    I bet he straight away walks into another highly paid managerial role

    With Hughes they had neither, so can't be any worse off moving forward.

    Like where? This is the thing for me - as I said, what could your problem possibly be when Hughes is the solution?

    Burnley, Fulham, Huddersfield, Palace, Newcastle, Cardiff - all look settled. And who of them would go for him with a vacancy anyway?

    Championship clubs are also settled. And most seem to look for talent rather than has beens.

    There is always West Ham ‘next season’ as a ‘back stop’ for any manager.

    HASENHUTTL AGREES DEAL

    Ralph Hasenhuttl has agreed terms on a three-year contract until the summer of 2021 to take over as Southampton boss, Sky Sports News understands.

    Pending the conclusion of the finer details on that deal, the Austrian intends to be at Wembley on Wednesday night to watch the Saints’ Premier League clash with Tottenham.

    On Tuesday, SSN exclusively broke the news that Hasenhuttl had agreed in principle to take the job after talks with chairman Ralph Krueger, director of football operations Ross Wilson and other members of the Southampton board.

    He'll have already used more intelligence learning to spell his own name than Hughes has in his entire managerial career.

    Saw Moyes was interested the other day. Stoke, the club that never evolves.

    I do find some pleasure in Rowett going as well. He happily shat on Derby because he would have had to work with a budget, jumped ship because he was onto that good stuff parachute payments, and promptly did absolutely fudge all.

    I quite liked him at Birmingham, and Derby, thought he was doing a good job - but the way he treated Derby was poor.

    And then of course rookie manager Lampard comes in and shows him how its done (so far!)

    I wonder if Derby fans know any German words.

    And the brick manager gravy train continues as BFS is heavily linked with the Stoke job

    BFS is solid, if unspectacular. There is clearly a cap to what he can achieve, and very much like Moyes - I dont believe it is a budget limitation but a manager limitation.

    Seen Moyes linked the strongest. A report earlier distanced Allardyce.

    Makes me laugh though, Pulis leaves, and 5 years later Moyes will end up being their "future". Its like the club that time forgot.

    allardyce will get a club punching above its weight, that's success imo

    success for Stoke is being in the PL

    We arent talking the same thing here.

    "Success" is relative.

    Whether or not a manager has taken a club as far as IT can go is something else entirely.

    IMHO both Allardyce and Moyes effectively underachieved at past clubs.

    I don't agree with that for BFS, Everton maybe, but he was only a stopgap there

    Moyes was solid at Everton and overachieved with West Ham

    Agreed. Two of the most successful managerial spells in the PL era were Allardyce at Bolton and Hughes at Blackburn. They had their teams in the top ten, pushing Europe. But they wanted more and allowed themselves to be tempted. I can see why they would want to see what they could do with more resources, but they could have stayed and become club legends. Another who excelled but wanted more was Curbishley. I couldn't tell you what division Charlton are in without looking it up.

    good point, I think it works both ways though, sometimes the clubs overreach
