The Managerial Merry-go-round


Recommended Posts

Must be the end of his career basically. Probably a noble move, but admitting you can't hack it won't go down well.

Steve Coppell must have done this about 5 times and he had no bother continuing to get work. There'll be a job in the Championship for Holloway if he wants it, great manager at that level and can do wonders with a small budget.

I forgot to say Good Riddance to the odius f***ing charlatan. He can rant at himself in the bathroom mirror now.

 

No laughing matter, man. That'll probably manifest itself in some form of domestic violence. :(

 

Does he actually have form for that?

 

I know his wife had cancer and his kids are deaf and he was apparently very supportive of his wife and used to travel stupid distances so he could see his children everyday and help them through their schooling (apparently poor provision for deaf kids in Somerset).

Never quite understood the Holloway dislike.  He seems like a decent bloke and I think he is underrated as a manager.  As others have pointed out, almost no point taking an unfancied team up into the Premier League as your reputation suffers unfairly.  It was an amazing achievement to get Blackpool and Palace up and remarkable that he even got Blackpool close to staying up.

:thup: While playing attractive football.

He's pretty much admitted that he's made some big mistakes since he got Palace promoted. He's very unfortunate in that 2 of his very best players that helped get them promoted, the ones which had the best chance of making the step-up got sold/permacrocked. So he bought too many players (of questionable quality) to take their place. Thus not really strengthening enough in other areas. This also destroyed the group strength/attitude that brought them up.

 

However, I#m not sure Pulis is the right man for the job. Crystal Palace are known for developing decent youngsters. Mostly attacking players: Wright, Moses, Zaha, Routledge, Clyne, Bolassie. They continually bring them through. Can't see Pulis developing the next batch.

Not sure it's the players quality he's questioning more the character and personality of the players he's brought it. I wouldn't think the continental scouting system at Palace is up to much so most of the european players they've brought in may have been on the advise of agents etc.

Fairplay to him for resigning but he  made the same mistakes twice with 2 different promoted teams. He didn't have the ruthlessness like SAF to get rid of the dross in summer and recruit some solid midtable PL players who can keep them up. Just compare his signings to Brucie's and you'll get the idea

 

Next in line McKay, Hughton and Jol

It's both. You would take 11 Tevez's at Newcastle. There isn't the jump in quality to compensate for the loss of team spirit for Palace.

That's not what happened. In fact it's the opposite. Brought too many in (without a significant jump in quality) and destroyed the team spirit as a result.

:thup: the man is a monumental c***. That "wacky" facade is extremely irritating and basically a veneer for the prick underneath

 

His family life doesn't suggest he is a monumental cunt or a prick. Comes across as one of the more human managers, shame he got turned into a sideshow.

Jol & Hughton are fighting for their roles. Mackay is a sitting duck.

I don't get this, they are out of the relegation spots (just), and they have had a couple of decent results against top teams. So far he is doing everything asked of him, and thats keep Cardiff up. The guy will have huge amount of respect as he was the one who got them up when other managers have tried and failed.

 

I don't see how he can currently be under enough pressure to give him the sack.

They have a nutcase owner who has undermined him ridiculously. He could quit and sue them for constructive whatsitcalled and win easily imo.

His leaving of Plymouth was a typical part of modern football. He went on record later to say that how he acted in leaving Plymouth was not good enough.

 

:lol: John Terry winner of a ketchup poll beating previous incumbent Peter Andre...

 

The fact that when he was manager at QPR he made a 250 mile commute so that his children could attend a deaf school in Bristol isn't relevant. Fair enough.

 

Just not sure what your sauce is for calling him a monumental cunt or a prick.
