Either Alan Curbishley or Steve Coppell : though with the latter, I have the reservation that he'd bail out at any sign of things not going the way he thought. But if he performs in the way he did at Palace and Reading, he'd be a good choice.
There's no chance of getting Coppell - he's retired from football management.Car Expert
Has he? When did he do that - after he left Bristol City?
Yes. Or so he said, anyways.
Coppell was the other person I wanted last year, but I'd be concerned at him walking after what happened at Bristol City.
What do you think's going to happen with Portsmouth?
I think they'll survive by the skin of their teeth. I hope they do survive, it's never nice to see a club go to the wall, like poor Chester did last year

How about Eddie Howe, currently doing a brilliant job at Bournemouth?...
Don't know enough about him.
Young manager, born 1977 (echoes of Southgate). Has taken unfashionable Bournemouth from league 2 to league 1 promotion contenders.
