good question but doubt it. He is performing miracles here but like most managers he has a ceiling. He isn’t an attractive name for pl owners and never been there before. Never say never but doubtful. His best way is with us

Don`t think he will leave of his own volition in the next 3 or 4 years
He told me that he is staying just to wind Grendel up and that is his leading motivation is to prove him wrong !!
If he went to a club higher up he’d have one year to get promoted or be out of a job. Here there’s little expectation

Nope no chance, Just not the sort of manager who gets a chance at that level.

I actually feel like we are in a really good place with Robins. He left once for a minor step up which really didn't work out for him. He has turned down an offer from Sunderland, I just think he knows he fits here.

Middling Champ teams might try and poach him but most of those who might aren't that much of an upgrade. He seems settled here and despite what some say the board have backed him whilst staying within the budgets.

We're laughing because the Premier League chairman mainly employ non-UK nationals, but that's been the case with most Championship clubs recently... Which is why I do not feel he will be poached.

Could we see him go to a top end SPL team? That would at least give him the chance of European football.

If I had to say anyone in the Prem, I'd say Newcastle. He would fit a lot of their criteria and, looking at it from a MR perspective, Newcastle would be more of a temptation/justifiable than say Nowrich or Watford etc.

There's no chance at all of him getting a job in premier league. Unless he gets there with us.

Just a small matter of Another 75/80 points.

Via play offs best bet. So another 60 points from 40 games. Easy!

Sunderland , Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday.

More likely to be a cash strapped fallen giant in league 1.

What criteria does he fit to get the Newcastle job?
The main criterion being proven success on a limited budget. The rest of their requirements, you could pin to any number of managers.

The outlook changes if the media begin painting him in a certain light or talking very specifically about his style of football.

The old Swansea boss was linked with Palace before Viera and Graham Potter moved to Brighton from the champ didn't he? But they probably only got those moves because of their profile in the media

The only way a manager from a Championship team will get a job in the PL is to get his club promoted
I can't remember the last PL to appoint someone from a lower division
Edit. Potter was but from Swansea, who had recently been a PL side

Burnley would seem a good fit in terms of cash strapped and in the Prem.

They're gonna get sick of Dyche and his shithousery up there soon.

Robinsball with Prem money would suit them I reckon.

Hope it never happens, but that's my two penn'orth.

Not sure about that. A manager or player doesn’t get a move to higher division because there was a feature on the television! Cooper did get Swansea in the play offs

If we finish top 6 then maybe
If he did that then he'd have taken us from League Two to the verge of the Premier League & won a cup along the way, all with the backdrop of the crap in the background and the much talked about "tiny budget". Essentially he'd have worked a minor miracle.

He's not going to be looked at by your Arsenals, but how many other managers would have that record on their recent CV? Somebody would be after him.

He's not a 'personality' which helps, very much under the media radar & not constantly looking to big himself up in interviews which other managers do.

I'm clutching at straws thinking about Championship examples other than Graham Potter to be honest, he was unique in that he managed abroad and had a brief moment in Europe with Ostersund. He spent one season or something with Swansea and was offered a PL gig - but he was very much a known profile, spoken about and that's what I think got him that gig.

Pep Guardiola once said in the media that Arteta was the best up and coming coach in Europe or something and that basically got him the Arsenal job.

It is strange how he’s never really pulled up any trees at any other clubs , yet both spells here have been his best . Sometimes a club and a boss fit

He did really rather well at Rotherham.

Did alright at Barnsley too, whatever they say. They're bitter because he quit expecting a bigger club to approach him... and they didn't.
