McClaren won’t take this job if Derby get promoted…he would need his head examined…and not just because Derby will spend some real money to bring in the right players to try to ensure they stay up…but also because their supporters have enough up-stairs to know that the game is only a vehicle now for the benefit of a worldwide TV audience, and not something dependent on any local feelings…stadium dimensions or historical significances going back many years.


...Any new head coach we get (providing it’s not Carver) will more than likely be someone relatively unknown (cheap) from the lower English/ French clubs hoping to make a name for himself and hoping the fans here with their overriding believe in their own importance to the club will let him…and praying that if he doesn’t make an immediate impression in terms of good results…then the Mag and it’s correspondents won’t crucify him…

Even if we do bring in a new manager the biggest issue is that Carver/Stone/Woodman etc have circa 5 years left on their contracts so either  a big payout (which Ashley wont do) or they stay on and carry on coaching the team which a new Manager potentially wont want to happen.

NUFC used to represent a great opportunity for a manager to step up and make a name for themselves, sadly though it was all too often a poison chalice.  With our current system, I think it will be a lot less appealing to anyone with ambition, dignity or a desire to have a hand on the transfers.  Instead, it will appeal to out of work, desperate ex managers who are willing to ingratiate themselves with the owner by spouting the company lines, won't mind lying to the fans and have no desire to do anything other than pick up a hefty pay check.

I suspect we could end up with a David O'Leary or Alan Curbishley.  The only hope is that we can grab a semi-decent manager from somewhere in europe who wants a step up into the premiership, is used to working with financial restraints and also is used to a coach role rather than manager...but then we risk losing them if they do well or being stuck with someone who isn't good enough we can't get rid of.

The problem for any new manager is that he is helping to manage a player trading operation not building a team. People often say that the Head Coach model is common on the continent but the crucial difference is that they are still trying to compete and be successful - we aren't. Our sole purpose is to maximise income while reducing costs
