Roy still puts his wants in to those two

Yes - in a positional sense.

So if Zaha leaves then clearly we would need to replace him, and so on.

The time has come to introduce Roy's replacement. I say this because he is in his early seventies (same as me)and like me could pop his clogs at any time. If that happens where is the club? In crisis again? Some jobs which call for candidate with specific experience to handle a specific project will require the the successful candidate to step down when reaching a specific age, often 70. I have been in such a job and whilst I know I am still more than capable of doing the job properly my boss was concerned about clog popping and the potential damage to his project, hence the step-down age requirement. It also allows for an uncomplicated handover as the 'old fart', i.e Roy (or me) still has the marbles to hand-hold the handover to another.
Perhaps, for the reasons above, none other, it is time for Roy to go.

I get the argument but my understanding is his contract only runs for another season. I feel itís the right thing to do (both for the club and morally) to see this contract through before assigning a successor this time next year.

you are so right succession planning is important, no panics please, Roy is doing a great job with limited talent, if we start trying to play in a more entertaining way with the current squad then we would soon be in trouble. Roy job has been to keep us in the PL which he has and is to date doing, playing any other way needs considerable team investment and at present that seems just not to be there!, you just cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear?

When allowed to play with freedom our boys smash the opposition. We need a striker and an AM in the summer. Sack ole turkey chops off and let's go for it.

Can't keep playing negatively and expect positive results.

Let's be positive and go for it, thanks and bye bye Roy, top 8 here we come!

I donít think you can compare elite level football to other business and just because you plan a successor doesnít mean they are going to be any good.

Roy still still seems a sharp and articulate man. You donít earn the respect of a headstrong squad of footballers by being an old fart. Ray Lewington has worked with him for many years and is ten years younge at sixty two. I hope we remain a steady premier league club capable of surprising the plastics and they both continue for a fair while longer.

Barcelona have done succession management pretty well to be fair, although that might be the exception that proves the rule.

Yes they have, but we don't have the attraction for top rate managers as Barcelona.

We have the best man for the job in Roy. I hope he signs a contract extension for a few more years.

And it's desperate that people are saying he should leave because of his age. He is bright as a button and his age has absolutely nothing to do with anything.

I'l repeat what I have said on here many times after a lot of folk on here knocking Roy and saying get in the likes Howe, Dyche, Hughton, Wagner. If anyone can tell me that Roy is not a better manager than all 4 of them then Id tell them they are mad.

Roy is an easy target because of his age and his nice manner. Open your eyes folks and get his off back and support him because it will be a sad day when he leaves.

There really should be an equivalent of Godwinís Law for mentioning Barcelona in a football debate.
