He's second favourite with pretty much all bookies to become Dundee United's new manager. Seems a bit random to just be nothing in it. Don't think he'll be their next manager personally, but surprised it's not been commented on.

Nah, wasn't he 'favourite' for the Kilmarnock ( ooops,meant St Mirren lol) job a few years back and supposedly even had an interview . Turned out to be complete bo##ocks

Reports earlier in the week said he was "on their list" - whatever that means - though Mackay and McClaren were front runners and supposedly in talks with the club.

Bearing in mind that when St Mirren merely spoke to MM a couple of years ago - along with dozens of other people - the rumour mill quickly twisted it into him being interviewed for the job, it's probably not worth worrying about.

And of course he was odds-on favourite for Swansea this time last year!

Danny Cadamarteri played for them a while back. Bet they don't interview him, as it would be like signing Joey Barton, but with less of a not whiter than white reputation.

Relegation? More like an expulsion due to an arbitrary mid-season rule change. And his multitude of promotions vastly outweighs that, anyway. There's always a subtle undercurrent of nastiness and hostility that accompanies your posts about MM, something that'll always boggle me.

It was an attempt at humour but obviously wasted on you at least!!
BTW it is not nastiness or hostility for heaven's sake just because someone does not 100% share your view on MM. I think this season he was average at best and we should not have been where we were when COVID intervened.. you I am sure disagree but I don't go on about your views.

I saw that piece in the Sun. Sounds like they're talking to a lot of candidates at the moment.

It's probably only fair we should allow him to talk to a Premier division club if they ask, chances like that don't come around too often. But, if Hearts win their legal case, Dundee United might well have their promotion to the Premier division overturned!

Yes these rumours about micky mellon going to swansea city last year and now dundee united are a compliment to him. this proves that we have one of the best managers in the lower divisions and that other clubs want him. not many managers have got 5 promotions on their cv. if as the scottish sun says that mickey is talking to dundee united - surely the owners would of released a statement. so thats why i would not even give this story the time of day.

It wouldn't bother me if he does go there are plenty of experienced managers around to fill the spot .What we need is a total overhaul of playing staff get rid of the geriatrics and the bad buys if he goes he might take Paine and Ray with him.
End this farce about court cases spend the money wisely .It's not a given thing promotion it will take some doing to get out of this league again there are teams who are still willing to spend there way out and all know who they are.
Next season will be very different to what we know whenever it does start.
I have not renewed my season card for the first time in a lot of years, and will chose my games from now on.

Clubs dont generally tend to announce who they are interviewing baldy, it gives potential rival clubs the heads up that managers are available. Hopefully its nothing but if it is he is under contract so will cost them and we move on.

Just a thought - could i be quite cynical and say due to the fact we have been relegated and lost loads of money due to the virus - the only way to get some of it back is to let our manager leave and get compensation for him due to the fact he is still under contract for one more year.

If he goes . I wish him well hes gave us some fantastic days . The only thing which makes it all the sadder is that we cant give him the farewell he deserves . I've questioned some of his decisions but the man has given us all some great times . My worry is Mark has to get next appointment right which he hasn't always done . That along with not signing players until a season date has been confirmed is a real worry . I see some clubs snapping people up , could be genius decision by them or disastrous if season start is delayed further .
Anyways Good luck Micky, thank you for the memories if you go

This is got Ryan Lowe written all over it, absolutely.
He is not going to Bolton as they are appointing the Barrow guy.
If it is Lowe, I hope he brings Danny Mayor with him.
Corey- Ferrier- Mayor: that would be a hell of a strike force for next season.

And with the compo, we may actually benefit from this.

MM has served us well . It has often been said that he is Tranmere through and through and I am sure he has affection for the club but the reality for players and managers alike is that in a precarious career few can afford to turn down opportunities when they arise.
The fact that we have signed no one yet is a positive for it gives the new manager a free hand. The downside is that we have not really made decisions about who should go and who should be retained and that is harder for a new manager to determine. The uncertainty arising may make players like Jennings more likely to respond to any offers from other clubs

Also bear in mind they are a division below us and where they are. Exeter apart there isn't anyone else in their area - even Yeovil is a good distance and time away. I wouldn't mind betting the average away following was significantly lower than ours was in that same division due to lack of local rivalries and that average attendance probably isn't far off double what ours was in the same division. You would have to go back to our Div 1 heyday to find us getting that sort of average. No doubt Devon can illuminate more. I don't think that the potential of Plymouth is necessarily bigger than ours is, but geography means it is probably a lot easier for them to achieve it than it is for us.

i think cause were swamped by the big clubs like Liverpool and so on that i would say Plymouth potential is greater at the minute they sold 6,000 season tickets for last season in league 2 there where games we didn't even get that attendance plus can't find how many Plymouth fans went to Wembley in 2016 but it was a lot more than us from the look of it.And look at the north west teams at the minute in league 1 and 2 all have money problems even before covid-19.The days we use to get a lot of people going are gone sadly.

