BREAKING - DARREN MOORE APPOINTED AS NEW MANAGER


Recommended Posts

I never understand fans who are like “oooh not sure about him, he’s lost a few recently with Donny”

 

What manager has a 100% win ratio? 
 

They all seem to have around 35-45%

Our second BAME manager after Jos. 

Hopefully this becomes the norm just as on the playing side.

I hope any manager appointed will be done on merit not a label

Seems a solid, smart and forward thinking appointment. I'm happy with the appointment, as long as he's given time to implement a long term plan, it could be our best appointment in a long time. However, this is DC and Sheffield Wednesday, we never do anything sensible or long term. Good luck to him, he'll need it with our owner.

Welcome to S6 Darren.

 

I’ll make a prediction now that you’ll like it here and will do well.

 

All the best mate.

 

Ps - get your substitutions right and you’re already on a winner.

I’m very underwhelmed by this, not sure how you work out this is a positive appointment, donny are falling away and he’s got no real chance of keeping us up 

not overjoyed with excitement

They're 6th with two games in hand...I'd say that for Donny it's a good position going into the last dozen or so games

More often than not you always look for the positives with a new managerial appointment and hope that this is the one that finally clicks? Don’t know why but this feels like the right appointment at the right time and the one that will get us and Chansiri out of the cart long term whether we are relegated this season or not?

I hope so mate

But there's the Chairman in the mix still and his whacky ways

“My ambition at the start of the season was to score 100 goals. When I left, we had 70 and there were still games left to play. I’m not saying we would have got the 100, but it outlines what the mentality was. The only way you do that is by playing open, expansive, attacking football”

 

He’ll do for me

That's right - don't forget to bring two on when we go 2-0 down!!

Fair enough but who were you expecting us to get in our state? I think he did quite well at West Brom and Doncaster, seems to be attack minded and seems to get results, whilst playing decent enough football.

 

A lot of us seemed to want Paul Cook, myself included, some of us would say they would've been underwhelmed by his appointment but we're a badly run club on the way to League One after embargoes and a points deduction.

 

Cook, I think would've been a good fit for us in our position but Moore is younger, his teams play similar and he's got a decent enough record. It could be a smart appointment if it's a long term appointment?

Ridiculous appointment. Nothing against the guy personally, but what has DC seen in his career so far to suggest that he can handle this job Believe me, this will end in tears, and quickly

 

Well despite not being able to keep West Brom up, he took over a team that had lost 8 Premier League games in a row and picked up 11 points from his first 6 games in management. He then took them to 4th place in the Championship next season before they sacked him in a panic and failed to get promoted. 

He had a good season at Donny last season and was improving on that this season, to have them in the play-off places in that division is good work. 

 

I'm happy with this appointment. We should have acted much sooner but I am glad we have finally acted and also glad it is not some predictable past it out of work manager with links to our advisors. 

 

Lets get behind him.

Its a solid and sensible appointment.

 

Good luck to him.

 

He needs to be given the tools to do the job and the authority to 'really' be in charge of team selection and recruitment.
