No where near favourite in any of the betting. I would be suprised.

Mark has just been promoted to Head Coach presiding over a pool of talented players in what I'm predicting will be a special season for FGR.

He won't be going to Millwall. He will move on at some stage but it won't be this season.

But as has been said, there are others reputedly in the running too.

Thought it had been a while since MC was last linked to another job. How many is that now?

I would say this seems the least likely of the lot, Millwall's squad/ethos is in no way set up to play in MC's style, and you only have to look at Nathan Jones at Stoke to see what can happen if a footballing manager goes up into a side not suited to his style of play. Millwall have the lowest possession stats in the Championship, and are arguably at their ceiling anyway. Going somewhere like Brentford, where he was also 'strongly' linked, would have seemed more likely imo.

I'm sure he will move on at some point, but I'd imagine he'll at least want to try and get another promotion on his CV this season first, and finish the job he's started.

He could change the playing style. I would have thought that this would be a very attractive opportunity for Coops. Its close to home, a real challenge and a potentially big club. It would be a significant step up and reward/cash in for his success with us. He'd certainly get more love from the supporters than he gets from us.

It may be that this has come at the wrong time for him though. We are challenging for promotion which, if achieved, would increase his cachet even more. He is also an integral part of the set up at FGR and has been shown a good deal of loyalty. Maybe he feels he needs to repay that for a bit longer and see where this season takes us. I really hope he stays.

Millwall, although infamous are not a potentially big club.

They are arguably the smallest Championship club potential wise.

I think that Luton Town are the smallest Championship club in terms of their gate with a capacity of just over 10,000.

Neil Harris is Millwall's leading goal scorer with 138 goals over 400 odd appearances during two spells playing for them, he is a hero at the club. In between time Harris played for Nott'm
Forest for a season and a bit and proved a flop, I don't think he scored a single goal.

But Millwall are certainly infamous, or rather their fans are and they're not known for being a team that plays the game the right way either.

I can't see Cooper having the slightest interest in moving there, if things don't go well he could well be sacked before the season is out.

Getting barracked by his own fans isn't likely to make him stay here either though; there seems to be an element of fgr support hell bent on wreaking the club, don't these people like League Football?

Arguably. They have got a ground capacity of over 20,000 and weren't they in the Premiership 30 years ago - I know that is a long time ago and it is unlikely they will get there again any time soon but any club with that pedigree must surely live in hope that's achievable.

Irrelevant to the main discussion I know but I am certain I saw Harris score for Forest. From a couple of yards out, Trent End goal, part of a big win against someone.
Sometimes 90 minutes is just not enough.

Agree with some of this, although it isn't close to home. I believe he lives near Birmingham? Also his playing style requires time to implement and a squad capable of carrying it out. Not sure he'd have either at Millwall. We'll see if they make an official approach though.

You might be right about where MC is based I have it in my mind that he goes up and down the M4 but I can’t remember why

Personally I hope mark stays for the long term. End of . And I mean long term. This club is a unique opportunity, for the long term well beyond a normal hire em and firem wild west, or wild central london.

Keep calm and craic on Mark.
