yes, the tears over Gomes are a bit pathetic. I know he was a nice guy, but very little justification to keep him on


He didn't f*cking fail! He wasn't given a chance to fail because the out of touch with reality 'instant success' brigade, and that includes the owners, pushed him out.

Gomes' record, giving the circumstances (inherited shit squad, low in morale and then hit FFP) wasn't that bad. He kept us up against the odds, got the fans back on side (now clearly undone by his sacking and the rumoured appointment of his little sh*t boss), and got us playing better, more attractive, football and to a point where things, given a bit of patience, would more than likely have clicked into place.



If Clement had had Martinez, Miazga, Ejaria and Baker he could have kept us up also. Not sure Gomes did that much of an amazing job.


Maybe Gomes didn't, but the Club need the fans onside and this appointment does the opposite - negativity before its even official. Hopefully he can prove everybody wrong but as many have said, the Championship needs an experienced pair of hands - he has never done this in his own right and if he is such a good no2, why has no other club taken the gamble on him?..............worrying times

Yeah, because Gomes’ record was great before he joined us!

Al these bitter fans that their hero Gomes has gone are pathetic. The bloke failed, simple as that. Give the new guy a chance FFS. Hate the self entitlement of our fans. He’s now going to be under pressure from day 1 which is just embarrassing

His record at all his other clubs where he's been let go within a similar timeframe? We aren't the anomaly here.

It's almost as if he comes in and makes you feel better about yourself that you have in ages but when you look at what he has actually acheived it isn't great but you choose to ignore that because you still want to feel happy - even if everything is falling down.

windermereROYAL Wasn`t Eddie Niedzwiecki an assistant here before?


Yes, and IIRC he also did a short spell as caretaker manager. I think he got sent off (sent to the stands) when he was in charge as Caretaker Manager.


Assistant manager under Porterfield I believe? Caretaker manager last few games of season before McGhee took over.

NewCorkSeth Wasnt Clarke rated highly as a coach? Doesnt guarentee being a good or even decent manager.


He had a credible spell in management at West Brom before we appointed him though


Done pretty well in Scotland too to be fair - cannot judge him re the national team, I don't think anyone could achieve anything with the players at their disposal.

Charlie Watts tweeted that he was a good bet at 25/1, after the Gomes sacking.
Definitely was planned

sandman Give him a chance.

If he puts on a nice suit and gives a few nice quotes about his "process" and says "my players" a few times I'm sure the twitterati will soon fall at his feet.


+1

Some people are easily pleased.

2 world wars, 1 world cup
paultheroyal With Bowen now at odds of 1/12 - that would tell you its a done deal. Nearest is Sherwood at 12s.

Tell you what, he must rate himself and got a magic wand because he has put himself under an enormous amount of pressure from the get go. Executioner turned manager rolled into one. Good luck with that.

Maybe he knows something, maybe he is that confident we are all in for a pleasant surprise.


If true, can't help being disappointed. But that's probably a good thing as I was equally disappointed with McGhee, Quinn/Gooding, McDermott, Pardew

Will have the continuity, knows the players. Will hopefully bring in a decent coaching team.

But yeah you're right, will be under significant pressure for sure.

Feel Bowen is a mistake.

Part of the set up that hasn't worked, under immediate pressure from perceptions of being involved in sacking Gomes and finding his replacement and no previous managerial experience. Not even been at the club long.

He doesn't fit any of what I want to see in a new manager, or move away from what I feel we've been doing wrong in our previous appointments.

hughsies no.1 IF it is Bowen, surely has to be down to FFP.

Also throws into question the Gomes sacking for me too, no secret that he was on a decent sum of money - obviously results didn't help his cause, but does make me think getting his salary off the books and appointing internally could make it a financial decision?

If Bowen does get the job, we obviously need to back him, regardless if we think it is the right appointment or not - perhaps an under-stated appointment may not be the worst thing?


Don’t think it’d be down to FFP to be honest. What I don’t understand is that if it’s Bowen, why didn’t they just announce it when Gomes was fired? Unless they thought they were getting someone else in and they turned them down

Don’t think it’s going to be anyone’s first choice, but may as well support them, whoever they are

No idea why Gomes would be one big wedge given his distinctly mediocre past.

Can see this succeeding given the levels of negativity. Still an odd choice and one I dont support but wtf do I know?

Just a thought....
Wasn't Bowen being hailed last season in the last few games with advising Gomes on tactical advice on opposition players?
Maybe in his role he couldn't influence Gomes on how teams would set up against his teams this season- really exposing Gomes' downfall.....

There's bound to be a thread about Bowen arriving.

I could probably make a few half decent recommendations to a manager. Doesn't make me a manager.
