Has to one of either Jokanovic or Wagner - the short term options are uninspiring to say the least

Feel it's already done with Jokanovic, didn't Luke Dowling work with him at Watford? He might have even had a say in his recruitment.

Most of the names being trotted out are just plain depressing.

Provided it isn't one of the true dinosaurs or one of their clones like Rowett I probably don't care all that much.

Past managers and on the righ hand side, what they achieved.

Let's sack a manager who's 4th and employ one who's mid table and on a worse run than us.

No you're right, because all managers are working with the exact same financial resource and quality of player. Silly me for considering each job on its own merits, as well as broader factors such as playing style.

Not sure Allardyce, Hughes or Moyes would consider a Championship position even though they are going to struggle to get anything better. We have not seemed interested in the likes of Appleton and McInnes in the past so Jokanovic and Wagner seem the most likely to me.

I'd expect appointment on Monday, if not then Jenkins needs to be shown the door.

Would be pleased with Jokanovic or McInnes for different reasons.

Whoever we appoint, I really hope we commit to a long-term (or at least medium-term) project, with a focus on attacking football and bringing through young talent.  Chasing temporary success and survival short-term by throwing money at obvious aging players my nan could have given a scouting report on was what got us in this mess in the first place IMO.

I would hope that we will announce the next appointment on Monday. Anything else is appalling management by the board.

I hope and pray that it’s not Allardyce. This would be an absolute disaster in my view and would make a mockery of any ambition to rebuild the club in readiness for the long term future. Get the ex Fulham guy in.

Not prayer that this is a long term project we will make the same short term appointments based on the latest whim or perceived crisis. We will either get lucky or more likely slowly sink into deserved obscurity.

Before anyone thinks that I am joking, I can assure you that I am not,but I would not be surprised if we have not been in touch with Claudio Ranieri.
For the Chinese who have little knowledge of football his CV would look like gold dust !

Why on earth would he leave Roma; who he's just signed up with; to come to us?

If our ownership genuinely tried that i'd suggest they check in to the nearest asylum

Its vital the new manager;
a) plays attacking entertaining football, but also knows the strenghts/weaknesses of the  various players.

b) the players can relate to him and prepared to play for him.

I think alot of the better managers will be wary about our sacking record. i.e. we seem to have a fairly short term vision.
At this stage I'm more thinking about who i do NOT want. Top of that list Hughes, Moyes, Allerdyce. Too old school. We need somone with a more modern progressive vision.

Listening to some Everton supporters, Marco Silva may be looking for a job soon, but that would probably mean waiting for him.

Ralf Rangnick is worth a looking at again he is doing a good job at RB Leipzig.
If not him then a young manager with a bit more experience.

How many of them have watched us play even once this season do you reckon?

Exactly, most of them just see a team in 4th place and think "That's decent, he seems a nice bloke. They're mad". They don't know the whole picture, how poor our footballs been recently and the relative strength of our squad within the division. We should be top 2, and the performances have been shocking recently. We would have missed play offs with Darren Moore in charge, I have little doubt about that

I'd bite your arm off to get Rangnick, but somehow I doubt he'd swap challenging for a place in the Champions League with trying to make the Championship Play Offs.

Interesting though that his last team trainer at Leipzig is now manager at Southampton.

I always look forward to your posts. They’re thought through, rarely knee-jerked based, and interesting to read. I’m hoping you’re a tad emotional now, and will have clearer thoughts come breakfast time. Hopefully obscurity isn’t still on the menu. Chin up! Interesting times ahead.  :D
