Next manager?

as an outsider kind of name what about Patrick Vieira, apparently very highly rated within football and made it know he feels ready for a job in Europe and being linked to the Arsenal job for what that's worth

I could see the Thais running the rule over the batch of World Cup coaches, and hiring one whose team shines in Russia. Roberto Martinez for example.

I've reviewed the current names and I can't say that many are enticing.
  • Rodgers is not someone that I've ever rated or liked. He strikes me as someone that has an inflated opinion of himself and his talents. He's alright but not someone I'd want to back with our future. He'd be a gamble that I don't think we need to take. A manager with an ego bigger than any of our players isn't likely to end well.
  • Benitez appears to be flavour of the month. I don't share this view. He's a tactician and someone that makes the best of what he's got. These attributes are to his credit. I just think he's pretty dour and negative. If we want to mess with the top six, we have to do it by messing with them, not playing a similar but slightly inferior version of their football.
  • Wenger is genuinely being talked about I see. I don't see it as either feasible or desirable. He's been finished as a manager for the last decade. Why on earth would we want a doddery old man who barely knows what year it is in charge?
  • Wagner is well thought of within the club according to accounts. He's the man they wanted last summer whilst they faffed about before giving it to Shakespeare. On the plus side, he moulds teams and gets a strong connection between players and fans. He's done an excellent job at Huddersfield. However, they are deadly dull to watch aren't they? The most boring team in the league - and that's a competitive prize. He's not quite good enough for me.
  • Silva is a talented coach. He's got a lot of attributes that appeal to me. But for a mis-step in wanting the Everton move so soon after arriving at Watford, he'd be very highly regarded I reckon. Young, ambitious and makes players better. A definite option.
  • Dyche would be both a safe pair of hands and a gamble at the same time. It's a weird one. He's a bit like Pearson only better. He'd build a strong defence. He'd get the players onside. I cannot decide whether it would be a really good fit or a really bad one. He'd be on my shortlist though.
Over and above any of this lot, I'd definitely have a go for Emery. He's just ideal for us, and us him, I think. Fonseca is also worth serious consideration. I still also like Mancini. If we fail there, I'd go with Silva.

My shortlist in order of preference:
  1. Emery
  2. Fonseca
  3. Mancini
  4. Silva
  5. Dyche
Send it in a letter to the club

My opinion of Dyche:
Great manager for Burnley. Ideal bloke for that job. I do like his ways BUT if he came here I think it would take a while to get up to speed. We'd all hate him before he came good.

Will Puel ever come good? I don't think we'll find out.

I have no earthly idea how Brendan Rodgers gets a mention, honestly. Watford, not bad. Reading, awful. Swansea, very good. Only thing of actual note he’s ever done in his managerial career. But then Liverpool, nothing. Since when he’s spent the last two years out of football collecting an infinite number of worthless shiny pots in Scotland.

Why in the world would anyone want him?

No other Liverpool manager has got as close to the Premier League title as him.

I think they might be well advised to avoid appointing ex- Southampton managers who have a proven track record of boring fans into giving up watching football.

If we do change management it needs to be quick, this is a very important summer for us. We need a clear transfer policy so a manager needs to be in place early to identify targets and potential want away players will be more likely to go if they don't know who will be in charge.

But I thought we wanted them all to go, as the title winning legends are now all poisonous shit-stirring manager sacking bastards whose skills have been found out , and all the new signings are all shit (as well as being poisonous etc. etc.)

So best leaving the new appointment 'til about August

That’s true, good point. Then they had a massive shit the following season, and he’s been on holiday watching park football ever since.
This is also true.

Their biggest problem was that they sold Suarez and replaced him with a load of shit. I doubt Rodgers had too much say in the signings there.

And yes you can’t judge his performance at Celtic because even my grandmother could win the SPL with Celtic, and she’s dead.

Posted in the Puel out thread but probably more appropriate to be here.

I wonder how many ‘good’ managers will look at us and think 'great opportunity'.

How many will look at the playing squad and think there is real quality to inherit.

How many will look at the attitude of the squad and think there is a real desire to perform week in week out.

How many will look at the desire of the squad to improve and develop.

Whilst I recognise we have some real advantages as well, the above will need sorting out once and forever this summer if we are to move on and look forward to the future with optimism.

Still quite a few.

sent my CV in can't be as bad as some on the merry go round list it is hard, not too many managers worth hiring out there.

I feel sorry for Appleton although if you saw the look on his face when the players went past him on Saturday there would be a few shitting it.
