Who do we want, who could we realistically get?

Apologies, didn’t have time to read 159 posts before posting my suggestions - I want a proven, successful guy at this level - always have - you don’t, that’s fine - I’ve long held the view that some City fans are afraid of real success, they instantly shy away from managerial suggestions regarding people who have the right experience, skills and knowledge to be hugely successful with our club. The fact you used words such as ‘depressing’ and ‘slit your wrists’ when considering Warnock, Hughton or McCarthy suggests you are one such supporter...their CVs at this level are just awesome - all of them   👍🍷

Yes, but they are, inevitably, approaching the end of their careers, and I’m afraid that I think achieving success in the modern game needs someone who is going to adopt modern methods and thinking.  No disrespect to any of the names mentioned (I actually have a lot time even for Warnock), but none seem to be forward-looking appointments, which is what I find so depressing.  Would anyone want Pauli’s back?

I reckon it will happen after we lose to Forest this week.

That's a big shout Fevs!

It's been a while since we saw Lansdown's ruthless side. That would be big time ruthless given that Johnson would play his Covid card.

I do think LJs position is now untenable. A fully fit squad and he can’t field a midfield and plays Benik on the left wing, having changed 7 from last week. It feels desperate. It is desperate. I’d love him to turn it around but don’t see it happening. 
 

When he goes, I don’t want a Warnock, a Bruce - I want someone progressive, who develops clubs. The cupboard does seem bare on that. I do however like the Rosenior shout as a left field one (and our Swindon friends Benitez suggestion add a stoned suggestion). Jokanovic to me remains the standout, but this is crucial for our club - and I don’t see an obvious candidate which in turn suggests why LJ is still in a job..

Rafael Benitez is the mananger who could take you forward and inject some excitement and sell even more season tickets  and didn't mind dropping down down to the championship with Newcastle. I don't know how you prise him away from China but that's upto your billionaire chairman to show his ambition!

Glue sniffing is bad mate. Don’t do it

Relax people, just seen on Twitter from a reliable source. By reliable I mean a complete ******** who has probably never been to a game, lives in his mums basement and drinks 'dark fruits'.

Tongue in cheek maybe but you get a decent name is what you need 

What we need is a manager  confident in his ability and clear in mind and tactics. A clear playing philosophy . A manager who backs his players in public 100% but not scared to be brutally honest to their faces. Top of my list would be paul cook who’s had great success with chesterfield , Pompey and wigan . You don’t need a big name , you need the right man .

As most managers have ups and downs, meaning they get fired, often many names are dismissed simply because in their last job they got the sack. Look at Bruce, going great at Newcastle. So I think you have to look at a span of years. It is quite clear that the approach to promotion is different. It is also normally very fast , within 2 years if it clicks. No one has got a club in the premier by being in the job for four years in the last ten years. We should look at our own recent experience and how SC did it. There was a clear plan, and players signed for that plan. The last 2 years no one has a clue what the plan is and players are randomly signed. That has to change. So I feel we are a great club for someone. Stadium and training ground are a huge draw, plus we have overall a pretty decent squad . So it needs selective and key additions not total change. The club is well funded for a non parachute club, and is certainly able to support a solid top 6 result. There is much to do with the scouting though so it will all be solved in a month or so, as we need better recruitment for whoever comes in. SL needs to have the desire though, he has the cosy club right now and that is "nice"

Just wish we’d go big like we do for the rugby. Quique Sanches Flores, Klinsmann, McCarthy, Van Bommel, Hughton all available .

Difference with the rugby where they go sign the best players in the world who earn £1m a year if we signed the best players in the world they would want that a week (not that we could actually sign the. At this level!)

He’d be an exciting appointment and aligned with the Bears strategy so can be ruled out.

Can we stop comparing ourselves to the rugby, premiership rugby is on a similar level money wise to league one. Any comparison, especially when regarding head coach/manager, is ridiculous

Warburton or Robins for me.

Though if SL is still after a puppet and someone who won’t cause him too much agro then I’d be happy to see Liam Rosenior given a chance. Convinced he’s going to be very good manager.

 

Agree on the Warburtons or Robin's - would be happy with either.

Cook would be good. 

Hughton has a lot of good points. His tactics. Well sometimes aren't so desirable. Certainly the case with Warnock. It's also worth noting how the Championship has evolved even last few years with foreign influence, would Hughton's 4-4-2 still be as successful I wonder?

Chris Hughton has always been my number 1 choice. Would he come here and be happy to work under the current regime though is the million dollar question..

I don’t see why not. We are no different to how Brighton were when he took over there

I do like Liam Rosenior...maybe a bit young, but with a DoF working above him?

But this is what will happen: Johnson until the end of the season. Then fired. Then McCalister appointed. Relagation. McCalister fired. League 1 mediocrity for 3 years. Then promotion.

I don't think SL wants us in the premier league.

Rosenior 🤣

If it’s SLs choice, and it will be, the final two will be Mark Robins and Steve McLaren. Robins will get it. 

Frankly, I’ll take anything at the moment. Neither of those inspire me though, both safe and non- threatening. 

 

We need ‘old school’ to sort this mess out and get us back on an even-keel. Massive disappointment that Warnock has already gone. I’d have taken him in a shot  until the end of the season. He, like those more enlightened supporters, observed a couple of season’s back that LJ talks a good game but doesn’t deliver on the pitch.

True. Good crowds, new stadium, a new training ground on the way aswell. We are identical to Brighton in many ways. His financial demands may be a stumbling block but its time for SL to push the boat out for a manager for once.

I’d go for Adkins. Done a good job everywhere he’s been and exudes confidence. I think he’d be a breath of fresh air, much like cotterill was. But has a proven track record at this level and plenty of promotions under his belt. He’d take the pressure off the players rather than throwing them under the bus and saying he gave them all the tools but they fail to execute etc.

id be satisfied with robbins.
