Replacement for Hughes


Recommended Posts

It’s pretty obvious Mark Hughes can’t go on so the big question is who would you like and who you would hate at our club.

 

Ideal option

(1) Rodgers - Would be good for us and knows this league.

(2) Big Sam - Wins matches and will breed confidence back to the fans and players.

 

Worst option

(1) David Moyes - Hate his football and he is so dull to listen too.

(2) O’Neill - Has been and a massive backward step.

 

 

ideal option: probaby Jokanovic of tose who might actually come

 

Worst option: Big Sam

Big Sam will have the same effect as Hughes, old style football old style training nothing will change, Everton fans wanted him out within a month.

We need someone who can change our style, bring back the high fitness levels which Poch brought in ( which now seems to be the norm in every other premier league club apart from us), bring back attacking pressing football which in turn brings in good results.

Rodger Smichit would be my choice as he plays similar type to Poch.

The flip side to that is that by the end of the season, Spurs always fade away. We did the same thing in 2014. Kane was done at the World Cup.

 

No the ‘flip side’ is still successful. The ‘Alternative’ is relegation and fading after 30mins from the first game to the last....

A couple of years ago you would have laughed at the thought of Big Sam but now if it was a straight choice between him and leaving it as it is I would probably take it. Very sad state of affairs but at least he would get the defence into shape and know what is needed to stay up.

Despite his difficulties in the past, Nigel Pearson is a no nonsense manager who can get the best out of average players.

Having moved to Belgium to manage a second tier side I doubt he would want to return to the premiership ( let alone Southampton ),

but he is the type of manager this club needs right now. My other choice would be David Moyes, who is better than his record indicates.

Alex Ferguson knew a thing or two about football management, and it was he who chose DM to succeed him at Utd.

We are in a scrap for survival, and need somebody with experience of the situation.

 

One thing is certain Mark Hughes has to go.

That's what people said before Lemina definitely left us in the last transfer window.

 

Hilarious. Also, Rodgers is a fraud. Keep dreaming though. Ps those other players came to us when we weren't a shell

You have read my post saying I don't think he'll leave Celtic before the summer, haven't you?

 

Good luck next transfer window x

No, but I have now. And it’s quite brilliant.

I don't know whether you follow European football but Pearson's team are currently in the bottom 3 of the Belgian Second Division. A Premier League club, even one in the bottom 3, should be able to attract the best manager from the Belgian top flight, Philippe Clement, rather than one of the worst ones in their 2nd tier, like Pearson. We really should be looking at managers whose careers are in the ascendant, not those in decline. It was that approach of getting a manager who was sacked from his last Premier League job because he was failing, just because he was a well-known Premier League face, that brought us Hughes. Even the most successful of managers, like Mourinho, when they've been sacked from their last Premier League job because of poor results are best avoided as Man United are currently discovering.

 

Our whole recruitment of players and managers recently has been dull and unimaginative, which is why the usual list of suspects is being trotted out now.

If we all keep saying Brendan Rodgers enough does that somehow make it possible that he would want to give up winning the league in Scotland for an against all odds relegation battle with us?

 

By against all odds...you mean win a few games with a very expensive squad in a bottom half full of dross.

Just hope the club aren't aiming as low as you lot this time. So bleak. Yeah we've been poor but we're still in the premier league and the only job going. If a newly promoted club can get Ranieri then we can get someone half decent.

 

Some of the names people keep mentioning are a complete joke. Mentioning Allardyce and Steve Bruce should be infractionable offences.

I'm all aboard the Peter Bosz train. Make it happen please.

 

Why?

 

I don't know enough about him other than he did well at Ajax (but who wouldn't ? and with an exciting squad of youngsters that had been brought through before he went there), but failed at Dortmund.

 

He could be great for us, but interested in why you consider him the answer.

He probably isn’t. Frank de Boer did rather well at Ajax.

Ranieri is nothing special. Fat Sam is a much better manager.

People keep saying, 'But who would actually appoint the manager?' But..who appointed McMenemy, Ball, Hoddle, Strachan?. Have we always had someone other than the Chairmen whose job it was to appoint managers?

 

At this rate of turnover we're soon going to need a full-time manager appointer.

Probably true. If our aim is to stay in the Premier League this season and beyond, then Allardyce is the best candidate.

 

But is that all people care about? I'm actually not that bothered which league we're in. I'd like us to play decent football (that doesn't necessarily mean possession football btw) and win some games, and if we were doing that in the Championship I'd be fine with it.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I want us to be relegated. But I have no desire for us to replace Hughes with a manager of similar ilk or with someone who simply grinds out results by playing turgid football and cynical tactics. Because it's only a matter of time before we're all here again complaining and wanting somebody new.

I completely agree with the sentiment. I don't care what division we are in if it's enjoyable. However, Championship with Kat, Ralph, Goa and Wee Ross will be a complete meltdown.

Problem is his tactics is possession based, I can't see our current players play it, they are not that good. He used the youth alot at Ajax which i like but it all went wrong at Dortmund. He kept the pressing that Klopp and Tuchel introduced but maybe he doesn't know how to fully prepare his players for that style. I personally would rather have a manager who knows the pressing style and can teach the players it rather than being forced to play it without any idea how it works. I have mixed feelings with Bosz but is probably a better option than Hughes or Big Sam who alot of fans strangely want.

Fair - I've just looked in the other Hughes related thread where Chez says that relegation will be a financial disaster for us. I don't want us to do a Sunderland, I think relegation from the Championship was the worst season I can remember as a Saints fan! But equally the idea that we should all be desperate to stay in the league for financial reasons is what's wrong with football and Saints at the moment...

Whoever we appoint, please just give him a contract to the end of the season. Not a 3 year contract that will make us pay a severance fee within 18 months. If the new manager does well, give him a rolling contract.

 

That would significantly reduce the number of people interested in the job.

I could see us appointing Jokanovic to be honest. Seems he has been on our radar in the past, he left Fulham in a decent way with a lot of appreciation from their fans.

 

And of course he's available, don't think we need to be paying any more remuneration/compensation for the time being!:lol:

 

I'd still like to see Sparky turn it around but our form and general approach is screaming relegation. Deep down he must know he's on borrowed time given the results under his stewardship so far.

Perhaps he should do the honourable thing and resign, he must know the warning signs when the fan base turn on you, he's had it before at QPR, & Stoke. But of course he won't he'll want his £££.

unfortunately football doesn't work like that...

 

a 3 year contract offers a safety net for any prospective manager and equally we are in desperation mode pretty much with terrible form and no Director of Football.

that said, I'd offer a 3 year contract- but offer really high incentive based rewards- maybe something like a £4-4.5m per year contract, going up to £7m for a top 10 and £10m for the year for any sort of Cup Win/European Position... wonder if anyone would accept that? tempt Jardim ;)

 

4.5m per year works out at around 87k a week- we don't offer that much to any of our players do we?

 

but again- suppose my above is just wishful thinking

He has just Tweeted that we need Adkins back...

 

It’s a good job he has no input then as that would be a terrible appointment.

 

Adkins has had his time, he done very well but much of that was down to the squad he had.
