Haven't got a clue how to use Twitter so posting here.

Initially, sad to see Wilder go, but the more I think on it, the more I think his limitations were showing. I think he will save the Cobblers this year, but then struggle similarly, and most likely won't complete 3 and a half years there.

The next appointment is potentially the most important in our history, without fear of melodrama. I feel we are a perfectly attractive proposition, and there are also plenty of proficient managers out of work. But it needs to be a diligent hard-worker with a brain but no ego, and there are far fewer of those that fit the bill.

Unless Sir Alex wants to come out of retirement…I'm presently for Sean O'Driscoll.

Firstly, Chris Wilder's press conference at Northampton is already under way. Here are some early details:

10:31am

Good morning everyone and welcome to our Monday morning Oxford United chat.

It’s been a dramatic weekend at the club, which has seen Chris Wilder’s five-year reign as manager come to an end after a confusing muddle on Saturday night.

Over the next hour we want to hear your thoughts on the past 48 hours, Wilder’s reign in general and what you want to see happen next.

Oh, and there was also a game – a home win – which has been all but forgotten.

Deep breath, let us begin...

O'Driscoll for me too. Hope it's not Allen, we need someone to get us out of this league and keep us in the top half at least of Division one. Allen, struggled in this department, plus he is too much like Wilder.
