Mark Bowen

by Stjimmy » 14 Oct 2019 08:48

What are peoples views on him becoming the next Manager?

Personally i would be pretty pissed off. I see nothing in his resume to suggest he would be a good appointment and it does have a look of “I will get him out of the door and take the job myself” about it.

Not for me.......

Yep. Bowen probably likely to be caretaker if he hasn’t appointed himself full time this week for Preston I imagine

Tim Sherwood has been slashed from 40/1 to just 6/4 to become the next Reading manager!

WestYorksRoyal Interesting we've had as many managers in the last 6 years since SJM relinquished control than the 25 years after he appointed McGhee.

McGhee
Gooding/Quinn
Bullivant
Burns
Pardew
Coppell
Rodgers
McDermott

Vs

Adkins
Clarke
McDermott
Stam
Clement
Gomes
Bowen??

Very stark

Football is a very different game now, all it is.


Whats changed? I see a pitch, ball, lines, 22 men, referee and 2 assistants, dugout, manager, tweaked with the laws, but help me out here.

The pressures on managers to get instant result, the finances, the patience of supporters, the demands of players.

Anything else?

With Bowen now at odds of 1/12 - that would tell you its a done deal. Nearest is Sherwood at 12s.

Tell you what, he must rate himself and got a magic wand because he has put himself under an enormous amount of pressure from the get go. Executioner turned manager rolled into one. Good luck with that.

Maybe he knows something, maybe he is that confident we are all in for a pleasant surprise.

No, we will leave it on "The Team" page - if anything its "General Football" - but this will do.

And if you want to see 2 clubs of a similar size flourishing under stability, look at Bournemouth and Burnley. There's more money around in the Championship for sure, but the successful formula ultimately remains the same. Especially as our owners have the ability to compete in financial terms if they can just build the foundations and get the setup right.

Is this new? I remember both Pardew and Coppell were under pressure before they achieved what they did. Pardew when we were mid-table in early 01/02 and Coppell after we blew our good position in 04/05 and the loss against Plymouth. That pressure would have increased several times over if we'd started the season like this year.

What we had was a Chairman and hierarchy who were not only patient, but brave enough to hold their nerve when things didn't go well. Rather like Burnley keeping Dyche after relegation

If true, can't help being disappointed. But that's probably a good thing as I was equally disappointed with McGhee, Quinn/Gooding, McDermott, Pardew

Will have the continuity, knows the players. Will hopefully bring in a decent coaching team.

But yeah you're right, will be under significant pressure for sure.

This is the part about it I don't like. I would rather someone came in who didn't know the players and makea new assesment of them, some of them think they are still on holiday and haven't started the season yet. We needed someone like Gareth Ainsworth to come in and remotivate them and give them some belief. He is a proven excellent man manager.

IF it is Bowen, surely has to be down to FFP.

Also throws into question the Gomes sacking for me too, no secret that he was on a decent sum of money - obviously results didn't help his cause, but does make me think getting his salary off the books and appointing internally could make it a financial decision?

If Bowen does get the job, we obviously need to back him, regardless if we think it is the right appointment or not - perhaps an under-stated appointment may not be the worst thing?

You'd go for Ainsworth OMA?

I'm happy to give Bowen a chance. Certainly pressure will be on, but he must have seen things he thinks he can do a lot better than were being done before. Guessing he'll bring in his old coaching team so will have plenty of experience. A few of us did give him some credit for our improved displays after he joined the club last year, so there are signs he may be ok

Wonder who will take over as DOF?

Getting Gomes off the wage-bill and making an internal appointment - will certainly help the books!

Its a total stitch up Hound, its worrying. I won't be throwing my toys out of the pram just yet as Bowen hasn't even taken the reigns yet but the whole thing just doesn't sit right with me. I have this vision of him going to our owners with a powerpoint presentation of how he would do a better job than Gomes and them buying it, I don't really trust the owners judgement on footballing matters at all.
