Hash - indeed we don’t know who applied, which is why it’s extraordinary to suggest “it was game over” as soon as Downes threw his hat into the ring. One eyed doesn’t come close.

Wu. It was a piss take mate after STTA's earlier post. As your asking well you don't get numerous Premier League and Championship coaching gigs if you are a dud. Fully gets Wimbledon and was bought up the Bassett way which is getting the best out of practically fuck all. Also, he won't let the current shower of shit keep taking piss out of us. Not guaranteeing he'll be a shoe in success but If we do go down we'll go down fighting and not with a pathetic whimper like what we are seeing now.

Am guessing Bassey, Banfield and Nolan were interviewed today as their odds considerably shortened.

Bassey now at 7/1
Wu well we don't know who all the candidates are, do we? So how can we answer that question? Of all the names mentioned/rumoured I'd have gone for Hurst but we don't know if he has applied, or Warburton but we don't know if he has applied. Nolan would probably be the more realistic one for us but again we don't know if he has applied. Wally Downes may not have managed a lot but he has decades of high level coaching experience at Palace, Reading, Southampton and West Ham under a variety of different managers to learn from such as Coppel, Warnock, Pardew, Avram Grant. Just because he failed at Brentford- and we don't really know what was going on at Brentford at the time, doesn't mean he can't be a good manager. But if he fancies another crack at managing and it's with us then I'm alright with it, not delighted but certainly better than Lee Clark or Simon Bassey.

Oh goody
“Changing man - you will get your wish. Only real question in this appointment was whether Wally would apply, once he did it was game over.” Doesn’t quite tally with “the Board will appoint the best candidate”. Seriously, please educate me as to why, Wimbledon connection apart, he is far and away the best candidate?

Wu, why not a tea/char man, you mysogynist. Secondly, is Ignominy in the Conference south, and why did they sack him anyway ?

REPD @ 16:54 it seems to be quite rare for gk coaches and physios alone as most of them (openly admit they) know sod all about either. U23 coach might be a change though if they’re brought in long term to develop players

changing man - apparently it is only to stop people moaning about how Downes has been appointed, not a serious process at all.

glad there was a result at Haringey, would have been a horrible night to head out to a replay

Yes in fairness we should be grateful that a man like Downes, whose only managerial appointment ended in ignominy 14 years ago, and is such a highly prized coach that he’s ended up in India, has applied for the job. It was basically him or the tea lady.

I didn't even know Wagstaff was a central midfielder, I thought that was Wordsworth but I'm probably confused. I'm fairly sure we could lose regularly with any two of the four (five?). Doesn't mean we shouldn't pick Hartigan and Wordsworth, I just don't believe it will have much effect on results. All the players need to share the blame, not a few scapegoats.

Wu has a point, I think we need a steady hand on that tiller. Players are on short contracts so you need to look at the whole picture.

One possible reservation with Downes is that he's a defensive specialist. The defence needs a bit of work, especially defending set pieces, but our main problem (for some time) has been scoring goals. I'd hope it we do appoint him, his assistant will be attack minded.

Seriously it is because of the Wimbledon connection a coach of Downes's quality has applied and is prepared to chuck in a good screw working in India

Someone with that level of coaching experience has to be worth a punt seeing as we are already going down according to most people

He would be the exception to my rule about not giving someone their first stint at managing
Wu. There is a full and thorough selection process ongoing in a posh hotel in central London. The appointment will be made on merit.😂

Does anyone seriously believe Downes would even be shortlisted if he didn’t have the Wimbledon connection? There’s a reason he is managing in India. Is there anyone else actually advising on this appointment, other than his friend Harry B?
