Spot on. This thread is just bizarre.

I'm thinking maybe we should also be looking at setting up some kind of advisory panel of former managers to help the new boss. Perhaps headed by Hodgy and Brian Little but maybe best to limit it to seven or eight of them. Of course we'd only employ the services of legends who know the club inside out.

There was me thinking we needed investors to raise the money for the roof or sponsors!?

Brilliant idea - may I suggest Marco Gabbiadini, he'd be absolutely brilliant at helping our new manager because he scored some great goals for us nearly twenty years ago, and also Michael Oliver - because he has a name identical to Michael Oliver the referee and that must mean he would know all about football and be good at advising on transfers and money issues.

Martin Gray could join as a full-time consultant for the advisory panel?

Doesn't Marco have his own pub, so at least he has management experience?

What about a role for Osvaldo Dodgy-Deals.

Brown Fox on the wing would encourage a few more fans to attend ( well male ones anyway)

is there a place in the side upfront for Johnny X ( replace Beck if he goes to York?)

not sure Bert Micro-chip would approve though

Could persuade Rick Spangle to invest in club ( if the fans approved)

My money is on tight-lipped, ashen-faced supremo Ron Knee, 59 supported by Baldy Pevsner, Hernandez de Pratwinkle, and fearless one-legged custodian Wally Foot

excellent shout. Possibly Toman as manager and Smith as coach. I have been wondering about Andy Crosby as well.


Billy Miller is devastated he lost your backing so quickly.


No he hasn't lost my backing. :D :D I just don't think he will apply now. a few years too late this job I suspect.

The point about employing former 'legends' is they will be given more time and patience by the fans. Just imagine the buzz from Toman and Smudger turning up at BM. It would inspire everybody not just the players.

If we are to cast the net wider, somebody like Miller would be of interest although I suspect the vacancy has come a few years too late. He developed Nathan into the excellent player he is today and used to work for the club. He was really chatty with the fans when we played railway and is used to dealing with limited budgets. He took Tadcaster up to the Evostik and produced a really good railway team on a very limited budget.

The majority of the players are under 30 and quite possibly didn't grow up watching Darlo. I doubt they have much of an idea who Smith and Toman are - and the same probably applies to a large section of our fanbase.

While we are at it I wonder if Barry Conlon could be tempted? :P

If we're on about former players - Robbie Blake. Let's get him back in.

He'd probably still do a decent job up front.

What about Mike Bassett? Didn't he play for Darlington, watched it in a film/documentary and looked a bit like Ricky Tomlinson as well.
