Another One Bites the Dust-Steve Clarke!

Another One Bites the Dust-Steve Clarke!

Steve Clarke was believed to be on Burnley's short-list to become our new manager at Turf Moor.

Well if so another potential manager has just bitten the dust.

The former Chelsea assistant manager and West Ham coach has today been appointed first team coach under Kenny Dalglish at Liverpool.

It is not clear if the 47 year old was ever approached by the Clarets or indeed if he was on their short-list of about six targets.

What now seems to be clear is we are running out of options unless we can get permission to speak to Watford's Malky MacKay.

Eddie Howe and Derek McInnes seem to be our other targets at the moment but both those do not have any Championship pedigree.

I wonder if a 47-year-old who has coached at some pretty high levels and who has now accepted another high-level coaching job actually wants to become a manager. Maybe he did at one stage of his life. But the step from coach to manager at age 47 is a big one. Has Steve applied for any previous manager jobs? If not, why not? If he has, why wasn't he appointed? The question about Hodgson would be one of where his head is at the moment, especially given his being close to what has been the customary retirement age. Age should be no barrier, but is the fire in his belly? If it is, I wonder if Fulham are thinking about firing Sparky and getting Roy back at the Cottage. Might that put Sparky on our radar? But why has he done so much less well at Fulham than Roy did?

Can see where you're coming from tmp with Megson would he be accepted by the fans?, nice shout ssc don't think he will be looking for a job until the compo is sorted. As for Clarke do you really think he was on the short list, i do think we approached big Sam but he will be waiting for a Prem job only manager who as not been linked with BFC is Mike bassett.

I really don't know anymore, Fed Up but I do wish Burnley would sort it out quickly. Both Preston and it now looks like Ipswich have sorted it already (Jewell being lined up at Portman Rd?)

I'd rather Kilby takes his time and get the right man for the job, lets have a fresh start and would not have a problem with a young and up coming manager. Really didnt fancy Brown or Jewell but can understand why you would employ them.

Here's another joke, hollins. If Kenny and Steve lose at Blackpool on Wednesday, and then to Everton at the weekend, maybe they'll both be considering the Burnley position a week today. Look at it this way, lose those games and things at Anfield certainly could start to get bloody.

What happens if we decide to stay with Gray. I get the horrible feeling the club are preparing us for that by getting players like Eagles to come out and suggest he is a great manager and has the support of the players. Let's say he's in charge come QPR and we lose and continue to play like plonkers. What then?
