Hi chaps
just a question, what other decent managers are free at the moment. the only one that springs to mind is zidane! just feel hughes is not the right guy.

This is the question nobody ever seems to think about when talking about firing a manager!

Can't think of many either to be honest. Allardyce and Moyes spring to mind, but I don't find either of them particularly inspiring.

Forget Allardyce and Moyes, they must surely be done at the top level.

The club should be looking for a Poch Mk II. Take a risk on fresh ideas. I'd heard that we were in with a shout of landing Bielsa. If that's true, why didn't we get him? I can only imagine the board thought he was too much of a risk.

It's frustrating to see managers like Wagner, Espirito Santo, Gracia coming into the Prem and playing interesting football and getting results (you know, like we used to) while we pay a dinosaur a fortune to bore the rubbish out of us.

I don't care who it is or where he comes from, I want an inspiring manager with a bit of fire in his belly, someone who can make the squad play as more than the sum of its parts, not less.

maybe Paul Sturrock or Steve Wigley? At the rate fans are wanting to sack managers we'll be going back to that era where we went through 6 managers in under 2 years.

Can't say that was entirely down to the fans and nor would this be.

There's a few free managers that have managed different clubs outside of England. Here's a few of them:
- Ralph Hasenhüttl - spent the past 2 seasons at Leipzig
- Vincenzo Montella - previously managed Seville last season, but has also managed AC Milan and Fiorentina
- Markus Weinzierl - managed Schalke.

Maybe a bit left field but what would people think about Steve Holland? Not sure if he's looking for a management role at all but he continued his work as assistant manager at Chelsea whilst working as England U21 Assistant Manager although that role is a little different to management and he may want to focus fully on this England project for as long as it lasts before committing his full time and attention to the possibility of management. If he was interested though, he ticks a lot of boxes.

Apart from the box which says : Is he a football manager?

Upon reflection and today’s game he probably wouldn’t do any worse.