Argyle had sold 34,023 tickets the day before the Wembley game in 2016, with tickets still available for sale on the day. Clearly a large potential fan base.

Didn't forget Torquay, just didn't think they were relevant to a discussion about average attendance because they were in different divisions so wouldn't have taken any fans there. Admittedly I'd forgotten that Yeovil were also back in tier 5 now. That makes the Argyle attendance even more impressive as their next nearest opposition would be Newport, Swindon or Cheltenham.

I've been reliably told , they are going to announce hes left whilst announcing a replacement at the same time . I think Mark knows about the meltdowns that will peruse and will try and stop them before it begins .The last thing the club needs now is uncertainty, which Is the only reason it hasnt been officially announced already .

If the above is correct then it could be Mike Jackson. If he's going to announce Micky's departure and the new man at the same time. It doesn't leave much time for interviews etc. Although I expect there's been many applications already.

Fully get what your saying guys but it's not a circumstantial thing your either bigger or not... we cannot say they get 3000 more but they are not a bigger club coz of their lucky geographical location.. it doesnt world that way I'm afraid. You can look all you want for the reasons they are bigger , and there are fair reasons pointed out above however non of that changes the fact

Makes sense I suspect they’ve been planning for this a while now Micky will be on decent money and cuts need making, can’t see it being Jacko sounds like a promotion for Parky and possibly a return to the fold for Shaun then. Or who knows could be a surprise announcement of someone like Adkins....

Genuinely have no idea . Just was told off a very reliable person that it was micky out new man in announcement . I'll be very disappointed personally if its Parky or Jacko , think it would stink of cheap option . That said I'll be right behind them and everyone has to start somewhere . I really hope it's a new man with a new set of idea's . I'd imagine Mark will be speaking to people yesterday and today . My gut feeling says Mcgreal , but I'd imagine it's quite an attractive job now a days. But it has to be someone who will continue the passion Micky gave and I see ome guy being able to do that Clint Hill , I'd love to see him with Clarke possibly . Something different .

Yeah I won’t lie I’d be @#$%& if it was Parky more so if Jacko, but hey they could be the next Sir Alex everyone has to start somewhere and I reckon a Parky team would play great footy

Andy parkinson as manager. is it april fools day. you might aswell give it to mr magoo. people now are just being silly. if andy parkinson was manager, he would take us lower than chester fc. so stop with these stupid ideas. there is one manager who has got a house on the wirral - rafa benitez.

Imagine the meltdown at east Stirling when Alex Ferguson was appointed or when shankley was appointed at carlisle .

As for Porto appointing someone that was bobby Robson's translator stupid appointment clearly no managerial experience.

Contact says apparently McGreal has left/will leave his job at Colchester in a similar situation to when Micky left Shrewsbury, fans clamouring for him to go and will be speaking to MP. Just rumour but he was OTM with Dundee

Really am shocked by this, given all that has happened lately too did not see this coming, strange one for a club in the SPL yes but what is there to achieve in Scotland? Unless ur Celtic or Rangers youve got no chance must be a good payday for him and obviously a move back up north might be a pull but always felt he loved it here. Big loss but wish him all the best all in all done a great job, personally would like to see Jacko given it

Sorry mate , but it must be April fools day if you believe Rafa would even give a seconds thought to joining little old Tranmere in league two

Micky, if he does well, would be in with a chance of the Scotland job. It’s not about his ability, it’s about the lack of appropriate candidates for that job. Plus, the money will probably be more than we’re paying him.

When Baldy wrote his comments about Parkinson he must have been confusing Parkinson with himself; not least as any new manager right now eventually looking like they were putting Tranmere in a similar situation to Chester, would be sacked before that situation even occurred. Palios wouldn't be doing his job very well if a new incumbent was given enough time to get Tranmere relegated twice, before a whiff the sack was in the air.

I'd trust Parkinson to be better optiona than Baldy thinks, but I'd be seriously calling the Palios' into question if they gave the job to Baldy, but then considering he still hasn't had the cahonjes to outline his history of running clubs and why he is better than Ann Budge, I wouldnt be suprised if Baldy thought he would be a better Tranmre manager than most of the names people have put out on here.

Cheers Micky . Gave us some great times . Good luck up in Scotland. Seems I was wrong unsurprisingly with a hasty replacement. Glad of that as this has to be the right man . Interesting mark says hes half way to a decent squad, but wierd that with a new man coming in .

Interesting press release.... what do others think?
To me a bit on the terse side - just disappointment perhaps or maybe a degree of disagreement?
Most depressingly of all no mention whatsover of any court action and seeming acceptance we are in L2... so I guess all that talk was just that.... real shame! We have been treated appallingly

Was that spear a typo or you hinting that Mellon's replacement could be Jay Spearing as player-manager? (Sm100)

I'd say because palios knew he's been applying for every job going that it was inevitable he'd get one sooner or later
