How can Irvine carry on after last night, beaten and humiliated, surely JP will place him on gardening leave today, but who will replace him, will it be Downing, or will JP move quickly to appoint an experienced manager?

Advocat has been mentioned, who else is out there?

If he acts now he can give himself time before the window opens. Try and make a long-term appointment remove Irvine, Kelly, Downing and Kiely and lets start again. Not Sherwood for me. Or Pulis. But somebody who can both unite and excite the fans. Not really sure whose out there right now but we shouldn't discount McInnes or alternatively Robinson at MK Dons. Personally I'd love us to go back and look for somebody like Pepe Mel who plays differently. This time however we need to back him with a proper coaching infrastructure - not allowing him his own coaching staff meant his tenure at the club was effectively over before it started.

Pepe Mel (with full backroom staff)
Derek McInnes
Gary Rowett

It will most likely be Phelan though with Kiely and Downing in tow.

From the championship I'd only really fancy McLaren or Howe.

But I can't see either of them leaving where they are at the moment.

I can't see Jeremy paying compensation for someone so it would have to be someone out of work at the moment.

Derek McInnes, given backing through thick and thin, follow Swanseas model of past player, is a good shout.

Lets just bring in one of our own, someone who has had links with the club.The fans would give him time. Irvine was never going to get time.
I suggest we get Richard Sneekes involved in some coaching role

Terry Burton has been in post several months now so his 'due diligence' should at least have been throwing up some candidates. Steve McClaren would be my choice. OK, it would mean us paying out compensation but what's a couple of million in the broader scheme of things? Relegation would cost us a lot lot more.

I agree that the next appointment should be one of our own. That person will unify the fans for a start.

But who?

What'll make me start feeling a lot more brotherly love is points on the board, a settled team and starting eleven who show spirit and a clear sense of knowing what they're doing.

I think Pulis would give us that. 

Yes the football is of the knuckle-dragging variety, but at least cavemen know how to fight and scrap and not go down.

But he's not stupid. He'd find a way to keep fans happy while still making the team hard to beat.

Would rather have Appleton than Sneekers TBH but would Appleton work as an understudy now albeit in the Premier League?

I would love to see Bob Taylor around the place but then we are getting as bad as JP with a job for the boys.

The chap down here, one of the longest serving managers in all leagues does a stirling job with buttons.

But fans want attractive football, well most on here do. Or will the mentality change from a Pepe Mel kind of Manager to a Pulis kind of Manager. Really I don't care who comes in apart from Mr Dave Jones just so long that he gets our club and fans united again.

Sneekes would bring a touch of class, he talks a good game on WM. Coach at Rushall, not sure how well they are doing but i hear they play some good stuff.Listen to him on a Friday night. What about Jol and Sneekes together.Lets keep it dutch
