Club Close In On Final Six: Calderwood Linked


Acting Newcastle United and former Nottingham Forest manager, Colin Calderwood, has been suggested as the newest contender to succeed Paul Lambert.

Currently enjoying a spell alongside Chris Hughton as joint-caretaker, Calderwood previously also coached Northampton town as is the second member of Newcastle`s backroom staff tipped as an applicant. Iain Dowie has also had his name put forward in media circles.

The same newspaper article confirms that the club spent much of the weekend interview prospective appointees, including just one person currently in work, strongly believed to be Paul Buckle. Mark Robbins (Rotherham) and John Still (Dagenham and Redbridge) have both all-but ruled themselves out of the running within the last 24-hours.

U`s owner and Chirman, Robbie Cowling, told the EADT: "The list of candidates who have applied for the job is amazing. I think the calibre of the people who have applied says a lot about our football club.

"What has been really nice is that the people who have come forward to register their interest have been of a very high quality."

Actaully, just realised that unless he's already a candidate, perhaps instead of Dowie. Because neither of them are essentailly out of work! And where does that leave Kinsella?! Some of this speculation HAS to be wrong!!

Well - thats what speculation is - what people think - so is bound to be wrong! Kinsella could be the one who is with another club....

OK, I knew that, but... god, just impossible to tell who I want and who they are, although at the end of the day I'm not the one deciding. Would be happy with Kinsella if he's got a shout, although his lack of experience as a full-time manager would mean he'd be a bit of a risk. Boothroyd would get instant respect in the changing-room, right?
