Throwing out names

Postby LoudmouthBFC » 09 Jan 2018, 19:57

Ok I'm bored and bored with the circus that is Barnet Football Club, and the whole is Mark McGhee staying or going. So just for shits and giggles, just going to make a poll see how it goes really. I heard that Martin Allen turned the job down. If Martin Allen has turned us down where does this leave us??? Who does really want to work with us right now ?

Unfortunately, I think we’re stuck with MM.

I've had a thumb through this website and it makes pretty depressing reading.
It would probably have to be an unemployed individual as we've seen the GW response.
Who on earth could we attract from another club?
Who would see Barnet FC as a step up who would actually have the skills we need?

As far as a currently unemployed manager is concerned, those on the website would be unlikely to take that much of a drop, not unless they want to really start from scratch and take on a huge challenge.
Would they want 'relegated from football league' on their CV? Because it almost certainly would be.
Saving us from almost certain relegation would be great on the CV but the risk might be too great.
They'll no doubt bide their time until a decent job opportunity arises.

I think you're right, MM is likely here for the rest of the season and all that entails!!

If Martin Allen has knocked them back, the whole Barnet FC brand has now become toxic. So MM it is, followed by more struggles and ultimately relegation. I admit I hoped for someone other than Mad Dog, but at least he was a creditable last resort. What's Graham Westley up to these days? That's how desperate things now are.

I can see a number of reasons why Allen would have turned it down, and in many ways don't blame him (if this is even what's happened)

I) his recent health issues
II) previous survival victories to defend. When you go back to things they are often never the same second or third time round. Maybe he just believes the magic his run out and he doesn't want a likely relegation to finish his cv

I’ve gone for other - Michael Nelson. The players and fans seem to respect him at least. Surely that’s a big part of being a football manager.
Every point’s a prisoner.

Every time we have had a player manager in a FL season we have been relegated - Phillips 93/4 , Cottee 00/01 & Davids 12/13 so probably not a good idea!

I've gone for other - Coco the clown!

Get all the players to wear those oversized shoes and honk a horn,couldn't be any worse could it.

On a more serious note, I hope Saturday brings some hope, as I don't have much at present.

Probably didn't put out strongest side, league the priority for them for sure.

I would have said Waddock, but it looks like he's not interested.

Can we tempt Barry Fry back from Peterborough?

93/4 - another season where we dropped many points in the last 10-15 mins of matches having been on parity or better for the first 75-80......
