It is really no surprise that Terry Butcher has become a sought after managerial name after the amazing transformation he has given Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Thistle currently occupy lofty second place in the scottish premier league when by their own admission they would have been favourites for relegation at the start of the season.
Barnsley sacked their previous managerial incumbent Keith Hill after their 3-1 home defeat to Blackburn Rovers on December 29.
Terry Butcher is most famous for playing in a world cup qualifier for England whilst bandaged up around his head and by the end of the game his shirt was covered in blood which wouldn't be allowed these days. Butcher exemplifies British Bulldog spirit!
This season Caledonian Thistle have defeated both Celtic and Rangers in the league cup this season and are eyeing their first ever league cup final as well as an unprecedented place in Europe next season.
Butcher has achieved this with a shoestring budget and it's no surprise he is being linked with higher profile vacancies. Will he want to stay and finish the job at Thistle? Of course that is what the Scottish club will be hoping but realistically they are going to lose their manager at some point in the near future to a bigger club.
Will Barnsley be that club?
