Was just about to post that my dream choices would be 

 

Rodgers

Fonseca

Tuchel

Henry 

Arteta

 

But there’s a big fat zero chance any of those would happen 

 

Well Chansiri does want a big name! 

Imagine if one of those got appointed there would be a lot of messy trousers amongst Wednesday fans

 

WTF:

Don’t get the Heckingbottom

thing at all. Only two years in management - yes the first 12 months excellent but the second 12 months pretty dire. What a massive gamble that would be.

 

For me it depends what we’re looking for as a club - if the objective is promotion asap then I’d say McCarthy, Pulis, Pearson or Karanka. If it’s a brief of exciting attacking football with younger hungrier players then I’d be looking at Cook or Smith.

 

Having said all that I think we’ll probably end up with another foreigner I’ve never heard of!

This season done in all reality give bullen till end season and build from there people like Paul Cook are not fashionable or tested maybe when we getting out league 1  but really do t think that type manger lead us to promise land but other side of coin I have no idea who would. I would love jankovic spelt wrong but Fulham manager but get impression won't leave the big smoke

Love the folk knocking Hecky. He’d be the IDEAL manager for you. Attacking football, doesn’t take any shiiit. 

 

However, there’s no chance he’d leave us for you. And there’s a billion reasons why. 

 

 

Paul Clement. 

Paul Lambert.

Dean Smith.

Gary Megson. 

Steve McLaren. 

 

One of those would massively improve you.

Ranieri

We need a dose of realism. Ranieri? Cmon now. It’s like the bloke at Shakhtar, he’s managing in the champions league for crying out loud. The temptation to come to Sheffield and manage the likes of Wallace and jones may be too strong to resist

If people want to chuck out names like Paul Cook, who for me is a million miles away from being what we need, then I may as well add another who’s probably not quite what it needs (at the moment) 

 

Kevin Nolan.

 

A name that will go a lot further in his career than Notts County - Where at the moment he’s doing a brilliant job. 

 

I’m told he’s created a brilliant working environment between himself, his staff and the players. Most likely because he’s still young to understand the mindset of the modern day player.

 

If Cook, Hurst and Heckingbottom are to be serious contenders then Nolan must surely be given the same consideration?

Karanka is the safe bet and probably the least worst of the usual suspects. Could be disastrous however. The problem is this is not a short term appointment and I think as a fanbase we're at our wits end and won't tolerate another brand of side-ways-backwards bobbar-scared turgid testicles for more than a month or so before the knives will be out again.

 

This takes us back to the beginning of Carlos' reign, namely what's most important - style or promotion?

 

Our objectives were confused, so we ended up with the wrong players for pragmatism.

 

For me it's promotion which matters, and the style doesn't necessarily come with it.

 

How many non-parachute teams have played their way out of late?

 

It's Karanka for me, but they'd better get him in before the window opens because there'll be some wheeling and dealing to do, starting with the back line.

I think this thread shows the need for us to have a clear plan of where we go next. So many people’s list is contradictory they have to old fashioned long ball managers and three younger possession based managers for example. 

 

We we need to decide if we’re looking for a short term fix to try and get us as far up the table this season as possible. Therefore your five might be: Pulis, Megson, McCarthy, Pearson, Lambert. 

 

Or or do we want to go back to an attractive style and set a style of play for the club in the future and appointment managers who will deliver that like Southampton have done and Swansea did in the past. Therefore your five might be: Hurst, Monk, Poyet, Laudrup, Bergkamp. 

 

Not it really sure you can have a mix of both.

1.Tuchel ( I can but dream )

2.Fonseca ( Surely not going to happen)

3.Ancelotti (like Tuchel out of work )

4.Laudrup (probably more likely than the above)

5.Brendan Rodgers ( does have Us in his blood)

 

More realistic targets
1 Dean Smith

2 Martin O'Neil
3 Michael O'Niel
4 Ronald Koeman
5 Frank de Boer

 

I could probably pick another 20 or more before i started to consider
1 Karanka

True ... but if we get our thieving hands on that £150 million prize money, who cares? Maybe then ticket prices will fall.

 

They say that Pulis is 'Boro bound.

 

Gibson wants another pragmatist in charge to emulate Aitor Eyebrows.

 

I seem to remember Fulham going on all-out attack, then they lost to Reading.
