In the Frame: Graeme Jones

In the Frame: Graeme Jones

Graeme Jones is the shock target to become Burnley`s new manager. Who says? None other than Alan Nixon in the Mirror so it must be true!

What do we know about Wigan's highly-rated No.2?

Well he has not exactly had an illustrious playing career. He was a striker in his playing days and lists amongst his clubs, Bridlington Town,Doncaster Rovers,Wigan Athletic,St. Johnstone,Southend United,Boston United,Bury,Clyde and finally Hamilton Academical.

His first move into management was as assistant manager at Hamilton Academical in 2006 after an injury curtailed his playing career. Jones then joined Swansea City in March 2007, taking the assistant manager position. He followed gaffer, Roberto Martinez to Wigan in June 2009 once again being second-in-command. It is thought the 42 year old now wants to go it alone but he did actually turn down the chance to become manager of former club, Swansea in the summer.

Accrding to Nixon, Burnley could also have the following on their shortlist:

Stuart McCall(Motherwell)

Michael Appleton (­Portsmouth)

Graham ­Alexander

I have said I think we could see someone random get the job - Maybe it is Jones? I would assume he would want to play 'football' which would be a good thing. I wonder what the stats would be on asst managers then going to take a job as number 1. Does it normally work?

Well thought of at Swansea , and played a big part in helping Martinez to develop the Swans' passing game . As for the move from assistant to manager , well that's the gamble and as always it could go either way.

Alan Nixon's track record as being god is probably better than Coyle's. So this rumour may have legs. A different set of skills and behaviours are required for being number two and number one. But you can find examples of those who made the transition and those who didn't. Brain Kidd didn't. Carrot top had major successes and major failures. Phelan doesn't want to find out. How would you assess Jimmy Adamson? Or Mourinho?
