Candidates for our next manager...

Recommended Posts

I just can‚Äôt see the logic long term behind Warnock. We will be in the exact same mess a year down the line. ūüė©

I don’t see Warnock staying for more than a year and I am praying that Gibson can see that a maximum of a year is just masking the issue that we need to face a year down the line, which makes Warnock the wrong choice.  

How could you recruit a new squad for a manager who is on a year contract? Surely we would just be in this position when Warnock left, but with more players on the pay roll? 
 

Then we hunt for a new manager and low and behold, we then shift on the Warnock wanderers because they don’t fit the new guys style or tactics? 
 

Am i going crazy or is the Warnock option getting less appealing each day?

 

I completely agree.

I don't see how the commute from Cornwall to Middlesbrough can be healthy either unless he was prepared to move up here with his wife for the sake of a year.

If he signed a 2yr contract then I could possibly understand it and that would give him more time to put foundations in place and wouldn't be waste of what I see as a VITAL summer in the market.

What I don't want to see is that we waste this transfer window by buying players who suit the Warnock way, and when he leaves in a year then a new manager once again has to take over a side that suited Warnock style of play for the sake of 1 season.

We need someone with experience yes, but someone who is going to sick round for a minimum of 3-4years. Someone like Pearson, Johnson or Paul cook

Don't see the appeal in Pearson at all. The bloke is a nutter and not a great coach, he's been sacked by Watford for glaring errors that have lead them back into the relegation fight after looking like they were clear. Steer well clear imo.

I would of agreed with you before the Woodgate appointment mate, but I just feel the club now requires a completely different identify and personnel who are not afraid to shake things up behind the scenes (especially with Bausor).

Pearson, Shakespeare and Steve Walsh (chief scout) is just a massive refreshing shake up which I think we require.

Walsh has found some excellent bargains like Mahrez, Shakespeare has previous manager experience so it would be a strong core to the backroom staff.

Yes, Pearson is a hot head but he knows what Gibson is all about so it could just work out.

They're further clear of the drop than they were after having beaten Liverpool.

3 points clear of relegation now, whilst before the restart they were out of it by goal difference alone.

He's been sacked early because he fell out with the owners, even though he has likely saved the club from what looked like certain relegation. Hopefully they get relegated now. Knobhead owners.

One advantage Pearson has over other managerial contenders is the fact he knows Gibson and understands how the club works. He wouldn't be taking the job under false pretences. And Gibson would presumably only appoint him knowing there'd be robust conversations (and maybe the odd headlock) to come.

Totally agree with that and mentioned it a few months back, that management team has the potential to rectify a lot of our problems. Experienced coaches, promotion under the belt and a track record with recruitment. Think it’s a solution stating us in the face tbh.

Too good of an opportunity to turn down if you ask me especially as they are all out of work which all know that is the route Gibson prefers.

The only appeal there for me is in Walsh, and whilst he's had some highlight signings he also utterly flopped at Everton when he was shipped there as a super scout. I don't think the baggage and effort that it would require to keep Pearson happy is worth it just to get a decent scout. If we're that interested in Walsh then go and get him and offer him what he wants, leave Pearson out of it for me.

What if Birmingham go down tomorrow?

I think he will still end up there.

He's after a project and his stock isn't really high. Clayts could still do a job in league one.

I am interested to hear what you would like to see happen at the club for next appointment?

Ideal world I'd take Pearson over Warnock he built that Leicester team in the Championship and moulded them into one of the fiercest Championship title winners in history they ruined teams week in week out. But every sign is pointing to Warnock which I hope means he'll give the next year a proper go and maybe move to Yarm for the year that commute Pulis was doing clearly didn't work out well for us he seemed almost part time sometimes he was banging the drum of only wanting players who wanted to move to Middlesbrough whilst spending half a day a week on a train!

If not Pearson I'd take Warnock if not either I have no clue who that would be I remember the stories last summer about Daniel Stendel's suitors in higher ups but he just got sacked and relegated Hearts we wont take in work managers so I'm not seeing a host of options I'd be confident handing the job of a rebuild to be honest.

its quite funny that a lot of the people who want Pearson are the same people who's first criticism of karanka is that he fell out with everyone..

 

They're in for a nasty surprise!

    • There will need to be some serious psychological rather than tactical decisions made by NW for the Swans game. Was it fatigue, was it the weather, was it those misses that could have seen us three nil up by thirty minutes and cruising at Huddersfield? I am fully in Warnock's camp but there is a question mark over his use of Subs at times. He usually calls it right but there are now a couple of occasions when he has used them poorly and if fatigue is a contributory¬†reason then he has to start using more than three and more importantly he has to start changing and influencing games sooner with them. Some tough calls to be made and it is imperative that he does it without favour. There needs to be a clear message of shape up or lose your place. Easier said than done of course with such a small and inexperienced squad but below par mediocrity must have consequences regardless of status or reputation. For clarity that isn't aimed just at Britt who is the obvious target after Saturday, there were a few others who struggled for whatever reason. ¬†
    • Tough game. Need to win with the way the top-6 is shaping up. Really tough to call after the display at Huddersfield and conceding 3 goals all from open play. I think it'll be a dire 1-1 with Swansea the happier team.
    • I think by now we all know that we thought we had bought Britt, the mythical legend who scored goals for fun at this level. The realty is that we bought a "goalscorer" that nobody else was willing to match¬†the asking price for and over time we have found out why. What compounds the issue is that having identified his strengths and weaknesses a succession of Managers have managed to set up Boro¬†teams to play¬†to those¬†weaknesses. When I have conversations with fans of other clubs I'm often surprised when I raise a topic on a Player of theirs that I rate to find some negativity from them. Its the same with us, we have players that other fans rate but they don't watch them as intimately, week in, week out over several seasons as we do. Usually we have an opinion of a competitors player based on a few headline performances,¬†great saves or defending condensed into¬†two minute snippets on a Saturday night or heaven forbid, the goals they scored against us. Jordan Hugill is a beast of a Striker who will get you goals at this level except when he came here instead of being a beast he was sat on his backside doing a one man¬†impression of the Gap Bands "oops upside your head". Kris Boyd, Scott McDonald, Jordan Rhodes etc. etc. there is a very long historical list. It works equally in reverse of course, Liverpool paid over two million for Brad Jones, its just that it seems to work against us more than for us. ¬†
    • Never a problem. Log in, pay and turn the stream on. All done within 2 mins.
    • Seen the highlights. Terrible misses and terrible defending. Stuff like that loses games. Swansea is very important now.
