Re: Next Manager poll-

How do you become a "football people" ? By training, gaining the knowledge, being experienced in positions linked to on field football decisions Scouting, recruitment, analysis etc. Kinnear is none of those things. His background is marketing, corporate stuff, at Arsenal, West Ham and us....

Re: Next Manager poll-

Maybe maybe not, but he's probably seen more live football than you or I probably interacted with more players, probably talked to more people that know about football.... Selecting a manager is a lottery where 40% is an excellent record. I've no clue if he'll hire our new manager or not, I've no c...

Good player but a bit of an enigma

Re: Next Manager poll-

It's a bloody awful list let's be honest :lol: Put together by people with a bog standard understanding and knowledge of Football. It's weird though 49ers told Radz to appoint the best manager he could. Bielsa The 49ers have these meh people on there list Strange Of the list I like Mckenna, Knutsen,...

Re: Next Manager poll-

I can't believe the lovefest for Rodgers. He took a Leicester side down and that side should have been mid table comfortably. It was pure and utter failure so why would we want to hire him? He did poorly at Watford and Reading. Did well at Swansea. Did okay at Liverpool but they bottled it when the...

Kinnear knows more about the business absolutely

Picking managers?
Tactics?
Playing philosophy?

No guarantee on that.

He shouldn't be anywhere near this decision.

But he is.

Re: Next Manager poll-

It's interesting people only see the 2 Championship titles. They had a 1st season where it was really poor. They also had Buendia and Pukki playing out of there skin both seasons. Defensively it's not great His Championship record works out at 51 goals conceded per season on average. For comparison ...

Re: Next Manager poll-

From the Norwicy forum on Farke Bad fit. It would take him a while to get going there and they wouldn't appreciate how he coaches a team to play off the ball when they get exposed, they like a team that gets stuck in and plays with intensity. The CR crowd grumbled when teams just ran through us unch...

Re: Next Manager poll

Afraid I also voted for Rodgers Cjay. Just my way of trying to put a message out there in the universe. Right now, if we could get him, I think he would be our best bet to totally reset the squad. If he is indeed unrealistic, my next option is Corboran. Not sure what to make of Falke. Seems a bit o...

Kieran McKenna would be a much more exciting appointment if we want domestic.

Done an exceptional job at Ipswich.

But Angus won't have heard of him so

Re: Next Manager poll-

I'm hoping we're going to see a lotof ambition from the new board. And that means that several unrealistic coaches will now be realistic. Like I said further up, Wilkinson and Bielsa both dropped to lower tiers than their earned reputations. I also think back to teams like Blackburn when they made ...

For what it's worth Phil has again said that the indications are Brenden Rodgers isn't interested in a Championship job.

Re: Next Manager poll-

Does the Farke odds dropping today mean that Webber is coming in as DOF? Would be a logical link. Webber been part of discussion for the past couple of weeks. Possible that the new owners have been talking to him behind the scenes Doesn't sound like it from the Phil Hay article. Seems a DOF isn't i...
