New 1st Team coach

Recommended Posts

Anyone heard anything ?

someone posted on here that might be Alan Irvine ,

strange how he would leave as being a assistant manager to become a 1st team coach ??

or was that 2+2 = 5 just because he left blackburn the same day as holt left us ?

failed manager but good coach by the look of it

Lets just hope its not another Colin Calderwood we are getting

Irvine was Lambert''s assistant manager, so no surprise that when Lambert left and Coyle came in Irvine also left.

He''d be a good addition to the coaching staff and is highly rated - he''s seen to be particularly good in coaching young players.

News about what is happening can be quite slow this time of year, reporters don''t get the regular access to the players and staff they have during the season. Sure everything will become clear soon - especially with the first friendlies only a week and a bit away.

I heard that the club is so hard up they are going to save money by not having a coach and the players will drive themselves around.

Hi Willo. Happy new transfer window to you, I hope you will be sharing some of your great info with us as usual as moves get close.

Quick question is this little teaser something that we are trying to make happen ? or is it just a wind up.

Look forward to seeing some of our targets as soon as they are close to signing

Got nothing concrete at the minute, but did hear that Roy is always talking shop to Delia, think its common knowledge that he would of been our Manager at some point in the past if the timings would have been right.

Just chewing the fat with someone fairly well connected and thought this type of set up, maybe even with Roy as a Director of football would be a favourable structure to support Alex Neil.

Personally speaking, not a bad shout, think we all tend to have a higher opinion of the club that where we really are, and for us to land people of this ilk into our structure would be a positive.....

Tin Hat on.............

Putting 2 and 2 together but Gary Holt has advertised himself on LinkedIn - asking for anyone with a coaching role to get in touch. Seems to me like he was pushed rather than jumping to another imminent role.

Would further suggest to me that AN knows he needs to make backroom changes, hopefully his successor will be announced sooner rather than later.

Before anyone questions the legitimacy of his account on LinkedIn, he''s had conversations with McVeigh and Fleming on there so I''d assume its genuine.

i would have Ryan Giggs as manager

now i know he has less experience as a manager as AN

and i always go on abut we need a experienced manager

BUT if we are going young No experience i Think

Ryan Giggs is what we need

he would have far more knowledge and contacts in the game

won everything so huge respect from players

been with the best set up coaches manager and players

i know someone will point out Gary neville and how things went in spain

i just think Giggs has that class and authority we need

Never going to happen so i will shut up now !

I think that this is good news and probably something that we could have done with last year!

Good choice. AN is a good young manager but some experience needed around him, happy with this.

Every manager needs a good back room team, if you look at the years when sir Alex failed to win title an Man Utd it was normally a year when he lost his assistant
