My sources tell me that Bruce had a big fallout with players after latest defeat, if they lose this weekend he is out. Bookies have cut him right down too if you look 

How about a straight swap.

Well personally I'm at a clear stage in life. As difficult as Coronvirus has been the 13 month break in football games has simplified things and offered a fresh perspective on football. If it had just

Established Championship club ✅ Recent history of Premier League football ✅ Squad packed with quality, including 2nd highest scorer in the league and a returning Dack ✅ No forced sales

Alex Neil -  Young manager sourced by Norwich from Hamilton - Takes them up via play offs beating their hated rivals along the way.  Can't stay up but then gets sacked when they are 8th in the Champ.

That would be Sam, they listened to the dark lord unfortunately, it's never recovered.

I hadn't even considered Sam really as he wasn't a Venkys choice they inherited him. But to your point, Mowbray isn't fit to lace Sam's boots, different league in every single way.

Yes he had falling out with one player who has since apologised for not passing on the instructions quick enough

I'll say it again. If Johnson deserves a crack managing Blackburn Rovers based upon his impressive time with the u23s then why isn't Billy Barr in the running?

Better question is, do either of them want to be next Rovers manager after Mowbray?.

Why wouldn't they?

Best gig in football at the minute.

I'd take a chance on anyone after this boring dinosaur bar Coyle. Pity we missed out of some good ones and the chicken chokers don't get rid of him and his mate Maggot until we stay up by the skin of our teeth at the end of the season. Thank you Vs. I say that every season

I think with Brexit getting an obscure European manager will be much more difficult in obtaining a work permit, so it will therefore have to be a British manager.

Also in regard to this recruiting unearthed gems from Europe through our new European scouting network is also going to be a challenge. I think really we need someone who knows lower leagues and can unearth gems from there as well as developing young talent through our youth system.

I think I would go for one of either Cowley's, Gareth Ainsworth or Mark Robins.

Good point. I am not sure which ones are living in the UK so avoided. If Wagner is living in the UK i would add him to my list as well.

Do I fuck. He's arguably not even the greatest manager we've had under Venkys, which is about as scathing a comment you could possibly make about a football manager. 

Was just having a laugh mate.

I fear his successor hasn't left school yet he'll be here that long. Couple of wins and new contract incoming.

Then the same old stuff for another 5 years.

I was actually referring to my post on the previous page regarding Di Matteo who I believe lives in Leamington Spa. 

Wagner I'm unsure of, but I'm sure there's one or two more currently residing over here.

Yeah 100% - but no chance he’d leave Braga to come here, especially as they’ve a chance of beating Porto and Benfica into the Champions League. 
Also can’t see Venkys paying compo for anyone these days if the time ever comes.

It'll only be England in a bit if a few either side get their way.

You can come to coach in England if you live elsewhere in the UK. If you come from outside the UK you may need a work permit. Hence here its being UK based that counts

Going foreign is the right move. Only British manager who I would be truly excited to see appointed would be Howe, but he will near certainly get a prem job. 

My dream appointment would be Jokanvic. Class manager on and off the field, had Fulham playing some of the best football the championship has ever seen. Has promotion experience with both Watford and Fulham. Major stumbling block will be his wages. 
 

Either way I find it promising that replacements are a least ‘supposedly’ being discussed.
