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.


2.) 26 Sep 2018 16:29:29
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.


4.) 26 Sep 2018 18:00:28
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.


6.) 26 Sep 2018 21:54:35
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.


7.) 27 Sep 2018 17:17:22
Apart from the box which says : Is he a football manager?


8.) 29 Sep 2018 17:03:45
Upon reflection and today’s game he probably wouldn’t do any worse.

Pierre Emil Hojbjerg. You are a flipping legend. what a goal. redderz has been awesome so far as well love it.

Our most improved player totally demanding in midfield
He’s had some confidence boosting seasons which have to be honest pushed him at the moment to our best midfielder
Ledge status atm.


2.) 17 Sep 2018 21:49:18
All that only to be ruined by JWP. Really don't rate him and this only makes me feel he is less and less a good fit for us. Maybe I'm just over exaggerating though.


3.) 18 Sep 2018 10:01:40
yeah I agree
seems his only use is set pieces but doenst offer anything else really in open play.

yeah would like to see him start firing.
need some goals from wing areas and a few more from lemina would cement how good the guy is.

I am well up for this guy coming in but don't everyone get there hopes up. if he does flop than there will be more angry people around. however I do have big hopes for the guy, and hopefully, while he does all his amazing attacking football, he can help us to defend as well.

Ill take a loss as long as its only by two goals. which is unlikely. Please can we just score a goal though. Prefferably Redmond, or Hojbjerg against his former manager.

haha pep.
i personally think fulham have a better squad than us, but jokavonic doesn't seem to be able to get mawson, chambers etc, to defend properly. agree with wagner, and about benitez, do we want see good football, but lose, or benitez style, but get results?

Yep I agree would like too see Hoedt Dropped and Vestergaard starting. Ings and Gabbiadini are actually very good goalscorers and as for the midfield. Lemina and Hojbjerg are brilliant and we have good options off the bench with Romeu, Davis etc. Also Hojbjerg would make a great captain.

Might make them score but.

yeah agree there 123. I would definitely like to see armstrong play at no. 10 in a 4-2-3-1- formation. also agree with the grass being greener. we have a decent squad, and reed and mcqueen were highly unlikely to get much gametime. wish sims had stayed though.

Hmm yeah if only ings had the chances everyone else had.
yep agree with gallagher, would like to see him start with ings. don't agree with the jwp thing. yes he's amazing at set pieces but what else? I don't think even he know his favourite position.
