Where else but Liverpool to start this morning, after Rafa finally said goodbye to Anfield and walked away with a wedge of notes in his back pocket - probably to Inter Milan.
According to The Times, 'King Kenny' Dalglish will lead the search for his successor - the man tasked with trying to convince Stevie Gee and Fernando Tee to stay and saving the Reds from a fate like Leeds.
Roy Hodgson is an early favourite. The Fulham boss already had a fine reputation, but in leading his team to the Europa Cup final his stock rose to new heights.
Martin O'Neill is another one who's name is being bandied around. According to reports, he's highly rated at Anfield and well up there on the list of potential candidates.
As an outside bet, how about Jurgen Klinsmann, who is no stranger to being linked to the Liverpool hotseat.
