    John Sheridan

    John Sheridan has just scooped Manager of the Month Award for November after guiding Oldham to maximum points during the month. No tongue in cheek intended but surely he's already got more credentials than Stan!!
    Fast track to the Hot Seat!

    Any body that has managed a game in their life has more credentials than Stan...

    Glad to see an ex-Wednesdayite do well. The Owls sack their managers every 12 months or so and I would deem it more likely he'll be managing in Sheffield before he'll be Ireland manager.

    There was quite a call for him to take over before Laws got on board with the Owls alright, so I'd say he'll be next in the hot seat after Laws gets sacked for only guiding us to 8th place in or first season back in the Premier next year!

    ...and he scored the goal that got us to USA '94 in the 1-3 defeat by Spain (not to mention the winner in the League Cup Final against Man U in 1991 - Wednesday's only major trophy in 60 years).

    Lovely passer of the ball - didn't really have the legs to be a box to box midfielder as required by Jack.

    Has anyone noticed how well his team has done even since this thread was started?

    Oldham have been on a great run in the last few weeks.

    I doubt we can take all the credit for their run though

    It is certainly worth while watching his progress as a manager as we don't exactly have too many ex-Irish internationals in management these days. Strange how so few of the Irish team of the 1980-90s are in management. Aldo made a good fist of it at Tranmere - still can't understand how Stan got the Irish job ahead of him.

    Seen an article somewhere on Sheri rollicking some young fella for doing part time acting. In fairness to him he's been coach at Oldham for a while and had a spell as caretaker before. Oddly I've seen a few of their matches and they do play nice football.
    That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age

    it is strange really when you consider that it was a very vocal bunch and appeared to have a fair few leaders.

    can only think of mccarthy, stan & keane. i believe Trigger is doing his uefa A badge shortly so may get the irish job after stan .

    there's a few in coaching but very few in management esically if you compare with ingerlund who had only a very average team during the same period but have loads of managers out of it.

    Went to see Oldham in the 1st round of the Cup, they were very average and just scrapped past a Conference North side. Very reliant on good set pieces, but a lot of league sides do when playing non-league teams, it's where the full-time hours spent practising moves really shows up.
    Always rated him as a player and Oldham are going well hopefully he gets them up and maybe lands a bigger job.

    think townsend would have been the obvious contender. brady seems to have found his niche. aldo would have been a good choice for ireland job given paucity of options available. whelan did okay.....ish...o leary turned out to be incapable of gettin on with anyone..

    as a Leeds and Ireland fan, John Sheridan was my hero growing up (I beven stated it in my Frosties secret diary - anybody else got one of them?). I hope Oldham go up, then he gets the job at Elland Rd....

    I always liked the way Sheridan played. Remember his great goal against Holland in a away friendly. Hit the crossbar against Italy in 94 (Keane pass). Now doing a good job in charge of Oldham. By the way does anyone on this board know ANYONE who believes Staunton is a good manager? I have asked everyone I know who is involved in football in anyway fom Crumlin to Cork to Pennsylvania and have yet to meet anyone who believes Stan knows what he is doing.

    I'm almost certain it was Whelan cross to Sheridan.

    Wrexham is another club to watch out for with Brian Carey in control until the end of the season.

    Disappointed to see Sheridan part company with Oldham. I had high hopes for him as he wasn't doing a bad job there. Just off the play offs but a thumping at the weekend and talk of player misbehaviour on a night out seems to have been the final straw for the manager.
