Milan Mandaric is looking to make his latest Leicester managerial appointment by the middle of June, so this new man can have time to prepare for the League One season ahead of him: ‘My goal is to appoint a manager not later than the 15th of June,’ Mandaric told BBC Radio Leicester. ‘We are generating interest of the people which is very encouraging.’

Billy Davies, out of work since leaving Derby last season, is the early favourite although former Wycombe boss Paul Lambert is also in the picture and has already stated his desire to continue his managerial career in England if possible.

Who do you think will become Mandaric’s seventh appointment in a year?

  • Velamir Zajec? Alain Perrin? Graham Rix? or any other of the magnificent names that he has chosen before. You’re in for a magical appointment, probably be Holloway…

  • Would anyone seriously want to go to Leicester? No disrespect to Leicester but the chairman seems to go through more managers than the avergae chairman. They will feel under so much pressure to get instant results. A new man will need a little time to settle in, I am sure if you don’t get a great start you may be looking for a new manager by September!!

  • Will the new manager have a team when he arrives if it is left until the middle of June. It will not leave the new incumbent long to build a team for next season.

  • We’re in such a mess it is hard to imagine how to start putting it right.

    I’ve just written down a casual list of requirements as of now and it is much longer than could ever be healthy.

    Given that situation I cannot imagine why a currently successful manager would easily take the risk of coming here, apart from the financial temptation.

    Ince and Grayson have been mentioned but, for me, the best comment I’ve read is the unconvincing one that suggests consortia might be preparing a bid for the club.

    Trouble is I’d doubt the consortia would be local and wonder if any other “investor” would be any better or more stabilising than MM.

    You might imagine so but you wouldn’t know and meanwhile, while people blandly talk about a quick return to the Championship, each day that passes makes our chances of success next season more difficult.

    I cannot see any evidence to suggest that MM made any firm contingency plans in the event of relegation, despite that scenario having been a real prospect for two months.

    So once again, and rather typically of Leicester, we’re playing close-season catch up again.

    Which leads me to think that, even if Milan does achieve the unlikely and secure the services of a quality manager, City will still do well to finish anywhere near the top three.

  • I’ve heard that Milan was seen in his office with his managerial shortlist the other day and was chanting something along the lines of “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall..!”

  • Interesting to see the manager poll alongside here. Ince was never going to be our manager much as he would have been a good choice.

    Last season was the time to have made a move for him.

    Our best chance now is Grayson and why not because he should always have been a leading contender.

    It’s seriously worrying though.

    If Grayson is a no-go then the club should seriously consider involving Beaglehole.

    Many fans seem to think we should give youth its head and we really do have some decent prospects who are at the stage of their careers where they should make an impression.

    No-one is better qualified to mould them into a unit than Beaglehole.

    The bloke is considered good enough by Nigel Worthington to manage two Irish youth squads so I’m quite sure he’s good enough for a Division One outfit and we would save ourselves the problems associated with another major upheaval.

  • Will Milan ever find a manager (other than Harry Redknapp) that he can actually work with…. He must think it’s like looking for the holy grail
