punt and this is pure fantasy Davie Weir with big Duncan Ferguson as his 2nd.

    Dont think with current set up at the club its going to be a bit left field like before so good chance it will be Admas,Calderwood someone like that.

    I really hope it's not Adams or leitch. I would like to see Owen Coyle get the job but i think money may be a problem. The board have to get this one right this time. There's no room for error.

    When people were calling for McCall to do the decent thing and stand down I thought right ok so if Stuart did go who would I want as our manager. I came up with zeros because I genuinely thought we had the man for the Job as our manager.
    We can't go for an inexperienced manager at the moment. We need a craig brown figure to step in and get us to the end of the season. I now this would probably not go down well but if Mark McGhee was up for coming back for the rest of this season I would bite your hand off.

    I like Scott Leitch and he's a cracking guy. But, he's already left us twice so I wouldn't want him as manager. We need someone with managerial experience and a decent track record.

    Why not someone from an inferior foreign league who's done well and would jump at the chance of a bigger job?

    All the merchants of doom will say otherwise, but a few bigs will apply.

    I agree with you. When Stuart McCall was getting pelters, I asked this very question on here. No one could give a of a better manager, who would take the job.

    We're in danger of losing overall perspective here, in a cloud of sentimentality. There's no doubt that Stuart McCall left with a lot of dignity and integrity and for that he has to be commended. No arguments from me there.

    However many of us thought that it was time to for him to go. If you think we were being unfair or hasty then consider his email. After the Hamilton CIS Cup game his spirit and belief that he could turn the team around was broken. He thought that he co

    Daily Express and BBC report that "Former Watford head coach Billy McKinlay, former Celtic and West Brom assistant Mark Venus, former Hearts manager Csaba Laszlo, former Stevenage boss Gary Smith and former Iceland coach Atli Evaldsson have put theirs forward to succeed Stuart McCall at Motherwell."

    How many of us would have come up with thoses a few days ago?

    Some interestings getting thrown up and some I would definitely not have in the dugout.

    Big Tel did well when he was first here, but he's had his time and he took Hibs down last year from a stronger position than what we are in at the moment.

    Also not sure about Danny Lennon.

    McKinlay certainly seems rated as a coach but his actual managerial experience is limited.

    At our level there is no such thing as an appointment without some downside or risk.

    Unless we go for Danny Lennon, in which case it is all downside obviously :-)

    We should go for somebody who is looking to showcase their ability to improve a squad through quality coaching, attracting agents and be a natural motivator who will move on to a bigger gig in a few years time.

    Anybody just looking for a job based on passed experience (read: all ex-spl managers), should be discounted immediately.

    I see Billy Stark has resigned from the Scotland set-up... Is he one of the 40 applicants, one wonders?
