Go Go Gunny

So suddenly the task of looking for a new manager isn't quite so urgent. A four nil win, a feel good atmosphere and all City fans walking with a spring in their step.
When I'm asked who I would like as the next manager, I really struggle for an answer. There really seems to be no perfect candidate. I have my fingers crossed that a recent tip off that Iain Dowie is on his way is wrong and Pardew, Hoddle, or Holloway won't be appearing in the home dugout any time soon, presumably Holloway has decided he doesn't want the job following his stand up routine on national radio last week.
Which leaves us with the three most likely candidates:

Aidy Boothroyd has some decent pedigree plus experience and knows the club. But, is he damaged after what happened at Watford and his reputation for playing the long ball doesn't sit well with some fans even with Malky to sweeten the package.
Paul Ince would be a decent choice but his unease with the press is slightly Roeder-esque and would he be off to pastures new at the first courting of another Premier League club.

Pretty fussy I know but this is what I am looking for - Someone who has played at the highest level, loves the Club, has respect of everyone in the Club and the City, oh and has a 100% record! Step forward Bryan Gunn. OK I know that if things turn sour and the unthinkable of the crowd turning against the great man would be awful, but let's be positive, we know Gunny can motivate, knows his stuff, has coaching badges and if the truth be known he would love to give it a go.
With finances stretched and the future uncertain how about giving Gunny the job until the end of the season with Craig Fleming and Jerry Goss on hand to help along with Bruce Rioch for a bit of experience - all of them have the Club at heart and maybe the start of a bright new chapter in the life of Norwich City - Just when we need it!
