'I would prefer 'AN Other' as Pompey's next manager', not my vote, yours - although these findings from pompeyrug's poll are thoughts that I just do not know what to make of to be honest...
The names in the poll, were the ones 'linked', albeit by the media at the time, but it appears that other than David James none of these are really appealing to anyone?
I cannot say that any name is really jumping up and down and shouting 'pick me, pick me', then again as I keep saying I cannot see HOW we can appoint a new manager until we know the outcome of the CVA, and who our owner will be - out of Rob Lloyd's lot, which is doubtful, or Balram Chainrai, which is almost 'nailed on' for me...
It just does not seem 'feasible' that we can appoint a new manager until we know the outcome of the CVA and actually have an owner in place.
Part of me wants James, as I really think we need to keep the guy next season - the 10-20pts that he would save us could make all the difference, and a player-manager role gives us more chance. Although 'if' it all ended in tears we not only lose our manager but also a player, as how could he then revert to being a player again? A player-coach position seems ideal?
A 'new name' entering the fray today is Paul Ince, please God NO! Then again Brendon 'I am desperate to work again' Rodgers fills me with little more optimism than 'The Guv'nor' to be honest.
Although Steve Cotterill will become the 'odds on favourite' now, due to the fact that he has left Notts County. Plymouth 'Green Army' Argyle are also 'interested' though, and despite being a league one club, and not without their problems too, can offer more stability and an instant job.
Whatever, I would not expect a 'quick appointment', then again with Pompey anything is possible!
