Martin Samuels take in the Daily Mail, looking at whether DM should get the job and contrasting his record to those of Appleton and Smith. An interesting read.

He has to be given a year, we could be missing out on a great manager here. Every appointment is a risk.

Speaks a lot of sense, from somebody not in any way aligned to the club. Obviously ex players have clamoured for Moore, it seems everyone thinks Moore deserves a crack. Everyone except those within the club boardroom. Having read that article it’s hard to see how Appleton is even viewed as a viable alternative at all. Give ‘im a goo.

Having read the article in The Mail I would tend to agree with Martin Samuels. He speaks a lot of sense and why should the position go to someone 'less deserving' than Darren. He has stepped into the role and as well as out performing both Pulis and Pardew he conducted himself really well in a way that I would want a manger to represent the club.
His after match interviews come across really well, he obviously loves the club and has grown into this job. There are so many reasons why he should have the job and very few why he shouldn't. All this lack of experience business is a poor excuse for not appointing him, whilst the ones with so called experience are not that special anyway. This dithering about could cost us in the long term. The next few weeks will be vital (whatever happens between now and next Sunday) but to retain Darren would be a major statement by the club and show that we actually mean business and will back someone who undoubtedly wants this club to do well, embraces the supporters, can organise and motivate players and has brought smiles back to this club.
To those is charge --JUST GET ON WITH IT.

I'd agree with that but what about the fans who put the style of football ahead of everything else?   We don't know if Big Dave will play a more expansive game in the future and he is having to work with a squad with limitations - but, IF the way we're playing now is indicative about how we'd play in the future there'll be a lot of unhappy fans around.

Personally, I think the results mean everything - if we're winning and picking up points then people won't care how we play of who's in charge.

IF Darren is so in tune with the club and the fans he will know that we want more entertaining football, however he doesn't have the tools to make that happen at the moment.
Is he capable of building what we (Standaman and myself to name 2) want? Thats a total unknown, I do believe its too big a gamble to give to a untried coach, BUT put the correct man alongside him and it reduces the risk.

Clough & Taylor, Ferguson and Kidd, Ferguson & Carlos Queiroz, Wenger & Bould, Anfield boot room,  Lone coaches are not the way to sustained success, even the capped one had Kempey FFS !
Yes Darren and Shan seem to be a team but I maintain that somewhere in the organisation we need a mentor if we are going to let Darren take the reins in SUCH an important time in the clubs history.
Lovin the championship, just lovin it !

The one thing the appointment of Big D would do is re unify / re connect a club that has become very fractured and divided. No other candidate would be able to do that in as short a space of time regardless of their experience something the board need to take into consideration when making the next , vital appointment

There's only one Big Dave! More than fully deserved, I think it would not be a tragedy we don't ride on this upturn and give him the job for next season now. Just imagine how awful it'd feel if we change and fall into another crap spell given most our squad seem to have issues with getting along with the manager...I say rise on the momentum and give him the job!!

Also really nice touch him brining out all the staff for his award, what a humble gentleman.

It’s a real shame the colour of his skin has been mentioned regarding why he hasn’t been given the job.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

No don't give him the job. There is a world of difference between his current role and the one he'd  be expected to carry out next season. Fans are more than happy to concede possession for a result against Man U and Spurs but do that at home to Norwich and Brentford will soon bring the knives out. We have to evolve as a club and this is the perfect opportunity. This is a massive appointment that will determine the next five years or so. We must look at the bigger picture.

As far as I'm aware, the permanent head coach job hasn't been filled yet.

Non white managers in football has been a contentious issue in football circles for some time now, so it was inevitable it would be commented on.

After the terrific run of games he engineered, as I said earlier in this thread, I couldn’t think of anyone who deserves it more.

Well done Darren and thank you for restoring pride to the club and the ride of hope!

This I do agree with even a club with our rich history is not above scrutiny. Black coaches are under represented and given Moore's record looking from the outside in it must be baffling to other fans and the media that he isn't hot favourite for the position.


We know it's a big job with a big rebuild ahead. Others just see Champions League form against Champions League teams.


The issue was bound to come up.

It's an incredible achievement for him. I think he above all will be thinking, 'if only I had taken over sooner'. Tremendous accolade for him and he thoroughly deserves it.

I heard a comment, possibly from Liam Rosenior pre-empting that he won't get it because he's black, it could've been somebody else but surely pre-empting racism is a problem too?!

The reasons he may not get it are all here on this board; is he a long term answer? Will he play the right style? Is he ready for a long Championship season where we'll be expected to take the game to teams? If we stay up will he offer evolution of the playing style?

Personally i think we can't judge his style on what he's done so far, he's got it bang on in every game since Swansea and even in that game he stopped the losing streak.

Big well done and deserved award.
