Even now we see decent enough name interested. Karanka and even Hurst would be decent appointments imo. We'll end up with a Mcoist or O'slow— Adam Hutcheon (@adamhutch_safc) November 7, 2017
I'd go Hurst as well. No chance on Allardyce and still think Karanka would be a good option but the idea of a mamager on the up sounds canny— Adam Hutcheon (@adamhutch_safc) November 6, 2017
but this squad needs someone who they respect/fear from the off and gives them a kick up the arse #safc— ParkerSafc (@Parkersafc) November 6, 2017
Hurst, Pulis, McCarthy. In that order of preference. Make it so #SAFC— Mobile Mackem (@mobilemackem) November 6, 2017
Do like the sounds coming from hurst with a reid/phillips in toe would be forward thinking. This being safc mccoist/smith more likely— Steven Elliott (@ElliottSAFC) November 6, 2017
Imo bring in a young-ish manager give them a chance (Hurst) give him some cash (more than 1m) and get behind the team, #SAFC— Jack (@JackLexOhh) November 3, 2017
