Ryan Lowe is a young Rioch. Watch the video

I beg to differ 

Bruce Rioch played at the highest level in English football winning the league at Derby County 

Bruce learned his trade by playing under some top Managers -  Brian Clough Ron Saunders Billy Bingham  & Tommy Doherty etc 

He was also a decent Scottish International 

This Ryan Lowe is a non entity in footballing terms - what has he achieved ? 

There is no comparison

Hi Smithills gent 

Bolton fans going into BarrowWays to troll them is one of the most embarrassing things I've ever heard of. How small-time have we now become?

Given the current climate I think it would be fitting to give the job to Phil Brown he would be our first black manager 🖤

Different Alonso, a crap midfield player who iirc played in that utter shambles under Lee at Portsmouth where we had Nolan on the left wing. He didn't last long, i think Megson soon fucked him off.

Of course! Wasn't he the brother of the scouser? Sunday wine head has kicked in................................

I know someone like that, Keith Hill

I dont want to start a seperate debate on Hill...but his signings werent the problem were they?  Verlinden, Bridcutt, Buckley (could see the sense in that for Div 1), Crawford; Bunney and Delaney could yet be good, O'Grady a top pro, Chicksen and Emannuel better than expected, Murphy quality finishing, Hamilton good at times, can see the potential.  Of course there were some duds as well. Are we really expecting to find better signings for no money, whatever the recruitment system?  Some of these wouldnt have signed for us on in our predicament if they didnt know Hill or Flitcroft, its a fact of football life at this level, you need to have contacts.

Aye, but he didn’t know what to do with them after he signed them.

Clueless tactician.

No matter what trade you’re in, a good manager is someone who gets the best out of the resources at his disposal.

Hill clearly didn’t do that and then had a pop at the fans.

Fuck off.

Him, not you. 😁

Glad you clarified that!  Agree we need a manager that can organise a team, give them a plan and communicate it well enough for them to carry it out, like a Chris Wilder or Chris Hughton etc.  But its another string to their bow if they have contacts and influence.  We could have the best manager there is but he needs the players as well, I'm just not convinced the new system is the best way of achieving it.

Don’t know if anyone else feels this way now, but I actually don’t mind who it is that takes over.

Even though I’ve voted Sam Rickets, it could be as extreme as Sol Campbell, Neil Warnock, Nigel Clough or David Lee, they would all receive the same backing and support from me.

I’m trusting FV. Early doors it looked like they’d made a good decision with KH/DF and the combination of home grown roots and knowing the lower league market was paying off.

They’ve acted swiftly and correctly knowing this didn’t turn out right. I’m trusting now they will have either lined someone else up, or will ensure they put the right research in to get someone who fits their changed philosophy.

Don’t mind threads like this as long as they don’t get used for “I told you so’s”. “I never wanted him in the first place”
 
Let’s get behind them whatever decision they make.

I’m in two minds...get someone with experience (Clough, Bowyer). Safe pair of hands...happy but don’t excite me..

 

Bit  more of a risk (Lowe, Evatt). Could go tits up but it’d take like to see Evatt

I've watched it, and it was interesting, but I'm not sure it points greatly to a managerial genius in its own right.

I think his success at Bury and Plymouth say a lot more

Just been out for a walk and was mulling over the potential new manager.

Most of our successful managers have been tall, hear me out.....

Big fellas: Allardyce, Todd, Rioch, Ian Greaves .....

Relatively small and some midgets: Sammy Lee, Freedman, Lennon, McGovern....

So anyone over 5'11 will do for me 😁

So that rules out Lowe, Clough & Lee then, looks like Nigel Adkins is our next gaffer.

Just a quirky theory. On a personal note, Adkins wouldn't be to bad of an appointment.

Todd was exactly the same height as Lennon & Freedman, all of whom was shorter than Mcgovern & Coyle.

Lee at one extreme, and Allardyce at the other, I will give you, both on height & success as managers.

Todd only 5.9, always looked bigger.

I was stood next to Andy Todd in Asda Middlebrook the week after he'd knocked the fuck out of Collymore. I'm a shortarse but we were similar size. Remember thinking fair play, must be a proper hard bastard.
