If we're not going to appoint a big name I would not like some Alex McLeish/Steve Bruce hybrid bore who gets us relegated. If we're going to get relegated lets do it in style and appoint some crackpot Stale Solbakken-esque, enigmatic manager who nobody actually knows anything about. Perhaps who entertains us all with a foray into the unknown, absolutely unfathomable teamsheets and/or aesthetically pleasing football. Less defenders the better next season in my opinion.
That or I would like a well known, solid Premier League standard manager to help us push on and achieve another top half finish. I feel the candidates just simply are not there at the moment though.
Hughton, boring but would keep us up. Ranieri or Ray Wilkins, god knows. Lets just appoint the Zambia manager Hervé Renard, won the ACoN as complete underdogs. I've tried reloading saves and still can't do that on Football Manager - he must have something about him.
