I hope the delay in appointing Santo isn't down the decision and role to give Big Dunc. let him go and manage at a lower level to prove himself and then return in the future if he is successful.

I agree on that, we cannot keep him if a new manager wants to bring his own assistant manager with him, too many ex players with jobs, maybe we need to start from fresh.

still talking with rafa?


{Ed025's Note - not sure to be honest rich..

1.) 15 Jun 2021 13:25:55
I’ve not spoken to him.

2.) 15 Jun 2021 14:58:17
I don’t want to speak to him.

3.) 15 Jun 2021 19:43:41
I never will.

Nah, the tight git skipped his round in the boozer last weekend.

Topham Hatt!

We talked a bit, we were talking about Everton and I said “Iwobi is decent, Holgate can still be good and Delph has been a good signing”.

He said “Alex Iwobi is rubbish, these are facts”, “Mason Holgate is too inconsistent, these are facts” and “Fabien Delph has been a disaster, once again I am talking about facts”.

Can't disagree with any of that Swan117.

I have spoken to Rafa a long time ago when my nephew was in Hospital and I give him loads of abuse (banter) and he took it and gave it back he even came back at the end to say goodbye. If it is him I don't think it will be a bad appointment we are a mid table team with a bloated mediocre squad and if we appoint someone like Conte he will run as soon as a more attractive team turns up.



10 Jun 2021 12:30:37
Ed's all these reports are causing my anxiety issues! . could you please give us the top 3 candidates in order that you think the board have.


{Ed002's Note - Nuno Espirito Santo is very clearly first choice and his agent has a huge influence over the owner. I would guess that Rafa Benitez would be seen as a very viable option. After that it becomes difficult with the likes of Potter who has a job and would probably not be interested, Ferguson who would be very high risk etc.. If they fail to agree a deal with Santo you can expect Benitez will be approached.}

1.) 10 Jun 2021 13:22:30
Ah that is disappointing news that ed, it seems like as a club, they have no idea what or who they want, Nuno, Rafa and Potter are totally different managers, none of whom are suitable for us. I will keep my fingers crosses for a miracle haha!

{Ed077's Note - I wouldn't say Nuno and Benitez are totally different managers.

2.) 10 Jun 2021 14:21:44
18 months ago fans would of walked over hot coals to snap up Nuno so baffles me how people can say he's not suitable as for Rafa he has a history of winning trophies at nearly every club he's been at and the only reason he might be deemed unsuitable is his links to them lot across the park which if I'm being honest I'm past caring about I just want a manager who will come in and improve us and getting us heading in the right direction which I think any of those two will do.

3.) 10 Jun 2021 14:34:14
I have to disagree with that mate, for too long we have played negative football, to the point where if we concede the first goal at home to Sheff United in the first 5 mins of the game, its already game over. In the same way, if we are 1-0 up with 25 mins left, we just start panicking and bringing more defenders on, something both Nuno and Rafa do when leading by 1 goal. No way would I have wanted Nuno even 18 months ago, Wolves success was more dowm to good player recruitment in my opinion.

4.) 10 Jun 2021 14:08:33
Yeah ed you are right there, they can both make a team solid, I was thinking more Rafa tends to go with a back 4, where as Nuno at Wolves went with a back 3 with wing backs. to be honest, we don't have the personnel to play either way so I suppose its irrelelvant at the minute!

{Ed077's Note - but their teams generally play a similarly strong defensive footy though was my point

5.) 10 Jun 2021 16:43:22
I think nuno would be an ok appointment if he didn’t want to take over the recruitment aspect of it as well.

Would make no sense to appoint him if he then has mendes doing our deals instead of Brands.

As others have said in here we need a manager to manage the players and let Brands do the recruitment.

This is the perfect opportunity to rebuild our identity and recruit players that suit the club and what we want to achieve rather than suit a particular manager.

Not sure of many other jobs were a manger is replaced and then they replace their workforce - the keys in the name manager - MANAGE.

6.) 11 Jun 2021 09:28:10
Even 18 months ago, I'd have wanted the board to swerve Nuno. Always thought him to be overrated, most of his success is down to a core of quality players. Problem being that most of those players are all on the books of the same agent, mendes. If he was that good a manager, Wolves would have moved the earth to get him to sign a new deal. From the outside looking in, they weren't too bothered that he was leaving.

I know what has been reported. but I got a feeling there are more twists and turns yet! 🤯.




16 Jun 2021 12:18:09
I feel it will still be Nuno, and all of a sudden SSN will report it. I feel the links to Rafa and Conte and the 30 other names are lazy journalism. People making links up for stories. the fact is very few people know what is actually happening, if the club have bombed Nuno I am sure he would have made a statement or the club would have?


1.) 16 Jun 2021 15:06:16
Really hope that you've called it wrong, Rich77! Nuno would be a disaster imo. But I do believe that it's the press that has been pushing his name from the start, this is an important process that needs to find the right man for the job. The board should be interviewing more than a couple of managers, if it takes another week then so be it. There won't be much movement player wise until after the Euro's so we won't be missing out on too many transfers.

2.) 16 Jun 2021 16:05:36
What is the Norwich Managers name, does anyone think he is an option. Look what he did with little money!



15 Jun 2021 15:20:14
Ed's . do you think this latest twist regarding Rafa is true, or a ploy to get santo to agree to the boards deal?


{Ed002's Note - I don’t know anything of it Rich.}



15 Jun 2021 12:06:02
Time is passing by. name the manger.




14 Jun 2021 14:16:20

No offence but conte is an elite manager use to working with elite players with elite funds! . I feel we are far from that and he wants to challenge for honours straight away not aiming for top 6 etc.

Ed. I know that your pick would be Rafa. do u think this is a genuine possibility or not.


{Ed025's Note - its a possibility rich, but an outside one i expect mate..
