Who next for Boro?

Last updated : 04 May 2006 By Reggie Holdsworth
The top candidates are Tony Mowbray, Martin O'Neill, Alan Curbishley and Iain Dowie.

Mogga would be the fans choice and I am sure that Steve Gibson will have spoken to the Boro legend who has had a successful spell managing Hibernian in Scotland for the past two years.

O'Neill has been a target for Newcastle and is rumoured to be high on the list of candidates for the Sunderland job should the Naill Quinn consortium take over at the Stadium of Shite.

Alan Curbishley recently resigned as manager of Charlton after fifteen years at the South London club. He has stated he would like a rest from football but may be tempted back if he is offered the job.

Dowie is a surprise candidate who steered Crystal Palace to promotion via the play-offs two years ago. After going straight back down he has guided Palace to the play-offs again.
