Jackett's five-and-a-half-year spell with the club came to an end on Tuesday when he stepped down from his position.

The bookmakers have Owen Coyle and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe among the early favourites for the position, but Ambler revealed that the board have yet to identify their main target.

Ambler said: "We'll take our time. I know everyone will be clamouring for a list but there is no list at the moment. We're just sifting through applicants.

"The squad the new manager will inherit is a decent one and we know where we need to strengthen.

"Kenny Jackett left the club in a much better state than when he joined it. We need to make sure that five-and-a-half years of stability is built on.

"We are an ambitious club and we will take our time to get the appointment right."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
