Who *don't* you want?

Recommended Posts

I mean - who would be the man that would cause you to tattoo "Cluck was right!" on your arm, have you carve your season ticket up and destroy all your City weblinks from your favourites?

Personally I''d have to say Robson as tops. Warnock and Hoddle would be close behind...

Jim Duffy would just have cheap option, no ambition written all over it.

Another one of the favourites Dion Dublin would casue me mental distress, an influentiual player does not always make a good manager, he is too close to the current players and doesnt even have coaching experience..

I would also rather we did have somone with a management track record, after the Grant disaster i''d worry about assistant types and so Ian Crook and Mark bowen i wouldnt want, although the latter may be good to come into an assistant/coaching role.

Platt, Pearce, Waddle, Bassett, Souness, Roeder, Hoddle, Sammy Lee (if sacked by Bolton),Any untried ex player, Jim Duffy, Brian Hamilton, Ron Atkinson,

Any of the above options I would not be happy about.

Am I alone in being not too keen on Ian Crook? Yes he was a great player for City, but great players often don''t make great managers (Bryan Robson and Bobby Charlton are two good examples of this fact). We shouldn''t allow sentiment to cloud the issue.

Anyone bar Paul Jewell. I put Delia and MWJ top of my not wanted list as until they move on or reduce there holding nothing will change!I am getting seriously worried about the appointment due to the usual crap noises coning from the club. We are not going to hurry "why bloody not" A great candidate is available who will be a serious sign of intent "Jewell". There is a list of high calibre candidates "We heard that last time" None were high calibre. We are drawing up a list of requirements for a new manager "Can you work with crap players and no money to improve them" we have seen the results of there lists for years! Christ show some ambition for once and go all out for Jewell. I for one will accept nothing less, I just cant see this happening without a change at the top though!Step forward the Turners or Cullum!!

Robson, Roeder, and I hate to say it but either Crook or Bowen...Proven managers only please. Not sure about Royle, and am on the fence about Hoddle or Bruce.

You should already have "Cluck was right" tattood on your arse...

I said Smith was blatantly milking the publicity while you  lot were busy enjoying the Chelsea Kiddies Tea Party (you know the one where we nearly won 0-4)......

I said the ground was dead these days because of the carefully engineered middle class family groups who had infiltrated the stands.

I said last season that Earnshaw would leave as soon as he could get away.

I said Grant would stifle Huckerby''s flair by beating him down.

I said Ashton and Earnshaw (and more) were signed purely for quick profit....and not for success on the pitch.

I said Grant was a big gobbed loser as soon as I heard he was the new manager.

I said expect a bunch of Jock second raters to turn up as replacements for the few decent players who left.

I said the players Grant was bringing in were the donkeys and journeymen no-one else wanted.....

I said Shackell was a laughable choice for captain.

I said Brown was total crap and that the Czech basketball player wasn''t even up to League 2 standard.

I said the Bruilier flag would never be unfurled for more than five minutes at the end of a game.

I said Cureton was past it.

I said Grant had proved his mentality after Croft was subbed for "showboating" at Tamworth.

I said we wouldn''t see any of the transfer money recieved by the club out on the pitch.

I said the season ticket racket was a cynical scam based on false promises to manuipulate attendance figures.

I said Gunn would be a joke in any other role than a club bar "escort".

I said the kitchens were always the club priority under Smith...not the team.

I said that "nice Mr. Doncaster" was wildly spinning the facts in those "kind" email replies to supporters.

I''ve lots more if you want to hear them...but then that might make me appear a trifle smug mightn''t it?..........

Anybody inexperienced - we need a manager who knows what it is like to work on limited resources at this level and in this country.  While I idolised the likes of Crook and Bowen as a youngster, and Dion is a great pro now, none has the required experience for me.  Also, Hoddle, Keegan et al are not only wildly unrealistic but I dont think they can cut it on a limited budget and with players who are less technically gifted than in the Prem.

He got shot as a Binner - sorry, a traitor. I don''t think he actually called our brave boys "BRA WEARING NANCY BOY LONDON TYPE KNOWALL ARMY", but I''m sure he would have done if he''d thought of it. Although that does sound like something out of Monty Python''s Holy Grail - "Your father is a hamster and your mother smells of elderberries! I fart in your general direction".
