Unfortunately unless we get someone like De Bruyne as player/manager then our midfield isn't good enough no matter who is in charge. Best we can hope for is a good run and a bit of optimism for next season. Then hand over to the recruitment team who might finally do something competent.We've seen with Forest last season that a good appointment at this stage could potentially have an unbelievable effect. Here's hoping we find our own Cooper type!
The wording does tend that Gibson is making a statement doesn’t it.Seems that the decision was riven by more than just results, although they have been poor for some time.
I really hope we manage to make a good appointment, but I fear we're going from the frying pan into the fire.
Well, while I was joking, he is an experienced coach and had been appointed a manager before the tragedy with his family so it's not as outlandish as it might sound. You can guarantee if results improve dramatically over next few weeks that Gibson will seriously consider it, he loves the idea of a rookie manager coming good. All his best appointments have been first time managers.Well, the players would probably run through brick walls for Leo, so it may not be all that bad.
Why shouldn't it? It was his first foray into the 2nd tier and he struggled. Do we want another manager cutting his teeth? I would rather we go for somebody with gravitas. Burnley did brilliantly to get Kompany and many poured scorn on that idea. We want fresh ideas and a new start and a name who can attract players to the North East the way Robbo did.Rob Edwards would be an excellent appointment IMO.
I think he's a very very good up and coming manager.
That Watford sacking should take nothing away from him.
