The Managerial Merry-go-round


Recommended Posts

Jol's always seemed like a complete journeyman manager to me. He's won the Dutch Cup once with Ajax and that's it, isn't it? Even Schteve pipped him to the Eredivisie title.

 

Seems a good bloke, though.

 

You can't deny his part on the rise of Spurs, he took them from mid-table to top 6 which was a huge step for them. He's a good manager and coach but he needs the right club or project I suppose. I'd have him here over Pardew for example but then I'd have most over Pardew.

 

Ironic that your very first sentence could also describe Newcastle & Pardew. ;)

 

I'd say Hughton played a bigger role in our rise...

 

If anything under Pardew we haven't risen at all, we have stood still almost.

 

I love Hughton but no idea where you get that from. A lot of the key players in Hughton's team (Barton, Nolan, Carroll, could even include Routledge as he was immense for us when we got promoted etc..) weren't here when we finished 5th.

 

Hughton got us promoted and shouldn't have been sacked when he was but seriously?

 

Eh?! He took us up, consolidated us. Therefore he has played a big role in our rise. Pardew took us to 5th but we haven't actually kicked on, we're pretty much where we were at when he took over, although we currently stand in a great position in the table.

 

Consolidated us? He was here less than half a season as our top flight manager ???

Picked Hughton, MacKay, and Villas Boas. All three would be a mistake IMO.

 

The next to go will probably be Hughton. I still don't understand why he's in so much trouble. A home loss to Villa aside, I think they've done about as good as can be expected. Can't see them getting much from their next four so he'll be gone.

 

Still, a loss away to Fulham ought be enough to see AVB off. Here's hoping.

Still got no idea why Stoke appointed Hughes, was always going to be a disaster.

 

Football clubs are just absolutely mental tbh. So many appointments where everyone else in the world can see it is a shit decision but for some reason they happen.

 

Fair play to Southampton, they seem to have appointed a manager away from the norm who has got them performing well.

:thup:

There's just absolutely no point whatsoever to appoint Mark Hughes or Tony Pulis, it's never going to end well. There are probably loads of managers about in the world if clubs could just be bothered to do a bit of scouting instead of just looking at the list of currently unemployed British dross. As you say, fair play to Southampton, even if it wouldn't have worked out at least they would have tried something different.

Hughton Allerdyce and McKay for me are the 3 favorites

McKay because of the uncertainty with the owner more than how he's doing tbh 

 

MacKay spent quite a bit and they're 17th. Add that to the owner being a bellend and he's a couple of bad results away from the sack.

Opted against Hughton this time since delia must be sucking his cock since he's still in a job. Went for Mackay, although results haven't been too bad, always get the feeling the bloke in charge is dying to get rid and bring someone new in. Can see him being gone by the new year.

Hughton is a very nice guy...but god, his team is awful. I'd be asking for explanations if I was Norwich's chairman

 

22M expenditure this summer and I simply haven't seen any improvement. Even more shit defensively and still as inept going forward.

They'll probably stay in the league because there are 3 shittier teams, but can't see Norwich progressing to even solid-midtable with him. His team is incredibly naive away from home. Hope RvW comes back and finds some form. Like both Norwich and Hughton, so hopefully it'll somehow work for all of parties involved.
