Absolutely farcical. Just think how many managers we've had since then. Some stability would be nice.Do you remember when Barnes was leaving the club after being sacked and McAteer was phoned so that he could tell Barnes how to fit his bike into the back of the car? Sky was filming him via a helicopter and someone decided to phone Jason to explain to Barnes what he was doing wrong.
He seemed quite keen first time round when he was getting asked after win after win but deep down I think he knew Palios was looking for that more 'experienced' option. I hope he does well again as I think they should have kept him on while the team were winning and the going was good.I don’t think Dawes wants the job long term
The only names that really excite me at the moment are Challinor, or possibly Dawes, depending on how the next couple of weeks go. There are probably talented young coaches working behind the scenes at a number of clubs higher up the ladder, but it is debatable whether Palios has knowledge of them. For example, Neil Critchley left Liverpool's academy staff to join Blackpool and has done a fantastic job.Cambridge Utd have had a very successful season under Mark Bonner who I think was on the backroom staff down there for a while, and was completely unknown outside that club.
On the other hand, the Cowleys contrived to let Pompey slip out of the play-offs (surely the very minimum requirement for a club of their size) while Nigel Adkins couldn't get into them with Charlton either.
I'd be happier with someone who gets the culture of the club and the fans, and is hungry, than one of the usual suspects whose names are bound to get bandied about after the play-offs
