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
Send it in a letter to the clubI've reviewed the current names and I can't say that many are enticing.
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.
- 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.
My shortlist in order of preference:
No other Liverpool manager has got as close to the Premier League title as him.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?
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.)potential want away players will be more likely to go if they don't know who will be in charge.
This is also true.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.
Still quite a few.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.
