If it’s simply a case of trying to get back up at the first attempt then it has to be Allardyce, should the opportunity present itself. He’s not perfect and it might be a return to simple and unspectacular football but he knows the league inside out and knows how to get results. The downside to it is that he’d be shortsighted appointment and safe option, which is why we are where we are today.
If not, I’d like to see us revisit QSF given he’s lost his job and we might need someone to come and start a project here. I think someone like him would give the support a lift and is a little more unpredictable. However I don’t know if bridges were burnt.
After that, I’ve gone Pearson and Bilic. Pearson is mad and the PL is probably out of his reach at this time so a job like Stoke would be good for him. I like Bilic and think he maybe fell victim to the batshit mental West Ham machine whilst also letting himself down a little. I don’t know if he’d have the right knowledge to know what’s required down in the Championship but wouldn’t be against giving him a go.
Has there been any more talk on Lambert going based on this thread being created? Or is just fanciful in the hope we do get shot of Lambert? Can anybody really tell me they’d be excited at the prospect of Lambert leading us out in August? I think that’s the thing I dread most, he’s so clearly useless.
