Steve McMahon Next Gills Boss?

Useless manager Steve McMahon could be set to return to english football as manager of Gillingham.

McMahon who is one of the most hated figures in Swindon Town history, had been out of the english game since leaving Blackpool in 2004.

McMahon was signed as the manager of Perth Glory in 2005. However, his tenure at the club proved short.

A combination of media speculation, poor signings from the transfer market, indifferent form and an apparent dispute with the board saw him leave the club in December 2005.

Whilst at Swindon, McMahon sold fans favourite Jan Aage Fjortoft after slating him in the media after fans had voted Fjortoft player of the year as well as playing he most unattractive football ever seen at the County Ground by bringing in over the hill players. Losses of 4-0 and 5-0 were a regular thing at Swindon Town during McMahon's tenure at the County Ground.

In our opinion if Gillingham want to go places, Iffy Onuora deserves the Gillingham job more than the waste of space that is Steve McMahon.

Selling Jan was a massive blunder or at least the way he done it was. He managed the way he played...dive in with both feet.

I actually have a lot of time and respect for McMahon -better than Iffy any day. I nthought he had signed a three year eal to do sports pundit for ESPN.
