And the writing's already on the wall, he is on his way out. Board unwilling to give aasurances & him wanting a budget he knows he's not gonna get.
So wot me wants to know is who ye think should replace him under the circumstances?
John Toshack? This candidate gets me vote as he is vastly experienced (Sociedad, Real Madrid, Wales) & is the last link to Shanks & the Boot Room. And just to dispel the myth, he has NEVER turned his back on us. When he was approached to fill Daglish's shoes, he had just signed fer Sociedad & was not about to break his contract. Me also feels that as former Kop hero, fans will be a bit more patient with him.
King Kenny? Revered demigod now back as club ambassador. Fan's no1 choice but by his own admission he has not kept up with the game fer the last 5 years. Do we really want to hand over the reins to someone who has not kept abreast of latest developments - tactically & personnel wise? Alan Curbishsley? Former Charlton Athletic manager who is INCREDIBLY out of work since since getting the sack at West Ham a few years back. Once an England manager prospect & even touted as Houllier's successor, could he be the man to restore our fortunes?
Odds on fave since taking Fulham to its first European final. Vastly experienced & tactically astute. Also seen as next England gaffer. But me will always remember him as the man who condemned Blackburn to relegation despite blowing a fortune on transfer fees. Most famously, paying a then high £7.5m fer Kevin Davies who couldn't score in the proverbial brothel.
Come back Souey? Ha ha ha!
ps: Foreign legion - Louis Van Gaal? Ottmar Hitzfeld? Paul le Guen?
pps: Alumni - Gary McAlister? Markus Babel? Sammy Lee?
pps: Ex-scummers - Steve McLaren after winning Dutch title with FC Twente? Mark Hughes? (Don't laugh, Yanks could do this just to fooking spite us!)
