I really hope that Carol will be instructing her PA first thing tomorrow to start contacting some of the 40+ managerial applicants to arrange interviews.

(and a win on Saturday against Southend should not mean that Pugh is given even more time to "manage" this squad)

She should start by reading them.

Some interesting responses on here to the latest development. I'd like to add some context. In the past TWENTY YEARS we have only achieved a top 7 finish in the league... ONCE. This was under MA

The meltdown on here is laughable.  Please can someone tell me the success we have had in appointing a manager since Micky left? None. Flitcroft being appointed DoF shows our long term visio

Check out wiki.  He's run the family business with his brother and father for 15 years and has his own football academy.  He's not been "just" a player and manager.  In view of the amount of crit

Coughlan gone to 8/15 now and for someone go to that out of the blue without really being mentioned there could be something in it(maybe  a friend of his lumping on it),he was poor at Mansfield(most are though) did very well at Bristol Rovers before walking out on them,i wonder what the Rovers fans think of him and how he plays

Problem is mate most are poor here as well as Mansfield.

I would steer clear based on how well Clough has them playing since Coughlan left .

Unusual odds though

Have to see, we need to sort it quickly.

It’s a 50-50 we either get Bristol Rovers version or the Mansfield one!

It looks like Pugh will be getting Southend game probably in the hope he wins and then we just carry on.

I guess all this should of happened 8 games ago and then we might be better placed,i just cant understand why we are risking everything and letting things drag on just in the hope that things work out as games go by

Normal procedures for Vale over the past few years. A non Port Vale link manager is a must now.

Sadly to me it looks like Carol is going to stick with Pugh due to him not being at the last 2 matches yet its only the training he wont of been involved in.

Carol said we had many very good applications for the job yet we are doing nothing about it.

Thats the conundrum, Carol will be thinking that Pugh has been missing for two games Gibbo and Monty are due to return, coupled with her perceived view we have had no luck in some games (Who could legislate for Browns mistakes ) then keep a steady hand and everything will be ok.

I'm struggling with Askey going, if he's not going to be replaced, OR perhaps he has and Pughs the man, it's a shame that the communication from the club has been so poor, a lot of the criticism fairly/unfairly has been due to rumour and conjecture, if they had come out and said right, Pugh in charge until the end of the season, then the situation will be reviewed, I think the majority, although not happy would put up with it, at the moment everything is up in the air and as per Port Vale usual rumour conjecture and down right mischief making reigns.

I hope and pray that Carol has got it right, because that fat lady from a few seasons ago will be starting to clear her throat and the consequences of relegation to the National league is just unthinkable to me.

Excellent to read. It won't be Pugh. Experienced manager coming.

This line should have been said the day of Askey's sacking and it would have saved a lot of worry. Glad we've got here in the end:

Owner Carol Shanahan has revealed she intends to appoint a manager with a proven record of success having whittled down a 'large number of high quality' applications.

So........After writing all this, Carol has pre emptied my worries and concerns and it seems the wheels are in motion.

Sir John should stay where he is.Best manager ever at Vale .He'd be stupid to expose himself to the modern social media experts. They would destroy the great man.

Good news. My only concern is the pre-requisite to any appointment is that pugh is kept on. What if the new guy doesn't rate him? Should be starting with a completely clean slate with no misunderstanding as to who is the boss when it comes to the playing and coaching side of things
