It’s going to be Robins just for the marketing opportunity. We’ll be behind closed doors again next season but we can watch on Robins TV. 

Robins, Robins. 

has to be

nor since Arsene at Arsenal has there been a more obvious appointment. Nomative Determanism etc

So nearly half of respondants who didnt like LJ's style of football want Chris Hughton. That makes no sense whatsoever unless you want promotion at any cost including sacraficing attacking football for a few more years.

Lets have a few more years of us being set up not to lose. Can't wait.

What exactly was LJ's style, if he had really set up not to lose, at least we would have had a style/system that we could get behind. My problem with Johnson was, that after 4 years 100 or so players almost a dozen transfer windows , he didn't have a formation or system or style of play, he definitely have a "best XI".

We could do with someone , probably experienced, that has an idea how he wants to play, but has a bit of flexibility to fit our players to his system, whoever that may be. Hughton happens to have previous for getting out of the Championship, there are a lot of things on his CV that suggest he could be a good fit.

My pal from Norrrwicch says Hughton played the most boringly defensive football he has ever seen at Carrow Road.

Others say his team at Brighton banged the goals in for fun...

So that would be Prem v Champs circumstances I assume. 

Summary = hire, promote, fire 

And there you have it.

Pin this for future reference.

Don't quite get the poor football argument with Hughton.

This was his last promotion

2 Brighton & Hove Albion (P) 46 28 9 9 74 40 +34 93

Doesn't look very negative.

Happy to have my opinion altered mind.

From what I remember of Brighton is they played a very organised pressing style just past the halfway line. It caused teams to lose possession and they were very efficient countering. That was how I remembered them from the game at AG. It was pretty in the championship but went very defensive in the premier league. Maybe it is a case of lesson learned for him if he got another side promoted. That said, it is why he is my second choice behind Jokanovic of popular names.

Its understandable promoted teams go more defensive on entering the premiership. His remit would have been keep them up not play pretty football, if you try and go toe to toe with some of this bigger teams you end up getting walloped.

From what I've seen of his teams in the championship they have always played nice stuff and scored lots of goals. 

Honestly I can't see any manager playing more negatively than johnson did at the end.

The more I think about it the more I’m leaning towards Mick McCarthy. Has promotion experience, worked miracles at Ipswich on a shoestring budget, builds a solid hard to beat team without being boring, straight talker. 
Might ruffle a few feathers too

Looking through the list of options has some very weird choices, and some I'd pick in a heartbeat.

I'd have Steven Gerrard purely for the Liverpool connections. I'd also have Frank de Boer, although the chances of him leaving Atlanta United for us is slim and none, considering they're the closest America has to a huge team. Hughton would be amazing, if he'd join us.

If history is anything to go by, though, it's that Lansdown will want someone who is cheap, and who completely buys into his philosophy of sustainability through youth. I don't know if any of those names are right for him, so I'm inclined to believe that Flynn is going to end up as our next coach.

Unless they change the CEO/Head Coach model, I can’t see any of the ‘old school’ managers such as McCarthy and Hughton being appointed.  Can you imagine anyone like them, or Warnock or Pulis, surrendering control of transfer dealings to Mark Ashton?

The likes of Flynn or Rowe are far more credible candidates, though Flynn would be a real wild card given that he has yet to win anything.  Continental managers might buy into the model, but Steve Lansdown will remember how things ended with Cotterill and I can‘t see him wanting that kind of relationship again.

Depends how much control Ashton actually has. If it’s manager identifies player x, MA goes and negotiates purchase, then I can’t see too much of an issue. 
It does seem like there is an element of MA telling LJ that Brownhill had to be sold for example

Left field and I may get slaughtered but I wouldn't mind Sven-Goran Eriksson... Probably can't afford him though.

Said similar earlier.  Let’s worry about football style in the Prem, when (if) we get there.

Couldn't agree less.

After watching Johnson's sides for the last couple of years all I want is to see exciting football.

And we wouldn't be worrying about style in the Premier, we'd be parking the bus.

How come? Out of interest, do you know when an English manager last won the premier league?

A manager from another country will sign more and more foreign players

But you’ll get this (exciting football) with Hughton based on his previous set up / approach in the Championship.
