Oakwell Hotseat - The Hunt Goes On

Oakwell Hotseat - The Hunt Goes On

The club have this evening released a statement that Sean O'Driscoll will not become the next manager of Barnsley Football Club.

Many had tipped O'Driscoll to become the manager in the very near future the 55 year old who left Nottingham Forest in november has met with the Oakwell board.

The statement released by the club O'Driscoll states:

'I've respectfully declined the opportunity to become Barnsley's next manager,'
'I'm very grateful to have had the opportunity to have spoken to Barnsley,'
In my one meeting with the directors I was keen to ascertain exactly what the short and long term strategies and ambitions of the club are and how I may be able to help the club achieve those. At no point were terms discussed by either party'.
'It's a well-run club whose achievements in successfully maintaining their Championship status for so many seasons should never be underestimated. The directors' commitment to and passion for Barnsley FC impressed me'.
'The directors are understandably keen to make a quick appointment to continue the work of trying to retain the club's Championship status once again'.
'But at this moment, and given the extremely disappointing and sudden nature of my departure from Nottingham Forest, I've respectfully declined the opportunity to become Barnsley's next manager'.
'I wish the club, players and supporters all the best for the rest of the season.'

What do the fans think to this??
It fills me with dread, yet again it appears the club lack the ambition to attract quality personell to the Football Club.

Who does this leave in the running? Flitcroft, Redfearn, Mellon and Megson?? Though I would love to see a role for Redders I would love him as a number two.

I would still like to know any stance on Steve Cotterill.

Who do the fans want??????

Fred Elliot would be a better shout. He's doing well at Inverness but I'm not sure he has the credentials we need. He wouldn't be my choice but if they do appoint him I'll back him.

We'll have to back whoever gets the job, but even Alex Ferguson would struggle to keep us up now..? Miracle required...
