So....what now?

So....what now?

Well, he's gone now. There's nothing we can do about it now, no need for animosity and no point in dwelling on what could have been.

It has certainly come as a shock to every single one of us, but it's brought our attention to the fact that everything is far from rosy at this club once again.

But first things first - thanks Nigel for what has been a fantastic two years.

After what happened under Holloway I wasn't sure I'd see us in a Championship play-off battle for quite some time, but in just two seasons that's exactly what we had.

For Hull City fans, you have yourselves a magnificent appointment right here. This is a man, who for the most part, knows exactly what he is doing on that football pitch.

But perhaps most impressive about his work with our club was his unprecedented knack of finding the right players. I can count the number of bad signings he made in two years on one hand with ease.

With that, praise and thanks also to Craig Shakespeare and Steve Walsh, whose work behind the scenes to find these players did not go unnoticed by the City faithful.

But for us, it's yet another new manager ready to come through the door. And with pre-season looming, Mandaric may act quickly to bring his new man in.

He was exactly right about what he said regarding the foundations being left by Pearson - a new manager does not have to alter a great deal to get things right this season.

The quesation now remains at who is available - and more importantly, who wants to lead this team. The most prominent candidates that come to mind are Alan Curbishley and Tony Mowbray, both proven and experienced.

Rumours surrounding the possible return of Port Vale manager Micky Adams have already begun the rounds, whilst there has also been (worrying) talk of the (unfortunately) available Iain Dowie, who has been strongly linked with the post in the past.

Whoever comes in, Mandaric has to get this one right for us to push on this season. Losing Pearson is one thing, but the thought of a player exodus to go with that does not sit well in the mind.

This job should not be considered a posioned chalice by any means. Mandaric may have gone through some in his tenure, but most had their reasons.

After a wonderful season in the Championship last year we should still remain an attractive proposition for a new man in charge.

Can Milan get it right this time around? We have absolutely no idea.
