What a time to be a Wednesday fan.

 

This is exactly the same kind of list that has been drawn up for every managerial appointment since DC took over. We are not an attractive proposition and we haven't been for a long time.

 

Carlos - Who?

Jos - Double who?

Bruce - Career at rock bottom after Villa and we still had to bend over backwards to accommodate him. People laughed at us.

Monk - Failed everywhere, created bad vibes all over the shop, fans of his past teams have nothing but bile for him and wished us luck.

Pulis - Another one on the wane who can't get Premier League work anymore. He must have been paid well to come here.

 

We have hardly been taking the choicest picks have we?

Bruce, Monk and Pulis were all favs.

Barton now evens..if he goes odds on, lump on 🙄


So were Poyet, Campbell, Cowley, Zola and I could go on. 
 

Under DC the time for worrying is when it’s announced.

Thats the worrying thing, we have got a load of fruitcakes running our club. 

I think you are wrong. We only have one fruitcake making the decisions 😂

Please tell me why we need a manager who knows the league? 

Did Pep, Klopp, Bielsa, Lampard, Gerrard and more know the leagues before they went to their respective clubs? 

If they are good tactitians, good at man management and in our case, MAD , then that's all the qualifications they need. 

 

In all seriousness I think Cook is the right man. Not sure about him dealing with Chansiri but that will apply to every manager. 

 

 

We're so weak that a manager will need every advantage at his disposal to beat the drop.

 

You're right, but the managers you cite went to relatively strong teams in their respective leagues.

 

Jos was a disaster, but we'd too much quality and firepower to go down.

 

If he were in charge of this current outfit we wouldn't have a chance.

Wouldn't touch Barton with 1000 bargepoles strapped together

Shocking thought even for this club

I reckon we are in the shyte because the two previous managers were too strong and experienced and knowing the league...didn't really help much.🙂

I've gotten that passive to the whole circus now I'm saying juet let Thompson stay on as caretaker till the end of the season. Just don't give him it permanently. 

 

History is littered with clubs that sacked managers put a caretaker in charge and avoided relegation certainty. Then they get the job permentant and last a few months before the sack the following season.

Relegated due to a 12 point deduction which was given through no fault of Cook. Even then he very nearly kept them up despite having one of smallest budgets in the division. 
 

I’ve seen a few people on here trot out the same line you did. It’s one of the most disingenuous arguments you’ll see on Owlstalk in recent times. 
 

But you know that already. 
 

I wouldn't mind him as manager if it was to be him. But the success he has had is at a level below what we are at and way below where we would expect him to ultimately take us.

If it wasn't for the points deduction they would have finished above us last season...you do know we're not Barca don't you. 🤣

The success he has had is all in the leagues below the championship is it not.

Just a thought. Why was Carlos successful in the early years. 

How did he deal with DC? 

Was he a yes man? 

Yes.lol

To be fair Barton has an impressive record:

 

6 months in prison for assault

4 month suspended sentence for ABH

18 month ban from football for FA betting breach

 

Not to mention his wider family !

I think finishing above us in the league on a shoestring budget, producing young players that have been sold on and playing an attacking brand of football is a success compared to the dross we've had to endure over the last 12 months

That's no guarantee to get us promoted though is it. Which is the task the new manager will be given long term.

He wouldn't be a bad appointment. But there are much better people our there with more experience and success at a higher level who I would go for first.

Doesn't matter who I want, any manager worth their salt won't touch us whilst Chansiri is here.

I agree to a point but the counter argument is Bruce did and Pulis (who a lot would consider in that category) did.

Actually the opposite is true. Get it right and you're a hero. If it doesn't work out, blame the chairman. No lose situation.
