'If It's Football, It's Vital'

So who takes control tomorrow?

I have said several times that it was my opinion that come what Steve Cotterill's reign as Pompey manager is almost certainly coming to an end...

Well, having postponed his pre-Barnsley press conference this has now been cancelled altogether - further fuelling speculation that his departure for Forest is moving closer.

Leave for Forest or not the lack of comment, from Cotterill and CSI, tends to make it 'highly unlikely' that he will be our manager too much longer, surely?

Given all that has gone on can Cotterill really be in charge tomorrow - if not then who will it be?

With all due respect to Stuart Gray I would prefer it if he was not turned to, I would guess - assuming he leaves - Cotterill would take him anyway though.

Quite if he could do this in a long-term, or if he even has the qualification needed, is open to debate but in a 'temporary basis', at least, I would quite like - as I mentioned briefly earlier in the week - Macca to be given a shot.

The guy talks the talk; why not give him a chance to walk the walk?

All this said perhaps the press conference was cancelled purely as all parties knew that all the questions would be about 'links' to Forest, and Bristol City, so it was thought best to cancel - then again with talks taking place with Forest it seems to be a little more than 'speculation' now...

I would have had Macca involved in the Club along time ago (and have said so for a while).....Don't know if he is manager material, but he speaks alot of sense about the game, and (altho only on radio) was obviously a good observer about the game, and what changes should be made and when (a bit of a shortfall for some!) He certainly has an affinity with the club and the fans and in my opinion would be better or at least as good as some of the "usual suspects" that are wheeled out at this time. PUP

As long as we've got Stuart Gray to keep him on the right tracks, I think Macca is a very sensible option. Like you said Barney, he reads the game so well, and always has suggestions that mirror those of the fans. Tactic wise, I can't think of anyone more suited, as he knows the game and the team inside out.
