So who's in the mix for next WFC manager?

Probably deserves its own thread. Managerial appointments already taking place at other clubs. I guess if we were to look for a 'name':

Rod Stringer? Steve King? Ian Allinson? Gary Waddock? No idea what their contract situation is although the latter is currently out of work.

Or are we going to take a gamble on another up and coming manager? A couple of 'rumours' are already proving to be very unpopular amongst fans.

I think I'd rather a safe pair of hands at this level who has a record of getting teams close to or into the play offs on a moderate wage bill. As I've said I really don't want someone who 'gets' Wealdstone, maybe has a Stones connection, but doesn't have a track record of success at Conference South Football.

Not for asking much ;)

Get this appointment wrong and you could well be facing Ryman league football again.

Has been done before. By some bloke at Hungerford in the past! And joking aside didn't Braintree and Hampton reach play offs on a 'moderate' ie 5-6k wage bill?

Depends what our budget is, Adam.

Anthony Gale
Luke Tuffs
Dean Brennan

AGM suggested a tad above whats considered the 'median' for our division. Not big bucks at all but with canny management enough to flirt with or sneak into the play offs.

Most important thing is that we don't sell ourselves short here.

Interesting insight to Dean Brennan, worth a listen.

My lords, Tim Fuell hosting that show too. He was the Yeading fan who used to lurk on our old mailing list. Built him a PC in the late 90s. Was an Intel Pentium 200mhz classic with 32mb RAM. Cost an arm and a leg too. You need more spec than that to type a single letter these days!

Still have the job sheet. Nothing to do with rain manism...
