Good shout, get him in that dressing room to show off his six pack and see if that motivates the players.

Been looking at all managers that's not in work and ones I think would fit into the Motherwell way of things and I have come up with one name Darren Ferguson!

Worth a shout and sort of appointment the club makes.

I thought he'd been a manager for a lot longer, like since the 90s, but he only took the job at peterboro in 2008.

Over 80 applicants for the job so far.

Wonder if Edgar Davids is among them, as usual?

If we're serious about wanting to rely on our own youth rather than buying in players on a gamble, then Hammell is surely the man for the job? He knows our youth players very well and will know who's up for the task and who isn't.

Thats my gut reaction right now.

I understand why others would prefer him to stay where he is as the first team coach role can be a poisoned chalice and Id hate to see Hammy legacy as a player tarnished.

However, sometimes you just have to take that chance and he ticks a lot of boxes for me. The one big gap is experience with first team players.

Leaving aside Craigans alleged reasons for departing last time round, he would be my other choice for similar reasons.

Lambert is interesting and has managed at a high level, but does that make him a good fit at our level?

Simo also seems to be a good fit but he has been passed over at least  twice before. Only the board will know whether thats an impedement this time round.

Hopefully we will start to see firmer news by the weekend.

I don't know about poisoned chalice, but I'd rather have Hammy in his current role for the next 10 years helping our managers blood youngsters into the team than have him be the gaffer fir a successful 2 years then lose him to an Aberdeen or Hibs managerial vacancy.

That's just mebeing selfish, though, and I'm sure he has ideas about his own career path.

Hammell currently 4/5, and Valakari down from 10/1 to 3/1.

 

I reckon it’ll be big Simo!

I don’t know the salary differential between Academy Director and Manager, I don’t know Hammell’s personal ambition in management.  But he probably has a job for life at the moment and the manager’s job is likely to be a 2 year gig either because of success of failure.  If it is success then great for him, if it is failure do we lose him from the club?

Either or both would work for me .

not keen on lambert purely as he comes across as a boring bigger and his teams matched his personality - not too different from GA albeit at a higher level .

Valakari has done well and shown he wants it . 

equally hammel is a good go guy and called out obvious gaps and needs .

have them both please

Mcbookie said he went from 10/1 to 3/1 because 3 people put money on him, probably after that video of him denying contact with us.

A Herald article this morning with Paul Lambert with a couple of quotes from him. Speaks very highly of the club and definitely implies that he would be open to an offer.

 I think he would be a great option if we could afford him.

He's perfectly free to apply if he's interested.

Looks like he hasn't applied but would be happy to talk to the club.  I would have no problem with him bring asked. I know some have questioned his record down south but we aren't going to get a manager who has won multiple trophies. Lambert and Valakari both appealing and I am sure a few others that we haven't even considered.  Stevie H also can't be discounted especially if we win on Saturday and there are more positive signs...

He makes Kenny Dalglish seem effervescent but in terms of experience and success he's probably as good as we get.  The downside is he failed at Livingston (albeit his first job I think) and is used to operating at a much higher level.  Also all through his career he's tended to walk away from clubs.

Not to take this post in isolation - club haven’t asked for applications as that’s rarely the process. Registering of interest comes in differing ways.
