Let The Manager Talk Commence

Let The Manager Talk Commence

Brian Laws has only been out of the Wednesday manager's hotseat for 24 hours - but rumours of the next Owls manager are already in full flow.

Nigel Worthington, Steve Cotterill, Steve Coppell and Alan Curbishley are amongst the list of names mentioned with the vacant manager position at Hillsborough.

They're the usual list of candidates should a job become available at this level - a list that comes out regardless of the club involved, or the situation they're in.

Even Kevin Keegan and Neil Warnock have been linked with the position, but I doubt either will come anywhere close to S6 anytime soon.

Former Wednesday defender Worthington and former Burnley boss Cotterill seem to be the early frontrunners according to media reports, and expect more names to follow in the next few days.

In the meantime, Sean McAuley will be given the job of steering Wednesday to three vital points against Swansea City this weekend.

McAuley had success as an interim manager last time out, and could well be one of the favourites for the job on a permanent basis this time should he repeat his success.

One thing's for sure, the talk is set to hot up this week - make sure you keep logging on to Vital Sheffield Wednesday for all the latest news.

I can't see Curbushly coming but Coppell may well be a good bet. All the talk seems to be of Worthington and he has said he is keen and available, so this looks very possible, though I ma not sure he is right for us. Whoeveer comes, it needs to be soem one that can spot a player and develop him. This is where we have fallen down recently. I am not too sure that manager with a big reputation will want to put that on the line at Hillsborough right now!

I don't think Cotterill or Worthington are right for us. Coppell for me without a doubt.

I know but he would not have left if was not for Richards and i think he would be good motivator and loads of passion, its better than Warnock but my money on Worthington

I know what you mean Olly, but this is the real world. We need someone that can see talent. I honestly think that Laws was pretty good when he was working with Sturrocks team and we did show improvement. The problem is that the players he has brought in have simply not looked good enough. Maybe they were just badly coached, but I don't think so. All of the players that we have bought in from other champioship clubs were squad players for other teams. There is defnatley talent out there, but we have not been finding it. Why on earth would Curbs risk his reputation, when we are not in a position ot pay him anything like what he will end up getting elsewhere? Copell looks perfect to me. But I would not be unhappy to see Keith Hill join us.
