Discussion in 'Leicester City' started by bocadillo, Mar 12, 2017.
Like the one we were on before he took on the job, which he then turned around to a winning streak?
I didn't know this, but Shakey was caretaker manager of WBA in 2006 for 1 game. He won. He's never lost a game as manager. If he keeps that up, well... Atletico, Barca and Real better watch out...
Was mulling over this today and wondering if Shakey continues to have an excellent end to the season will the owners have the appetite for the outcry they would face for replacing another popular manager, even if they want a 'bigger name'?
Let's wait until he has "an excellent end to the season" before discussing it. If we lose tonight it's of no consequence.
Because he loses one game?
No. Because fans are fickle.
If he wins big cup, he becomes a big name
The commentator on this stream has just mentioned about that West Brom win too.
It's been on every commentary for the last 4 games.
Surely Shakey gets the job? Please god?!!
Should the owners wait to see if can inspire a couple of Away winning performances first?
I think we need to pray for a large bunch of consecutive defeats just to see how he copes.
Palace, Arse, Spurs, Everton....our prayers will likely be answered to some capacity.
7 points out of that lot.
Craig Shakespeare's job was to save us from relegation and he has done this. I find it difficult to imagine him agreeing going back to being a number two. While the sacking of Claudio has proved successful it was a public relations disaster at the time. The owners will be anxious to avoid more bad publicity.
I was critical of the owners when they sacked Nigel Pearson and again when they sacked Claudio. In both cases they proved me wrong. They will no doubt be reassured that I now give them a vote of confidence
I'm sure they were conflicted - Loved the man ( as we all did) but hated the results.
If CS carries on winning, the least we can do is enjoy the results, love will come in time...
I liked Shakey's brave choice of team for Saturday. Hopefully he keeps this up.
Interesting comments to radio Leicester after the Madrid match about how the media aspect of the job is far larger than he had any idea about. Made me wonder if he is enjoying all asp of management.
If what has been reported is true and accurate then didnt shakey and phillips run the show last season? If you look at CR over his managerial career he always has an initial impact and then loses the plot soon after, it was NP team that won the league CR had the sense not to tinker with it. We finished the previous season under NP with the best form in the league I recall a lot of posters on here expecting a top 8 finish until NP was sacked, I was not shocked at how we started last season I was shocked that we actually pulled it off and for that great credit must go to CR and how he handled the environment.
Back to the thread in hand Shakey knows and understands the club, it is about building that ethos also he has the chance to carry on introducing young hungry players that crucially no one will see coming! If you are a talented youngster or indeed cutting the mustard in the league 1 or the Championship there is no better club to sign for than us. CR tried to take us away from that ethos this season to state that the signings this summer were previously scouted just does not stack up, they were unequivocally CR targets and they under performed.
I hope the owners stick with Shakey and we carry on with the blue print that has brought us the greatest success in our history
