The unexpected drama of a search for Colchester United`s next manager begins tomorrow - right after the U's finalise a deal for leaving captain Dean Hammond and play tonight`s game with Gillingham.
There are no official names in the frame but plenty of speculation already about who will succeed Paul Lambert now that he has departed to Norwich City.
Mark Robins at Rotherham United, who had been tipped for City`s now-taken hotseat, is an early contender among fans, although Steve Bradshaw said at lunchtime today some "top-draw" attention has been shown in the vacancy.
"The search hasn`t started yet but we`ve had a remarkable amount of interest already. We`ve had several phone calls from some absolutely top-draw applicants and we will consider their applications and go through a process which is likely to take three weeks or so."
So there you have it - the starting gun in the club's race to replace Lambert has been let off already. Even if it begins as a slow walk and not exactly a sprint.
After today's fast-paced events, you can't blame Colchester United for wanting to take thier time over this one.
So what do you think?
