Seriously, could somebody explain why they'd be happy with David Wagner?
Every complaint laid at Warnock's style of football can be laid at Wagner's but worse.
Promoted scoring 56 goals and conceding 58, they won the play-offs without one of their players scoring, an own goal and 2 penalty shootouts.
The very next season, Warnock got promoted automatically scoring 69 and conceding 39.
He kept Huddersfield them up in the first season with a fairly meagre 37 points and then stank out the league the next season and he was sacked with them on 11 points after 22 games.
Did a terrible job at Schalke too.
I can understand people who want a new direction and a new manager, though I disagree, but I cannot understand why anyone would want David Wagner.
last time I saw his salary figure, he was offering to accept a reduction from £4m a year he was on at Bournemouth.. but do we really want to be spending more on a manager than half a dozen players. I know you have to pay for quality, but like the players, there should be a figure that we won't go over.. no point in a Prem manager if it means Div 1 squad (wages wise)
Agreed. I might be making this up but I swear one of the reasons he left burnley was he missed the South. He's not likely to come all the way up here anyway if that's true.
Plus he'll have better opportunities than us.
Im convinced Warnock will be given first dibs but not convinced he will want another season here. So who next?... at the end of the day one man and one man only will get a say and a casting vote but chances are,given his track record , thats not going to make things better. for me its a lottery and a game of chance. As with picking a striker to net you lots of goals you just have to hope you happen across the perfect fit. im happpy to appoint a totally unknown and hope for that outcome . Bruce Rioch is a prime example , no one had any clue about his abilities as a manager but he did a marvellous job on a shoestring. but then look what happened at ARSENAL for the same guy ...and look what happpened immediately after with an unknown french manager. i knew nothing about john neal and lennie lawrence prior to them getting the job here but they both worked out well. sometimes it just falls nicely in place.
as a footnote is anyone noticing the perfect storm forming on the horizon with AK seemingly 2 or 3 losses away from becoming available.
