Seriously at the time of Mcleish going thoughts went straight to the next man.
Well actually they went straight to my thoughts at the end of the Bolton game. We have the first self publicist and desperate man to put his name forward. A name who will get some fans wet and weak at the knees of, a man who has failed for the past number of years – Claudio Ranieri.
Tonight on Sky Sports he has put himself forward and like with Rafa (wonder why no one else will touch him) and some have said Di Matteo (failed at West Brom and Chelsea like under grant managing themselves), keep well clear. We do not need these charlatans and self publicists. We need the next manager, who will be the most vital in many years to build the whole club up. Randy gets the next manager wrong and we are down, lets not beat around the bush there.
Where we are now is perfect for some managers. after Mcleish the new man will get plenty of time and support to build. Lets not underestimate the scale of this job. We will need a major refreshing of the squad and this means the manager has to be given time, NO QUICK FIXES.
You know who I want in Martinez and Lambert and both are young enough to give us 3/4 years of rebuilding that we need.
