Candidates waiting to be interviewed for the Cardiff City Manager’s vacancy
I think you'll find that's a picture of some of our ex managers.
Anyway, what's all this about RM and Southampton?
Interesting if true.
Either being talked up by his agent to try and receive a new and improved (both length and money) contract from the Swans or people are beguiled by our recent run at season end.
He did a decent job for you. I'm sure he'll get you close next season if he stays.
“Cardiff City Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Erol Bulut as First Team Manager.
With over 25 years of experience at the top levels of European football as both a player and manager, the 48-year-old has signed a deal at Cardiff City Stadium and will meet Club staff and media for the first time on Monday afternoon.
Born in Germany, Erol began his playing career at Eintracht Frankfurt having come through the Bundesliga club’s Academy, later winning major national honours playing for the likes of Fenerbahçe and Olympiacos and representing both clubs in the UEFA Champions League. He enjoyed multiple trophy successes as a player, before moving into management in 2017.
After guiding Yeni Malatyaspor to a club-record high fifth-place finish in the Turkish Süper Lig in 2019 and reaching the UEFA Europa League qualifying stages, Erol joined Alyanaspor, leading them to their first domestic Cup Final and, again, the Europa League qualifying stages.
He was approached and recruited by former club and European heavyweight Fenerbahçe in 2020, winning 21 of his 34 matches in charge and securing the club’s highest recorded away win percentage.
Speaking of Erol’s appointment, Tan Sri Vincent Tan said: “I’d like to welcome Erol and offer him my sincerest best wishes and good luck as Manager of Cardiff City.
“This summer allowed us to consider applicants for the manager’s position from across Europe and, having taken our time with the process, I’m extremely confident that we have chosen the best candidate to take us forward.
"Erol has vast experience both as a player and as a manager, having played Champions League football and managed European sides across 200 League games to date. This level of experience is needed at this time and I think will prove invaluable to the squad.
“Erol’s enthusiasm and hunger for success impresses me greatly. When we spoke, it became clear that his intensity and hard work ethic matched the core cultural traits that I want our club to return to.
"His excellent record in European football represents a standard of managerial experience that we have not had at Cardiff City before. His experience in this field, I hope, will allow us to attract a higher profile and standard of player in the coming years.”
Excellent European record
That's why he's at Cardiff
Big as Barca etc.....
Bloody hell yes. I forgot about ils Sam Hamman saying that. He didn't do us any favours with that one
Anyway, we have a bit of German, Turkish delight now. Hopefully it'll still be around at Christmas.
The talk was about the guy from Chaves - be interesting to know what promises Tan has made Bulut re player recruitment, particularly given the ban on buying players and paying loan fees?
I think it's fair to say that our owner and board aren't experts in football (putting it mildly) and Mr Dalman our chairman is prone to find jobs for his mates. The word is that Bulut is a friend of his .
I'd have preferred the guy from Portugal but I don't honestly think it was ever a starter.
Anyway, we move on (in an unknown direction) and we'll support the boys that turn out for us each week.
Being a football fan denies all logic but at least none of us here are plastic fans.
Fine words Clingo - being a football fan defies all logic when we continually support the team no matter what.
Sorted, once and for all ….
True AI will never happen, these are just algorithms coded by humans to scrape existing information. Great buzz word for the money makers though.
… and the right answer
But of course, my programming is never wrong. Beep beep whirr.
In Portugal and the wife asked me to touch her clip, the whole bar looked and giggled, I said love we best do that in private and not in the middle of the bar. Silence was golden
