Mandy wanted him, a section of our fan base didn't.

 

In retrospect, should we have taken him?

Absolutely yes it's about time this club and fans got of their hi horse and realise we will only get out of this league with someone who has been there and done it. Him Steve Bruce would all be top candidates for me also jokanovic from Fulham would be a fantastic appointment

total grudging respect for his record as a manager  i think his keeping rovrum up a few years ago from being virtually relegated was unbelievable 

 

others might want success at any cost 

 

but I can't stand him personally and wouldn't want him anywhere near this club or evans whom MM considered as well

The go to man for promotion, love him or loath him his record is better than anyone at getting out of this league.

The fact he is a grunter wouldn't bother me in the slightest if he got us.

As previously said, if Milan had brought him in we would have been up seasons ago.

Didn't Colin himself say that they talked and decided against it, due to his connections with the grunts.

Colin wanted the job, but Mandy was concerned about attendances.

 

So they agreed that it was a non-starter.

I remember hearing Colin talking about the job offer on the radio.

 

It was the reaction of a section of our fan base which scared Mandy off.

 

I remember one Owls fan ringing up Football Heaven and saying that the sight of Colin made him feel physically sick.

He has that effect on most people, but it's not a beauty contest. lol

He is the only manager I would swap Jos for Now.

Knew what he was doing at this level. I was in favour at the time Mandaric asked.

Colin thinks he’s the biggest stirrer around when, in fact, he’s just a sad old git

A big no from me.

His previous comments about our club would render him unacceptable to a large section of our fans.
