Thread: Next Manager Odds Watch

    Re: Next Manager Odds Watch

    Surely Tan et al have to know McCarthy will not be a popular choice? And most likely not a good one.

    Personally, I’d be happy with Pulis, Jokanovic or Pearson (I would have said Bilic, but he’s just gone to China).

    However, an excellent combination would be Mark Hughes, with Bellamy as his assistant.

    Both have enormous respect for each other, from working together at Blackburn and Wales.

    Regardless what some think of Hughes, he has done very well at the smaller clubs he’s managed.

    Took Blackburn to a top six finish, Stoke to three ninth place Premier League finishes in a row, and kept up a Southampton side most had written off for relegation.

    Throw in his international experience with Wales and with them both being Welsh, dream ticket.

    They also both have the standing to command respect in the changing room, and to entice players to come here.

    Bellamy could learn the ropes off Hughes, and if and when the time was right, succeed him and Hughes move upstairs to become a Director of Football.

    Wasn’t that what was said about Warnock?

    Surely McCarthy ticks all the boxes? Heís available and would in all likelihood accept the job without having much money to spend, and plays a style of football that fits the philosophy of the club

    Don't think so, thought it was almost universally accepted we needed someone like him and would be good for us.

    Might be remembering wrong.

    Harris a lot of people weren't happy with.

    Well it all depends if you equate good management only in terms of trophies won. You only have to look at what's happened to Ipswich Town since Mick McCarthy left to realise that, with very little to spend in the transfer market, he did a very good job at that club.

    However, I'd be far from excited by a McCarthy appointment here. I'd like to think that under him it wouldn't be quite as bad as full on Warnockball, but I'm fairly sure the football would be attritional, set piece orientated and pretty grim - as was mentioned earlier in the thread, City fans have had to watch some right dross for nearly a decade now, can't we have someone who tries to play an attractive brand of football please?

    As I refuse to pay any newspaper's paywall charges, I've not read the Telegraph article - does it say that McCarthy would only be a short term appointment?
