Next manager...
« on: March 09, 2019, 07:58:58 PM »
Personally I think this has Big Sam written all over it.

Someone needs to come in who demands respect, and a huge promotion bonus on offer.

Just been told that Big Dave had lost the faith of some of the players in the squad. Was told her had to win today’s game to save his job. Maybe that explains the performance.

I’d suggest very few people if any hated Darren Moore, however the majority were probably well aware he had many limitations.
It is not the taking part, but the winning that counts.

No-one hated Darren Moore, far from it.

I hope its moyes or big Sam. Can you imagine them with this set of players. It'll be worst than pulis and Pardew

Needs to be someone who has the potential to lift the squad to promotion, but will also stay to build toward promotion next season. Someone who has potential to build a squad from scratch. Someone who plays half decent football please.

Back room staff gone already. If there is not someone lined up to start Monday morning this is even more of a terrible decision then it looks.

My money is on Big Sam.

I just think it has Allardyce written all over it.

Massive bonus if he gets promoted. Probably on a short term contract till end of season.

Will come and demand respect straight away.

Does anyone think we need a new manager willing to take chances on some of our promising young academy players?

Claude Puel, club will be aware of him already with the Barns loan.

Carlos Carvalhal did well to a degree at Sheffield Wednesday and Swansea. He is out of work and could be a useful stopgap until the end of the season.

Allardyce is unfairly put into the same bracket as Pardew/Pulis when in reality he is a far superior manager who is much more diverse with his tactics.

I remember seeing him on an old football show and beneath the 'Big Sam' façade he is actually a very intelligent tactician when it comes to football; I think his northern reputation away from the pitch doesn't do him any favours though.

Anyway, I thought he hated us after we let him go many moons ago - so I doubt it will be him.

I'd be happy with Puel or Jokanavic.

I want Jokanovic, give him a shot at the play offs and let him rebuild in the summer regardless of what league we're in. We desperately need to go back to scouting from abroad.

I don't want Allardyce and don't think he'd even want the job, but this group of players would suit him and I reckon he'd win the play offs. Not someone I'd want beyond 6 months though so it's a no from me.

Karanka would just be a Spanish Tony Pulis, the football under him is horrifically boring

Allardyce would be the best option, he knows what he's doing. 6 month contract with a big bonus at the end and I expect we'd win the play offs.

Out the names on here there is only Jokanovic who plays entertaining football.

The rest are cautious coaches, i look forward to our fans reaction to the football they play.
