    I’m not the one you need to convince
    But for fans to get on board and get behind a manager it’s important

    Personally would love Gasperini. Has done a fantastic job at Atalanta over the last few years. 11th biggest wage bill in serie a yet keep qualifying for cl, whilst playing the most attacking football in the league.

    Potter shafted Mat Ryan pretty quickly - potentially similar?

    63 and probably a bit too "Bielsa" for us to take the gamble on bringing him to England for the first time. Would be fun though.

    That article does say he knew was playing brick and deserved to be dropped, but wasn't expecting to be dropped permanently.

    As he's not that old for a keeper it does seem a bit harsh, however if Potter wanted to rebuild for the long term perhaps it is understandable.

    Also, went to the Arse amid comments about his boyhood club, so loses a lot of sympathy...

    100 per cent behind Gasperini. So what he is 63? If he stays for five years he will get us playing the football we want to watch again. I am really shocked he has not been mentioned at all in the press.

    I doubt any manager we get we'll have more than 7 years from.

    Or the lille manager. You'd think those two would be top of the list.

    Yeah they talk about Potter in this weeks VFTL pod and how he seems distant to the players
    Personally I think that’s a good thing if you need to make hard decisions but who knows with snowflake players

    Yet Rangnick is top of most people's list, is 62 and has only managed or played outside of Germany when he was playing pub league while at university in Brighton in the 1970s.

    Is Rangnick not more championed because of his performance behind the scenes for Red Bull?

    What would be the difference between hiring a manager in his 50s or 40s who had never managed in the PL and one in his 60s?

    Not having a go at you but I'm beginning to wonder whether we're looking for a new manager or a new best friend. Rodgers is too crazy, Gasperini is too old, Rangnick is (too) racist...

    Quite frankly, I couldn't care less if our new boss enjoys wearing women's underwear, eats brick (Chuck Berry did and he'll rock forever!) or kneels down before a portrait of Hitler before going to bed every night. I'd like to have a good time when I watch my team and, possibly, win a thing or two once every half a century.

    Of course, I understand that if we appoint a controversial personality we'll end up with the press on our backs (again) but are there really people out there who think this constant scrutiny of what an individual has said and done in his entire life is really a good thing?

    good question, we all have our own lines I'm sure, I personally don't mind age or them being a bit of a dingdonghead, but being racist (if indeed he is) should mean a hard no imo
