Was very close to the job when we eventually appointed Mcinnes

I would have liked him as manager then, but that was then, and now is now. We need to go for someone with more top level experience.

Not seeing him being discussed much - is he the elephant in the room?

Got Coventry playing some of the best football in L1 last season on a limited budget and in unbelievably difficult circumstances I.e. not being able to play at their home ground. 

L1 manager of the season and league winner.

Already getting the best out of one of our squad members, in a key position. 

Ex-player, and a popular one at that. Enjoyed his time at Ashton Gate.

Has played top-flight football for one of the biggest clubs in the world. 

Surname is Robins (!) 

And perhaps most significantly has a very good relationship with Steve Lansdown and has been a confidant of the board in the past.

Also has Championship level experience and has done ok given he has never worked with a significant budget like he'd have here.

Has to be in the conversation?

Think that if approached he would consider the position. Cant be happy with not playing at their own stadium may help

He's one I want. Played great football at Coventry and with such a young team.

People talk about levels of football. Which could be important. But if a manager does brilliantly in league one, I don't see why they can't do well in championship. 

The opposition level is harder but his own players will be better than what he had at Coventry.

Cotts. Brilliant in L1 but would've relegated us thst first season. It is a different level and I feel some managers only succeed in lower leagues.

Done a good / great job at Coventry.

But not sure his credentials are any better than many others mentioned in the bracket below Hughton, McCarthy, Jokanović etc.

Not saying he should be struck off the list, but I don’t see him as the best candidate either.

Lee was chosen over Robins when he was appointed so not a good sign.

He wasn't really, was he?

McInnes was chosen over Robins. Johnson was chosen over everyone. He was lined up.

He probably had the biggest budget out of any manager didn't he?

Still he did do an exceptional job. No one could really have done any better.

But i don't know if Coventry should have been where they ended up. It seems Robins did better than anyone could have imagined.

After failing three times in the championship it will be interesting to see how he fares with Coventry next season..

For my money there are better suited league one managers out there..

eg Ainsworth, Clough,
