Any of the 6 named would be ok. Having advocated for Cooper in the past I'd actually have him 6th out of those in the list. Sticking with Team Knutsen for now though as first choice.

I voted De Zerbi purely because I know more about him and have watched his teams more than the others (Cooper aside). Would be pleased with Knutsen, Haile or Svensson though from what I do know and have read up on them. Less keen on Cooper and Postecoglou

I really don't know anything about any of them... (Cooper aside, and I'm not sure about the cut of his jib, the Celtic dude a little, but he's unlikely to come I suspect) I knew a substantive amount about Graham Potter prior to his arrival and I still wasn't sold... which, obviously, was a misjudgement.

As such, I'm in a terrible place to make any kind of call, and thus I won't be doing so... nor will I be making any ill-informed pre-judgements about the one who is successful... I'll judge them purely on their results with us (which we'll all do anyway, so all of this "what they've done wherever" is a bit pointless - sigh), with anywhere from survival upwards acceptable in my eyes - especially as it's looking likely they're going to be very, very new to English football.

I wonder how much Mr Bloom has had on our next manager on the exchanges 14-1 sounds a nice sort of price to drop to evens overnight

I just hope the next manager can be appointed in the next week or so.
Lots to get on with, could do with this being concluded in a timely manner.

I'm still holding out for Gollardo(Yes, I know he's not coming to us)

Out of that list, my preference today is:

2)De Zerbi
3) Svensson
5) Ange P
6) Cooper
