The NOTW says we're to open talks with Martin O'Neill. The Star links John Gregory to the job. Good match reports in just about all the papers after the 3-0 win against Everton.

Most papers concentrate on David Pleat's comments describing the Tottenham job as a good job for whoever comes in to manage.

All Alan Curbishley with the Charlton manager talking down speculation linking him with the vacant manager's job. Mail goes with the biggest story but it gets a mention in the Express, Star and Telegraph. The Times run a brief with David Pleat explaining the OJ Mabizela's comments from a radio piece were misinterpreted over here.

Briefs include Blackburn saying Graeme Souness to remain at club, Dutch keeper Oscar Moens set for Spurs trial and a Scott Parker plea for Alan Curbishley to stay at Charlton. Glenn Hoddle linked with vacant manager's post at Reading, while the Mirror claims OJ Mabizela is unhappy at the club.

Just about the same as yesterday with speculation linking Alan Curbishley and Graeme Souness with the manager's job. Rob Shepherd suggests Curbishley should 'grasp the nettle' in his Express column. The Times reports Ledley King stepping up his training after his hamstring injury.

Speculation continues about a new manager with the Sun and Star linking Alan Curbishley and the Mirror and Express going for Graeme Souness.

All match reports from the 0-0 draw at City and continued speculation about Martin O'Neill.
