WELL get off Championship Manager (aka Alan Shearer) and start giving your CV a polish.

Yes, the search to replace Rick Parry is on. Specialist recruitment agency Odgers Berndston is in charge of finding the right candidate who will be offered a "significant package".

So what exactly are they looking for I hear you cry? Ability to recognise the need to tie down key players to a contract? Experience of dreaming up a fair ticketing system? You wish.

No, to work for a club that is in "a unique position to leverage its brand and expand its commercial opportunities nationally and internationally" you will need:
  • World-class sales and marketing skills
  • Successful management of global media/pr
  • A bad haircut and a wardrobe full of dodgy ties...(made that one up obviously)
  • And a love of the game would be "advantageous"
