we're only gonna get someone fron non leagur or someone out of work, a popular choice would be allen but i personally dont think he would come back, totally random idea what about nigel clough?, liam daish has been mentioned before? jim smith no longer in charge at oxford would be an experienced choice?

Tisdale is not liked by many an Exeter fan - apparently he could be chopped if their results arent better over xmas

Good news. Now the Chief Executive who appointed Butcher, Fitzgerald and Rosenior - Mr Keith Dickens must resign or be fired before he is allowed to make the next appointment whoever that may be. He simply is not up to the job as his comments in the recent programme notes and in the press demonstrate.

Daish maybe an option, don;t know about Tisdale. Smith is an Oxford man through and through..

Clough - think he is settled at Burton, I am sure other teams have approached him from the League and he hasn't gone.

How about Nick Holmes at Salisbury?

Interesting to see this guy, who is a big know all, when it comes to managing. Now seems to be on the pile of managers who failed to do their job.


His columns in the press and radio programmes, have been littered with verbal attacks on both players and managers of the England team. Perhaps the FA should ask TB if he wants the job, but then the press would moan. Its not always about the spirit of a team or the players, sometimes the way a manager does his job, can have a detrimental effect on the team. TB seems to think managing is like playing the game. Its fine if he can motivate himself, but doing that to the team is a different matter. I doubt Jose will be looking for a job.

i'd love to see someone like jose or fergie or arsene come in to a small club.

i mean, why do we think it's harder to manage arsenal than brentford? when you play football manager (which i know is not real life) you tend to start with the good teams, then try and do well with smaller teams as you get better at the game.

i know it's about money, but i'd love to see a manager who'd done a lot and got enough cash come and try their hand at lower league management.

Just wondering did Butcher actually have any tactical nouse or did he simply rely on the Caged Tigers ,Passion and Aggression type motivation while in charge of Brentford.

He was I recall one of those who during the end of the Sven era was calling for an English manager for England at whatever cost to put some passion in the side.

Perhaps now he's free he might want the job??

Glad to see Butcher has gone. I saw Brentford play Brighton many years ago and always hoped to see them do well since.

For a few years now I've been irritated by Butcher's ability to air his views on many football issues (Sven for example) to the world, and I think with recent results in mind perhaps he can now accept that he doesn't in fact know it all.

Its a shame for Brentford though and I hope they can sort themselves out and finally find a way in to the championship in the next few years.

Before Butcher there was talk of the likes of Sherringham who doesn't seem to be doing too good at Colchester at the moment, so his days maybe numbered. Where is Martin Allen anyway?

Give Steve McLaren a go. Perhaps he can part with some of his England failure pay-off to buy a few new players.

Butch must be the worst manager ever. What a joke he was up at Sunderland too. If he ever gets given another job in management, the chairman would want shooting.

Not a fan of the hire-'em-fire-'em routine.

We don't have a decent team and can't afford a decent team.

I'd have given any of them since Allen - Rosenior, Fitzgerald, Butcher - a lot longer to turn things around, even if that meant a relegation (which we got anyway).

It just can't be useful for our players (which aren't the greatest around) to have to keep switching to somebody else's training ground routines and tactics, least of all mid-season.

Butcher said mid-table this season, promotion next. We are mid-table at present, though dire.

Despite all this, we could write a really nice letter to Reading and Steve Coppell asking for his services. A really nice letter.

Then again, I'm a big admirer of Andy Scott and think he'd do no worse a job than getting in any other LL manager without any experience of the club.

How very sad that TB has gone. Who runs the club? the board or the fans? Saints went through 9 managers in 10 years and got relegated. Brentford have had three in 18 months and with that sort of stability you get nothing sorted. Surely a board of any company must support THEIR manaager, Brentford have a lot going for them off the pitch but they needed stability on it. TB should have been for the long term - given time to build and develop a club and to secure it's footballing foundations, why has he not been given time? What exactly do the board think TB could do when he's lost an entire first team and has had to reconstruct an entire team over the summer. It really is pathetic, the board of BFC must have reviewed TB management credentials before thet appointed him, they must have felt confident he was the man for this rebuilding job! I think it's a very sad day and marks the begining of the end of football league status, the exact opposite of what BFC desire. Serious questions need to be asked of your board!

