Isn't he on the point of being sacked by Orient :o

Mind you he would probably bring our ex player Kevin Nugent with him. Still not exactly inspiring is it.

The same Talksport presenter who said that Tim Sherwood was a done deal to Palace.

Not a big name, but has a very decent record, success at most of the clubs he's been at and has worked his way up. Will also bring Kevin Nugent back :lol: (he's Slade's assistant).

Not doing so well this season and isn't far off the sack himself.

IF he's taken on let's give him a chance.

Should go all out for Pulis IMHO.

Don't fall asleep but here is the career of Russell Slade

Background
Slade started out as a PE teacher at Frank Wheldon School after studying Sport at University[6]. Having had an extended career at reserve team level, Slade entered professional sports coaching with Notts County in 1993. He briefly took charge of the club as caretaker manager during the 1994–95 season. Slade then had spells in charge of non-league sides Armitage and Leicester United before joining the coaching staff of Sheffield United in 1997. He had two spells as caretaker manager of The Blades in 1998 and 1999 before the appointment of Neil Warnock. In 2001 he took over the managerial post at Conference National side Scarborough before later moving to Grimsby Town in 2004 and Yeovil Town in 2006. He was appointed manager of Brighton & Hove Albion in 2009 but the stay was brief and he was dismissed in November 2009. At Leyton Orient he has had led the club to two 7th place finishes, an FA Cup fifth round replay against Arsenal and took the O's to the Play-Off Final in 2013-14 - a feat which saw win the LMA League 1 Manager of the Year award.

Notts County
Slade was assistant manager to Mick Walker at Notts County, and took over as caretaker manager when Walker was sacked in September 1994. When County appointed Howard Kendall as manager in January 1995, Slade stayed on as his assistant.

Sheffield United
Slade was then appointed manager of Midland Alliance side Armitage, then moving on to Southern Football League side Leicester United before having two separate spells as caretaker manager at Sheffield United.

Scarborough
Slade's first permanent managerial post was at Football Conference side Scarborough. When he arrived in November 2001 the club were adrift at the bottom of the Conference and looking doomed. His first match in charge resulted in a home win over Farnborough Town but the next three games yielded just one point. However a remarkable run of 39 points from the final 19 games of the season meant Scarborough finished 12th. He was hailed as a hero by the fans and his stock rose when taking the team to 4th position by Christmas in the 2002–03 season. In January 2003, two days after the club went into administration, Slade tendered his resignation. The fans presented a tearful Slade with a petition at the next game and on the Monday morning he changed his mind.

The following season saw mixed league performances, but a tremendous FA Cup run which saw victories over Hinckley United, Doncaster Rovers, Port Vale, and finally Southend United following a replay, meant a glamorous home tie in front of Premier League Chelsea. Despite losing 1–0 Slade's side had put up a tremendous battle.

Grimsby Town
At the end of the 2003–04 season Grimsby Town decided not to renew the contract of manager Nicky Law following relegation into League Two. Slade was appointed as their new manager.[7] A midtable finish ensued in the 2004–05 season but despite some disgruntled fans calling for his head, Grimsby spent most of the 2005–06 season in an automatic promotion spot in League Two, also managing to topple both Derby County and Tottenham Hotspur in the Football League Cup. Town eventually finished the season in 4th place and had to settle for the playoffs, following a late Northampton Town equalizer meant that Leyton Orient would finish the season in the final automatic promotion places. Despite guiding his team to a semi-final victory over local rivals Lincoln City, Slade was unable to secure promotion, Grimsby losing 1–0 in the final against Cheltenham Town in the Millennium Stadium.

Yeovil Town
Slade's success with Grimsby had attracted League One side Yeovil Town, and Slade was appointed as the Somerset club's new manager.[8] Slade led Yeovil to a surprise 5th place finish play-off finish in the league, where they defeated favourites Nottingham Forest to reach the play-off final. However, Yeovil lost the final against Blackpool 2–0.[9] Slade's successful first season at Yeovil saw him win the League One manager of the year award, and he was targeted by League One rivals Carlisle United and Millwall for their managerial positions but this interest was rejected by Yeovil chairman John Fry.[10]

Slade left his post at Yeovil on 16 February 2009, despite having won four consecutive matches immediately prior to this.[11] Slade had become frustrated with the club's lack of ambition, although the club chairman John Fry had previously stated that changes would be needed due to the current economic climate.[12]

Brighton & Hove Albion
On 6 March 2009, Slade was appointed manager of struggling Brighton & Hove Albion until the end of the season,[13] and succeeded in ensuring they avoided relegation from League One. Following that remarkable achievement, on 4 May 2009, Slade signed a further two-year contract at Brighton.[14]

Leyton Orient
Slade was appointed manager of Leyton Orient on 5 April 2010, six matches before the end of their season and with The club was in danger of being relegated from League One, but Slade managed to win the club 10 points from their last six matches, enough for Orient to avoid relegation by a single point. Slade was rewarded with a new two-year contract on 14 May[15] and the following season he guided Orient to seventh place, one point outside the play-off places, as well as a fifth round replay at Arsenal in the FA Cup. During the season, Orient chairman Barry Hearn rejected an approach from Barnsley for Slade.

Slade was unable to build on previous season's promise during the 2011–12 season and the club finished in 20th, but the next season he was able to guide Orient to another 7th-place finish.

On 7 June 2013, Leyton Orient announced that Slade, his assistant Kevin Nugent and chief scout Kevin Dearden had signed contract extensions to keep them at the club for a further three years, until the end of the 2015–16 season.[16]

The 2013-14 season was Slade's most successful as he led the club to the Play-Off Final where they were runners up after a penalty shoot out. It was a record-breaking season though as Orient recorded their best ever start to a season and highest ever points tally. Slade twice won the Manager of the Month award and was named as the League 1 Manager of the Year.
