Why would anyone in their right mind offer mcnulty a mangers job in the football league. Possibly a national league north but nothing more . Would be a massive step back for us in my opinion


I bet some people said that about Jose Mourinho when he got his first job at a bigger club then Tranmere or Villas Boas when he got his first job with no playing experience to call upon and they did well in more demanding circumstances at bigger high stakes clubs.

Look what Karl Robinson started achieving with MK Dons in a higher league, when he was younger than McNulty is now and had no playing experience in the league at all.

I respectfully feel your comments are a tad unfair to McNulty, because you have no more way of knowing if he would be good bad or indifferent as the likes of I, as only time would tell; however weren't there a few people when Tranmere were still in league 1, putting forward the notion of backing Goodison if he had ever been given the job?

Some managers like Martin O'Neill achieve a lot starting out from modest managerial beginnings, but others do well from big managerial beginnings such as Kenny Dalgleish in his first spell at Liverpool.

Mellon is probably likely to stay, but if someone offered his position to McNulty as player manager, something Dalgleish did amicably at in tougher circumstances, at least the players would know McNulty and he would know the club and that could be a real boon, as he would not need time to settle in, he could try to hit the ground running.

However I still think Mellon will stay, so McNulty is not likely to get offered it anyway.
