Which manager would be a good fit for BFC?
 
When T McP goes, whenever that may be, who would be a good fit as our next manager? Scholes has shown ex players arent always the right fit and so, Ollie aside, whod be a good fit for us?

Had Rowett come in rather than Riga, I actually wonder how much of what has happened since would have actually happened?

Actually Scholes has not proved anything.
He resigned on a principal, too much interference from above.
To me that's good.

The manager is important, but the whole football management set up more so. I'd like to see a DoF. And I still think Macca has made a mistake in the No 2, who should have been an experienced wise old head in the Parkes mould.

Joey Barton - stood up and criticised the oysters (and was sued for it) when no-one else would.

Also had another pop before our game with Fleetwood last year.

Top man, if i ever see him I'm buying him a pint.

McPhillips.

He has never had a pre-season as a manager. Never had proper training facilities. No real budget. No proper pitch to play on. and yet he has a team on the verge of the play-offs. I could go on.

I think he deserves the respect of the fans and a chance to prove himself on a level playing field.

One Ian Evatt.
Making a reasonable fist of it at Barrow.
Brings in Charlie Adam as 1st team player/coach.

Evo seems to be doing very well at Barrow, after steadying a doomed ship at Chesterfield. Good at PR too. Certainly the best of our crop of recent heroes

Another one for Evatt.

Hes served his apprenticeship at Barrow and Chesterfield but at Barrow hes put together a pretty decent team there now id fully expect them to be pushing for promotion next season,

Evatt has Tangerine blood and was a supporter of our
cause during NAPM.

We could do a lot lot worse.

An unproven famous player.

Gerrard has failed miserably at Rangers and is sort of local.

Steven Gerrard's Blackpool?

Terry Mac deserves a proper chance . However, should be go certainly not Gary Rosette. He is very likely to jump ship at the first chance he'd get. Have a friend who's a Brum fan, very unpopular there

In all seriousness I would keep Terry McPhillips. I like what I've heard in his interviews. His management style can only get better with time and a better squad.

He has something. He's made a silk purse out of a sows ear so far. [^]

Evett,please God give me strength. Is that the height of our ambition. Decent player, but experienced,innovative intelligent, no. Local bookies would be happy.

The Seasiders had him in Gary Bowyer.

Shy,retiring but with a great football knowledge and capable of managing at any level anywhere.

A complete antithesis to the senior civil service for example.

No its not the height of our ambition we would all love the likes of Pep or Klopp buts its a realistic one for a league one club could even be a league 2 club come next season.

I agree that we need a Tony Parkes figure, but as the head of a properly funded and organised scouting network. In that context I think that Parkes was the best signing Grayson ever made at Blackpool.

Kurtis

I know your pal MAC is no Fred Housego when it comes to all football matters but to be fair to the great man I think that his comments re Gerrard were made with his fishing rod in his hands.

MAC is fully aware that Gerrard is in the process of restoring natural order in Scottish football and re-establishing Rangers - the 54 times league champion - as the top team in Scotland.

I think we need to be careful what we wish for. What we should want (in my opinion) is a club based on firm foundations, not a plaything for some random businessperson to wine and dine people with football in the background who hires and fires fading celebrity managers for an ego trip.

So, if we end up with a consortium of business people willing to work with the trust/supporters bodies then it's unlikely we'll be competing with the top 20/30 clubs financially.

Therefore we need a model of being a club with strong community links, a great atmosphere, a good scouting network. The kind of place where the best rejects from the academies want to go, where kids go because they'll get a chance.

We need to play decent football, but have a structure below that that is integrated well.

I'd give McPhillips plenty of time. The lad has had his hands tied behind his back. We've got a cobbled together side and an awful, awful pitch and some portakabins for a training ground.

If he didn't do it, I'd love someone like Paul Hurst who was a miracle worker at Shrewsbury and seemed to walk into a horrible job at Ipswich where he was asked dismantle a championship team and then keep them up with league 1/2 players.

One thing I think KO DID get right* was to generally give managers time. Had he sacked Macca (cos we were awful for a bit under him) we'd never have had the 3 cardiff wins. Grayson could easily have been potted early on as well and look where we ended up. To be fair, the flipside was Worthington, Hendry, the cavalcade of comedy managers clibing out of the collapsing clown car that came after Ollie left being 'given time' but I think the point is still valid.

I hate the modern clamouring for constant change. I'm not yet 40 but it seems like managers used to get about 2 years to do their job and put their ideas across but now it's about 3 months. I think it completely undermines any sort of long term thinking and ideas, makes it almost impossible to actually coach a team to be better than the sum of the parts and unless we get bought by some random Dubai based billionaire we're almost certainly going to have to be that sort of side.

*I know, sorry.

I am not sure how the dynamic between Ian Evatt (manager) and Charlie Adam (1st team coach) would work. After all, in the 2010-11 season, wasn't Adam the captain most of the time? However, I suppose one would always bet on Evatt if it came to fisticuffs.

TMcP deserves his chance under proper owners.
But if in the long term that does not work out, and for 99% of managers that means the sack, then surely the model we should be striving for is an Eddie Howe type character? Youngish, enthusiastic, intelligent, eye for a player and can develop them, and seems to spend his transfer budget well.
