    I reckon he'll know a few card tricks to keep folk entertained, pull the ace of spades from behind Nixon's left ear.

    Interesting! I'll be glad to see us going with someone with extensive experience of the English game. Although to be picky, he's lacking in top end League One or Championship experience which would be a bonus.

    Character wise, he certainly seems like a good un who might well get the Barnsley mentality. And someone who might actually for once be relatively 'medium haul'!

    I hope we (board and fans) back him when the going's tough and give him what he needs to build something.

    Posted recently that a young ambitious manager is what we need and then the backing of the board followed by the support of the fans..

    1 out of 3 so far..looking good

    Yes. I rate Ferry and saw him play three, or four times last season. Pacey left wing back. Probably needs to improve his crossing, but definitely one to bring with him - along with Southwood.

    First question needs to be does Clarke want him.

    Five promotions? If I've read Wiki correctly.
    Lots of experience.
    Everybody seems happy enough with him.
    Wow! Fingers crossed those in the know are actually in the know.

    Only issue around Southwood is the injury he has. Not sure how long he will be out for. If it wasn't for that he'd be an absolute no brainer for me regardless of Clarke coming or not.

    Be happy if this gets done, solid appointment knows this league did some great things at Rovers, unlucky at Vale they thought they were going to get better and almost pulled off mission impossible at Cheltenham.

    I really, really hope we sign a player called Will Ferry, just to see the look on @Jimmy viz 's face.

    Wow!
    If this appointment is confirmed then it looks like an inspired choice. The man seems like an absolute diamond.

    Certainly one nobody picked up on.
    Record is decent
    Plenty of experience
    Adored by many

    No complaints here, fingers crossed this one lasts longer than 1 season and we can get behind him and build.

    Good luck Darrell

    1st job, get in ribs of the board and ensure Connor rejoins
