On this managerial situation I have been thinking and what our great club needs is a young, hungry but most importantly proven manager who is now looking to move to the next level..

 

Benitez is neither of these things

We've got into a mentality of mediocrity. Need to aim higher.

True, did say that though. Looks older than he is though.

An appetite to succeed at the highest level, something they simply cannot do where they currently are. That is our trump card.

 

If you look around there are several top managers at much smaller clubs, playing in front of tiny crowds who must wonder what they could achieve with a sleeping giant club and fan base like Wednesday.

 

Outsiders might think it would be a step backwards for them but these top managers know you sometimes have to do that to take 2 steps forwards.

 

Give me any of....

 

  • Sean Dyce -  got Burnley up,  kept them up & then got them into Europe. Burnley fans want him out so he could be available soon. My number 1 choice - we could potentially be in the Champions League in 5 years, maybe less. 
  • David Wagner - got Huddersfield up and kept them up. In the play offs at Hillsborough he must have wished he was the manager of the other team with our passionate fans and depth of squad at the time.
  • Eddie Howe - got Bournemouth up and has kept them up. Almost an established Prem team now but he must be sick of managing in front of 7,000 fans each week.
  • Chris Houghton - got Brighton up and kept them up. Does't play the best football but he could do with more creative players and supporters who demand nothing less.
  • Rafa Benitiz - got Newcastle up and kept them up. Only a matter of time before the poo hits the fan up there. The only one I would question we could get because he's a bit older and more likely to move to a Watford or Everton.... unless he thinks he's got one more big job in him.

 

All the above have got teams out of the championship and then also kept them up but their personal projects must be coming to an end where they are now and they will be looking for a change soon and the lure of a big club like ours could persuade them.

 

Or we could just get Gary Megson.

Absolutely none of those names are going to leave comfortable premier league jobs to come and sort our mess out.

No. Deadly serious. In hindsight I probably shouldn't have put Rafa on the list (aim for the stars and all that!) and Newcastle are obviously not tiny in terms of stadium or fans but they are in terms of trophies - he'd have more chance of winning something with us. I reckon the other 4 are getable though.

Surely Guardiola is the man for the job. His career so far has consisted of walking into cushy jobs where winning trophies is guaranteed. If he actually wants to ever be taken seriously as a manager he needs to go to a struggling club lower down the pyramid and turn them around. 

That's not going to happen though is it. Ok Rafa might not happen I agree but I bet secretly Howe, Dyce, Wagner or Houghton would relish the chance to manage us instead of playing at their dinky little grounds.
