If we continue to perform as we are?
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 expectationDon`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 !!
What criteria does he fit to get the Newcastle job?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.
Burnley would seem a good fit in terms of cash strapped and in the Prem.The main criterion being proven success on a limited budget. The rest of their requirements, you could pin to any number of managers.
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 offsThe 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
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.If we finish top 6 then maybe
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.Not sure about that.

He did really rather well at Rotherham.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
