Ollies stock has always been quite high with the Wednesday. 

He was top of our pill when David Jones got the boot.

 

And that was before he started declaring his love for us!

 

Many of the others from that time have vanished from the scene though.

We really need to be as ambitious as possible with this appointment. The harder we need to work to get someone to join the more likely they are to want to do things on their own terms, i.e Transfers.

 

Some of the candidates on that list are going to be happy to come here and accept what they are given in terms of players, we can't have that.

 

He needs to be a strong character who can dictate who comes in and just as importantly is able to push DC to cut his losses on players that are not in his plans.

@Lord Snooty The Poll seems to be anonymous but, for the safety of OT members can you reveal the identity of the individual who voted for Pulis...... lol

Giovanni van Bronckhorst is a far off dream and would'nt be in the running IMO, Ian Holloway, love him or hate him has had enough chances at enough clubs, the only one for us is already in place.

Bully needs stay in coaching role n keep learning. Not sure he’s manager material tbh.

Can’t believe Bullen gets more votes than people like Cook, Cowley and Stendel. 3 managers that have got teams promoted and actually achieved something. Majority of people voting for Bullen are probably the same people that vote for Nuhiu as man of the match when he comes on for 2 minutes. lol

All that reflects is that Ollie, would have been a decent appointment a few years ago but he's done nothing for around 6 years, since he left Palace. We need to show more ambition than yesterday's men who were decent several years ago. The Championship can now attract high profile and decent managers. We should show some ambition and be more forward thinking or we'll be left behind.

Totally agree with these, we are in a good financial position and it's time we put an ambitious long term plan in place, GVB, Arteta, Jokanovic or Gary Neville.

We are a very attractive proposition for any manager so let's go out and get the right man and stop the banging on about the usual suspects.

Jos was a serial job hopper just like Carlos and Bruce. The only difference between them was Bruce was a winner as a player and was high profile because of his playing career, plus his 4 promotions over here. But in terms of managerial achievements, GVB is a cut above all three. He's actually won a major League title as a manager and managed in the Champions League. To even tar him and compare him with a nondescript no hoper like Jos just because of his nationality is disrespectful. When GVB is a completely another level to the likes of Jos, as a player and as a coach. In his short coaching career he's already achieved more than our other three appointments under DC can only dream of achieving as managers.

Well if we're considering Bullen, why not top ourselves completely and go for Nuhiu as player - manager?

 

Let's not cheat the hangman.

 

Young.

 

Hungry.

 

Knows the players.

 

Enthusiastic.

 

Something to prove.

 

Lol.

 

I mean, who cares if the man at the helm has any experience of management whatsoever?

 

And having got others promoted means nothing.

Exactly if numerous other clubs at our level over the years can be forward thinking and ambitious, then why can't we? Why, whenever we have a managerial vacancy do we just have to settle for one of the better out of work managers, that were good several years ago? Why can't we be the ones in the League to make a forward thinking or high profile appointment, that makes a statement to the rest of the League? They might seem like names out of reach but more high profile names are taking a chance to work in this division. A bit more ambition or forward thinking and we could take off as a club, otherwise we'll continue to be left behind.

Exactly, we need to be honest here, in terms of history, fanbase, history etc we are a top ten club within the country. We have been mismanaged for years, we finally get the owner we need and he has needed a few seasons to bed in but bed in he has and he is a managers dream, he will back them to the fullest with funds and time and any manager would be lucky to work under him.

We seriously need to identify a vision and stop just the short term back to the premiership mentality. There has to be a long term plan and a manager like GVB would be perfect to oversee it
