I'd like us to take a punt on an up and coming manager in the lower leagues with a good play style, as we arent going to be able to attract anyone established IMO. don't really follow the lower leagues enough to name any names though. Bowyer maybe ? despite being relegated the fans seem to be happy with him, as he's been suffering under owners even worse than ours until recently
Charlton have a new owner that is backing him financially this season (Thomas Sandgaard). It will be a good test of what he can do with money behind him (despite the challenge of the salary cap that is in place in league one this year Charlton should be aiming for a return to the Championship).

Eddie Howe is as short at 5/2 to be the next Newcastle Manager and if you fancy a punt (on him or 3/1 Benitez) then I'd recommend taking a look at: https://betdonation.co.uk

It works in a similar way to the national lottery, where a percentage of bets go towards good causes (& you can select the charity that benefits) <ok>
A bet on Benitez would effectively be giving money to charity then, he is never coming back under ashley. There's more chance of them approaching me than him....

I think the top five names would be unrealistic appointments. I wouldn't want Lucian Favre, he's similar to Bruce in that he's a defensive manager that doesn't know what to do with the attacking talent available to him. Just obviously at s higher level. Marco Silva is one I hadn't thought of, but not exactly an Ashley appointment.
I always wonder how much Ashley even gets involved in managerial hirings. Sure he has to approve their paycheque, but I do think people overestimate how much he cares about their vocalness. He seems quite comfortable ignoring fans and managers, and saying no whenever he wants.

Silva wouldn't be a particularly inspiring choice. His record in England is average at best.

A few names of available managers/coaches from https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/trainer ... /statistik

Tuchel
Valverde
Sarri
Favre
Spalletti
Silva
Hughes
Sánchez Flores
Howe
Vieira
Pearson
Wagner


Not saying any of these would come here just posted this to give people an idea of who's available atm. More in the link <roll>
The irony is that we could bring in almost any of those names, but the club chooses to sell itself short time and time again.

I think Frank and Cooper would be good options, but as has been suggested wouldn't come now. We'd have to wait till the end of the season and if one or neither get promoted, then they could be interesting. We need shot or Bruce now though or we'll join them in the championship. Whether that means an interim until then to shake things up, or bringing someone in now I'm not sure.

It's going to be Mark Hughes though
With Charnleys' past record he'd probably go for Frank Cooper of marmalade fame!

Out of that list it will be Hughes or Pearson. Pearson I would almost accept as I think it would be a step up. Hughes wouldn't be though. We'd just go from overly defensive to outright dirty.

In theory, if they failed to come up and we stayed up then Bruce keeps his job.

Next three games are Villa (a), Leeds (h), Everton (a). Can't see many points coming in the away games. Leeds are in poor form but all that means is that we're the perfect team for an out of form team to play and they turn us over.
My point being I don't think he should keep his job, but there's not a lot available right now. Eddie Howe the obvious exception.

Like Frank at Brentford, would be a good option but unlikely they’d swap mid-season from a Championship title/promotion chase to a PL relegation battle.

The bloke at Swansea is only 6/1 in the betting
Cooper would be a good choice imo.
Likes to possession football and be brave in attack, have been on coaching courses with him too a really top bloke who knows his football.
At least we'd have a choice of keeping Woodman if he was manager will be a sad day when Darlow gets a contract extension and we lose Woodman because of it.

I feel like Hughes' come and get me thing in the media isn't unrelated. He's become the favourite in my eyes. Not my choice, mind. I'd take Pearson if he'd agree to an interim role, but I think he'd end up twatting Ashley. Which would be a bonus, but the latter party may not agree haha. Howe has to be the ideal choice, for me personally.

Silva, Sanchez Flores, Howe, Vieira, Pearson & Wagner would all be the most realistic ones.. but knowing us we'll end up with Hughes. <erk>

I do want a cultured foregin footballing manager like Wagner, Sanchez Flores or Silva. But it won't happen. <urgh>

Hughes or Pearson it is then..
