I seem to remember Sporting Lisbon will be playing in there cup final this weekend.

Therefore, could the mystery manager contender be Amroin? With us showing courtesy to SL pre match?

Agree0 Disagree0

Best thing Yom to wait until am announcement has been made, too much going and frying from the media.

The mystery manager is Big Sam. He has been in Turkey and has some work done including a facelift and bum enhancement, changed his name to Samuel Alleydes and now wants to be referred to as "Young Sam". You heard it here first.

I 100% agree. Sporting would not want that publicity before a cup final. Or that might just be me hoping it’s Amorim as I’m not a fan of the rest lol. I am warming to McKenna just wonder how he’d adapt to a team of bigger personalities. Massive step up from Ipswich, but I’m a fan of what he’s done there. Maresca and Frank are awful options IMO.

Love it Jimbo, lmao.
Good to keep a sense of humour when nobody outside of the big 3 at Blue Co has any idea what is actually planned.
Amorin at Sporting has said he is staying next year, one would hope he is true to his word otherwise he isn't worth having anyway. Many on here wanted TT, but, like Bill stated he played bloody boring football, there was something behind the seances that caused that exit, He won't be back, he's Man U bound.
People, some, love the fact that Mcennna trained under Pep, but Chelsea is not City, Chelsea want a "yes" man, unachievable at our level tbh, let's see where things head.

Kiwi, I agree with the majority of your post but just a. few piunts.

Arteta worked under pep and Arsenal aren’t City.

As an aside McKenna worked with Jose.

I hope the owners are not looking for a “yes man” because that wouldn’t be healthy in my opinion but I do hope that the new manager understands and agrees to his job description.

Its 100 % de zerbi.

24 May 2024 09:00:08
I think it's more like 0% Gianfranco.

24 May 2024 09:02:59
He’s going Milan I read somewhere.

Nice on Jimbo! The Big Sam riff cheered me up.

Yea man question? Seems to me that the appointee ultimately has to be a 'yes man', at least to a 'structure' devised by the Sporting Directors and in which they and the owners determine transfers and playing style based on stats and in which the appointee may have input but can easily be in a minority as to who has the final say on all of this. Though could work for someone with Ted Lasso-like ability in 'managing up' (ie owner/ s and SD/ s) as well as 'down' (ie the players) . But of course the fictional Ted Lasso initially knew nothing about football!

Many older managers likely to find not having more impact on decisions hard to swallow though given they are seeing the players on day to day basis and get best sense (or should do if any good) of their strengths and weaknesses and so the strengths and weaknesses of the squad as a whole. Poch was presumably in this category. Our loss I still think - and seemingly a big error by the club not to at least let him have the second season and get us Top 4 before looking for someone else! - while praying the new appointee will prove me wrong as any good CFC fan would.

One of the'senior players' at CFC, presumably Silva, cited as saying Poch was the best man manager he had ever played under. Seems that the players were genuinely devastated by news of his departure. Man management skill not easily calculated via stats yet clearly vital to gelling a squad and making them go the extra mile.

Yet chance of managing CFC still obviously a highly attractive option for many if petrhaps given structure especially younger and less experenced ones than Poch. And again one can only hope that whoever is chosen will dazzle us all with the resulkts achieved next season. We can only hope now.
