    Didn't want Rosenior for ages, and now I've finally come round to the idea of him, so it would be typical Sunderland for us to **** the bed and fail to get yet another head coach across the line.

    Haway Kyril, get the lad signed man will ya.

    Regarding the Burnley link to Rosenior, the only person who had linked him to us (before Nixon jumped on the bandwagon) was Fishpaste. No journos had reported anything concrete and I think it's just been assumed that he would be on our shortlist. I would expect him to be someone of interest to us but there's never been anything other than Fishpaste claiming KLD had spoken to him that suggests he's close to joining us (I don't consider Nixon as credible)

    I'm happy to give Rosenior a chance as most people will be
    Mainly in the hope he is young has learned from his first year and can develop his style of playing.

    However given a choice I would go for Maric every time even though he's unproven as a head coach.
    Having read his ideas on the game they are much more akin to the Liverpool / Leverkusen style of play
    Quick transition moving the ball through the lines quickly everything geared around getting forward and scoring.

    I understand the slow posession based build up but its hard to get right
    It allows teams to get into shape which makes breaking them down difficult.
    relies on quick intelligent players making space and runs and able to spot and execute the pass.
    From our experience more often than not just end up with the ball going sideways and back to the centre halfs repeat.

    We have an opportunity to do something different thats why I would accept Rosenior but be a bit disappointed
    Absolutely understand why he splits the fan base.

    Won't Surprise me if we get someone in that we haven't been linked with or the betting sites have said

    That's no excuse if people are ambitious, it just shows up the poor attitude many coaches have imo. I was fluent in French after six months without a single lesson, because I wanted to live happily in the south of France ... and I'm a nugget <laugh>

    The likes of Allardyce may well have the talent but they're happy with the comfy merry-go-round of low pressure jobs and hefty pay-offs imo.

    I really don’t know what to make of the whole situation as I said the other day,I’m not the most patient of people and I’ve tried me best but it’s running on just a bit now as me mother used to say- its gone from the sublime to the ridiculous but all we can do is KTF and see what comes of it

    [QUOTE="Prehab26, post: 17608186, member: 1049748"]It's genuinely to a point now where we need the new man and his team in. Not next week/week after, now. If someone is all in and wants to really make a go of it, get it done. We have really taken too long and over complicated the process due to structure we have self imposed. Flex a little and get going into the new season.[/QUOTE]


    Two months overdue.imo

    I’m certainly coming round to that idea. If one of the criteria is that we are after a head coach that is bilingual then that rules out Rosenior I think.

    Yes we
    Yes we finished in that position but we underperformed (XG had us at 7th) and let’s be honest with the crowds we attract, infrastructure and potential we have, we should still be an attractive proposition.

    I don't know whether we have spoken to him or not, Prehab may be right, my point is that the Rosenior link originated with Fishpaste and has kind of exploded from there with people just assuming that Jansen and Rosenior were our 'final two' so to speak. I know some people believe Nixon (I don't) and the likes of Scott Wilson, James Copley et al just seem to repeat his claims as a matter of course to fill column inches. I'd be quite happy with Rosenior, I just don't think it's necessarily cut and dried and there may be some more twists to come...

    You and others have been saying this for weeks

    It’s pretty clear who we’ve been after and who we’re after now.

    Yet it's still not in the top 10 of unlikely things Monty has suggested!
