Swindon fans must until next next Wednesday for the appointment of Town’s new manager.
The board have established an 8 man shortlist plus Paul Bodin who has put forward his name.
The Eight (Maybe)
Previous Clubs: Bristol Rovers.
Summary: Has Swindon Town in his veins. He did a sound job at Rovers and has been seen at several Town fixtures.
Previous Clubs: Scunthorpe United, Aston Villa (youth), Coventry City (coach), AIK, Västerås SK, Newcastle United Jets, Walsall, Newcastle United (academy), Luton Town.
Summary: Was widely tipped to replace Maurice Malpas before Danny Wilson’s appointment. Plenty of experience.
PAOLO DI CANIO:
Previous Clubs: None.
Summary: Rookie who holds the UEFA Pro License. He would generate media attention and ‘bums in seats’.
Age: Ayr United, Colchester United, Ipswich Town, Derby County, Hearts, Southampton, Scotland, Crystal Palace.
Summary: Premier League Manager of the Year in 2001. A wealth of experience at most levels.
Previous Club: Falkirk.
Summary: Promising coach who did decent things during his time at St. Mirren.
Previous Clubs: Falkirk, Hibernian.
Summary: Showed a lot of promise at Falkirk but struggled at Hibs. League Two would be a good place to re-start his career in management.
Previous Clubs: Ipswich Town, Queens Park Rangers.
Summary: Former Oxford player who looked likely to enjoy a long career in management after a decent spell at Ipswich Town. However, he’s struggling since with only a brief spell at QPR added to his management C.V.
Previous Clubs: Chelsea (coach), Portsmouth, Oxford United, Hearts, Glenn Hoddle Academy (coach).
Summary: Another experienced coach. However, his link to Oxford (and his stint in prison) would make Rix a very unpopular appointment with a vast amount of the supporters.
