Thread: Listened to a guy on the RW phone on saying that he wanted Flynn as manager. Astonishing.

    Re: Listened to a guy on the RW phone on saying that he wanted Flynn as manager. Astonishing.

    Anyone keen to have Derek Adams, Ian Evatt, Mark Bonner or Michael Duff as manager?
    They're the managers who got their teams promoted from League 2 last season whilst County lost in the play offs. Their teams aren't just down the road though.

    I’d be okay with Duff, Bonner’s done a very good job at Cambridge, Evatt is a manager whose career is on the up and Bolton are a club that have had to shed the delusions of grandeur that some of our fans have based on the attitude shown towards Flynn by them. I wouldn’t want Adams, but that’s because I don’t like him - he does have an impressive CV though.

    It’s a bit insulting to assume nobody from this area would know anything about Flynn if he hadn’t been managing the club a few miles down the road. What Flynn did to keep County in the Football League in 16/17 was extraordinary and made him a contender for manager of the season that year in my view. Since then, Newport’s cup record has been second to none in the lower divisions and Flynn has steered Newport into league finishes that historically you dont tend to see from sides from that city.

    I’ve got a short list of possible contenders for the City manager’s job who I definitely wouldn’t want here, Flynn isn’t on it.

    On the other forum, a few posters said they saw Flynn at yesterday’s game. If true, it makes you wonder why? Or maybe he just wanted to watch a game locally for him?

    I want a manager who can help us transition away from a low block + long ball, and who understands how to get the most out of the 3-4-3 formation.
    McCarthy is a very experienced manager, but he was doing bizarre things.

    Steve Morison has the players motivated, has changed our playing style dramatically already and with more time I believe we would get better and better at it.
    has turned around 2 games through substitutions, and was close to doing the same to the third.
    he's shown he understands the system with the U23s, and it looks as though promoting youth players is going to be a big part of our near future.

    I don't know enough about Mike Flynn to say whether he can tick those same boxes or not.

    Watching Arsenal v Watford on Sky this pm and seeing Ben White playing for The Gunners. He played 42 matches under Flynn on loan at Newport County.

    I would welcome Flynn, think he would do a good job for us.

    I guess you don't advocate the appointment of Morison then if that's your criteria.

    BTW, Dembe's comment wasn't THAT spunkworthy. Predictable.


    Here's to hoping it is Flynn, and that he takes us up to the PL. I will retire from the board if that happens. No gloating . nothing.

    The same 41 year old got them to the play off final with his goal in the semi final.

    Re the original post, Flynn has done extremely well on a small budget at Newport where his playing staff changed year on year due to that.

    He’s far from my first choice but he’s not deserving of this condemnation.

    Played long ball stuff that was worse as bad, if not worse, than anything seen at City for some of his time at Newport, but he did have the excuse of a truly awful pitch by modern standards to contend with. Last season Newport were regarded as passing side.

    He could take Wales to the world Cup final, I just don't want that type of football anymore.

    TOBW makes a great point about the pitch at Rodney Parade. It's owned by the WRU and shared with the rugby club. I mentioned Ben White in an earlier post and when he was playing, they did play long ball as his passing was very accurate. That season they used wing-backs too though played mainly down the left as David Pipe's legs had gone and he couldn't cross but was a seasoned defender.

    He's worked hard on set pieces and I've seen them score from some very innovative free kicks and corners. They also have very little money (I think the fans had funded a new deal for Labardie last season?).

    When they played Spurs they used gegenpress and were 1-0 up until Harry Kane nicked one on the far post unmarked in the final minutes to force a replay at Wembley.

    When they played Leeds, they matched them physically and clearly had a game plan which rattled them and they won. So he can mix it up depending on the opposition and conditions. I kinda like that. It's not something we've seen much of at CCFC in recent seasons.

    Anyway. I'm not championing any cause, I just think the discussion about him should be balanced and unemotional.
