JOHN SHERIDAN is set to be unveiled as Plymouth Argyle's new manager on Monday, writes Chris Errington.
The 48-year-old former Oldham Athletic and Chesterfield boss impressed in an interview with club officials today.
Argyle have moved switfly to find a successor to Carl Fletcher, who was sacked by the struggling League Two club on New Year's Day.
Sheridan was the manager of Oldham from 2006 to 2009, leading them to the League One play-off semi-finals in 2007.
He was appointed as Chesterfield boss in the summer of 2009 and they were crowned as League Two champions in 2010/11.
Sheridan was capped 34 times by the Republic of Ireland during his playing career as a midfielder.
He was relieved of his duties at Chesterfield at the end of August after the Spireites picked up only two points from their first three league games.

    I think deep down he could be a good manager but the problem is that many Pafc fans /Plymothians are BIGOTS of the highest order towards northern or scottish people.i seen it with all the utter tripe surrounding ,Bobby Williamson in the past, hints about sturrock and all. Already on the websites we get the "likes a pint" or "goes to the pub" threads so common among our lovely janner brethren. Give it a rest you self riotous ***** pieheads , Brian Clough was a Pis*head look what happened with him, Anything is better then Fletch, Nance and RO

    hmmm strange reaction from the fans really , john sheridan fits the bill superbly , he has had much success at our level and should be welcomed with open arms ... but no it seems 50/50 with the fans . Oldham Athletic 1 June 2006 15 March 2009 games 151 won 61 drawn 43 lost 47 percentage wins 40.40 % Chesterfield 9 June 2009 28 August 2012 games 160 won 63 drawn 38 lost 59 percentage wins 39.38 % his record is one many managers would strive for and all on a shoestring budget so please to the doubters will you tell us all what your problem is ??? welcome john and good luck because with some of these supporters you are going to need it !

    Great choice so give him a chance. We wanted experience and we got it and he was sacked by Chesterfield after 3 games this season which was stupid Some of you are never satisfied. Even if Fergy took the role some would moan. Its a step up and in the right direction. He'll do well Sidewinder your a disgrace to yourself and if you are genuine PAFC fan, which I doubt, well I wish you weren't

    Let's hope he has sorted out that temper of his, I'm sure David Friio remembers that headbutt well. Still if he is the new manager and we have had no real confirmation yet, we need to support him as the manager. He has a lot to prove though to those with long memories
