Its an ideal/tricky job come the summer. Given all the players leaving its either looked at as a clean slate and time to bring fresh blood in OR wee with the willy you've got (favourite Souness quote) and perhaps rely on our youngsters.

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.

Mowbray will be going nowhere unless he decides to in which case it will be confusion and then take the easiest and cheapest option which will mean either promotion from within or a desperado looking for a job.

As much as I'd like to believe there's concern and review taking place in India I just don't.

The Barnsley manager is flavour of the month at the moment so no surprises Nixon is pushing him as the model we'd want to replicate.

Might need a board before then as the people running Barnsley know what they are doing.

Thanks for sharing Matty. 

With Mowbray admitting that he only speaks to Pasha and not directly to the owners does this mean that they have decide to sack him when they got a replacement line up like Bowyer/Lambert situation. I also wonder if they will to bring in sporting director/head coach. Also if they will replace Waggott shortly if they looking to get rid of Mowbray aswell. I can't see Venkys being happy about this season and after backing Mowbray financially for the past 3 seasons they have decide a change in approach is needed.

I think we need to use players like Buckley, Rankin-Costello, Dolan more next season and be more involved in any new manager plans. 

I would let most of the out of contract players go tbh now. Would keep Rothwell, Nyambe and Rankin-Costello.

I think if Tony goes, Waggot goes too. Nothing to back that up, just my opinion. Let's hope there's some truth to it.

Possible Foriegn options

Bruno Lage, former number 2 at Sheffield Wednesday under Carvalhl and managed Benfica until last summer., 

Julien Stephan, former manager at Rennes. 

Could we attract the current Reading head coach Veljko Panuovic? 

Dan Petrescu

He'd be an improvement over what we've got at the moment, that's for sure. My issue is - has he been found out at Sheff Utd and that's his only way of playing ? I'm impressed by the way he's kept them plugging away although they were dead and buried by Xmas and their squad is pretty poor.

Mowbray should have had this kind of kick up the arse months ago, then we might have seen a bit more of the urgency and tempo there was yesterday.

Because it's rarely evident in his normal tactics.

Perhaps. They've had appalling luck with injuries to defenders too, and their back three have been so important to their success. I think the next club who get Wilder will have got themselves a good manager, although I wonder if after such a torrid year he might need a bit of a break.

 

If Mowbray does go, I'm happy enough that we're looking outside Britain for the right option, although I hope there's more thought gone into it than 'Barnsley & Reading are doing well with foreign managers, therefore we'll go foreign too. I know it didn't end particularly well at Huddersfield, but with the squad we have I think we could do plenty worse than David Wagner.

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. 

Would be a great appointment and would really put a marker down to show we actually have some ambition for a change.

Which is exactly why it will never happen under Venkys.

Is he?

From what I have read over the last few days it appears a change is going to happen there.

losing Egan and O'Connell havent help him plus losing Dean Henderson plus Brewster signing hasn't work out. 

Wilder plays that system cos its suits the playing squad there and he built. Did he play that way at Northampton or Oxford tho?
