Post  Nostalgic on Tue Nov 07, 2017 7:26 pm

Our search over the years for finding success whilst surviving has always been a risk, despite making some reasonable signings and changing managers when we seemed to be heading downwards. Many on here are from the "cuda/shuda/wuda school in their hindsight but I recall even loyal Syd despairing over the type of football MON was serving up during his period here.  We may have made a mistake there as we could have stabilised but been bored to death whilst not progressing. 

These managers have come and gone as they were perceived failures as we were heading down. Our problem is that we survived because Short fired those people and replaced them at times when we had enough time and games to survive hence the admiration for them. It took Sam six months and a few signings to finally get a team together. M'vila and Lens only turned decent performances in the last few games and we must ask if he would have paid the 8m for Mvila or give up signing N'Dong or Dilibodji - his choices that Moyes went along with.  M'vila bailed out which tells me he had no belly for the fight again.

The next manager will know our history and what is needed, so the choice is pretty narrow between a unknown one who is ambitious for a big club job, or one who has something to prove but is seen as a loser elsewhere.

Bring accountability in, sort out the AoL and we'll be fine in 3/4 years ready for the promotions needed. 
Until then nothing will ever change.

Spot on Kiwi we have to go with a full refit but, we need a manager who will stand up to the players, a manager who will be given full reign and more importantly the funds the do the job. Shorts idea of 6/7 th in the PL is a lot longer away than his estimates, in fact a longer off than most of our estimates, it’s looking like a long stint in the Championship assuming we stay in the Championship this season.

The question is are we taking our time to get the right man or are we finding that no one wants the job after hearing the deal and transfer budget?

Re: NEXT MANAGER POLL

Post  cyprussyd on Wed Nov 08, 2017 10:33 am

Sunderland remain hopeful of appointing a new manager before the crucial Championship clash with Millwall next week, with a short-term appointment a possibility. Martin Bain is assessing candidates as he searches for a boss with the experience and stature to improve Sunderland’s wretched record in the Championship this season and galvanise a club low on morale. Simon Grayson was appointed this summer in the hope that his experience of managing in the Football League would help stabilise the Black Cats, but his struggles could see a change of approach this time around, despite the likes of Paul Hurst and Nathan Jones of Shrewsbury and Luton Town being linked with the role. A short-term appointment, perhaps until the end of the current season, is a possibility with the Black Cats six points adrift of 20th in the table and in desperate need of an immediate uplift. Former Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka was installed as the bookmakers favourite for the role on Tuesday, and is thought to be open to talks over the vacant position. With little immediate prospect of investment in the playing squad, however, it remains to be seen whether the Spaniard could be convinced to take the job having turned down interest from Birmingham and Alaves in recent times. Other names strongly linked with the role are Ally McCoist, the former Rangers manager and Sunderland player who retains strong ties with the city and current chief executive, and former Manchester United man Phil Neville. Neville is thought to have turned down a role in David Moyes’ backroom staff as he seeks to pursue his own career in management, and told the BBC at the weekend: “I wonder whether it can get any lower than it is at the moment [at Sunderland]. The training ground is as good as any Premier League club. “It needs somebody to go in there, grab those young players, be a little bit aggressive and give them something. “The place needs lifting. There is no positivity. I think it is an attractive proposition. There are British coaches in the lower leagues who would jump at the opportunity to manage Sunderland.”

Aitor Karanka: Former Middlesbrough boss posts cryptic message amid Sunderland links

AITOR KARANKA may have just dropped a big hint that he's on his way to Sunderland.

Former Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka has hinted he's on his way up to Sunderland
The Spanish coach has been linked with a potential move to the Stadium of Light in the wake of Simon Grayson's departure.

And tonight he's fuelled the speculation by posting a cryptic message on his personal Twitter profile.

Karanka wrote: "Next stop… *thinking emoji*", alongside an image of himself looking at the departures boards at London's King's Cross station.

His tweet has led to suggestions he's heading to [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Sunderland with a view to filling the hotseat vacated by Grayson last week.

"There's a delayed train from King's Cross left at 21:08 and arrives in Newcastle for 00:41am could be that one? #SAFC" another responded.

One [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Middlesbrough supporter warned Karanka off heading to Wearside though, saying: "Don't do it. Your reputation is at stake."

And a Rangers fan called on him to head to Ibrox instead, saying: "Do not do it Aitor !!!!!!!! Please say it's Rangers."

Another Twitter user said: "Whoever it is they aren’t even flying him in, so it must be a skint club , if that narrows it down."

Yes it does, he still has a home in Harrogate, loves the area and is worth a few bob so he can be picky.

Sunderland’s search for a new manager is set to reach crunch point this weekend. Martin Bain took stock of the club’s situation following the departure of Simon Grayson 11 days ago. The chief executive has spent the latter part of this week assessing the credentials of applicants for the post, and is expected to begin a formal interview process over the next couple of days. Given the side’s position in the table and the financial restrictions the new manager would be expected to work under, a short-term appointment remains a possibility. French coach Franck Passi, who has held interim posts at Marseille and Lille and kept them in Ligue 1, is one of a number of names who have registered their interest in the vacant position. Aitor Karanka, Paul Heckingbottom and Ally McCoist remain the frontrunners for the post. Karanka would clearly require a longer contract and assurances about the scope for future investment in the squad, having spoken of his determination not to rush back into management after leaving Middlesbrough last March. Paul Heckingbottom has admirers after a stunning start to his managerial career with Barnsley, and an approach has been weighed up by the Sunderland hierarchy. Heckingbottom has a 12 month rolling contract at Oakwell but has spoken regularly of his happiness at managing his boyhood club. The Tykes currently sit eight places and nine points above the Black Cats in the Championship table and ran out 3-0 winners when the two sides met in August.

Paul Thirlwell is doing a canny job at Harrogate town. Has all he's coaching badges and more importantly he lurves us. Would prefer him to some of the others mentioned.



If the Rep of Ireland get knocked out methinks Keane will leave his post. Yes he will be back on Sky but what if, admittedly a long shot, that naming a new manager is taking so long cos ES is in the process of selling it to new owners who want Keane in?
