    Be brilliant both for the club and as a PR move. Conor has always come across as someone who thinks about the game. Genuinely happy if this happens.

    Could we tweak the rules to be similar to American Football, and just bring him on for free kicks and corners? :)

    They can get an established and proven performer at this level as a player by probably offering lower wages than he would normal command with a coaching position to help him develop his own career. That sounds like exactly what a professional &!well run outfit in any industry would try to do.
    It’s a win win for both sides with an added bonus that he is an old favourite.

    You could be right IF there’s an ounce of truth in it. Damned if they do, damned if they don’t though really.

    Yes please from me. To both of them. Stendel's sexy football, captained and coached by the sexy Conor (I've still got a man crush on him).

    If any of this is true (won’t believe it until it happens) I just wonder if Stendel has been asked as a short term fix while Hourihane finds his feet and eventually takes over?
    I doubt Hourihane would play every week either but his experience for an hour every other game or half an hour off the bench could be invaluable. For his set pieces and s***housery alone.

    The worry is for me that Stendel played with a back 4 & played with wingers. We don’t have any wingers or natural full backs (barring possibly Lofthouse, not sure if he’s a full back or wing back).

    We also have at least 6 centre backs contracted for next season.

    So we’re either going to have to take a big financial hit getting rid of centre backs & bringing in wide players or we’re going to need Stendel to play a different system to what he did previously and if that’s the case then why even bother going back?

    I hope you’re right but I’d be much more comfortable seeing a successful management team come in who have experience of working together. I remember when Schopp didn’t come in with his own assistants & it was a complete disaster

    Can’t disagree with any of that.

    Still a cut above the out going Kane and pedestrian Russell.

    The evidence suggests to me that Stendel got lucky with the players he had at his disposal when he was appointed last time around. He couldn’t get a tune out of the squad in the Championship (with possible mitigating circumstances), and his subsequent appointments were short lived and unsuccessful.
    Great guy and would provide a mood lift in the short term but personally, I’m not convinced he’d be a good appointment.

    That’s John Russell you’re thinking of

    He'd not be my choice either, but I'd argue that the recruitment whilst he was in charge was largely poor, and didn't set him up well for the Championship. He was fairly unfortunate at Hearts too, with the timing of his sacking, and Nancy were an absolute basket case of a club when he was there because of 'you know who'.

    I don't think that the assistant was the problem there, it was that the CEO brought in a poor manager with instructions to play value raising tactics at the expense of on-field success.

    I don’t think Collins did a bad job for the majority of the season, it was only after the Lincoln game that everyone worked out the deficiencies in our squad
