I don't see the ex Derbyshire caretaker twosome as the way forward. I have always wanted to see a role for a Nixon or a Maddy in the coaching set up. Whether they would be interested who knows but Leicestershire must be in both of their hearts.
NB - for what's it's worth I never felt Robson should have gone.
I saw Nixon was coaching in the CPL, so I guess he would be interested in this kind of job.

Nixon is certainly keen to coach in England. He applied for the Kent job a few years back, but was blackballed by t'committee as "too much of a maverick" (direct quote from a committee member).

But may be a motivational maverick is exactly what Leics need,and Nixon fits both those bills. And although he would be a risk, what have they got to lose? Being a complete nutter, his insanity might just fire them up to start punching above their meagre weight?

The other great maverick motivator desperate for a job in English county cricket is Chris Adams. But unfortunately there are no two men in the domestic game who loathe each other more than Wasim Khan and Grizzly (from their playing time together at Sussex) so that ain't going to happen...

Ateeq Javid has joined from Warwickshire. Negotiating re Pillans.

Too many players under contract for next season? Surely expensive to pay off Pettini and Horton?

Is Cosgrove staying? He signed an extended contract but it is claimed that Carberry is next season's captain.

Is McKay leaving? He is out of contract at the end of this season.

I think Nixon would be a great appointment. I very much enjoy his columns in the Cricket Paper, in which he reveals a very good understanding of people and what is needed to make a successful team. And he has results - Jamaica Tallawahs won the CPL last year and I believe are going well again this year.

Interesting. Unfortunately I think Adams' reputation, at least on the county scene, took a heavy blow after events at Surrey, where a hedonistic culture among some players seemed to get out of control and ended in tragedy.

What can we expect from Ateeq Javid ? For someone of his age he doesn't seem to have played a lot of first X1 cricket ?

Spinner Parkinson (20) had ended with figures of 8-148 from 45 overs - the best for the Foxes since former England paceman Devon Malcolm's 8-63 versus Surrey at Grace Road in 2001.

Sadly followed by yet another second innings collapse, 10-4 at one point.
On this form Carberry surely cannot be recruited ? Another big defeat on the way I'm afraid. Time for 'Nicko' !!

In Paul Nixon's column in this week's Cricket Paper he stated that he wants the Leicestershire job.

As widely anticipated, Carbs joins Leicestershire on a 2-year deal.

Clint McKay won't be returning as a player next year.

What is going to happen to Horton and Pettini? They have another year on their contract.

Will we get another overseas fast bowler?

Another sad season comes to an end , rock bottom in the Championship , below average in the 50 over game and just a bit better in the T20.
If a big clear out is possible then we should get on with it and then bring in 'Nicko' , after all what is there to lose, we can hardly get worse !

Any 'inside track ' on the new coach after Friday's interviews ? Nicko and Sadler both interviewed according to Radio Local, not sure about others

Good luck to Nicko. Leics need big characters and he's one of them.

But they need them on the pitch, too. Not sure the likes of Pettini, Horton and now Carberry are 'big characters' in the way that signings such as Lock and Illingworth were for Leics back in the day....

Interesting that Leics is now run by the ex-Kent pair of Nixon and Carberry, although I don't recall them ever playing together in the same XI.

Pettini was a big enough character to have captained Essex for 3-4 years and only lost that job because of his form with the bat.

Carberry strikes me from his England time as more of a solitary figure than one of the lads. Whilst he can be understated he was actually one of the ones who spoke out about how KP had been unfairly treated.

Don't know so much about Horton's personality. Ashley Giles let him go at Lancs to make room for Hameed.

I didn't mean to diss Pettini, Horton or Carberry.

All I meant was that they are not the kind of 'big' characters who will transform the culture of the club and recast it in their own image in the way that first Tony Lock and then Ray Illingworth did in their time at Grace Road in the 60s and 70s...

Pettini wasn't a big character in the sense of his predecessor Ronnie Irani but he demonstrated sufficient leadership to be appointed captain of a county aged 23. I know you're not dissing him but I think you maybe underestimating him a little.
