Cotterill Favourite for Tranmere Job?

Cotterill Favourite for Tranmere Job?

According to reports in some of today's Sunday papers former Clarets gaffer, Steve Cotterill is favourite to take over the manager's job at Tranmere Rovers following the departure this week of John Barnes.

Barnes left Prenton Park this Friday after just four months and 14 games in charge. Tranmere have won just two of their eleven League games this season. The club are 22nd in League One and were knocked out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last Tuesday

Cotterill, 45, has been out of football management since he left Turf Moor by mutual consent in November 2007 although he has been linked numerous times with managerial opportunities. It is understood Rovers' chairman Peter Johnson sees Cotterill as the coach who can guide Tranmere to League One safety.

I have been saying for ages that it wouldnt be long before SC was back in work, but it has been longer than I thought! At Tranmere of course, he would be reunited with his jewel!

I Hope he gets the job, all Tranmere need to do is look at the team he built at Burnley.

Agree GC, most of our current squad still are Cotterill signings. I just wonder you know if Cotterill is just biding his time, maybe he doesn't want to rush back into the limelight? I assume financially he doesn't need to work and his income anyway is probably being suppemented by his TV pundit work at the moment

spot on that Grimsby. Tranmere appear to be conceding far to many goals and someone such as SC making them more solid is exactly what is needed. The only thing is, he cant bring in a Mcgreal & sinclair until January! are the players already there good enough with the correct coaching?

Not sure what Barnes did wrong, harsh to judge a gaffer after just 14 games in my opinion and their Board seem ruthless.Ronnie Moore was given the boot following Tranmere's failure to make the League One play-offs last season. Alan Mahon, Ian Moore and Michael Ricketts are currently at Prenton Pk!!!

Yeah 14 games does seem a little harsh - little time to make your mark. I was also surprised to see Ronnie Moore leave - I think he will probably lead Rotherham to promotion this season.

I too hope SC gets back into management soon and hope Ronnie Moore gets Rotherham up the league. In football I believe that there are some you wish well for and some you do the exact opposite! Talking of which if Trevor Francis is ever commentating on a game I turn the sound off....can't abide the bloke!

What we must think about is not how many games John Barnes was in charge of. He did have a pre season and never really won much in that either he wasn't used to football management in this country or this level. John Barnes is not a sucessful manager because he hasn't learned how to manage. If Burnley was in the same situation we would want it ended now rather than Christmas or beyond when it would be too late
