Challinor WAS a candidate, wonder is he out of the picture now? Mystery candidate, hard to form an opinion until we learn more.
If Micky's ambition is to manage in the Championship or higher, it is difficult to see how dropping back down to the National League, a division it can take even a good manager several seasons to escape from, would help his progress. It would seem more of a backwards step than taking the Tranmere job.Supposing Micky wasn't able to get a job at a higher level than L2 but Wrexham were paying the same or a bit more than Rovers. Their American owners don't know much about football, so most if not all of the footballing decisions would be left down to him. Given the suggestions of an uneasy relationship with Mark Palios, it is not beyond possibility that he would take it on.
Clough and Coleman are in post and the former at a well-financed club near his geographical base, so can't see him going.
Yes Bradford is a good shout assuming they have the finances as a fairly big club at L2 level. As are we of course but Micky may feel like some of the SWA do that he shouldn’t go backMust admit I did give myself a fright at the thought that MM might be a target for FGR! Thankfully that didn't happen, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Bradford was sounding him out, if indeed he (rather than Adams) isn't the mystery man they'd already targeted weeks ago.
That's true, although there'd been speculation for a couple of months about MM's future before he finally left Dundee United. He was linked with the Doncaster job, possibly others too.Micky was still Dundee Utd manager when the speculation about Adams to Bradford started. There's nothing to stop him being appointed right now to Bradford, the fact it hasn't happened suggests it's unlikely he'll end up there.
If he gets it, I wouldn't write him or them off.I wonder if Keith Hill is in contention for the Wrexham job ? An ex player of theirs and on the face of it his CV is still reasonable.
It would be amusing if he rolled up at the Racecourse.
