Candidates for our next manager...

Recommended Posts

I just can’t see the logic long term behind Warnock. We will be in the exact same mess a year down the line. 😩

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!

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
