Who do we want, who could we realistically get?


Recommended Posts

Hannes Wolf, a wild card I guess. But much more realistic than some suggestions on here. Young, relatively inexperienced. But affordable and our size of club would be the perfect place for him to make a name for himself. 

i will say, be careful what you wish for. There isn't much between play off hopeful and religation battle in the championship. I believe this is why SL is cautious when changing manager. 

I usually avoid this type of post like the plauge, but today and Blackburn just so frustrating. I honestly wouldn't mind losing both but it's the way we lost. Both games were there for the taking if it was just kept simple IMO. 

This is a blokes lively hood. And i very much appreciate what he has done for the club, but stability isn't success, it's just the gamble for success that we might not look back on so fondly if all goes tlts

When was the last time we had a manager who other clubs were envious of? 

Need to sign someone who has experience of getting promoted to the prem. 

Pulis! If the definition of envious is a club wanting our manager at a specific time, I think he was the last one to be "poached"!!

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. 

 

Adkins is a good shout to be fair, as you said he has done a good job everywhere he has been. Probably a more realistic option aswell.

You can honestly see SL acting if we lose at Forest on Wednesday?

 

Yes, I could see it.  Not saying definitely.  But he doesn’t like being made to look silly, and always gets his action in first.

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?

But Mick McCarthy and Chris Hughton probably each have about 10 years left in their management careers - Sir Alex and Sir Bobby were managers into their 70s and Roy Hodgson and Neil Warnock are still going in their 70s ... and no, I wouldn’t want Pauli’s back ...

I agree. Seems strange to write someone off based on age. Also, managers only last a few years anyway. I couldn’t care less if a manager is very close to the end of their career if they can offer us something. Mick McCarthy or Chris Hughton would be very good appointments and we would be lucky to have either.

I think we can do better than Atkins.....granted a solid manager....but 2020 stadium training squad resources and stable ownership can be a big draw to higher level managers desperate to get back into work.

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!

I'd have a bit of your di canio's passion right now, what's he up too?

True. As I've said i think we should do whatever it takes to get Hughton here.

Hughton. Measured, calm , not up his own arse in any way that I have seen.. I'd take Hughton tomorrow over LJ.

That said, i know there are other good candidates

If they sacked him before the end of the season they'd put Macca in charge for the remaining games, and if he did ok might give him the job next season, ie a bit like when Millen was appointed. Can't see any 'big name' coming here and having to report to Ashton, and SL won't want anyone who's going to be difficult and potentially upset the applecart.

I have no idea idea what he's upto since he upset everyone at Sunderland I think he went back to Italy but if he took over City evertyhing from top to bottom would change and it would certainly be interesting times! He had a win rate of 56.8 % here but I'm not sure any chairman would take a chance on him now plus he was expensive reportedly on £15k a week in league 2

We are looking for promotion to the prem.....Hughton and Neil are reasonable shouts but Robin's was sacked by Scunthorpe only 2 years back and Lowe is a ridiculous suggestion.

Robins left Scunthorpe four years ago ...

Jokanović-

Prmotoed with Watford in 2015 and Fulham in 2018.

Left Maccabi Tel Aviv to join Fulham so obviously has the ambition to do well in England. If SL is just as ambitious, he would be able to persuade his to step away from his Qatari club and give him even more time than he needed for Watford or Fulham to build a promotion winning side.

How everyone can moan about the quality of football and they say they want Houghton is ridiculous. Be a bit more ambitious.

I don't trust the club to recruit well to be honest.

Clearly Chris Hughton who would though be looking for a better club than us

Houghton is waiting for a Premier League job and has turned down other Championship sides.

I disagree. I think Hughton would fancy our squad and set-up

Robins or Adkins realistically. Hughton a bit far fetched possibly but would be a big statement of intent. Wouldn’t be disappointed with Ainsworth.

Hughton is the obvious answer,,, and is politically bright enough to work under the lansdown ashton regime.

Heard from a reliable person on Tuesday last week, that Hughton said he’d definitely be interested in the City job if it came up. 
This is from a non-city fan who knows the family. 
 

I’m not saying there’s anything in it, just that for those people who say Hughton wouldn’t come here, I think you’re wrong, he would. 
 

As for the wider LJ situ - I think time is up.  Wouldn’t be surprised to see something develop soon.

This is good news, as I find it annoying when people say we could not attract better prospects. We have a lot to offer these days and a dam good platform to go further with the right person. Hughton I would suggest is the right type of manner and experience we need and he has done it before. Class guy too. 

But looks like Fulham want him to replace Parker 

 

Good video if you want to see him talk about career

Think you need to listen to the ipswich fans on that one him and conner wore them down.

Indeed. I worked with an Ipswich fan- he was quite happy McCarthy had gone for the reasons you state. Until the untimely lockdown he was even quite enjoying League One, Lambert, some games won, younger players- a bit more hope- maybe come back stronger.

I'd be interested to see how McCarthy would do here, and I think LJ has run his race here but it may not be a terribly good watch...though I'd be open minded.

McCarthy had a solid body of work there but it is worth noting too that in summer 2018, something McCarthy fans never mention, is that McGoldrick left, Garner left, Waghorn left- as well as Webster and loanee in the form of Celina.

Would even he have kept them up with so many goals plus a reasonable number of assists out of the side? Unsure Webster was an integral player there.

I also question whether Webster would have flourished here in the same way under McCarthy- how cheaply we got him for from Ipswich makes me wonder!

Sl would be too intrested in getting compensation, to sack lj.

If any truth in the rumour, hes talking to burnley, fair few quid at stake there.

If Mark robins could influence the team, as a manager like he did as a player, id take him tomorrow.

Also that german fella that got huddersfield up.

He must have some good ideals.
