New names in Forest race
Glenn Hoddle and Mick McCarthy have joined Darren Ferguson as potential candidates to be the next Nottingham Forest manager.
Darragh MacAnthony, the Peterborough chairman, seems to be the main reason for a rush of betting on Hoddle, after he suggested in a tweet that he would fit the bill as far as the new Forest owners are concerned, as a big-name appointment.
Obviously, with his own manager emerging as the early favourite for the City Ground job, the suspicion is that the Posh chairman is mischief making, trying to deflect attention away from his own man.
Amongst those managers currently out of work, McCarthy would seem to fit the bill. He has experience in both the Championship and the Premier League and his stock rose further after Wolves' season took a dive following his sacking in February.
Although he left the club in the bottom three, Wolves managed just four points out of a possible 36 under new manager Terry Connor.
The new Kuwaiti owners at Forest said, in sacking Steve Cotterill, that they wanted to make a new appointment to "to deliver their long-term vision".
