Never liked him since the day he claimed he would have been England captain for 10 years if he was white.Sorry Sol it wasn’t the colour of your skin it was the fact England had Tony Adams & Stuart Pearce around at that time.Much better players & deserved captains.

To say Adams and Pearce were “much better players” is very subjective to say the least.

Waffle, Warhurst, Bright, Bartman All Francis signings. I shan’t mention Woods

Im not suggesting Francis was anywhere near as good as Atkinson, but it’s a bit of a myth to say it was Atkinsons team when we got to two cup finals etc.

We both know I could name twice as many bad signing not to mention the one that got away! Signing waddle was hardly a master stroke

Too much of a risk and as others have said seems a bit strange personality wise.

We could easily find ourselves in the soup if we hired him.

I'm more worried about finding ourselves in something far worse!

Atherton was pretty solid  -some of the others were poo but Atkinson has signed some shockers over the years too. I'm not saying Tricky was better than Jooodas just that we have done OK with inexperienced managers in the past. I also don't think we are being linked with any managers with Joooodas's profile.

Yeah that's why Hughton was pretty much everyone's no.1 choice.

 

Coz we're a massive racists.

This a myth peddled by those who struggle to condemn racism.

What the hell are you on about? Claiming fake racism to get something or to use as an excuse is unacceptable. It’s not a card to be played when you don’t get your way. It also makes a mock of racism itself. Only a fool would condone it

Because he didn’t not get the captaincy because he was black . There have been several black captains for England . I have no time for any prejudice in any form. Equally , stupidity like this has no place either

Maybe Campbell was our mandatory BAME interview and impressed? 

 

I can't see what else he's done to deserve the job though 

 

We have a a lot positives we just need to continue, with a few tweaks.

So unless Chansiri can pull off a top quality appointment, I'd prefer we stick with the boot room (Bully) ...

Let's face it... we will never be happy. I would be a lot happier with Sol than I would with Bullen. Bullen will not take us up, and moreover, doesn't even want the job, yet all of a sudden we're clamouring for him.

 

There literally is nobody around that would satisfy some of our fans.

We've played 2 of the 3 favourites to go down and roll of a sudden Bullen is a master tactician? He is not the answer / he is a lazy answer.

I didn't say anything close to that. 

 

Neither are the likes of Campbell & Rowett though. Even Karanka is a one trick philosophical pony 

 

I'm not seeing any master tacticians linked with the job atm

I thought Campbell played in a generation after Pearce and Adams anyway. 

 

Maybe had had a crossover period

He could have the makings of a good manager. But Paul Ince did similarly

at Macclesfield. 

 

It would be high profile and an interesting appointment. But given some of the solid candidates available, if we are discounting experienced coaches with a lot to prove such as Rowett I don’t know why Campbell trumps that kind of candidate yet other than being a big name. The window is closed so he’s not going to get us a load of loan players like Lampard at derby either.

 

The main worry is he’s a bit eccentric and our chairman seems to have a touch of that too so not necessarily a good combo!

Where did you learn that he's arrogant and would drop us like a stone? 

 

Not even got the job and you have his exit interview already and waiting. 

 

That's the impression I get from listening to him speak in the media over the years. 

When taking the Macclesfield job, he seemed incredulous that he had to stoop to such a level. Now he's jumped ship when things are getting a bit tricky down there. 

I don't mind a bit of arrogance, but the likes of Mourinho (first time round) do it with a bit of charm and humour, whereas Sol seems to take himself very seriously
