Realistically, Paul Cook, Danny Cowley. Graham Alexander, although he wouldn't be my choice.
Interesting. He’s never finished as high as Neil has in the Championship but has spent more money.Paul Cook would be excellent pick up but feels like he'll wait for a club with decent budget to come in. He spent a decent amount at Wigan after all before it all went tits up for them.
If Plastics sacked Mowbray he'll probably fancy that job over this one.
Just to go a bit further than this, since we went top at Charlton, we have 39 points in 36 games. 5 clean sheets in that period, failed to score in 15 of those games. It's relegation form.
We've a lot of experienced players now in this league, the manager isn't getting anywhere near the best out of them.
By all accounts, that's Hemmings' dream scenario, but there's a real danger that Neil's stock will fall if results don't pick up.Cant see Alex Neil being sacked...more likely to leave for another club. Sacking season starts soon and Xmas is coming up but plenty of time left. Some of the players are playing below par. Scott Sinclair had a blinding 2nd half via Brentford today he was hardly in the game . Same with Pearo.
I doubt AN's stock will suffer too much. His suitors will know he's been working miracles on a shoestring budget, and he's managed in the PL. And he's only 39. Still a young manager on the up in broader terms.Nobodys going to be chasing Neil when you consider how many games are available to see on tv and the consistent TRIPE we have been producing !!
To be fair I'd bet AN has a better chance of making it to the prem than us.I doubt AN's stock will suffer too much. His suitors will know he's been working miracles on a shoestring budget, and he's managed in the PL. And he's only 39. Still a young manager on the up in broader terms.
