With all due respect, there's no way you'll get Evatt, his relationship with the Chairman and fans is insurmountable, and again with respect, Bolton are a bigger club than Blackpool, I wouldn't be hanging your hats on Evatt jumping ship.
If you’d have asked us yesterday morning we’d have quoted you word for word about Niel Critchey....

Simon Grayson now 7/2 2nd favourite with skybet. Is a return to pool on the cards for Larry

Not a chance in hell would the board go back to Grayson. The bookies don’t usually get it far wrong but they are a million mile wide of the mark on this one!

My vote would be to go down the same route as Critchley, bring in someone with experience running the academy at one of the top PL clubs.

But Blackpool are in his heart whereas Bolton is just a job

It’s unclear for what length but Manning is under contract with MK and would cost something.

I didn’t actually realise how young he was. At 36 I’m really not a fan of him walking into a Championship dressing room with the likes of Madine, Keogh, Keshi etc he never played above non league level. I could see that turning very bad very quickly.

I think it worked for him this year at MK because he had a very young squad with a fair bit of money spent on players like Twine and Eisa.

Just have a bad feeling about him with us.
Maybe with Keogh as a playing assistant.

He might well be considered actually? If he is prepared to come back up here. Might be, for the main job. He knows the club set up and a lot of the players. Just won't want to be away from home full time, I suspect.
Calderwood has left the cobblers and is now back with a championship club, who I cannot remember:

Graysons got experience and won promotion with us once. Maybe his failure last time was a one off and he deserves another chance
He was absolutely rubbish when he was with us.If there's one former Sunderland manager I'd go for it would be Jack Ross. It's a bit of a kick in the bollocks losing your manager, he was doing a fantastic job IMHO.

To me Garrity is the easy choice with perhaps Keogh as player/assistant coach? That does not mean that's what I would want though.....just saying it's the easy option.

John Murphy should be on the list above.
Very successful with the Youth Team and knows the club and the way of playing.
(Also would be useful, very, at showing players how to head a ball)

Suppose it comes down to who applies?

Unless we go chasing someone....

Im pretty good at Football Manager, maybe Simon would give me a go? 🤪

Anyone as long as it's not Emma Hayes yuk! a girlie. You do know that women can't even kick a ball properly? I saw Diana Ross try to score an open goal to kick off the World Cup. She couldn't even do that. This proves that girlies should never be allowed into a football ground. Did you know....(Cont. P.94).
