Who shall we bring in to help Southgate out?

Robbo took us down so will Southgate without a bit of guidance.
(you can argue the toss about the 3 points but we should never have been down that end anyway)

Gibbo was fantastic in brining in Venables to guide Robbo when it was looking like we'd be going down again.

We need someone of pedigree to come in and help Southgate, and to give the whole thing a boost. Who that will be isn't an easy question, but I'd give El Tel another phone call.

So come on Gibbo, take a leaf out of your own book and do the right thing.

A couple of decent midfielders in January wouldn't go amiss.

nobody.

if southgate is not right for the job and needs help then get rid of him and bring in a PREMIERSHIP manager that can do the job.

sitheman:

Well yeah, but that's not going to happen is it? Gibbo is obviously a very loyal chairman, so I'm just trying put an opinion across that could fix the current difficulties we are in.

sammy lee would be a good move,he is no manager but still a good coach with bags of experience

It won't be pretty brining El Tel back, but he'll grind out the draws that will keep us up.

sitheman Posted on 29/10 10:59
re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate out?

but that wouldnt fix the situation we are in.
probs be the worst thing we could do for southgates career. look how long it took robbo to get the respect back after el tel was brought in.

the trouble southagte had is that the dressing room dont seem to respect him. how will brining in an assistant manager short term aid southgate long term?

it will be like students running rings around a soft teacher then behaving for a couple of lessons when the headmaster sits in their classes only to misbehave again when the headmaster leaves.

it will totally kill any respect the players currently have for southgate.

he has had over a year in the job, he has had the chance to get an experienced back room team in an he chose cooper and steve agnew. therefore if southgate is now not right for the job he should be sacked.

re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate out?

what i mean by that is their is not point bringing in an experience coach to help short term as long term the dressing room will run rings around southgate, he will have no control at all.

in my opinion it is a better option to bring in an experienced manager to take total control. a better short term and long term move for the club.

paul jewell would be my choice.

re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate out?

Fair point, but as we all know Southgate is a young rookie manager with plenty of time on his hands to learn and re-gain respect, so I'm not that worried about that.

We need someone who is going to keep players fit and available for selection. I doubt many managers would do any different with the current group of players at his disposal.

dibzzz Posted on 29/10 11:05
re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate out?

I agree with you to be honest, but do you think Gibbo will actually sack Southgate? I'd be surprised, so what can we do, bring an assitant in.

BTW, I'd love to see Jewell at the club as manager.

sitheman Posted on 29/10 11:06
re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate o

i think they would.

we havnt got a bad group of players i just think we need a fresh approach. i wouldnt do anything drastic yet but if we loose to spurs i would be thinking very hard about sacking him.

shame cos i really like southagte but he was the wrong man from day 1 but it hinkl he has performed better than i ever thought he would.

We can barely put a team out with nothing much on the bench. We went into the season with a painfully small squad and were always going to struggle with a few injuries.

Lee and Hutchinson finished the game at Old Trafford. Probably one of the weakest front pairings in the history of the PL.

Yep, just need Gibbo to be ruthless.

Give him help?

If he's not up to the job get shut.

re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate o

DIZZZ - For the one millionth time. GIBSON did NOT contact Venables. Robson choose to ring Venables and get some help. It was Robsons decision while Gibson sat there not even attempting to put the situation right.
Robson said in his autobiograghy that Gibson never even told him he was finished at Middlesbrough, Gibson didnt offically sack him.
Robson, said he felt let down by Gibson for not communicating with him during thse last dark days.
I repeat, ROBSON BROUGHT VENABLES IN - NOT GIBSON...

re: Who shall we bring in to help Southgate o

so why do you think gibson brought el tel in then ? To save the club.

Glenn hoddle could be a suprise name, cos we all need to pray !

Get a new manager and put Southgate back in defence, sorted.
