Qualities of the new manager


Qaz

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Rather than name names, I thought i'd take a different take on the new manager debate.

Rank in order, what qualities you want the new manager to have (in order of preference).

- Premiership experience and history of success

- Continental experience and history of success (that is in Italy, Spain and German top leagues)

- Able to unite the team, deal with big egos and get the players all pushing in the same direction (in other words, soft skills)

- Plays attacking (but not necessarilly attractive) football

- Plays attractive, link-up (but not necessarilly attacking) football

- Knows how to spot talent in the transfer market

- Big personality / Ego. Someone who will attract attention to the club

- Someone prepared to give the young players at the club game time

If you can think of any new qualities that don't overlap with the ones allready listed, feel free to add them. Also, for the sake of the debate, lets talk about qualities you want from a manager rather than naming the actual names of the managers you want to see at the club (theres a dozen other threads for that).

To Loz, Mod, Butch, EthicalStrategy, etc. If there is a way to make a poll out of this (one where you rank the options rather than choose between them) please feel free to add it.

Okay - this isn't easy by I reckon in order of the following:

- Continental experience and history of success (that is in Italy, Spain and German top leagues and Brazilian!)

- Able to unite the team, deal with big egos and get the players all pushing in the same direction (in other words, soft skills)

- Plays attractive, link-up (but not necessarily attacking) football

- Someone prepared to give the young players at the club game time

- Knows how to spot talent in the transfer market

- Big personality / Ego. Someone who will attract attention to the club

- Premiership experience and history of success

- Plays attacking (but not necessarily attractive) football

-Someone who is able to handle a squad full of internationals and who has experience in big league. Italy, England, Germany, Spain.

-Someone who already has the respect of the players. Maybe an old player.

-He should also be young enough 40-50 so we could see a long future with him.

-Someone who is diplomatic enough to be able to work with Roman.

+ An old Chelsea player

I really don't know who would fit into this mould who is available.

I will add ES's in there. My list:

-Winning mentality, a proven winner. (speaks for itself, really)

-Continental pedigree (if we have aspirations to be the best, we have to do it on the biggest stage)

-Premiership pedigree (Winning titles is paramount, and doing it here will further establish us as a domestic force)

-

-Ability to unite the team (we have big players and getting them to "buy in" for the sake of the club is huge)

-

-Ability to play attractive football (if it looks good, I will be happy, attacking or not)

-Gives young players time (to be a prolonged force we need to build from within)

-

-

-

-Knows how to spot talent in the transfers (a great skill, but not vital with the braintrust at Chelsea. Not getting fleeced is more important for me)

-

-Plays attacking football (there has gotta be a tactical balance)

and to be honest, i couldnt give a hoot if the manager is a big ego or presence or not. Success has a way of making its own celebrities. Good thread idea Qaz!

Okay, avoiding overlap, so far we have.

- Premiership experience and history of success

- Continental experience and history of success (that is in Italy, Spain and German top leagues)

- Able to unite the team, deal with big egos and get the players all pushing in the same direction (in other words, soft skills)

- Plays attacking (but not necessarilly attractive) football

- Plays attractive, link-up (but not necessarilly attacking) football

- Knows how to spot talent in the transfer market

- Big personality / Ego. Someone with a winning mentallity

- Someone prepared to give the young players at the club game time

- Someone young (40-50) to raise the possibility of the manager being at the club long term

- Diplomatic enough to work well with Roman

- Has some emotional link with the club (eg. boyhood fan, ex-player, ex-manager, etc)

Is there anyone in the world who ticks all of the above boxes? I have serious doubts!

For me the bloke taking over has to able to handle a large group of millionaires all of which can spit their dummies at the slightest spat. The top class coaching etc we have to expect. I wouldnt be at all suprised see an older manager overseeing a coach whose sole responsibilty is the playing side to be installed.

My opinion:

1. Unite the team and get them pushing in the right direction - because this is what will actually win us matches

2. Continental experience - because if they don't have it, and we don't get perfect results, they will get the sack and we will be back to square 1

3. Plays attacking football which gets the nod over attractive football, surely, as we can't afford another trophyless season

4. Plays attractive football see above

5. Be prepared to give youth players a go this is quite important with the seven sub rule, and a trimmed squad

6. Ability to spot cheap talent in the transfer market would be nice, but (a) we can always splash the cash and get proven talent if we want to (:) I wonder whether whoever the new manager is will have any say in this anyway - i've got a feeling that Arnesen might be in complete control of this now

Don't matter at all, so i'm not going to rate them:

Big personality - I don't think it matters, as long as the team is united and going in the right direction (point 1) - usually big personalites are better at getting this to happen though

Premiership experience - realistically, other than Hughes, none of the managers we are going to look at are going to have premiership experience, so it doesn't really matter

if "charisma" and "personality" are the most important things, this is who we should go for:

brillaint G4, get his agent on the phone pronto

It is probably harder to find a suitable manager for Chelsea than buying a giant panda.
