    If Bruce gets the boot

    who do you think will get the job?
    Remember it was offered to 10 other people before Bruce who all turned it down.
    So we will only get someone with no experience or someone who is over the hill / underserving of the job.

    That is how Ashley likes to work and get complete loyalty from his managers, he hires people who should be nowhere near the job and are then ultimately in his debt and always toe the line. Rafa being the one exception.

    Tony Mowbray is the latest name to be brought up as a front runner

    Id give Lee Clarke a chance above any of the Curbishley, Mowbray lot

    not sure to be honest, i don't think him or Chris Wilder were even asked at the time.

    Allardyce, O'Leary, Martinez, Bob Bradley, Vieria, Arteta, Gerrard, definitely were.

    Bruce wasn't even considered initially, i heard he approached the club after Vieria turned it down, shows how dire our club is from top to bottom.

    I can see the club going for someone with no experience, following the trend, Lampard, Gerrard, Rooney, Arteta have all been give a chance.

    If they decide to get rid of Bruce, i can see an approach to Coloccini. John Terry is eager to cut his teeth and he was a rumour but Ashley likes to make us think he's given us something, you watch, Coloccini will be the next manager

    I can also see him going for Fat Sham again, he was at the game yesterday taking it all in.

    It will be just another yes man as usual, the dream appointment for me would be Duncan Ferguson he would be great Ashley would never come out of his office Obviously it would never happen though with Ashley still owner.

    Duncan Ferguson would "stroke" Ashley's chin if Ashley dared to disagree with him.

    I think it'll be Mark Hughes personally.

    No logic, just a gut feeling.

    I think we'd quite like that, John...therefore it'll never happen.
