    I wonder if they'll consider Robbie Keane.

    I think Kenny's position is untenable now but whoever gets the job is still going to have to work with the poor players we've got. Thankless task.

    He is the cheapest option I guess. About the only one we could afford.

    I'd say Duffer is a better shout if we're going for an old hand with no experience. He did well to get out when he did.

    If Chris Hughton gets the boot from Forest he'd be a great option.

    Well, (a) they're two years older now and it was an old squad then and (b) we weren't any great shakes under Mick either.

    Duff, maybe, but his problems might have been with the whole organisation and not just Kenny.

    Hughton I doubt we could get.

    There is not a hope in hell we can afford a Championship manager.

    True unless it was some manager getting sacked for being relegated or something like that.

    Not advocating for Kenny, but I hate these kind of threads. Never go full YBIG.

    I don't think it's unreasonable to have a thread like this one. There will almost certainly be a new manager before the next campaign so it's useful to look at options, or even to look at how few good options there are.
