Re: New manager thread

Bookies have ex-Tottenham manager Juande Ramos as favourite.  Has worked with Orta and Bravo before so I can see why.  Doesn't excite me.

Re: New manager thread

Back to square one. I can see why Monk left now.

Re: New manager thread

If you count my stint at Tardebigge Under8s, I've got as much football management experience as he has.

Re: New manager thread

Let's see how we get on

It's not the most 'big name' of managers but it's about what he does with us i guess

Let's see who he's allowed to bring in.  A flood of Kostas',  Christos',  Michalis',  and Yiorgos' anyone?

Is James Beatie staying as first team coach?  I like him.  Used to like him as a player too.

If Wood's improvement was down to Beattie he's a bloody good coach or shrink!

Re: New manager thread

Priceless. the new chairman is the same as the old chairman; a nut job.
'So, what's the plan then boys?'
"Well Chairman, we should kick on from a more than respectable effort last season and get into the premiership where we will receive shedloads of lucre just for turning up. So let's get a proven winner and pay him stacks of cash."
'Great, I've got us Thoma Christenenio'
"Excellent choice Chairman. He'd be related to Cruyffos, right?"
'Here's your wad, you can all fuck off now.'
"yep, yep, yep"

Anybody know how to get to Torquay? Anybody care?

Paddy power best keep the odds going. This guy won't get a turkey out of the job .

To stand aside is to take sides.

Re: New manager thread

He got that Cypriot side into the last 16 of the UEFA something? As said above, it is very clear why Monk was quick with his decision, no fucking around negotiating with us I guess. I don't blame him for leaving, he's serious about his job.

Just hope we can keep hold of Clotet, but that seems a distant hope now I suspect.

Re: New manager thread

Monk was leaving no matter what.
Think that was pretty evident from March onwards.

As for the dozens of names that were linked only Chique Flores, the ex Watford manager really jumped out at me.
Even Ranieri would have been a gamble in this division....An expensive one too.

Apparently Christiansen interview really well,rolled out a presentation with a profile on each player and highlighted weaknesses in the squad.
Sounds like he's done his homework.
Definitely a Leftfield appointment, just hope the poor cunt gets longer than some of his predecessors got.
