i hope its McCall what has McCann done in Management to get him a second interview, when the majority of fans have a good word for McCall as Bradford fans do thats ok by me ,fans really do have more of an idea than the money men.

The rumours are it’s between McCall and Grant McCann with both set to be interviewed again on Monday.... don’t understand why were waiting a week to interview them again.
Certain people within the interview process are unavailable until then?

I think McCann would be a really good appointment for Donny. He did okay for Peterborough, made a few mistakes but it was his first ever managerial job. I think he showed enough good things to be given another shot.

High expectations of being competitive and playing football you enjoy watching not winning titles but then my expectations are less than yours given you should be in the top half of the championship given the size of the club but I suppose your sky dollars ran out a long time ago
ITV Digital with us, Wigan are Sky hence why they still have shit loads more than us.

Confirmed as being down to Stuart McCall, Gary caudwell and an unknown 3rd candidate. Apparently caudwell has impressed in his interview but it would be a disaster if we appointed him. Just give McCall the job so we can get cracked on with planning for next season

Can’t help feeling that, whoever gets appointed, the lines “our preparations were hampered due us being behind all the other clubs in the transfer market” and “I found it very difficult to identify and bring in players of the quality I really wanted” will be making an appearance or two in the Keepmoat press room.

McCalls odds are shortening on odds checker,Caldwell should not be having a second interview with his record at Chesterfield even slagging the fans off he has obviously told our gullible board he can do it on the cheap.give it to McCall unless the third contender is Mick McCarthy,I would rate those two equal.

Hasslebank still joint favourite along side McCall so it could be him that’s the third candidate... unless it’s someone outstanding Idd rather we just give it to McCall so we can get cracked on with signing some players and preparing for next season

First time ive read this thread and all of the managers linked with this job is hilarious but I'm not surprised. I heard Joe Bloggs and Louis Tomlinson was in the betting just to make the numbers up.

Nicky Law will be absolutely busting waiting for you to appoint McCall so he can get himself signed up at Donny.

He’s signed him for us two times, Motherwell once and Rangers once (or he certainly managed him at Rangers). Depends if you already have a good midfield, if so he will look great as he barely gives away possession. If your midfield is crap then you will find out he doesn’t tackle, score, assist or generally do anything useful.

Probably announced Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning, the reaction will be why did it take so long if the proffered candidate (fans) gets appointed or complete meltdown and total meh if one of the others get it.

McCall's better than McCann, mistake if that's the case imo.
our board are fecking useless at picking managers(the last two were Dickov and Ferguson)do you need anymore proof, so it will probably be McCann.especially as McCann has been taken out of the betting on odds checker and McCall is drifting, any Peterboro fans who recommend McCann.

Dickov was appointed by John Ryan who is no longer at the Club, Ferguson came to the club with a reputation of attacking football and being able to get promoted from League 1, understandable appointment even though he turned out to be clueless and shite. In respect to McCann where is the proof other than someone lumping £50 on him in the betting that he even made the last 3?

1.when Dickov was appointed was there only Sir John Ryan on the board?

2.if you read my post properly they can't put 50 quid on McCann because he has been taken out of the feckin betting.
