It is always a shame I think for guys like this. He’s has a secure job there for 17 odd years and is now likely to be gone in 2 if he’s lucky.
If he wants to play safe, he could stop at being interim boss. But i guess he himself has decided to follow his dreams and go for it.
Fair play and good luck to him....no-one is pushing him into this....

Stopping at Interim boss could be anything but "safe".

For when a new guy comes in, he often wants his own guy alongside him on the bench, leading to the demotion of the interim boss in effect, if not in name.

In addition, new managers don't want to keep people at the club who could easily step in again on an interim basis, should he (new manager) go through a sticky patch.

I was reading about Jimmy Case the other day. When Ian Branfoot took over at Southampton, the first thing he did was to sell Case to Bournemouth before the week was out, since Case was hugely popular at the Dell and was mooted as a possible future manager. (In need of a hard man replacement, Branfoot signed one Terence Alan Hurlock...)

And both are nutters
I was amazed by Pearson's lack of (EFL Championship) knowledge when he was a guest on Quest the other weekend.

He needed Dean Ashton to interject to explain Stoke's laboured displays and poor run were a consequence of losing Tyrese Campbell......and then droned on about Muff moving on from Howe and Tindall, ignoring the fact the Woodgate was almost a glove fit in terms of his coaching philosophy.

They've probably seen what McCarthy's done at Cardiff and visualised a similar fit working for them.

Looks like Neil Lennon will finally leave Celtic tomorrow. Too bloody late as far as some of us are concerned...

He's gone, that's such a shame, I was hoping that as he's doing such a great job they'd extend his contract! Oh well big Sam will be looking for another gig soon, so perhaps he'll land up there.

Maybe Lampard? Going up against Gerrard might be interesting.

Colchester United have dismissed Head Coach Steve Ball after this evening's home loss to Exeter City extended their winless run to 13 games.

I don't buy that the Celtic board will care whatsoever about Lampard going up against Gerrard...so I doubt it's going to have an impact on that decision.

I think Lennon moving on was the right move for all though.

Wherever Lampard goes next, he has to get it right for the sake of his CV.

It worked for Brendan Rodgers, but he was lucky that Rangers had only just come back up, so weren't then in a position to challenge Celtic (finished 3rd, in fact). Besides which, he was far more experienced.

Personally I reckon whoever gets the Celtic gig would ideally need money to make an immediate impact vs Rangers, and with Celtic failing in Europe again this season (plus Covid obv), I'm not sure they'll have that much. Meaning whoever takes over may instead need to be experienced and know Scottish football.

Curiously enough, when they were younger, Gerrard used to be thought a Celtic fan, and Lampard Rangers!

Colchester United have appointed Wayne Brown as interim first-team coach after Steve Ball's sacking on Tuesday.

Ex-U's player Brown, 43, is the manager of Isthmian League North Division side Maldon & Tiptree but their season is suspended because of the pandemic.

Owner Robbie Cowling saying he is not looking for "any other applicants at this time" and he wants "to give Wayne every opportunity to succeed"
.
Colchester appoint Brown as interim boss

...from Chelsea.....to that lot.....I think not me 'ol mate........like to think he's got a little bit more self respect than that:sneakoff:
Scotland manager Steve Clarke, 57, and former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, 43, are among the favourites to replace sacked Neil Lennon at Celtic.

Eddie Howe didn’t like Burnley, let alone going north of the border to Glasgow and Celtic!!!

For what it is worth I think Eddie Howe will replace Roy at Crystal Palace at the end of the season. Hodgeson's contract is up at the end of the season and it appears there are no moves to extend the contract.

Hodgson is in his 70's now, so they will probably look for someone younger.
Howe is a good shout.

That implies they've just sacked him with 11 months left on it surely? Not very well planned if so.
Not sure how it works.

He's had 8 games since his 1 year anniversary (07 Jan).

Results (most recent first) were L L D D D L L W
The last 8 games up to 06 Jan were not that much better: W W L L L W L L

I have heard a whisper that Sean Dyche will replace Hodgson. Let's see. Does he want a fresh challenge? How is he getting on with Burnley's new owners? Who knows...

Will no doubt turn up somewhere else.

Scotland?

Steve Clarke to Celtic?
He was on a very long contract so you wonder if he’s waived his payout because it’s been indicated he has a shot at the Celtic job.

Paul Cook going to Ipswich, who are about to be bought by a US owner.
