Love it when something major happens at the club. New names popping up all over the place on the board.

Since promotion to the Prem in 2012, the new manager will be our 7th in less than 7 years. This is a shambLOLes.

NewCorkSeth Honestly I can't see the owners taking a punt on an untested manager. It'll be a "big name".


Jan Venegoor of Hesselink big enough name ?

Think bigger.

But they won't be the ones making the appointment. It'll be the new CEO; Howe, so hopefully as he knows this club inside and out, he'll be looking to appoint someone that will be best for the club.

I'm hoping this will rule out such perennial sackees (think I just made that word up!) such as Hughes, Bruce and Allardyce et al.

Can't say I've seen a lot of Wycombe games so couldn't comment on his style of play, but this is more along the lines of the kind of manager I'd like to bring in rather than the 'bigger names' touted around every time a championship manager leaves.

He has too much hair. It's a no from me.


But he does sing (and well!) in an INXS tribute band


He just moved to the top of the list

I think he struggle to leave Wycombe, big attachment there. You can never tear them apart.

Your kidding right? If this is true...then he ticks all the boxes in my book. Id take a punt on him.

Gareth Ainsworth lives locally as well. I was at behind him at a secondary school open day a year ago and his son also plays U12's locally as I saw him at a football tournament a couple of summers ago (U10's then).

As someone who coaches a boys football team, the idea of coaching the son of a football league manager terrifies me.....

End of the day they make the call though? If he suggests a name they don't agree with (and I can see them being cautious with this appointment) they can veto right?

How much knowledge of the English game do you think they have though? I've also not heard of many instances of the owners at a club appointing the new manager. I think the real worry is if Nani has any say...

But that's what I mean. They might feel that the decisions made for them in the appointments of Stam and Clement were poor and might insist on a manager better known or with more experience.

winchester_royal Plenty of good options out there, Jokanovic would be a good appointment but can't see him coming here, I like Warburton too and he's probably the most realistic of the bunch.

However wouldn't it be absolutely wonderful for us to go back to the 'Reading way' and get someone young and up'n'coming from the lower leagues. Two obvious options would be Nathan Jones (Luton) and Dan Cowley (Lincoln). Jones in particular has Luton playing some wonderful football and would certainly come in and make the squad his own. Might be difficult convincing him to leave a promotion chasing Luton, but it's time to show some ambition.

No. I've had my fill of young, inexperienced up and coming managers in Clarke, Stam and Clement.

The worst thing about getting a new manager in is that I’ve realised I really couldn’t give two fukks.

It used to be a big deal. Now it’s not.

Yes and no...

I'm suggesting they are conscious of their lack of knowledge and might feel they were led down the primrose path with the appointments of Stam and Clement.

I imagine they are fully capable of reading a cv and if the CEO was to come to them with a suggestion of a lower league up and comer they would have very right to say no. They have just tried and failed with 2 up and coming managers.
