    (NHC) Next Killie Manager

    Ian Holloway has stated that he wants the job. Would be an interesting addition to the SPFL

    Would be great entertainment - he's brilliant at interviews.

    I know it sounds odd but I hope Killie set their sights higher. Holloway is good entertainment but how long out of the game and into a third placed club in the SPL....?

    Would be a bit of a gimmick imo. Would he walk into a decent job in England? Probably not so why should he walk into a to job in Scotland.

    A character amongst the lower leagues down here, and not all bad, but running out of options so if he can't make the break from football management maybe fancies rolling the dice in Scotland?

    If I was a Killie fan I'd be hoping for a continuation of the progress they've made rather than this one, but who knows.

    Only a year out the game, hardly unusual

    And he's done well with a couple of clubs in England, Killie may have done well under Clarke but be realistic, they won't get a manager of his caliber again

    Where's Warburton? He could rub some magic on the team and win a cup. Ally McCoist would eat all the pies so he won't get it.

    Simon Grayson is the 8/13 favourite on skybet. He was linked with us when Lennon left.

    Killie will be a very attractive job. Excellent group of players all under contract and in Europe. Gone are the days of having to take a punt on the likes of McCulloch. Not only did Clarke completely transform them he left them in an extremely healthy position too. Incredible.

    Similar to Warnock but likes actual football to be played in his teams.

    Iíve been told to stick on money for Simon Grayson.

    Holloway has done more in football management than the majority of managers in this country.

    Since when did Stevie Clarke turn around Killie from hiring Billy Broon Gary Locke and Elbows McCulloch to Di Matteo and Holloway wanting it? 😂😂

    I'd be surprised if Gary Holt wasn't in for it.

    Has he not been sacked at most jobs heís been managing at?

    Not sure of the pattern but wouldn't it be a year out of the game after a fair bit of deterioration at a few clubs prior to that? Thats why he's out of a job. He's past it. Bad news if he got a job at any top 6 Scottish club now even if he is a laugh.

    Holt would be a great shout - he had Livi playing some good football at times this season, and was instrumental in their survival.

    Given that Livi have lost Halkett, Gallagher and are about to lose Liam Kelly too, it might not be a terrible move for him. Guaranteed to go down next season IMO.

    Did very well at Preston.

    Made a mistake leaving them to join Sunderland, where he was the first manager to be there with them being a genuine basket case. He did some absolutely appalling transfer business in his short time there, albeit he was operating with both hands tied behind his back.

    Simon Grayson would be an awful appointment. I think Gary Holt is the strongest candidate. They could approach Motherwell for Robinson.

    Di Matteo was favourite a week or so ago.

    Was just looking at the betting just before coming on to this thread.

    Skybet have him 2nd and Darren Moore 3rd favourites. Granted it's just the bookies but that's 2 managers that have had relative success down south and are linked to the killie post

    Testament to our game and shows how it's on the rise. Big names want to come here and manage.

    That Irish Sea can conjure up some cold winds for Ayrshire folk.

    If Warburton was to get it I hope he had some protective headgear.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Eventually guiding teams to the prem promotions and away from relegations though. Holloway is a class manager when you look at the normal people quoted.

    When I seen warburton being mentioned I thought I'd strayed into the Hibs doormat thread by mistake.
