    Digging up the old Manager debate

    Post by Joey47 on Sun Sep 26, 2010 3:38 am

    A year has passed since the last debate regarding a possible coach for a Canberra A-League club... people's minds have gone in a new direction, some managers have have damaged their coaching credentials and prestige with their respective clubs, some new blood has risen through the ranks, some have take a step back and are patiently waiting for the right job to come up.

    Realistically, we aren't going to pluck a a World-class manager from the leagues like the EPL, La Liga, Serie A etc., therefore restricting us to 3 options:

    -Experienced Australian managers
    -Young, Up and coming managers
    -European manager, or foreign manager in general, who has been signed from a league like the Czech League, Dutch.2, Bundesliga.2 etc

    There are advantages from all IMO.

    Thoughts? And furthermore how about some potential candidates?

    IMO, we need an experienced manager to start off with, especially someone with a high profile in Australian soccer, Frank Farina is a d*uche but hed bring some publicity,

    john kosmina is not the right man for the job IMO, he failed at sydney FC and is just one of the australian coaches on the merry go round that achieves not much but still seems to get jobs.

    I believe a foreign coach similar to a straka that comes relatively cheap with some top flight experience in europe would be great.


    zelic is an unproven quantity but i'd like to see him get the assistant coaching position because he has passion for canberran football and would supplement the euro coach

    Personally, like Schimch, I'd like to see a Straka, Lavicka, Coolen-esque manager plucked from Europe. WE have seen the success in the A-League that a foreign coach brings. They bring flair, a sense of excitement that you don't see from the likes of David Mitchell, Ian Ferguson etc.
    However, the rate of quality Australian coaches ATM, is ever improving. The success these managers are enduring is quite pleasing... Graham Arnold, Ange Postecoglou, Aureli Vidmar just to name a few.

    Canberra will not doubt have a fairly young side. IMO, we will rely a lot on youth, using the AIS as the backbone to our side. Therefore it is necessary to have an experienced manager on board.

    Depending on who it is, I'd go for a young, up and coming coach. Someone like a Paul Okon or Gary Van Egmond would be great IMO.

    TBH, I would really like to see Gary Van Egmond given a go. Personally, I think thathe is the only established coach that is of quality. Kosmina, as schimch said, is just a part of the coaching merry-go-round. GVE has proven that he is good enough to manage in the A-League.

    If we are unable to get GVE, I would seek a European manager.

    I think it is a matter of who we get, rather than what pedigree he is.

    A Gary Van Egmond or a Paul Okon would be the most suitable candidates if we were to get an Aussie. So yeah, it is more, of who we get IMO.

    An overseas manager would be ideal I think.

    Craig Foster anyone? lol

    Went for the Young and Upcoming managers. Paul Okon has the credentials, IMO, to be a great manager. He has the football brain to do so. As mentioned before, Gary Van Egmond would also be someone that would be a great choice.

    A European manager would also be suitable for us.

    IMO, we need a manager who has the capabilities to work with an inexperienced squad. However, Okon fits under this as he has captained the Socceroos and been in some of the top leagues in the world. I think it is fairly obvious that we will rely on youth, as mentioned.

    She's 17, I guess that would be a consideration in the future if she went to ANU or something. Stay and mooch off her folks.

    I'd love to see Foz manage. (Honestly I'm surprised the FFA aren't paying him, he's got some good ideas). We'd play in blue and red and change our name to FC Can-bra-celona.

    I think foz would be a good technical director of a club rather than coach but still i'd take him for coach!

    The odds of Foster having to do with anything football coaching related would be slim to none. I don't think we will ever see him take up managing. At most maybe the occasional consultant.

    IMO, it needs to be a manager who is a young and upcomer. However, he needs to have some form of experience whether this be through playing for the Socceroos or through being an assistant manager at another A-League club.

    Paul Okon fits under all this, and he looks as though he knows a lot about football.

    Yeah golden CU agree but there are other options, the golden generation for australian footballers has the potential to see a golden age of australian coaches. the likes of viduka, grella, chippers, moore, bresc all have the footballing intelligence to be a successful coach, it all depends on the opportunities they get.

    I think it would be better in the long run if we bring in an experienced coach from overseas for 2 years or so to (stabilise the team) and have a young Australian coach as Assistant who may take the coaching role later.

    Me too. I'd like to see Gary Van Egmond take up the reigns as the manager. If not then for sure a European manager.
