Hurrikeen doesn't appear too happy about it...

Hurrikeen: Fucking fuming. This IRA loving arse bandit over Dowie?

Hurrikeen: @jaycooke1 What's right about him? 4months coaching experience at Sunderland after looking after York City U9's. Pro Sinn Fein / IRA

Was a decent centre half for Derry City and I loved him when we had him. Never struck me as the brightest bloke but I'd heard he was doing all right at Sunderland. This is seriously random.

Bizarre. At least the LJ cheap option made sense.

You can have P.Diddles back.

Has a 7% approval rate among our fans.

Put it into perspective since the late 90s when the supporters club forum was formed none of our various shite managers has polled less than 20. Not even Dean fucking Saunders in his pomp.

If carlsberg did cheapo nasty penny pinching cuntflap chairmen then simon corney would be number one. 110 applicants of 'the highest calibre' and we end up with a fuckin under 16 coach. I handed over £350 for a new season ticket last week as I felt the club was on the up at last with the new stand nearly finished and the optimism that came with it also. This has just sent all the fans back a few pegs.

Also referring to a former IRA member and terrorist as 'a legend' hasn't sat well with me either.

With my missus jus having a baby it was going to be tight to afford a season ticket, but this appointment has made my decision easy, not a chance. It's an absolute head fuck of a decision, even Holden as assistant is fuckin woeful.

I don't understand the logic behind this appointment. Surely Oldham had better candidates that they interviewed?

I thought that this would have been the perfect job for Rosler to get back into management, seeing as he lives up in Manchester.

Sounds very similar to the Steve Eyre appointment with us (although he does seem like a nice bloke.)
Expect to bring in premier league youngsters who aren't interested and are only there because they have to be.

Curzon Ashton....and Carlisle
all I can tell you about Darren Kelly is he was the most expensive flop Carlisle even bought.

Came to us as a part of our Irish revolution under Roddy Collins, at the time was 'supposedly' the best player in Ireland (by that I mean who was currently playing in Ireland not them in the English game) we spent over £100k on him, a fortune in wages and he was utterly utterly utterly awful.

at least if its one bonus, he has played in the lower leagues and being a crap player doesn't mean your a crap manager.

Sounds like an Aidy Boothroyd out of the blue from youth level type appointment.

It makes no sense whatsoever. Cheap option. Embarrassing decision.

It's a bizarre appointment, on the face of it you can draw assumptions of it being the cheap option, but you can't write him off every good manager has to start somewhere.
