Managerial Merry Go Round 22/23


Recommended Posts

De Zerbi earned a decent reputation with Sassuolo, keeping them in Serie A but playing some very good football and knocking over some top teams in the process. Then he moved to Shakhtar Donetsk and Champions League football. Left them last year after the Russians invaded. He was in the frame for the Milan job when Gattuso got binned and has been touted as a future Italy manager. 

Be interesting to see how he gets on in the Prem as he liked to play on the front foot and attack from the off. He may find that doesn't quite work over here.

In all fairness Ty, I'm surprised it worked in Serie A

Is Phil Collins aware?

@Tylluancould he...

Apart from his stint at Huddersfield his managerial record says no. 

Sacked after 8 games, sacked after 15 games, walks out on Huddersfield, sacked after 11 games. At Huddersfield he inherited a decent set up and things fell into place as the Leeds wannabes bought into it. But they over achieved. 

But his record as an assistant is outstanding and he's had Guardiola's endorsement on more than one occasion. 

He reminds me of Paul Clement

I read something yesterday which suggests he's a manager of extremes in his comments too, so, it's either all brilliant or all a disaster. There were quite a few Udders fans online who wouldn't have him back, and after the season they had too, which speaks very loud.

If Warne jumps then he'll take Barker and Hammy with him, as he can't work without them. They're his emotional crutch as much as they are his coaching team. The families go on holiday together. That would leave Rosenior with nowhere to go at Derby, coaching wise.

The only way that trio would get broken up is if Stewart persuaded Barker to become Rotherham's manager.

Looks like Warne to Derby is done. Pains me to say it, but it’s a great appointment.

Agreed but no guarantees he’ll get them firing straight away. A lot will depend on their existing fitness level, big part of his success that 

Was it you who said he’d never leave Rotherham for anyone but Norwich especially after past mental battles? In fact, it might have been @Tylluan?

It might have been KM who mentioned Norwich but I also thought he wouldn't leave Rotherham for a club where the pressure might be greater. 

At Rotherham the only pressure he had was the one he brought upon his self. Now he's possibly moving to a club where there'll be fan expectations, based on his previous promotions. There'll be owner pressure, as they've brought him in to get promoted this season. Then there'll be the pressure he puts on himself to get results

Yep. Local journos are all saying it’s a done deal.

I wonder if their fans will meltdown now and call him all names under the sun?

Looking at Twitter the vitriol seems to be aimed at Tony Stewart for not giving him billions to spend. 

Deluded fuckwits. Without him and his business model they'd be watching Parkgate or Maltby, apart from those who'd have joined the love in at the Sty

But that’s the way of the ‘modern’ football fan mate. Everyone wants everything now, and screw the consequences.

I think it’s a good appointment for Derby and a categoric disaster for Rotherham. It would be a similar story for Wycombe if Ainsworth went too.

Both Rotherham and Wycombe are middling League One clubs at best, but have had managers who have managed to get the maximum from a tiny budget. Those types of managers come along once every blue moon.

Funnily enough Ainsworth is reported as being in the frame for the Rotherham job, along with Steve Schumacher at Plymouth (who's also up for the Huddersfield job)

Be good to have Wycombe destabilised a bit if the rumours are true.

Be interesting to see what football style Warne implements at Derby
