Euell to Wimbledon?

The chairmen of AFC Wimbledon, Shrewsbury Town and Swindon Town have all been busy today.

Dons’ chairman Erik Samuelson removed Neil Ardley from his role at Wimbledon after a hugely successful six years, the Shrews’ very own Roland (Wycherley) moved on John Askey after just five months in the role after he was given the difficult job of rebuilding the side that Paul Hurst built. Hurst was just sacked himself by Ipswich and one would thought he’d be favourite to head back to Shropshire.

Askey’s old team Macclesfield, who are marooned to the bottom of League Two, may offer a route back into management for Askey. Macclesfield have broken the mould of recent promoted National League teams, who have mostly flourished at the higher level, showing what a magnificent job Askey did at the Moss Rose.

Then finally yesterday permatan man Phil Brown was sacked by Swindon owner Lee Power, who once put himself in charge of the first team a couple of years back. Brown had a decent season last year, but Town, the opposite to Wimbledon and Shrewsbury, have been on a downward spiral for a few years. Ex-Oldham manager Richie Wellens is expected to take over at the County Ground.

The same old names feature on the potential new Wimbledon manager odds. Steve Cotterill, Darren Ferguson, even Phil Brown but what about a man who really understands Wimbledon and everything it stands for.. Jason Euell?

Euell has been fundamental to the further development of many of Charlton’s academy players working hand in hand with Steve Avory as he prepares them for life in the first team. Charlton’s habit of operating with a shoestring squad has provided many young players a quick route into first team squads. Fortunately we now have Lee Bowyer and Johnnie Jackson presiding over and carefully managing players that Euell has coached and mentored.

Under Euell’s management the U23’s have also won much silverware and Jason was recently given an assistant coach role with England’s U18’s.

Euell has previously shied away from any managerial roles, and academy coaching certainly gives him more job security. Wimbledon have over-achieved under Ardley and all money is going towards their return to SW19, but Euell maybe the perfect fit for the Dons as they enter the next stage of their phenomenal history.

    If Euell got the AFC Wimbledon job I would suggest CAFC consider Steve Brown as his replacement ( currently manager of Margate )

  2. And now Harry Kewell, who lasted 10 weeks at Notts County.
