Fairclough cautious in manager hunt
Barnet director of football Paul Fairclough is keeping an open mind over how best to fill the vacant manager's role at Underhill.
The Bees are still searching for a successor to Martin Allen, whose short-term contract expired after he ensured survival in npower League Two on the last day of the season.
Fairclough told BBC London 94.9: "We're taking it very seriously who we actually appoint. We've obviously not had the formula right for the last few years so we may do things a bit differently.
"We're at a moment in time where we've almost got a blank piece of paper. The club is moving forward and it's well known we've got a year left at Underhill.
"I've been looking at various models around the country. I want to get away from the scenario where the manager is the be-all and end-all of the club.
"Once I've found a couple of suitable candidates, I'll introduce those people to the chairman."
