Paulo Fonseca was the name I was trying to remember yesterday.

 

Apparently he was on the list to become manager had the takeover gone through previously, and was later linked with Tottenham though that didn't go through in the end either.

Has to be a big name. Conte stands out. You do not want to start off with an average manager and struggle before appointing the big name you should have gotten the first time round.

 

Big name players can come gradually but fuck it if I see Chris Wilder being linked again.

Not totally up to date with modern continental managers, Is he the lad who played up top for Napoli in the 90s?

Don't think so, no.

 

Ah, just seen @Wolfcastle's post that was Daniel Fonseca.

It feels weird as an NUFC fan to sit here seeing people turn their nose up at people like Martinez or Gerrard.

 

A week ago I’d have licked a cats poo in the garden for either of them.

 

It’s going to take me a while to recognise we’re not shopping from the bins anymore. 

 

My ultimate wish would be Conte, but to be frank I’d be happy with anyone and give them all a clean slate to work with.

It's very petty but if he's turned down an approach from us based on our current stature then I don't want Conte, ever. That said, I don't think he'd be a good fit for us anyway, I think we need someone who can get involved with the fans more, like Rafa, Keegan and Robson did. Rafa would still be my preferred choice but I can't see him going back on a contract. I think Poch would get in with the fans, after seeing what he was like at Spurs, I'm not sure whether Gerrard's ready yet after only having managed a pub team and I really don't know enough about Favre or Fonseca (not tuning my nose up at either of them, just don't know enough about them).
