Ding Dong Laws has gone. Lets celebrate. Managers I would like are in employment and unlikely to come to Burnley. I think we will go for someone cheap again, another pound shopm manager

I think we need someone animated, someone who looks passionate in front of the dugout. We need someone who can motivate players and get them to punch above their weight with belief. Aye OK someone in the Coyle-mode!! Really excited now, cant wait to see who we get. Don't think the Board will make the same cheapskate decision again!

Eddie Howe looks a good bet if we want to see attractive football played at the Turf. He is similar to Coyle by all accounts but hopefully with a smaller head!!

Hughton for me, but whoever we get I just hope he's got the 'Coyle' factor. Otherwise we'll be back to 'wotsisname out' before we know it. Someone once said 'you can't please all the people all the time' but the new man has got to appeal to a broad spectrum.

Howe is a good shout. Clark? McInnes? Funny how those calling for Laws to leave now have unrealistic and/or no ideas who to get in. "Be careful what you wish for..." Personally, I think Brown will get it, as he is (allegedly) a friend of Flood's. O'Driscoll I think would not come - he recetly turned down The Blades AND, having spoken out about our facilities, may not be welcomed by the board - nevermind the fans. Interesting times...
