Which Manager to get in


Recommended Posts

Mandy was astute when he brought Dave Jones here.

 

Someone who'd managed at a much higher level, but whose stock had fallen in recent times.

 

As is the case with Alex Neil.

 

That's the profile of the replacement I'd like.

 

We all knew what Neil would do at Hillsborough, and he did it.

 

An experienced manager would have had the confidence to try something completely different, to throw Sunderland into confusion.

 

What scares me about keeping Moore is not just his tactical and defensive shortcomings, it's also the prospect of a hangover, as occurred with Carlos.

We have a good manager.  I'm sure he'll review the playing strengths of the squad for next season, after all we went so close this season, and it's a slight readjustment that's needed to go all the way

I didn’t realise that. Who is it? Maybe he’ll keep Moore on as coach then we are all happy!

I've got every faith in Moore next season. We've been brilliant for the second half of this one, once he found his formula and stopped tinkering so much. If we can keep hold of the majority of this squad and replace the outgoing players with youth, we'll get automatic next season

“Brilliant” for the second half of the season?
 

Some appalling results, some scraped wins, some scrappy draws and ultimate failure.

 

”Brilliant” is not a word I would have used.

“Disgusting comments”. What the fu*k are you on about. 
 

You reckon Wycombe, Gillingham, Crewe we’re “brilliant’ master classes?
 

Call my comments “over the top” or “exaggerations”, but “disgusting”.

 

Do me a favour, doesn’t come near “disgusting’. 
 

Keep it real pal.

Pulis would be as unsuited to this team as he was early last year.

 

IMO Monk under different circumstances would have been a good manager for us, say with Carlos' players, but unfortunately the team he had here wasn't really good enough for the brand of football he wanted to play.

 

But Monk was a good tactician.

 

I remember his coming with Leeds at the beginning of Carlos' second season.

 

He picked the biggest midfield I'd ever seen, and doubled up down the flanks.

 

He said in his press conference that he'd picked a midfield specially for us.

 

They triumphed 0-2, and were the first team to employ those tactics.

48 points in the second half of the season.

‘Some appalling results’

lol

 

 

True.

 

So what's the problem?

 

Well, with better defending we'd have been top two, so problems against the likes of Alex Neil or Gareth Sh*thouse-Ainsworth (pronounced "Shittus") wouldn't have mattered.

 

When teams let us play we're very good, when they don't we're bobbar.

 

Moore can't deal with those who close us down, which means we'll have to do better against the rest who don't stifle us.

 

If he's staying then that's the only solution.

 

I hope and pray we don't have a hangover next season.

 

If we don't, then we have a good chance IF he can sort the defending from set plays out, and we Row-Z it instead of pretending to be Franco Baresi or Paolo Maldini.

 

Attacking teams always concede more, obviously, but it's the type of needless goals we've let in which is the sickener.

 

It'd be worth bringing in a defensive coach.

”Brilliant” is not a word I would have used. 

We amassed 85 points with a squad made up of freebies and loans.

 

We spent large parts of the season without a recognised CB in the team. Name me another manager that would've done better with our injury crisis.

 

What more is there to say?

To say how many people are calling for his head I’ve not seen one decent suggestion from any of them on who could replace him. 
 

not even with a dedicated thread. 
 

one person even said we should replace him with nobody 😬🙄

This is because even the Tea Lady could do a better job
