Ed01 if your about or anyone else for that matter. If Liverpool had to recruit a new manager say in the summer (I hope we don't by the way as I like Klopp) and it had to be an UK (British/ Irish) manager only! Who would you pick and why?

I am posting this based on a number of home based managers saying they don't get a look in so just interested in people's thoughts. I know Ed25 will have some thoughts given Unsworth at Everton with Dyche tipped as a potential.

Mine would be Lee Johnson or Gary Rowett. I must admit that it is based on small amounts of what I have seen with both managers but both doing well and Lee with a team that has been poor in previous seasons but spent less than most teams in that division pushing for promotion and playing good football.


{Ed001's Note - not Rowett, he makes Tony Pulis seem like Pep Guardiola in terms of quality of football. Lee Johnson was on the verge of the sack not so long ago, but he is an interesting shout. For me the likes of Dyche need to take the next step up first, somewhere like Stoke would be perfect for him and he would not struggle to improve on Hughes. Chris Hughton is a lovely bloke but his football is too defensive. Paul Clement is not a manager in a million years, so he would be out. I would have to go with the same person Ed002 suggested for Everton - Glenn Hoddle. Though it is mainly because there is so little in the way of genuine options.}

Agree0 Disagree3

There's not many when you think about it, I wouldn't want any personally, none are big enough for Liverpool and to say that is a shame, it's all foreign managers now, there's nobody here really to wow us.

Chris Wilder is doing a pretty decent job at Sheffield Utd.

I would be well pleased if hoddle were our new manager. I love klopp too. I think glen would win us that league.

Nice one Ed01 it infuriates me how so many claim hard done by yet haven't got a clue!

Thanks for the reply and providing such a fantastic site.

{Ed001's Note - you are very welcome mate but I should have mentioned Wilder! Mushroom4 makes a great shout there, he is working wonders and he would have to be the one you would take a chance on from the lower leagues.}

What’s the thinking on Eddie Howe?

{Ed001's Note - personally I do not rate him. He has had a much larger budget than the likes of Dyche, but has taken the team backwards. He struggles tactically and does not get the best out of his players plus they are so boring to watch. Passing for passing's sake is not good football to me.}

Very interesting thread however if any of the names mentioned became Liverpool manager this place and general fan base would probably combust. Would be interesting to see if someone like Hughton for example would be good enough to tweak his tactics if managing better players.
If we were looking for a manager would linders be under consideration at all he is clearly a highly rated coach.

{Ed001's Note - at the moment, no, but there is high hopes he will be in the future.}

I like Hoddle as I think his knowledge of the game is right up there. However, I think man management is as much a part of the game as almost anything these days. I'm not sure he has the charisma/ man management skills.

A complete dearth of options though.

Brendan Rodgers again.

I think Ljinders with time, may take over from Klopp (hopefully after a successful spell with us) as he is an integral part of his coaching staff esp. with bringing the young players through to the first team and knows our system inside out.

Man managementand charisma would mean very little if we were sat at the top of the league. He was the last true good England manager. He is a buddist and was stitched up by the media and I don't blame him for wanting out. People dislike him coz he is a Londoner but are happy to have a German manager. Priorities guys. I think he would have won something with England if he had the chance. He really was a brilliant manager.

With regards to Hoddle, don't mention his name in Wolverhampton as he was a complete disaster there. Whenever I mention his name in a positive way to my Wolves mates they tell me where to go!
