Don't doubt Wilder did a good job getting them out of the Champ and surviving a year in the Prem but so did Wagner. Dubious transfer record to rivals Mowbray's with big money flops in Ramsdale, McBurnie and Brewster among others. Not to mention bizarrely giving Rodwell a good deal.

Wilder is superior to Wagner IMO. 

Wagner:

Borussia Dortmund II - 164 games (34.8% won)

Huddersfield Town - 154 games (33.1% won)

Schalke - 40 games (30% won)

Wilder:

Halifax - 312 games (38.5% won)

Oxford - 260 games (45% won)

Northampton - 126 games (48.4% won)

Sheffield United - 227 games (46.7% won)

 

Admittedly, Wagner has probably had the highest profile job at Schalke, but Wilder has a far superior win percentage and didn't just keep Sheffield United up in that first season, but took them to a 9th place finish. Considering Sheffield United's record this season, Wilders win percentage there is incredible.

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.

I'm slightly dubious as to whether he would come, but presumably he only turned us down last time with it being Sheffield United. Who else is out there currently looking for a manager? Time we made a vacancy available.

1) Wilder

 

2) Ismael

3) Cowley

That would be my shortlist and Wilder would be my first choice by a distance.

The chances of Venkys proactively making a move for a decent manager are slim to none im afraid.

They'll stick with Mowbray until the summer and then either appoint someone just as bad or just leave him place.

Them appointing someone like Wilder is fantasy land stuff.

Just think. Wilder and Knill in before the summer and a reasonable pot of money = massive optimism.

Mowbray and Venus here for another year = isn't worth thinking about.

Before the international break.

Wilder would be ideal.  English.  Knows this league. Good at wheeling and dealing. He would have free reign. Will it happen? Not a chance. He will get a good championship job. Get them promoted.  We will be stuck in this league under THAT clown

There will be one or two Championship clubs on the lookout now after he has become available. 

Probably means that some failing managers face the axe more quickly with a good option waiting in the wings.

Not here though. We just get to watch others benefit a la Cardiff and Middlesbrough

We should be all over this one. Wilder is quality. He is everything Mowbray isn’t. He’s brave, he operates without bullshit, he knows a defender when he sees one.....but there is one similarity...they’ve both been in a journey.....but, oops....Wilder’s was from league 2 to The premier league .... what his appointment would do for the town, for the turnstiles ....

Exactly that. Not a chance anyone at Rovers is seeing this as an opportunity.

Not when there's a training ground to develop...that's the only opportunity on the horizon in our boardroom

I've just looked through all the Premier League and Championship managers - and I'm not sure where else there is for Wilder to go.

I wonder if Allardyce will hang around at WBA if they get relegated - they might be an option.

You'd think Newcastle with their delusions of grandeur would expect someone more high profile.

Championship clubs - 13 of the 24 managers have been in a job less than a year. Mowbray must be the most at risk out of the rest.

I doubt he'll go abroad and he won't drop below the Championship. 

GET HIM IN!

Big fat no to Wagner, he is a bit mad.

I just momentarily hoped for a 5 nil drubbing tonight. Don't worry, it didn't last, because i know it wouldn't make the blindest bit of difference regards Mowbrays future.

The word is that he will get the Celtic job.

Sge is looking to move back into management.  Linked with Aberdeen.  Surely he would be a viable option. I know he did the dirty on us 24 years ago

He can have the job tomorrow, but with a clause saying no compo if sacked within 7 days of starting.

I'd sack him on the 6th and point out karma is real and revenge sweet 😂👍

Why would that be a good idea?  He's 73 and hasn't had what I would class as a proper management job in about 10 years. Prior to that his career was already stuttering for years. He basically hasn't been a good manager since the 1990s.

Might be a good fit for them, but I would be surprised if he got it. You would imagine Celtic could get a better candidate with their profile, money and constant European football
