Ok It sounds like I may be on my own here but why not John Terry?

He is one of the finest centre backs this country has ever produced, played and no doubt learnt from some of the finest managers in the world. Was a leader on the pitch and clearly passionate about the game. He is young and ambitious no doubt he will have lots of strong connections in the game.

Yes the Ferdinand incident was dreadful, and he probably should never have shagged his best mates wife, but and I am only guessing if his character is the only thing people cannot see past, then that is a shame.

BTW I am not saying I want him as our manager as I would love to see Big Mick getting hold of this squad.

However if Terry did get the job I would back him like I would any manager.

He's never managed a team before. I'm not having him use us as his practice team, I accept there's a chance he could be amazing and we would be very pleased with ourselves if that was the case, but it's unlikely. Just look at when Gary Neville went to Valencia.

Personally I don’t see Terry coming here, nor wanting to come here.  Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s angling to replace Smith!!

..or shagging his wife !  probably both!

What’s the issue with Bowyer as a manager? He’s done well with Charlton.

I understand why people like Hughton seem a more logical fit, or why people are excited by Gerrard - but surely Bowyer wouldn’t be a ridiculous choice based on his record?

Not saying that I want Terry, but a majority on here will take Dean Smith and yet he’s the one buying and selling Villas defence let alone also working with them. 
Terry may of shagged Bridges Mrs but was they friends let alone best friends? We only assume because they were team mates. 
I said the other day, I suspect we’ve all got friends that when they were in their 20’s played around with other people’s partners. 
Also Phil Neville, seems like he’s being lumped into his brother’s management failures in Valencia. 
One thing is certain is both Terry and Neville have some great contacts to attract loans from high profile Premier league teams 

Still wouldn’t pick them as my choices though.

One of the main talking points in football at the moment is that there are not enough black managers/coaches getting opportunities. The candidate who is universally wanted by city fans, who is interested and also available at such a time, is a black man with very recent success achieving what we want to achieve. Imagine opting to take a punt on John Terry who as many have already stated, is an inexperienced coach and more to the point, a racist. Mind you, judging by reactions from our fans to the clubs black lives matter social media posts, Terry would probably be an apt appointment.

Surely the trio should be Terry, Bowyer & David Duke?

Only Bowyer of those 3 has any track record & as I alluded to above, I don’t want him anywhere near my club.

If we're looking at a recently retired player I think it's really important that they have the right assistant, preferably someone with experience and knowledge. 

For example, if Gary McAllister is part of the Steven Gerrard package, I can get on board with that.

Who would Neville be supported by? It's a big factor.

Hope is Scholes who can teach our midfield how midfielders should play.  But given his track record it will only be a few weeks

Is there not a conflict of interests as Phil Neville is a part owner of another football league club? They may be 2 divisions below us but they might not be in 2 seasons time. 

This came up when Scholes took over at Oldham briefly. I think it's alright as long as they aren't part of the day to day decisions at more than 1 club.

Ideal preference is 

An experienced manager that’s won promotion from this league before (Hughton, Allardyce, McCarthy)

A foreign coach that has managed at a top level in a good footballing country. (Slot, Van Bommel etc)

Manager that’s got a team promoted from League 1/2 in recent years (Ainsworth, Bowyer, Lowe etc)

Then a former big name player, I don’t want to be known as ‘players name’ Bristol City. (Gerrard, Cole, Terry) 

Then Phil Neville. Terrible job with the women’s side recently. No thanks

Imagine the influence Scholes could have on Walsh, Morrell and Massengo!

If we can’t get Hughton then I’d have Terry in a heartbeat........Connor alongside Mick.

I don’t know the facts as in depth as some here but it does surprise me that  an apparent “racist” like John Terry can get work coaching numerous black players without there being some kind of mutiny at his club and is even praised by some that have worked with him like Tammy Abraham. Is Tammy, who is a lot closer to the guy than the people who label him on here, wrong?
 

Similarly with Lee Bowyer, I don’t see an all white supremacist squad being assembled at Charlton and aren’t aware of any complaints about him since he took over. Are people aware of something I’m not?

Just proves how "ambitious" we are....... 

Why? The club haven’t intimated any of those three will be appointed or even interviewed to my knowledge? Dopey could put his hat in the ring but that’s got nothing to do whatsoever with the club.

I wouldn't want any of them and if we are going down this route then the clubs ambition needs to be questioned.  Where we are now as a club, it's either go big or go home IMO. I'd rather have kept LJ than have any of the three mentioned.  Let's hope it nonsense.

On another thread I said we could do a lot worse than Emma Hayes...

She's a successful manager in the women's game at least. Unlike 1 of those..

I’m hoping for someone “we couldn’t realistically do BETTER than” rather than someone we could do a lot worse than. The latter tag applies to a lot of managers and if want to progress we’ve got to bring in the best we can get that’s out there and willing to come.
