'If It's Football, It's Vital'

D-Day Looms (we think)

So were we are. One more sleep or maybe two! Finally after all the speculation the appointment of Swindon Town's new manager is scheduled to be announced on Wednesday 17th. Alas, rumours are circulating that it could be Thursday now.

After a period when a new name was mentioned almost daily, the club and media have gone awfully quiet. Is that a good sign? I think so.

So who's it going to be?

Dietmar Hamann? The most decorated candidate in terms of honours earned as a player. The former Liverpool midfielder has been busy furthering his coaching education with both Milton Keynes Dons and Leicester City over the last year.

Throughout his career has worked under big names such Franz Beckenbauer, Giovanni Trapattoni, Otto Rehhagel, Rudi Völler, Jürgen Klinsmann, Ruud Gullit, Gerard Houllier, Rafa Benitez and Sven-Göran Eriksson.

Paolo Di Canio? The glamour name. A controversial figure yet well liked. He would certainly get the club some attention with he was to be appointed. Many are desperate to see Di Canio appointed.

George Burley? Extremely experienced. One questions why he would feel the need to drop down to League Two. Burley is a former Premier League Manager of the Year.

Gus McPherson? Earned a lot of praise for his seven year spell at St. Mirren.

John Hughes? Another highly rated yet unemployed Scottish manager. Did a great job at Falkirk.

Paul Trollope? For a long time, Trollope did a decent job with Lennie Lawrence at Bristol Rovers. He has Swindon Town in his veins. Many believe that he would be manager now had Andrew Fitton remained as chairman.

Richard Money? We could do a lot worse. Proven at this level of the Football League during his tenure at Walsall.

Jim Magilton? Believed to be interviewed. The Oxford United favourite wouldn't go down that well with Town fans.

Graham Rix? Widely rumoured to be in the frame. This would not go down well... at all! Thanks to his links to Oxford and his stint in prison a decade ago.


SO WHO DO YOU WANT? HECK, IT MIGHT NOT EVEN BE A MEMBER FROM THAT LIST! TIME WILL TELL
