With Michael Flynn, Sol Campbell and Kevin Nolan shortlisted for the job I can't help but feel as though MT's name should be thrown into the hat...

We're not going to do this "MT" to wherever there's a vacancy again are we? Those named can have it. Sol Campbell, Kevin Nolan????? Jeez, Not exactly setting the managerial world alight

You're exactly right. Besides from Michael Flynn, who has done a wonderful job at Newport, those other managers have achieved far less than MT in the last 5 years than what he's done in the last 18 months!

Lincoln is a very appealing job for any manager in our league at this moment in time. Gareth Ainsworth is also shortlisted. But with the squad he has at Wycombe, having added in Rolando Aaron's from Newcastle they will do very well this year.

I'm totally missing your point with this thread. Taylor had an OK season last year with a squad that never looked like promotion material, and we know full well we're off to a flyer this term. Why on earth is he likely to interest Lincoln City at the moment? I doubt if their fans would be very impressed. The current season will be the yardstick as to how marketable Matt Taylor is.

The Cowleys will be a very hard act to follow. I imagine Matt feels he's still learning and has plenty of time to advance his career in the future. Think Lincoln will start to slip down the table.

The Lincoln equivalent named their potential front runners - all the names mentioned above (I wonder if the OP took from the Lincoln rag) plus a couple of others but no Taylor.

Exactly, With respect to MT he hasn't achieved anything of note yet, This season it's his team, Come end of season then we can say if it's been a decent one or not

Taylor lead us to an outside promotion spot without stockley, boateng and Troy brown (who was arguably our best centre back) in his first season as a manager.

He epitomises the ideology of youth from top to bottom.

Yes its early doors, but to question why a club like Lincoln would not be even remotely interested in Taylor is disrespectful to the work that he has already put in.

I was sceptical about the appointment at first. And even the style of play leads a lot to be desired. However, bit by bit we are seeing how much desire these players have to play for there manager. Our fitness levels are impeccable, and unless you didn't notice we beat Carlisle in a game where radio devon commentary said it would not be an exaggeration if we scored 8 goals.

I'm glad that he's been recognised as someone who could step into the Lincoln job. As long as that's as far as it goes.

It's not disrespectful, it's that MT in footballing terms to other clubs is that he hasn't done anything of note outside of this club, If he gets us promoted then that might be different

I was never skeptical about Matt but he is still learning. Lincoln is a club with a big following and ambition. The Cowleys for all their sins are a big act to follow : they picked Lincoln up and have taken them far, inspiring the local community too. It would be hard to follow them at this stage of the season. Maybe if Matt takes us up to Div 1 and we establish ourselves there another club might go for him. Just my opinion of course :
