There have been plenty of caretaker managers that have got an initial boost out of the team but it tends to go pear shaped when they get the job full time. Anyone know of a caretaker manager that has got the job and gone on to great things?
Although as a blue I hate to say it, but yes: Paisley, Fagan, Dalglish - promotion from within. That was Liverpool's best spell.
When the backroom staff have the talent, promote from within. Everton could have coached Kendall to take over the squad. Thankfully, he came back.
Unsworth is the obvious choice and deserves the chance.
