Young English Managers

Recommended Posts

When Tony Pulis, Mark Hughes, Alan Pardew, Steve McClaren, David Moyes... etc are involved in a musical chairs rotation of the same clubs, who are the clubs overlooking for jobs before employing the same old faces? Can the people of Talk Football 365 identify the next manager to go onto bigger things and have chairmen up and down the country wondering how they overlooked them to appoint yet another 60-year-old journeyman manager and wondering why things never change?

Will Paul Hurst continue his rise up through the leagues, will Danny Crowley follow closely behind, and what club will take a chance on bringing Graham Potter back to England? Looking at Sunderland as an example, they have a great chance to rebuild and take someone with some huge potential to take them forward or do they go for the odd tried and tested (and mediocre),

Who would be a great nomination for the next job to come along?

Chris Wilder and Lee Johnson seem to be the pick of the list at this very minute. If they'll be successful out of their preferred clubs however remains to be seen.

Dean Smith seems to progressing well though Walsall and then Brentford. It's almost impossible for them to pass the longetivity test now with the average life expectancy of a manager in this country.

I like Dean Smith, transitioned from League One to Championship fairly smoothly, I'd like to think he could do the same in the Premier League.

Obviously Sean Dyche is a good example of an English manager doing well who has been backed by his club, sometimes you are just destined for the drop.

Chris Wilder and Neil Harris, based off the last couple of seasons alone.

To get promoted from League One, spend relatively little (relying on mostly the same players as they had in League One), then not only stay up, but hammer on the door of the playoffs to the Premier League is truly impressive.

Nigel Clough was a matter of minutes from keeping Burton Albion in the Championship for a second year. Young, maybe not, but a manager deserving of a step up, definitely. 

It’s increasingly hard for English managers in the Championship with some now favouring foreign managers. Wolves, Norwich, Fulham, Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley ended the season with foreign managers and there’s a number of clubs who’ve had foreign manager at that level over the last few years (QPR, Leeds, Hull, Forest?).

I said I thought Danny Crowley would manage in the premiership one day and i still do.

On the topic of this: Chris Wilder has done the logical thing and signed a new contract with Sheffield United.
