Other Manager Options (Merged)


Recommended Posts

I've just got this nagging feeling we have sounded out a young 'big-time' ex footballer who would be more adept working alongside Mark Ashton.

I'm thinking along the lines of Robbie Fowler, Phil Neville, Michael Carrick and Freddie Ljungberg - an ego based appointment to boost the reputation of the club.

Alternatives to Gerrard if you like. 

Ljungberg would be an interesting one potentially, certainly seems the 'head coach' type, Arsenal connections for young talent on loan. A Swede who could convince Elliason to stay put. 

Trying to convince myself we are at least going in a different direction at this stage !

Same thinking with me, except I wonder about an older name also as D of F / consultant and getting both available could be the delay.

Robbie Fowler as the young gun ? Wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest.

Agreed I mentioned Michael Carrick a couple of weeks ago once the Gerrard thing supposedly ended. Carrick with an older head alongside him.

Robbie Fowler is into his Real Estate business whilst football is useful for meet ups.

Good thinking. I notice Ljungberg was in the Skybet odds a few days ago. Not sure if still there.

Mike Phelan Rumoured to be leaving Man United after the Europa league. Perhaps that's what City are waiting for

Always thought that he would be a great manager.

 

Don't know why.

We could be but no, no,no!

I hope not- not convinced by any, personally- Fowler, Phil Neville- are you kidding??

A merge too far? Totally get the need to merge occasionally but  this thread has been rendered nonsensical by the merges. 

May I suggest an au contraire moment? 

My suggestion being defined simply by the fact that this entire process lasting now some 5 weeks is indeed in itself non sensical. 🤪

Big Tone style summary: make sense of this thread and you've cracked the new gaffer code.

I am increasingly convinced that the length of the process and the silence from the club means something odd is happening, but possibly in a good way. 
I reckon when the announcement is made, phrases like “I didn’t see that coming”, “wow, let’s go effing mental” and “well done City, I was never one of the doom merchants” will be common on here.

....Or Dean is still on the beach at Weston and they don’t want to disturb him to tell him the good news. Everyone deserves a nice holiday.

Based on nothing whatsoever, I've woke up this morning with a strange feeling it's going to be Ryan Giggs.

He's going to bring Mason Greenwood on a season long loan.

* All of this delay has been SL and MA negotiating with the FAW. *

Although none have managed at a high level the likes of Lowe & Wellens are driven full of passion and in my opinion would be way ahead of Holden
