Press conference called for 4pm

Recommended Posts

At least we have a manager. Must interview well, but can't say he would have been in my top 5. 

 

Trying to put a positive spin on it:

 

1. Ex Wednesday player

2. Not Tony Pulis

Do we think this investigation into the ground sale stopped the push for Cowley? The odds seemed to flip flop after this. Maybe Monk was a back up option (seen at the QPR match?) and maybe this stopped the Cowley move? Was the Cowley speculation just made up stuff? Was it Monk all along? What's his systems btw? 

 

no

That's just it though isin't it? He's just an 'ok' appointment. I do like the football he plays though and he did incredibly well at Brum.

No bout DC will say he's been first choice all along. Maybe this legal stuff he's been involved with (Monk) has slowed it down. But that won't get a mention.

Getting tempted by Cowley and ending up with Monk is like buying a fit bird drinks all night only to go home with her fat mate who’s tuppence stinks of Weetabix.

I haven't read all of this fred, but

 

Page one = 'Please not Monk' ... Skipped to page 18 and it's 'Gi Monk a chance FFS'

 

So I'm guessing it IS going to be Monk 

 

Kinda smells of the Van Aken transfer tbh

I supposed im a bit non plussed about this after the speculation with Cowley.

 

I'm not excited but im not thinking its a terrible appointment either.

 

Safe appointment as would have Rowett.

 

I'm glad its not Pulis.

 

Don't think he'll get as much time as Cowley would have got with the fans.

 

I still want playoffs this year and will be disappointed if we don't get them, but unless its a disaster i wont be calling for the manager, he gets two seasons for me!

 

Exactly this. I believe the Cowleys would have been given time by the fans to build something special. Something we could all have bought in to. Monk is such a flat disappointing appointment.

From Howson just now.

"Understand Garry Monk will be unveiled as Sheffield Wednesday's new manager at a press conference later today. Told he is meeting his new squad for the first time this afternoon. "

Sounds like my missus ( apart from the football bit ) 

I heard she was good with balls near her box.

It's a bit meh. But like all managerial appointments it can only be judged in hindsight. And if the EFL ban him because of dodgy dealings let's not start whining again.
