He seems a thoroughly decent bloke and he is right that he (and all other managers) do gamble with numerous other people's livelihood's and financial future with his decisions.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

Wouldn't seem so.   Doubt Southampton will be either.   The Millwall game was a terrible effort and probably sealed his fate after a couple of 'bad' wins extended his stay.

Slightly left field, but rumours around the dressing room (have a mate who works at the club) is that Steve Boulds name has been mentioned.

Recently been 'moved' from Assistant Manager to U23 coach at Arsenal. Doesnt seem happy in new role and wants to move up, not down.   He was born in Stoke and obv had a good playing career there too. 

Currently 33/1, so might not fit the Coates requirements for the position, but if the 'names' turn the job down.....you never know.

Probably see Chris Hughton/David Moyes/Alan Pardew in the stands v WBA on Monday now Wink

Me personally, would like to see Big Sam get the job. He would sort out any egos in that dressing room pretty sharpish, and get the right type of players in the January transfer window to get us out of this hole. (hopefully).

Have to question why anybody like Big Sam/ Moyes/ Hughton would want to come to us right now though. We're a mess.

Had to laugh at this from one of your fan forums.

Looks like our bottom of the table championship clash with you on Saturday has been appropriately labelled as "Clash of the Shite'uns".

That's excellent. On occasion, football fans can be seriously funny.

Have to question why anybody like Big Sam/ Moyes/ Hughton would want to come to us right now though. We're a mess.

Massive transfer/wage budget for the division.   The most patient loyal owners probably in football (Hughes and Jones would have been fired much quicker with 90% of other owners with similar wealth and wage/transfer budgets relative to their league position at the time) Family run/lifelong supported club.   Owners are right up there wealth wise with the richest owners in football in the world.  Impossible for any of those 3 managers (and many others) to get a better job imo to make a name for themselves/reinvent their career.  Central location bang on the m6 so very easy to commute to without having to relocate from vast areas of the midlands/NW.

Stoke are also just outside the play offs in the xg league table this season so they are running bad.  

The bigger the mess to sort out if they pull it off the bigger their ego gets stroked and the most impressive their skills look.   Personally i'd love to see TP back to really sort out the egos in that dressing room.    It needs a TP/big sam/Moyes type character for me.   Unproven young/upcoming managers haven't worked with 3 attempts.

Having all that money didn't stop you getting relegated from Premier League.

Having all that money but finished 16th last season

Having all that money and are now bottom of the Championship.

Quiet lolrron.   Nobody cares what you think.   Your opinion is worthless and results orientated as usual.  Having all that money also kept Stoke in the EPL for a decade and never finished in the bottom 6 until the season they went down.   Silly to balance your argument with those facts though wouldn't it?  Stick to ticket touting mythical rugby union tickets.

With the parachute payments ending and financial fair play rules looking a potential issue, surely it's not as simple as this. If we can't shift some high earning players relatively soon then there's not financial freedom for the new manager.
