Rumours today that it'll be Gordon Strachan until the end of the season.

He's second favourite at 3to1 now

These markets are crazy. Unsworth has been odds on, big Sam and dyche have been 6/4 and now Silva is 3to1

If you'd layed them all when they were short you'd have a big profit already and there's a decent chance it won't be any of them

It does seem, as mentioned earlier in the thread, that if we were going for a free agent this would have been sorted by now.

I am so torn on Silva.

I like managers who have a certain way of playing because I think it brings some sort of identity to the side and Silva's style in particular seems to get the best out of the majority of players. Watford have had ten different goalscorers in the league this season whereas we've had four and that was only doubled last weekend. Considering we have no real recognisable striker and have brought in the likes of Sigurdsson, Sandro, Klaassen and Rooney to replace Lukaku's goals then you'd expect Silva to get a lot out of those players.

I do worry that he conceded seven in a match with Hull against Spurs last season and six against Man City this season. They threw away leads at Chelsea and against us in Martinez fashion but then, how much of that was his fault? Is it is fault that his keeper got injured? Is it his fault that their CB allowed Niasse to nick the ball and score? Is it his fault that Holebas fell over? probably not. However he also allowed Cleverley to take charge of the penalty which is a Martinez-esque decision considering Richarlison and Gray were on the pitch.

I have no idea what he'd do with our defence. We probably do have better individuals at the back than Watford but we lack so much pace that I don't think it suit's Silva's style at all.

Perhaps Martinez has just clouded my view of any manager that plays that sort of football but he'd be a better option than most. I don't think he's flavour of the month either. You can't just ignore his achievements with Estoril (which were outstanding), Sporting and Olympiacos because they weren't jobs on these shores.

Agree with that. Silva seems to set up his teams to counter attack with strong, pacey players...erm, we don't have any. He'd want to do a lot of wheeling and dealing in Jan to put his stamp on the squad. Have the board got the stomach to spend loads more money and potentially move on some of their 'flops'? Also have concerns he has a bit of 'Martinez' about him but, as you said, this can be down to just managing average players who make mistakes.
And why doesn't he stick around anywhere for more than a year? This can probably be explained away - Portuguese/ Greek teams always have a revolving door of managers and Hull got relegated.

I still think this squad is best suited to someone like Dyche who can just make us solid, defend deep and nick games - before looking to evolve our style of play. People don't want to hear it as they have romantic ideas of someone coming in and turning us into a free-flowing, attacking team over the course of a couple of months...it's not happening lads.

Alarm bells should have rang regarding Silva when his team conceded three in one half against us!

If we go for Dyche it would be a managerial appointment with all the sophistication of a game of Pass The Parcel. Whoever has a team punching above their weight outside the top six at the exact time that we sack our manager gets the prize.
