You all know it will be Van Egmond, a championship winning, highly rated coach already living here in Canberra.

His job isn't just coaching a bunch on youngsters. He also co-coaches with the U/20's, and builds up the AIS in the NATION YOUTH LEAGUE. There is more to do than just coaching them.

BTW, the AIS is participating in the NYL this year- not the VPL.

here's one for everyone:

terry venables, currently without a club, experienced manager, would cost a fair bit but nothing extreme.

he was at one stage confirmed as the newcastle jets coach in the inaugural season of the a-league this didn't go ahead but what it does show is that he does have some sort of desire to come and live in australia.

He'd be great. But as MinsterMan said, it will more than likely be Gary Van egmond.

Maybe a bit farfetched but what about Gordon Strachan. He is out of the job ATM. But I think that the A-League wouldn't be good enough for him.

He'd be good- but as you said wouldn't be interested in a move to the A-League. His next move would more than likely be an EPL club or another SPL job.

Jorvan Vieria. Brazilian. Currenlty out of the job and has great experience at the top level, including guiding Iraq to the 2007 Asian Cup. Thoughts?

He would be interested, as he has been everywhere and he think highly of Australian football. IMO, would be great.

Ive heard Henry has local family here as well, might be a good starting point to kick-start his coaching career in a quiet, low profile and less stressful league than in Europe.

Bergkamp is another one Canberra should be keeping an eye on, he’s interested in coaching and currently an assistant at Arsenal. Opening up a head coaching career away from the ruthless English tabloid media might appeal to him.

And lets not forget Guus. There is a good chance Russia wont qualify and if that happens I feel there is a strong chance that now he is nearing retirement, a stint in Australia might be something he is interested in. He did say he liked it here.

The first two I think we would have a realistic chance at getting in particular Bergkamp, but the latter in Guus is very unlikely. I just couldn't see us suiting his financial requirements.

Yeah but he's made a lot of money over the last 10 years so at his age lifestyle might be a bigger motivater than money. Look at guys like Henrik Larrson, he turned down a contact at Man U to play for Helsingsborg.

Oh yea good point.

Although, as you say at his age- if he was to take a step back and manage in one of the smaller leagues, it may be at a club like Gold Coast, Sydney and Melbourne with the picturesque lifestyle.

Interesting read on the Canberra Times website the other day. All a bit of fun but hypothisised 5 potential managers of a Canberra A-League team: Harry Kewell, Frank Farina, Tony Vidmar, Luke Wilkshire and Paul Okon.

https://www.smh.com.au/sport/soccer/the-five-coaches-canberra-s-a-league-bid-should-go-after-20181126-p50iej.html

If we're going local, Harry Kewell would be an amazing get as your foundation coach. The amount of publicity that could produce would be excitement enough for Canberrans and A-League fans to get around. This not even factoring in the good coaching ability he has IMO. He can be considered very harshly done by at Notts County. He seems to have a good tactical knowledge of the game.

Agree RE Kewell. Think for buzz and marketing purposes, he'd be ideal. Also reckon he did pretty well in his time in England and definitely would have cut his teeth a bit and would cope well in the a-league

Vidmar would be a decent option too I reckon, good head on his shoulders and been getting some good experience over the years
