DF and SP need to identify a manager who can simply sustain keeping us above float and developing players and the squad as a whole. Looking at the players we've been scouting it appears the next manager will have to work with players on the rise in the second tier.
If Roy is still here at the start of next season, within 7 games he will have been our longest serving manager since we came up! Thats the most stability we will have had!

The biggest fear of getting in any young(ish) manager that is capable of successfully doing the above, is that they will be off to a better/bigger club at the first sign of interest! Someone mentioned Everton, West Ham, Wolves above. Well, how many of those managers would be off when the bigger clubs come calling, and not just English based. We'd suffer the same fate and just join the merry-go-round of managers searching for stability again.

Whilst I'm not suggesting we stick with Roy purely because he is far less likely to do the off at the first opportunity for a bigger club, that is clearly the gamble for the club, but this does at least offer that opportunity of stability, for a bit more than short term.
