Done a quick review of possible candidates below, but in all honesty I can't see any of these ending up as head coach at Oakwell except Adam Murray (in the short term). IMO it will either be an internal appointment or someone unknown from Europe. Nigel Adkins - Mr positive,he did a very good job last season at Hull and rebuilt his reputation a little bit following unsuccessful spells at Reading and Sheffield United, however he refused to sign a new contract at the KC due to issues with the Allam family and how the club would move forward. Plays decent football, but can't see him working within our restricted policy of signing players aged 18-22. Phil Parkinson - Handled himself very well during all the shenanigans at Bolton but wouldn't want to watch his style of football. It's not like we even have the players to implement a direct, kick and rush approach. Gareth Ainsowrth - Very impressed with where he taken Wycombe on next to nothing and his teams seem to have a blend of youth and experience. On the downside, the football isn't the most pleasing on they eye. Would he be willing to move north? Like Nigel Adkins, can't see him working within our restricted transfer policy plan. Jan Siewert - No ta, was a disaster at Huddersfield, negative boring football. Gary Rowett - Had good spells at Burton Albion and Birmingham but walked out on Derby and then sacked at Stoke following an unsuccessful spell. Possibly no.1 contender for the Millwall job. He would get us more organised and difficult to beat, but I think we would struggle for goals. As above, don't think he would work within our transfer policy. Adam Murrary - Know nothing about the fella, could he be given 3-4 games to see if he can pick up some points? If he does then maybe a short term contract until the end of the season? In summary, there's been a clear shift in the plan this summer (whether deliberate or not) but I just can't see many coaches from this country wanting to work within such a restricted transfer policy, None of the above would want a relegation on their CV which is very likely given the players they wil be working with.
