Are you unemployed? Woah! Hold on, I mean: are you an unemployed manager? If yes, then Colchester United could provide you with a new workplace.

The Essex side have an intriguing list of early favourites for their hot-seat, the managerial role spectacularly vacated by Paul Lambert this week but have pledged not to poach his replacement.

Their approach, a reaction which anticipates a lengthy wrangle with Norwich City over remuneration for Lambert, should prove recession-busting for the currently jobless person they eventually pick, then.

Encouragingly, Robbie Cowling thinks he can lure a manager “perhaps even more talented” than the man he has just lost.

Speaking on the U`s calm approach to finding a successor, which could take anything up to three weeks, chief executive, Steve Bradshaw also explained to BBC Radio Essex: “It would be hard for us to approach other clubs as we`d have to pay compensation.”

That would appear to rule of Mark Kinsella, coaching and Charlton, Chelmsford`s Martin Allen and Rotherham manager, Mark Robins right away.

  • Not sure I would want Allen or Robins to be honest. But why are we afraid to pay compensation? Surely we will have cash from our own compensation and any money from the sale of Hammond

  • Me neither – not to keen on them, but just leaves the people without jobs. Wasn’t sure if Dowie is still at Newcastle so left him out of the article… what about Paul Buckle? Interesting there!

  • Buckle has today been offered a contract extension by Torquay – are they getting a bit nervous do you think??

  • Yes, I do think they are worried!! Natural reaction, really… we have made it clear we are not going to steal a manager so they are just protecting thier interests!

  • Seems strange we wont pay anything. We must have a bit of cash after recent events and if we need it to bring the right man then so be it. But there are some top unemployed managers out there.
