Who's your choice?

Post by White Duck » Tue Apr 02, 2019 8:15 pm

Lots of posts on here about who people DON'T want but who is your realistic first choice for manager and why?

Ainsworth for me: still a 'young' manager but has plenty of managerial experience for his age, including a few short stints in charge of us.
Has done a good job at Wycombe in Division One with a low budget and a small squad and has knowledge of lower league players which would help with future signings. Would see managing us as a step up and would get the backing of the supporters (who on the whole have been very patient with the previous manager during the current appalling run).

Another vote for Ainsworth - has earned the respect of fans, players and owners with his conduct as player and manager. As good a shout as any.

Sorry just cause we loved Ainsworth as a player doesn't mean he will be any good as a manager. Same applies to Derry, Hill, Barton and any other ex players doing the rounds.

I don't know why people like Sherwood are being touted around we can do better than that I'm sure.

No to Gareth. Legend but I've from what I've read plays worse hoofball than Pullis.

I'd go Bowyer from Charlton bringing back Steve Gallen with him. He's done really well at a skint club with a shit owner Interfearing so would fit right in. Plus he's out of contract in the summer.....

You mean guys like Lynch on Saturday.
Was an unacceptable performance from him in particular.

I think that is the big problem. Just who is out there that could come in, motivate the current squad, develop the youngsters and work within extra tight budgets?

I don't have a clue! The only name that comes to mind (and this isn't for sentimental reasons) is Holloway but that wont happen.

It might just be me but I can't see our squad wanting to play for the likes of Sherwood, Bowyer or Ainsworth. McLaren yes but I never got the impression that the first two made many friends in the game and Ainsworth never played at the highest level. Rangel, Cameron etc would be off like a shot probably.

I'd go for that. Because passion, innit.

Plus we played some great football under him until he was forced out

Any players who "don't want to play" for a manager because he's not their mate or didn't play at the highest level should be the first ones out the door. And good riddance.

Their style of play is obviously adapted to allow for the level of players he has at the moment.

And this thread is for naming managers you'd LIKE at the club, not for saying why you don't want certain managers!

When you list all the negatives of joining us ( I did it on another thread and trust me, there's plenty ) two things spring to mind

Who would want to inherit them?
Who is capable of working under such restrictions?

That tends to rule out younger managers ( not been there/done it ) and looks to perhaps lower league achievers...

Appleton springs to mind - and matey boy at Preston

Whatever Luton are doing we need to copy, If I were a Board Member I'd be going down there for the day and checking out their culture and strategy. Remember not so long ago they were a laughing stock - we've all been there / are there. Plus they've recruited 2 managers who have a template to work to and the 2nd one in is copying the first.

In a way QPR are the ideal club for almost any interested manager old/new, young/aged, whatever (unless they had already had a go previously).

a) If they fail then so what? Everyone fails at QPR, it's not an irredeemable blot on anyone's CV, but
b) if they succeed it'd be "they took the shambles that was QPR and just look at them now" (at which point they should probably take the first good offer they get before everything inevitably goes tits-up - this is still QPR after all!)

Warncock. Doubt he'll get sact at the Welch anyway. But if he does - bring him in. He'd sort these toe-rags out.
