Championship 2018-19

Recommended Posts

Jody Morris, there's a name I've not heard for years. On further reflection this could all go wrong. Not Owen Coyle levels of nonsense but it can be yet another manager in place this time next year.

Looks like failing to go up this year is going to be pretty brutal for Villa. Apparently they need to raise £45m through sales just to avoid sanctions. They've spent £150m in the last three seasons. Wage bill is horrific.

They could be in pretty bad shape next season.

That is football however surly you can have some empathy towards the Shrewsbury fans who have followed there club up and down the country for year after year avoiding relegation or mid table mediocrity for years then finally they have a season where everything gels and they have some belief and dare to dream about progress then one game they lose and the whole thing is ripped apart to be back at square one. It is football but them fans , proper fans have my sympathies. Hopefully they will do well next season and find decent replacements

I think they will be mid table and possibly playoffs depending who they appoint. Grayson would be decent. 

Do fans have sympathy for us over what we been through since the club was sold? Some do and some dont.

He is bringing Jody Morris with him who has won all round him with the Chelsea youth teams. They will bring some of them in I would imagine. 

Budget restraints and Lampards inexperience will be the deciders though. They haven't stuck with managers much in recent times. 

I think Lampard will do well there. Its good to see him taking on a Championship club instead of waiting for PL job like Shearer. Its very annoying he take a job when he had a chance. I remember him being interview after Hughes left and he was interested in Rovers job after Kean left. Didnt Kenny Dalglish recommend him to Shebby Singh?

I'm actually happy Shearer didn't come here then, would have ruined a magical legacy

What do you base Lampards prospects on chaddy may I ask? Think hes done well to get a chance so high in the pyramid based on very little. Very much an unknown quantity.

Lampard footballing experience and knowledge plus his worldwide contacts. Plus he has experience people Harry Redknapp around him. 

Lampard will aim high and try to get promotion this season despited the cutbacks..

So did Bobby Charlton (twice or thrice the player Lampard was),  Nobby Stiles, Geoff Hurst, Alan Ball, Brian Kidd etc etc. An international footballer does not always = great manager!

No wonder all the 'Grealish is worth at least 30 mil' news articles floating around - they are hawking him off to at least cover half that.

They have hit the ceiling after years of gambling on promotion. They have no choice now and it could damage them in the same way it has us - they will have to run as a normal championship club now.

Surely Shearer had footballing experience and 'worldwide contacts' - so are you basically saying Lampard will do well because of his uncle?

In that case - Jamie Redknapp should have gone into management - imagine how his dad could have helped him. Darren Ferguson has shown just how much a good manager as a father can help.

I think having the pick of city and Chelsea's kids will help. He's a very intelligent likeable person. He has an IQ of 157 so he's a smart lad. He has a wealth of football experience and will be respected from the off. I know he has no managerial experience and until he starts managing no one really knows how well he is going to do I just believe he will do well and has all the qualities to succeed.

No where did I say he would be great manager did I. 

Pep, Conte, Pochettino, Zidane, Ancoletti, have all had good footballing careers and managerial careers aswell. I agree with @Oldgregg86 comment below and I think he is 100% correct

They’re all foreign though. 2 of those were given teams which even Owen Coyle could succeed at.

It’d be nice to see a recently retired England international do well, but it just doesn’t happen. The last one which managed in this division was Stuart Pearce, and he was bloody awful.

Away from Championship, Neville, Barnes and others have failed. Even Gareth Southgate’s a failure in my eyes for his relegation at Boro. 

The only ex-England international I can think of as doing well in my life time is Steve Coppell.

No wonder people get angry with u chaddy. The gist of your post was Lampard would be successful just because of his playing career. I was just pointing out that this is not usually the case with ex England 'greats'.  In my lifetime only Jack Charlton has achieved as a manager (and even he admits he was a bit of a donkey footballing wise). So thanks but don' be so sanctimonious

Well firstly give him a proper chance before judging him and writing him off.

At Least Lampard has took a job instead of staying with the TV work.

Who has wrote him off? I hope he is successful as a manager but his playing career doesn't guarantee it as you seem to think it will!

No guarantees in any manager appointment

I think he’ll do ok there but I think a lot of it will be Jody Morris, with his tactical nouse and Lampards standing within the game to attract players in they should do ok.

As mentioned they’ll get the pick of the Chelsea loanees you’d think and you can build several squads on them!

Keegan "i Would bloody love it", was almost successful and probably should have been with that Newcastle side.

Bryan Robson another failure.

It really is difficult to think of any ex-England international to become a successful manager.

Ridiculous to call Bobby Robson a failure. He had his beloved Newcastle right up there. 5th IIRC and sacked! They embarrassed themselves with that one.
