Sheringham Tells U`s No - Will Paul Buckle?

Teddy Sheringham will not be applying for the Colchester vacancy but Torquay United`s Paul Buckle may stall over a new deal to strengthen his chances of landing the job.

Both the ex-U`s players had emerged as candidates earlier today, until Sheringham`s agent claimed he would not be interested in swapping the pleasantry of ITV`s punditry for a place in the U's dugout.

The ex-England and Manchester United man fits club-set criteria that the person succeeding former boss Paul Lambert must ideally be out of work - avoiding any compensation disputes - but had been linked during the past 24-hours on the strength of his reputation alone, in light of his year`s service during 2007-8.

Torquay United manager Buckle played for Colchester during the 1990s and is someone chief executive, Steve Bradshaw, admitted this evening on local radio he personally admires.

Buckle also comments today in the South Devon Herald Express: "I am flattered that I've been linked with a League One club, especially one that I know, just as I knew Torquay United when I came back here."

The local East Anglian Daily Times picked up the same story, although successive promotion-winner Buckle went on to say there is currently "nothing to talk about" as regards the U`s post.

Speaking later on Essex-based radio station, Dream 100 FM this evening, Bradshaw said Buckle would be welcome to apply for the position and consideration would come equally with all other potential appointees.

Bradshaw added that, among many of those who have already submitted applications for the role at Colchester, some are "world-renowned" names.

World renowned names??? Maybe some ex-players with no managerial track record but certainly not managers. I would be absolutely mortified if Sheringham was given the job, he would have had to have been super-successful or he (and Cowling) would have been slated given his epic failure here as a player!
ooohhJohnnieJackson
Maybe he had a speech slip-up live on air, although he did seem pretty convinced! Ted doesn't want the job and we don't really want to give it to him. Club and ex-player agreed on that point, then! Would have been a huge risk for both sides if Teddy, class act in general football terms though he was, came to Colchester right now.
