Said this since day one , he’s the best realistic candidate we could get , he would be mad to turn us down to stay at Brighton aswel.

I think he'd be mad to leave Brighton right now they look really good and things here look an utter shitshow right now

ruben amorim would be a great appointment imo..wonder if he's been on the list 

 

:thup: Would face the issue of convincing someone to leave a club in the middle of the Champions or Europa League, again. But still the type of person we should be looking at.

Yeah waiting till Monday and till January are identical 

a bit of exaggeration on my part but the point I was trying to make is - we seemed to have jacked off 4 games (inc Brighton) so far and now waiting till Monday will likely mean eating into 1 week or all of the international break before a new manager arrives.   So does that now mean we are jacking off 5 games?    Just how many games are the new owners willing to write off before they get someone in?    We have 3 winnable games after the international break and then rest are 'take what's coming but we all know its a thrashing' games to Jan.   We could be on 4 point in Jan and then we really are relegated.

I don't think going to Newcastle who have a team that's 6 points from safety and hasn't been improved in the few years since multiple trophy winner Rafa Benitez struggled to keep us in the league is the draw some people think it is. Particularly when most going in now will know that it's not a long-term thing for them. Emery would have been ideal in the same way that Rafa could have been because you'd think that they could do the short and the long-term.

I'd just go all out for Potter personally.

 

Having what is looking like it's going to be an amazing season at Brighton.

 

Not sure he'd switch from that to trying to keep us up and sorting out our mess.

The top bracket of managers won't come here yet. Managers at clubs doing well won't take the risk. Rafa won't ever break contract and he's not getting sacked soon. Fonseca seems to really want the job, Howe would be an okay choice, Favre has had no news about him really and Martinez is a fucking fraud who should be avoided. Get Fonseca imo, would be done really quickly which we need and he really wants to come here and let's face it, we're 6 points from safety after 10 games, have a squad that's desperate for coaching and improvement and have a horrid fixture list in December. No brainer for me.

Exactly, we need a transitional manager at the minute. Somebody to steady the ship, keep us up and kick on from there.

I’m not really understanding the Howe hate mind. I’ve been pretty apathetic about football for the last couple of years but I always remember Bournemouth being praised for their attacking football and trying to score goals. Watched a couple of interviews with him and sounds like injuries killed them in that last year, things probably went a bit stale after such a long time but seems like he done a pretty decent job start to finish. Always thought he speaks well too. Not saying I’d be jumping for joy (I wanted conte ffs) but certainly seems a better bet than Martinez, Lampard etc

I'm no massive fan or owt but how did Martinez's reputation go down the pan so dramatically? I'd put him easily on par with the likes of Howe.

 

To be honest, would take anyone outside the old boy's club at this rate. As above, trying to secure safety this season is all that matters and that's not happening under Jones.

There must be a reason Fonseca isn't on the shortlist.

 

 

 

Howe and Martinez ( :anguish: ) are so whoever's drawn it up needs looking at, like. Staveley was apprently impressed by his interview a few weeks back. Must be that PIF or whoever are being drawn into the 'need PL experience' thing. Only reason I can think of.

Whether Howe is good enough or not, matter of opinion i guess, but he's infinitely better than Bruce or any other imbecile Ashley would have appointed (Rafa and Hoots aside).

I'm not going to stamp my feet we're not signing a big name, fucking hell a month ago it looked like a full season of 'well you knooow'.

 

This is the start of something, and no doubt the new owners will make the odd bad decision, but we're in such a better place than we've probably ever been, even if it doesn't look like it right now.

Found it interesting we "apparently" approached Joachim Lowe too and were turned down. Against the narrative of Premiership experience that seems to be key from all the noise that has been leaked out. Probably whats keeping them from Favre and Fonseca. 

 

I am assuming AVB simply isn't interested as he has been screaming out at me the last week and a half. Think he would be beyond perfect, especially if we get Henrique as they are good friends.

 

Whatever happens we need someone in for Monday. Preferably before the weekend.

As a counterpoint to that, it could be said the job is potentially very rewarding; any manager who arrives and begins to show even minimal improvement in the short term will find a fanbase full of praise and admiration - much like Rafa received. It wouldn't take much for a new manager to find himself in a position where he's backed by the supporters unwaveringly due to the downtrodden, apathetic feeling in the stands and beyond during the last few seasons. That's without mentioning the inevitable and substantial financial backing.

For a manager, unwavering support from the fans and financial backing from the owner is about as much as could be wished for. Both would be absolutely achievable here with even minimal success on the pitch.

I reckon it started with him defending the tackle on Haidara by Mcmanaman, he acted like a right arsehole over that.
