Hate it when we are looking for a new manager, all sorts of silly people come out of the woodwork making dopey suggestions.


I know, right? Some idiot keeps suggesting Gareth Ainsworth!

A proven Footbal League manager who has done an incredible job with average players? Yeah crazy suggestion........


Who, Sol Campbell? Agreed.

Don’t particularly care who we get, just get on with it and give them the time to meet the players and work with them. Should have a new guy in before Tuesday/Wednesday the absolute latest, not like last year which took over two weeks

Hound Interesting that Bowen has gone right out very quickly. Hughes back to favourite.

Roy Keane? Maybe. Be a gamble but yeah there is a bit of me that would like to see it. It might work


Won Sunderland promotion having taken them over as the bottom placed club - so has shown it can turn around a shoddy ship. I feel it definitely needs to be someone who will scare the living shits out of the players a bit, so Hughes/Keane would fit that role.

Keane has a 38% win rate in his 2 jobs mostly at this level, which is surprisingly good.

Must admit Ainsworth wouldn’t be the top of my list. He’d have my support if he came but it rarely works pinching a manager from the lower leagues, just like Nathan Jones is showing so far this season and Paul Hurst last season

He was very good at Sunderland. I'm agreed on the need to employ a pcunt, and he very clearly fits that bill. Searching around, he is clearly looking to get back into management so I suspect he would be very keen on it

I read his book a few years ago and found it pretty entertaining. He clearly has the ability to manage a team if he can control his own nutcase tendencies.

Be pretty entertaining anyway. We might be rubbish but at least it wouldn't be boring.

If the board are seriously considering hiring Roy Keane and to a lesser extent Mark Hughes it would suggest to me that the players have been taking the piss a bit or the previous management gave them too much rope. Lack of discipline perhaps?

There isn't an obvious firebrand or trouble maker in the squad and I remember something coming out about a previous manager (Clement?) removing 'strong personalities' from the squad.

quite possibly. Obvs its only speculation at the moment, we might get another cuddly Gomes type coach come in to put an arm round them all

If Keane is genuinely being considered then there's a fair chance Bowen has been seeing things he hasn't liked from the player's attitude

This might be neither here nor there, but haven't Sky Sports just signed him up on a nice contract? Would we have to pay it out? :lol:

I think like with Neville previously, there would be a release clause in the event of a club coming in for him

Saw some article saying that one of the reasons he signed up with Sky was to try and keep himself visible for another manager's gig

The rumour with Clement was that he was actually too nice.

Gomes seemed to come in a be a bit stricter, but maybe too clumsily (banishing squad members etc)

Stanage how noone is mentioning Gareth Ainsworth. Managed Wycombe since 2012 and done well considering virtually no budget. Won a promotion from League couple seasons ago and his side are currently 2nd in League 1 which considering how many big teams are there is nothing short of a miracle.

Maybe been there too long perhaps but he will be local.

He is odds on fav for the sunderland job.

I think my favs would be Hughes or Parky. Not sure about Roy Keane (miserable git)

OMA is definitely mentioning Gareth Ainsworth. In every post he makes.

But yeah would in many ways be a very good fit here, being local and all that. Not sure he'd be turning out for Woodley every week if he went up to Sunderland. I'm genuinely not sure he'd go. I think he may only be favourite as its confirmed that they want to speak to him

Gareth Ainsworth is a top coach with a track record of getting the best out of average players. He has done a remarkable job in recent years at Wycombe. I am just not sure he is the right man for right now. Had Gomes got us up to 10th place and moved on to a bigger club that would have been the time for Ainsworth to come, might be too much to ask to expect him to instantly get us out of a relegation battle.

Ainsworth is definitely an option - unfortunately I don't think he is the right manager at this point in time to come in mid-season.

Ranty McRantface Just throwing another random name in. Sol Campbell. Pulled off the great escape with Macclesfield who looked doomed for the National League. If you read his interview with the shit he had to cope with there he did an absolutely smashing job and certainly got the respect from the players.

Not saying he would be my number 1 choice but there is no harm in interviewing him to see what he could offer.

:| :| :| :| :|

The only way his name would be anywhere near it is so the BAME quota for management interviews is met.

He would be an awful appointment. A big name like Zola or Scholes who cannot hack it at management level.


Erm. I'm assuming you continued reading beyond Sol Campbell. Look at Macclesfields position on when he took over and then at the end of season. He pulled off a blinder. To compare him to Zola and Scholes who didn't even finish their respective campaigns is absolutely ridiculous. Yes, he's only had one job but that is one more than Stam had at a far more competitive level before we took a punt on him.
