Derby County are in a bit of a mess. The Rams have been perennial promotion chasers for a few seasons now, but after missing out on a spot in the top division, it seems to have gone a little stale at the iPro Stadium.
Indeed, Derby were beaten in the play-offs by eventual promotion winners Hull City last season, and their current campaign appears to be operating with a hangover from the last, with the club having claimed only 10 points from 11 games – including a paltry two wins.
The poor run of form has cost Nigel Pearson his job and with Chris Powell struggling to steady the ship as caretaker manager, it’s clear that a permanent boss is needed sooner rather than later.
A fair few candidates are out out there and we at Football FanCast have selected some with the view to asking YOU who you want in the Derby dugout.