Great England skipper - but whenever I hear him on radio, or see him interviewed on TV I just don't like the sound of the man. Most good managers (not all but most) are decent blokes as well. Hope you get someone who can get you back on track.

Good riddance. Brentford will begin to prosper now that this deadwood burden has been lifted from their shoulders.
It goes to prove that his footballing nous was all gob and puts his consistent dissing of Becks into perspective. Perhaps now he'll keep his opinions to himself! <laugh>

You either need an ex-pro (recently retired, for example like an Ince) who can get players going and call on contacts in the game. Or a manager who knows how to work on a nothing budget.

Terry Butcher was neither of these. He's been dining out on bloody forehead for years now and is not a manager.

I'd love MA back to be honest. He wouldn't come back though.

The people that should look at themselves are the board.
We were a top 6 League 1 side and now we're heading for the conference and oblivion.
If we keep changing managers we'll get nowhere fast.
Mr Dyke,make sure this next appointment is the correct one,otherwise leave our club alone and go and ruin somebody else that you claim to support. <doh>

Why was Tery Butcher appointed in the first place ? His track record apart from his stay at Motherwell is sacked at Coventry,Sunderland, Sydney and now Brentford.He was a poor choice.Advertise and see who applies !

So Terry Butcher has lost yet another managerial position.

I suppose it gives him more time to write his inane columns for this site, where he criticizes international managers and players who are far better than him. He really is a joke of a man, and it's unfathomable as to why the BBC employ him to write here... a manager who's been sacked from every position he's held.

When is Titus Bramble's column about defending starting?

Terry Butcher always talked a good game and to be fair he did do a reasonable job whilst he was in chrage at Motherwell in the SPL. Is not about time players to took some responsibility for poor performances?

If past history is anything to go by they'll let Andy Scott caretake for a few games and if he gets a couple of reasonable results - which is quite likely because the team's morale will improve in the short term after TB's departure - they'll give him a permanent job if only because it's a cheap option. Then they'll start losing again and Blue Square, here we come!

Len Harvey at Forest Green would be my choice. He has been consistently successful at this level and would have contacts to enable him to bring a number of players from NL hopefully.

How exactly does Steve Butcher continue to get jobs??? His utter failure to progress any team he's ever managed is becoming quite comedic to watch.

It's tight between him and Souness as to who is actually the most pathetically weak manager in the past 15 years, but one more job and the inevitable failure that will follow will put Butcher clear at the top I think.

This will give Butcher the opportunity for him and McNulty to spend more time together in their anti-Beckham support group and hopefully clear up his unnatural obsession. Butcher has been abysmal wherever he has coached. I'm glad he's out of management.

Andy Scott. Too nice. He was responsible for bringing Mackie, Thorpe, Paed et al to the club. He's just as culpable as Butcher.

We've had 3 'nice bloke' managers on the spin.
Let's have a right nasty piece of work next.

MA is a red tank top. Sorry. herring.

Glad to see he has gone as he was tactically inept and seemed to care more about his next job with the BBC.
Persoanlly id like to see either Martin Allen, Liam Daish or Neale Cooper come in. But knowing our board there's probably more chance of getting Pete Docherty!

Looks like TB is finding out that Management is not as easy as pundatory. How long did he last in Sydney before he was fired, and now this one. If he comes back to the BBC I hope everyone has a good laugh at anything he says. He was a top player but lacks wisdom, respect and intelligence for management. At least Hansen, Lawro etc have the good sense to make fair and usually constructive comments that are not just vicious. Maybe Joey should also have a go here as well!

Overated as a player... now proved he couldnt cut it as a manager ..could not manage a village team in Australia (Sydney FC)... Butcher is not even fit to lace Becks boots... let alone have an opinion on him... I bet Becks is laughing his head off... Pity the next club this muppet gets his hands on !!
