Shortlist Narrowed For Owls Post

Shortlist Narrowed For Owls Post

Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric has revealed that he currently has a shortlist of four potential new managers following the sacking of Alan Irvine

Mandaric has moved quickly to try and get a replacement for the departing Irvine and could even have a new man in place before this Saturday's npower League One clash against MK Dons at Hillsborough.

It was announced that Irvine has left his post today following a meeting with Mandaric last night.

It's believed that the Owls chairman has already approached some managers who are currently in jobs to take the vacant position at S6.

Notts County boss Paul Ince is one name linked with a move to Wednesday.

Mandaric tried to get Ince as his manager at Leicester City before the former Manchester United player was offered the chance to manage in the Barclays Premier League with Blackburn Rovers.

Gary Megson, who was manager of the Foxes before leaving for Bolton Wanderers, is also being mentioned as Irvine's possible replacement.

Rob Kelly and Billy Barr have been put in temporary control of first team affairs at the club.

Well I reckon you could throw a hat over all four candidates (of the names mentioned) and pick any because there are no 'stand-out' candidates. Maybe MM is going to surprise us with big name capture?!

Let's hope so Don. MM took Harry Redknapp to Portsmouth after Harry had done a stand up job at West Ham and been forced out prematurely. Perhaps MM should look to the ranks of managers currently without a club? O'Neil, Allardyce, Keane, Megson etc rather than Ince (though I admit Notts County played well against Man City).

Even Strachan (it's quite a long list)

Rednapp to Portsmouth Why not O'Neil to Hillsborough?

One of the out of work managers with experience would be the best bet. Though I hope it's not Keane or Megson. Mandaric might surprise us by bringing in a big name like O'Neill or someone relatively unknown. My four would be O'Neill, Worthington, Curbishley and Allardyce. Though if we can't get any of those then Ince might be worth a go.

O'Neill would be ideal to not only get us up but in the long run to take us and Mandaric where we want to go... But would he come here, can we bring him in? If so, then do all it takes Mandaric, if not then it's hard to see who else can take us there in the long run. So maybe someone like Ince might be worth a try, though as I said we probably need experience ideally.
