Peter taylor i think they beat wigan in play off's then he went to leicester.

Taylor inherited a very good squad from Tony Pulis who had been headhunted earlier on that season (Stoke?). In fact Taylor's career by inlarge has been a fluke - took over W£bbs successful team at Southend (93-95), and later resigned after non-eventful 2 seasons, took over from Pulis after a few years out of league football at the beginning of the 99-00 season, after Pulis spent the previous two years acquiring half our first team, took the hot seat at Leicester after O'Neill built the club up, spent a fortune on players (Adi Akinbiyi etc) and was later sacked, inherited Adams' strong Brighton team and took them up and then resigned after he realised he couldn't spend any money, went to Hull and bought his way to successive promotions and is now screwing up Palace...

I think, at this moment in time, the media is getting its ideas from trawling through previous rumours and from the GPG! I'll wait until I hear something more substantial...

Does the vacancy promise anonminity to the applicants?
If not, once the selection panel has created a shortlist, why cant KD publish a list of applicants that have been told thanks and no thanks.
And after the shortlist has been knuckled down to the successful candidate, identify the others.
This would stop all stories about a stitch up before hand continuing after the announcemnent of the New Manager. it would also be a way of improving the communication between the club and ALL the fans, not just those that are close friends with the selection panel!!

Andy Hessenthaler wasn't good enough the last time he was interviewed so he shouldn't be considered this time either.

Lets wait until until we hear something more definite before spreading unfounded rumours.

I wouldn't exactly trust the judgement of the people that deemed him not good enough..... Let's not forget why we're in this situation!!

I think my general view of Hessenthaler which I have gleaned from speaking to a couple of Gills fans are that his best years at the club were when he had the team put together by someone else. When that started to break up and he had to put his own stamp on things, it went a bit Pete Tong.

I don't think he would be the worst appointment in the world, he's quite a feisty character, but unless there is a real shortage of decent candidates with a better track record he wouldn't be in my top 3.

....... on the off chance they get lucky and their speculative guess is appointed it makes them feel important and "the I know more than you" syndrome comes into play...

We have quite a few on the gpg who have this facet to their character as well!!!!!!!!!!!!

the trouble is that applicants who are presently in employment could find that terminated because of their application!

didn't that happen to a manager earlier this season - Taylor or someone similar!

The Thread title says "Who do you want"

Well my vote goes to Fitz, hopefully in the next few games he will do enough to turn our fortunes around and prove himself a worthy candidate.

I think Andy Sinton should be the next manager he served the club well is doing a great job at Fleet Town (with no Money) so he is the man for me

Apparently Aldershot are looking at him to replace Terry Brown. He's done well but I think the step from Ryman Division One to League One, which is five divisions by my reckoning, would be too much.

Agreed - the step 5 divisions and from part-time to full-time is a big ask. If he goes to Aldershot and does well then maybe in the few years he could be our man.

I'm sure Sinton will be top of the list by the time we're shouting "Hess out!"

Remember Paul Davis at Arsenal?

Then remember Paul Davis at Brentford.

I fear the same would happen if the Scots comb over came to us.

I hear what you're saying but I totally disagree.

I think if someone takes a gamble on George Graham, and I think it will probably have to be a League 1 or below club, they will reap the rewards. Obviously his money may be an issue because he's a greedy ba$tard but I think he might just be looking for a way back into football management and may be rich enough already to accept a low salary. He's a winner and developed several players at all the clubs he managed.

Paul Davis was different. He was coming to the end of his career as a player and was happy to just pick up his fat signing on fee and extortionate wages. Probably my least favourite Bee ever to be fair.

It seems clear tonight that although Leroy has helped to create many of the problems we have, they run deep. As expected by many, Cheltenham turned us over. Our next manager is going to have be massively experienced.

I stand by Ternent.

If we haven't any money for players then wouldn't Hessenthaler been an ideal boss and also help solve the midfield problem? We need an old head, leader in midfield quick.

Most teams pick up a bit after getting rid of their manager even if it is a 'dead cat bounce'. We can't even do this so I sadly conclude that it really doesn't matter who is the manager.

The players aren't up to it, we can't change them; this is what we get for the inept running of our club.

If hessenthaler is new boss i dont think he would be allowed to play four us until 1st jan.I could be wrong dont think he could register as player until jan window.He would be a lot better than any of our midfield players.

You're right.

I'm sure Paul Ince said he couldn't play for Macclesfield until Jan.

Yes your right yhe players are not up to the task,some of them should be ****ing ashamed of themselfs. Sadly they won't, they will just be happy to take the wage that they do not deserve. My hope is when their contracts expire they find themselfs looking for work. Whoever takes this task needs us fans to be with them. I'm fed up with being negative, stand together and try to help get us out of this mess. I thing the griffin park faithfull need to be bloody strong now, I was told to **** off to Fulham by some ****** on this board. Just as well I'm still at Gp to support my team . INNIT.

I'll go with Sweepy's avatar. We have to get someone in his is prepared to kick this club in to shape and not worry about who they upset along the way.

I think Ternent would be a possibility - are there any reasons why not?

Would he want to live down here?
Why did it go wrong at Gillingham?
Is he in good health?

The only way we have a semblance of surviving is up we have a manager who can get 7-8 of this squad out in January and get at least 5 in to replace them.

If the manager doesn't have the contacts or nous to do this there is no point appointing them.

Spot on.


Going off topic a bit, but was thinking about when Harry Redknapp returned to Pompey for the second time.

Alain Perrin left him with a real sh*te squad (for prem standards). Booed off the pitch at Gillingham from what I recall. Players "not fit to wear the shirt". And Redknapp was livid when he returned for his second spell that some of his original signings had been let go (i.e. Sheringham)

http://www.squarefootball.net/article/article.asp?aid=3046

Then I remembered Redknapp had a big chairmans wallet to spend. lol

They were still lucky to avoid the drop.

And he couldn't do anything to save Soton the year before following a sh*te appointment of Wigley.


Think it goes to show how important getting an appointment "right first time" is. And the damage poor managers can do to a club.


Reckon his son Jamie is gonna be a goodun for the future. In with Wise and Co ... and his daddy will always help him.

Scrap that for Brentford thinking about it. We would end up with his gobby mate Graeme Le Saux as his number two :nono:
