Using a scientific method, of likelihood of applying (based on experience, availability, location etc) and suitability (club criteria), my list comes out as [Link]

you can basically discount anyone under 70% chance of applying, and end up with Heckingbottom, Garner, Hurst, Nolan. But then I may have done WD a disservice as it's difficult to see what he's done.
I'm at Slough Tn v Sutton Utd, 0-1 @ HT. Slough's new ground is pretty good and catering facilities and bar top notch. Note they even have a decent local beer (Rebellion - geddit?) on tap.

Shame about the artificial pitch though
People may know what WD is like motivationally speaking (or may not know and taking guesses), but no one knows what Garner, Banfield, Nolan etc are like. If you consider the criteria the board stated they were looking for: Track record of success (I'm sure Banfield has a better record being at Arsenal), Youth Development (Garner coached Clyne, Zaha etc, Banfield FA Youth cup - what has WD done?), On and Off field Vision (no doubt for any of them - not sure recreating the crazy gang off the field will go down well in the modern game), motivational skills (if the 'FM scouts' know anything, seems Garner is a motivating personality), then I don't see how WD would have an edge on those criteria.

I was thinking more of top notch Indian Super League stars like Ifylika Chunda and Inyeed Aputoo

STTA you’re assuming he wouldn’t get fired before then, which actually given his Crazy Gang founder status and recent ‘idolisation versus performance’ history is a fair assumption I suppose.

If it’s gonna be him then let’s get in with it and give him full support. I share some of the concerns expressed below but couldn’t really pick out a favourite tbh.
Brighton - maybe not but I think I've provided sufficient reasons why he'd be a decent appointment.

Doc - I think the bookies are pretty close to what is going on, out of interest - if not Wally - who would you appoint from the top 4?

Yes but slow train the completing of a fairy tale circle is absolutely no reason at all to appoint him.

If we could dance with Wolves it would suggest league progress or a decent cup draw.

This is what happens when I chill out.
Doc - 100% means he's at the top of his game coaching but I'm not going to try and convince you. From everything I've read, seen and heard I think there are 4 good candidates, Wally is one of them and I think he'll be appointed.

I caught the end of his career and attended his testimonial at Plough Lane. He started the Crazy Gang to have him in charge as we go home completes the circle.
And Sitting Ball's name says it all really.

KD - Can't see Geronimo scoring many goals somehow.

Sounds like a pad scribbling stats man to me. We need a no nonsense hard case

apologies for the racial stereotyping
Could Wally use his contacts to call on a few Indians?

If we want to stay up we need a manager with up to date contacts who can strengthen on the cheap in January perhaps in the loan market. We also need someone who can organise and motivate the current squad. Since the Board are again putting the emphasise on youth development its easy to see why Banfield is suddenly appearing at a short price in the betting market. Links to Arsenal and potentially youth loanees, currently a scout who has coached at a high level.

Similar background to Ardley but much older and at 56 with no managment experiencence would be a punt to say the least.
Didn’t Noades like to see himself as the manager and the manager as his assistant

Just a word to all those who couldn't stop golng on about Nil being so high up the long service leader board. The new manager will be dead last.

Should shut them up for a while
I just hope that it's not Bassey or Hope Powell.

100% on his A license - that’s the kind of stat Ardley would use! Football is played on grass, not paper ;)

And as Hash said at Brentford he was working for Ron Noades who was a right dodgy cunt who tried to merge us with Palace

Would have thought Bassey’s no change selection, no change approach and no change performance would have ruled him out immediately.

Only person with 100% on his A license, significant contacts book, promotions on his CV with Palace, Reading and West Ham, widely respected coach. And more important than any of that he'll get everyone back together, sort this mess we're in and give us back a team we recognise as Wimbledon.

And on the question of coaching in India do you know what he's earning out there compared to here, because I do :)
Changing - nothing to do with your posts, it just happened to be you that STTA was replying to. And clearly I mean no offence to STTA as I rate his opinion, but that’s why I’m so bemused about his views on Downes. Hope he’s proven right in this.
