if it was Bullen - who would be his assistant?


Recommended Posts

Why do we need  DOF, just had the best transfer window for yrs ,so scouting and recruiting is good which was set up by Bruce, Academy the best we've had ever,if Bullen is given the job he needs to recruit a couple of coaches and decide the roles they take,him and DC will already have a good working relationship and trust each other, so why bring a middle man in to potentially rock the boat.

I'm pretty sure Bruce covered manager like your old school manager and did this himself too.

 

Now, does Bullen need this?  Who knows.   I think you only go for this position if your club decides it's the route they want to go down.   Managers have to be on board with it, and who is more important, manager or DOF?   Arguably you appoint a DOF for longer term than you expect a manager to be in position.

If the thinking is that the curent team is doing well, it would make sense to appoint them, and fill in behind Thompson at junior level.

 

There's an argument that it's to early to be confident in a move like that. 

 

For me, waiting and seeing for now remains the most sensible option. Tell the current team they're in charge until further notice and play it by ear.

I personally wouldn't give it him full time just yet based on results so far. It appears we have a bit of time on our hands so I'd like to see how he handles a bad result or two. Hope he has the answers but in the past when he's had bad results a new manager has come in whether that be Luhukay or Bruce so we haven't seen him under too much pressure yet.

Yeah, I agree, hang on and see what happens, and what the reaction is when we haven't won the first two games, and instead lost a couple

 

(but we're aiming to lose none!)

Don’t forget how Bullen feels in all this. Kept in the job until he slips up. I don’t think he’d accept the possibility of that. Something will have to happen sooner rather than later re a decision

I think that’s reasonable. Maybe they could agree a deadline of eg the first international break.

I keep spouting the DOF route myself. Not sure who would fit the bill but there must be somebody out there. Many clubs even at Championship level are going down this route.

If we were to go down the DoF route then I’d like to see Brian Laws in the role. He still clearly has an affection for the club and has bans of experience and great connections.

Gray would be a good solid assistant.

Two possible ex players I've mentioned elsewhere.

Miguel Llera and

Reda Johnson.

I think Llera has coaching badges and has worked for the club in a coaching capacity before.

Reda.....not sure about coaching badges but Reda is Reda. Inspirational motivator if one was needed.

 

Do you not think we should maybe set our standards a little higher than this? If that’s what his CV consists of then his application should be laughed all the way to the waste bin really. No offence to the guy.

You are right sonny. It's just both are ex players with a passion and determination and were well liked by all fans. 

It was a bit of a not too serious comment.

Coughlan is at Southend now as manager. I think he still has ties to Sheffield as I've seen him in town a couple of times in the last 12 months or so, I've spoken to him aswell in the past since he left Wednesday and he still holds the club in high regard, he was also in attendance at a friends funeral ( Steve Fairbank) along with Paul Sturrock. 

Why has nobody mentioned Sturrock. I know his health issues have prevented him managing but as an assistant or adviser he'd be a great shout surely?
