Who would want either the Pompey or Brum jobs? The former are so full of entitlement and the latter a basket case. Having said that they will both have a sackful of applicants.

Someone off the managerial merry go round no doubt.

Looks like Lee Bowyer, having resigned from Charlton, is lined up for the Birmingham job.

Sometimes someone gets typecast in 'hard roles', and I'm not sure Bowyer should aim for that on his CV...

Birmingham may well be able to survive though, and Bowyer has done very well at Charlton.

Portsmouth is an attractive job though, a club with ambitions to go up with a passionate fan base. I don't like them but that will be a sought after gig.

I love listening to Bowyer’s post match interviews on Radio London, wears his heart on his sleeve, calls it as he sees it. Not sure some of the comments he makes about his players will go down well with them though!

I know that there are changes for clubs signing EU players.What are if any the changes in clubs employing coaches from EU countries?

Bowyer and Charlton were one of those matches that were made to happen and be (relatively) successful. I am not sure he will be able to replicate that at Brum. It's a basket case of a club off the field as were Charlton were when he took over ( and still are in many respects) so maybe those sort of clubs are his forte.

Former Huddersfield boss Danny Cowley, 43, is set to be appointed the new manager of League One side Portsmouth.

It's like clubs have stopped doing interviews and just make appointments using numbered balls, like the draw for the FA Cup.

Adkins is like eg "No.22 - Middlesbrough": often gets through a couple of rounds, but never going to win it.

Whereas Danny Cowley is more "No. 74 - Wycombe Wanderers": plucky non-league underdogs who managed to establish themselves at a higher level after a shock run to the Quarter Finals from non-league.

Meanwhile, Mick McCarthy is perfectly placed as "No. 31 - Cardiff City": was a winner in the distant past and if not so much of a threat these days, you still don't want to come up against him now.

Natives very restless in Newcastle, wonder if Chris Wilder might be a good fit

Not ONE Newcastle United fan criticising the players who have clearly thrown the towel in!
All the abuse for the manager as usual.

Don’t tell me that pulling out of the EU will put a stop to the compulsory post match interview with coaches who can’t speak English. My all-time favourite was Rainier, when he was the Chelsea Head Honcho. He announced to the tv audience that the reason for that particular match win was because at half time he told his players to ‘kick the ball forward’. Too much information ! Another amazement to me is their ability to convey their instructions to a selection of players that come from all over the globe, none of whom can understand a word!

Preston North End have confirmed manager Alex Neil has left the club after just one win in their past nine Championship matches.

Can't wait for the first Tweet suggesting he replaces Thomas Frank!

Who's going to step off the merry go round to take over.

Ah! The delights of the managerial merry go round! (and the payoffs that make these rubbish managers more rich than the 'stable' ones).

Alexander possibly, but Ainsworth wouldn't want to go to Preston, since they still haven't heard of Heavy Metal up there.

I mean, they're still trying to come to terms with Lonnie Donegan and all that new Skiffle nonsense.

Though tbf, they do have an award-winning Bus Station, so the commute could be manageable.

I think many Bees fans I've spoken to have a tale from a Preston away trip.
Definitely an odd place to visit.

This is no lie and no urban myth, but fairly recently when we won up there 3-1....3 of us got up there early, about 3 or 4 for an evening ko. Walked into a small empty pub, ordered 3 pints....older lady behind bar just stared back. I repeated the order with a sorry, in case my accent was a barrier....to be greeted with a cheery "f*** off, we don't serve cockneys".

We left.

I'm surprised about Alex Neil. They had a significant turnover of players in January, and their squad isn't anything special. The fact they've never been in anything like a relegation battle is something of an achievement.

I would say that I quite like their player Barkhuizen, and wouldn’t mind us signing him, but some know all will probably say that he is actually sh*te.

That’s when the pub windows need to go in. By mistake, of course.

He has a bit of a tendency to score against us I think. Not sure he’s as good against anyone else!

Went there many years ago when they had that plastic pitch. IIRC Paul Buckle scored that day. Couldn't wait to get out of there quick enough! Horrible area.

Can't even remember the score! Only the ball bouncing weirdly on the plastic pitch!
Use to hate going there, when they had it, the FA Cup tie at Oldham was a farce as well.

If its the 1-1, don't remember plastic pitch at Boundary Park.

Sorry, this personal conversation has gone off topic!

1991 lost 3-1.
Holdsworth gave us the lead early on.
We also had a mysterious goal disallowed.
It was so windy that the ball wouldn't stay still from set pieces.

Yes. Players having to lie down and hold the ball for free kicks.
Good turnout for us that day. Not quite sure why!

We were in the side stand that day, and a bit in the corner behind the goal
