    No official approaches made.

    Loads of interest. Around 15 credible candidates shortlisted so far.

    Most likely will be in work coach from abroad or lower league. Still a chance for internal candidates.

    Don’t be fooled by the odds on McCarthy.

    As expected no rush to get anyone in and a huge effort has been made this week to support PH and the team.

    All is as expected really.

    Well ,thats that then. New owners arent too bothered about stopping up looking at the intentions mentioned there. Why did they buy us again?Not gunna make much money by getting relegated i reckon, I'm really beginning to wonder what BFC means to them already tbh?:confused:

    Why not G Neville with P Scholes as assistant ? Would be a show of intent from Mr Lee etc and if they’re trying to grow the profile of the club in the far east , Asia etc you need a big name . Sick of going down the up and coming manager route . Oakwell’s as flat as a fart it desperately needs an injection of real enthusiasm . An Alan Clarke style appointment is exactly what Barnsley football club needs right now . Sick and tired of this “ we’re only little Barnsley “ attitude .

    Amazing that people are being so negative.

    Let’s just see who they get in.

    If this is the impact the billionaire consortium are gunna stick by, im baffled theyve become so rich and successful tbh, because making profits and making bfc successful is not gunna happen with this tack.

    The foreign route would really worry me. Expecting someone to adapt to a new country in their personal life let alone level of football professionally could be suicidal. We don't have time for it amidst a relegation battle.

    Plus the stripping of the local feel of the club would be exacerbated at a time when fans are very sensitive to that issue.

    Is that a wind up?

    Neville’s brief reign at Valencia must go down as one of the worst in history.

    Nope. Was never an option. Like me saying I'm disappointed I don't go out with Kylie Minogue.

    People need to remember we’ve got to bring in almost a full team off first team staff.

    It’s not just about one name.

    Ideally we need to recruit a coach with a successful team behind him.

    They can then transfer that straight to us like Hecky has done.

    I'd be up for another young manager from lower leagues. Just not that tool Robinson.

    How on earth do you come to the conclusion that new owners are not bothered ? Do you expect them to come in with a magic wand, wave it & everything is sorted ., with all thats gone off down there in the last couple of months we have to get behind them but if the fans turn so quickly they might not think its worth it . Give them time , they have not become billionaires because they are fools , I am sure they will make mistakes but we have to support them

    I don't mind a foreign manager as long as it's someone who has experience of the English game.

    Someone in the mould of Roberto Martinez, like maybe Robert Martinez, although I'd imagine he'll not want to leave Belgium until after the World Cup.

    It was reported on Radio Sheffield today that Barnsley have approached Lincoln City about Danny Cowley.

    Exactly. How some can complain and wittle about stuff that's hypothetical or out of their hands is bewildering..
    What will be will be .. plus,the new owners have been here only 5 weeks .. ..
