I would like Grayson - purely on his record of 4 promotions from League One.

But like keyser says, I can't see us getting him. He is very much not the type of candidate that PW would look at. I doubt Pete is going to hire someone with a similar style of football to Neilson, as well as being an older manager.

Think Micciche is definitely the type of risk Pete wants to take.


Can Pete afford to take yet another "risk" though ?

RDM was a risk - it worked
Robbo was a risk - it worked
RN was a risk - failed spectacularly

Given we are in a relegation scrap now, surely we need an experienced man in ?


Micciche will be the riskiest by a long mile. RDM was a risk but had been involved in professional football and started with a confident and well coached team that had just won promotion. Robbo had been a coach at the Liverpool Academy, he had been ours and a Blackburn coach (when they were famous). Micciche has no experience of professional football, hasn't been a youth coach at a leading club nor a coach at a national league 1 team. I can't see anything riskier than the daft idea in the past of Clive Woodward. Even Hope was less risky and had some results as evidence.


Wasn't he a coach at Spurs?


Well spotted, I didn't realise that, not that it changes my mind. Robbo added to his Liverpool Academy by coaching the senior sides. I also note that he wasn't the Academy manager here, but Assistant Academy manager.


I would be disappointed and feel underwhelmed if it was Micciche...maybe one for the future, but really is not what the club needs right now.

No facts, just a strong gut feeling - we will NOT be hiring Grayson. I doubt he wants it; I doubt Pete wants him.

I have seen it said that Grayson would prefer to wait for another Championship opportunity.
However I wonder if a short term appointment (along the lines of Warnick at Rotherham) might suit them both?
Now is not the time for Pete to go for one of his usual appointments. But - if we stay up that might be an option for next season.
It would put Grayson back in work and offer an opportunity for e.g. Rubio or Lewie to gain senior team experience alongside a proven League 1 manager.
Just a thought.

Are you after an early nomination for most optimistic poster?

I have read a few articles this morning saying that Grayson has been offered the job and will make a decision in the next 24/48 hours.

Nah all just media rumour.

One site had his tweet in their artical and said he had been offered the position but did not back this up with any fact or evidence

What goes down must come up....ohhh Betty. No I Am really really hoping it's Greyson. 4 promotions 2 with clubs who had little to no budgets. He knows League one inside and out. I hope we do the right thing. Even if we have to pay a little bit more surely it is worth it in the long term.
