    That would be an interesting option for him. Ollie Horgan would definitely know him from Irish Schools manager job.

    He'd likely end up at Sligo or Galway though if he came home.

    As I understand it, he has been told his contract won't be renewed. But that situation could easily change if Zola is sacked by Birmingham before the end of the season.

    He's still at the club for now: https://www.instagram.com/p/BR_upHqBzUl/

    You'd have to ask serious questions about a club that sack Gary Rowett but refuse to do the same for Zola.

    Remarkable, when you do emit a brief utterance of optimism, its on a long shot like this

    Zola has has a few goes at management but doesn't seem to have made much of a go at it....A great player does not necessarily make a good manger..........

    Just found out where Baba has ended up: he joined Macclesfield back in July - bit of a drop but he's getting first-team football and got his first goal with a 35-yarder against Wrexham, following it up with a properly impressive cartwheel and somersault (we've got to give him a couple of caps so he can do it at the Aviva). And anyway, he's not yet 21 and sure Conor Hourihane was playing only one level higher until he was 23. Seems to have moved up to midfield based on where he tended to pop up in this highlights package:

    Fair play to him for stopping the spiral and getting in an eleven, not much room for frills down there either considering his path up to now, all credit. A long way back to the international radar leagues but all the best to him

    Was getting worried about him as he hadn't been playing recently (only an FA Cup appearance since mid-September) but he returned to Macclesfield's first eleven today and played the full game: http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/42475753. With Macclesfield six points clear at the top of the National League, a run of good form could give him a clear path to EFL football.

    Hadn't realised he was already in Germany. From what I can see, he's going from a team promoted to the fourth tier to a team demoted to the fourth tier. How bad.
