Oh, Danny boy! 

BREAKING NEWS: Boxing Day 1.31pm
Yes. IT IS WILSON!
 
As reported on this website on Monday night, Danny Wilson is the new Swindon Town manager.
 
The football club made an official announcement today ahead of this afternoon's clash with Leyton Orient.
 
Wilson, who left his position as Hartlepool boss on 15 December, will be unveiled at an STFC press conference on Sunday at 11am.

Difficult week:

Former Hartlepool manager Danny Wilson may have left the Swindon Town board with a major headache SwindonWeb understands, as chairman Andrew Fitton announced today he is 're-considering some of the available' candidates for the Town job.
 
In an official statement, the club admitted the Board had experienced a 'frustrating week trying to finalise an appointment' and if necessary would '.... take steps to re-start the process'.
 
It had been expected that a new manager would be in place in time for tomorrow's home clash with Yeovil, with either Richard Money or Dave Hockaday the favourites to become boss.

Ticks the boxes:

But SwindonWeb understands that a mixture of compensation clauses and a late application from a new candidate has forced the Board to weigh up their options - and consider a fresh face in their search.
 
Former Premiership boss Danny Wilson is now apparently one of the major names in the frame, after being sacked by Hartlepool on the 15th.
 
"We remain determined to find the right person for the post..... and no one will thank the Board if we get this appointment wrong," Fitton says.
 
Wilson's managerial high points:
 
1997: Promoted to Premiership with Barnsley
1999: Leads Sheffield Wednesday to 12th in Premiership
2000-2004: achieves win ratio of 47.2% at Bristol City
2005: Rescues MK Dons from relegation
2008: Manages Hartlepool to second in League Two
