  1. He's clearly a coach not a manager
  2. Open the gate and over the gate. It's a warm up classic. No intensity needed.
  3. Lower league munter. From New port
  4. That was slightly skewed in that it focused on the last half season when he clearly lost his way. Virtually all managers do, even the likes of Mourinho and Guardiola. No manager is perfect. It's worth remembering that when he took over they were near the bottom of the Championship and he left after finishing his 2nd season in the Premiership.. That's clear progress and improvement.
  5. It seems to me that the key attribute needed would be the ability to manage upwards effectively. To ensure that others in the organisation just get on with their jobs quietly and that he is in charge of the major decisions. KITR is right that we aren't going to get a world class manager but someone with enough nous to deal with our particular situation is a must. LJ clearly lacked the experience, Cotts was too abrasive and was undermined. The lesson to be learned from the Coppell debacle is not to chase someone too hard. They need to want to be here. If they are still afraid of a 'big
  6. No, it's a damning comment on the intelligence of at least 1 more than 50% of the population..
  7. Dean Saunders, Tiny Penis, Hollowhead, Colin, Appleton, Coleman, Marco Silva (major league bluffer).
  8. Budget isn't the problem. Spending it wisely is. We have ended up with an imbalanced and oversized squad. We used more players in the first 2 games back than Wolves have used in the Premier League all season. We just need someone with a clear approach who will take what we've got and work with it, getting rid of what he doesn't need and adding a couple of players (defensive midfielder). Last thing we need to do is chuck money around at the moment. The smart managers look at the bigger picture. They'll see the investment in the Ground and training facilities, they'll see the time
  9. Excellent point. As timely as Eliasson and Palmer's injuries..
  10. He looked poor during the week at full back but better today at centre half from what I saw. He is defintely a centre half. Just needs to fill out. Will step into Nathan Ake's shoes next season for sure. Ake will stay in the Prem
  11. No money is flooding into this marker. In all likeliness Ryan had a £10 bet on himself so that his odds came tumbling down..
  12. It is. They have had enough time to work out their failures and ensure the new appointment is right. There must have been discussions about the next man over the last 3 months in Guernsey... My main concern is are they self-aware enough to pick someone who will be able to deal with them effectively...
  13. Great post. I'm thinking along similar lines. Just wrote a ridiculously long post comparing the football and rugby sides on another thread. We need someone able to manage upwards like Pat Lam does for the rugby team...
