Candidates for our next manager...

Recommended Posts

Do we have any ITKs about the Warnock situation? I thought the club would have announced quickly on Thursday that he’d signed a 2 year contract. Knowing Gibson, we won’t even get an announcement now and he’ll just be there come the start of the new season a la Agnew

We are too small a club to ‘buck the trend’. 
If we find a manager who performs well enough for us to want to keep him (promotion and prem establishing) he will most likely get taken by a bigger team.

If we have a manager no other team wants it means he’s most likely under performing and will eventually get sacked.

The closest we have came to bucking the trend is Karanka, I think he was one of the few who felt an actual connection (Juninho style) to the club and area and would have turned down job offers from other mediocre teams to stay here.

I think Mowbray would have stayed longer.  He was here at the wrong time.  I wonder what he would have done with Monk's money.

I would imagine they are sorting legal contract stuff out and possibly giving bad news to some of the coacHes from last season. Warnock also needs to get the nod from his Mrs as well.

Do we even know for definite if the planned meeting actually took place?

I'd love Daniel Stendel, even if it's a bit of a gamble.

Lol he another one whose hype is lost on me. Did well in getting Barnsley up from league 1 but then struggled in Championship and left after 1 win in 11 games. Then ended up at Hearts and I believe again struggled there.

Therefore nothing to suggest a guy who sole success has come at League 1 along with difficult spells in championship and Scotland after it is even close to being the answer for us.

And with all respect i dont think he would be a "bit of a gamble" but just a stupid gamble in the current circumstances. And we made a stupid gamble about this time last year and it very nearly backfired in the most devastating of fashions.

hes probs asked for £10m in transfer fees and Gibbo told him to *** off lol

Gibson doesn’t care about giving managers money to spend. His one red line, however, is anyone who wants to take away too much control from him and his beloved Gary Gill. The only way I can imagine Warnock not staying is if he wants too much control.

Apparently Gibbo's keeping  he's options open and  waiting to interview Pochettino and Benitez before he announces that Warnock was the stand out candidate for the job nudge nudge wink wink say no more Steve :classic_wink:

Can't imagine Warnock's got an impressive PowerPoint presentation though.

Mondays are usually the "good news" days so I wouldnt be surprised if this is the case.

Although they would have had to take the pics already because warnock is on holiday now.

    • I think people are getting carried away in believing NW will build a potential promotional squad next season, were as I believe he is employed to balance the books with bargain bin players for championship sustainability.  I don’t believe NW signed to ensure promotion only then to walk away if it was achieved, because the squad would need to be rebuilt to maintain its position. Like I said I believe his role is to mop up and leave, which makes sense simply because he is not building for the following season and has nothing to prove or answer for, he trots off into retirement, after balancing the books with  a team that can reasonably compete in a league the town can afford.    
    • I have watched some higlights different angles from the first Swansea goal .. If the ball doesnt deflect off Spence .. It would be off target across the box
    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
