Made that mistake once before. Cant make it again. Has had a long and distinguished apprenticeship and is IMO easily the best candidate.

He has only been coaching for 1 1/2 years, good pedigree, but not experienced enough you would think? Also 1 win in his last 5 matches.

I would prefer Milicic tbh.

An opportunity to draw together a couple of threads now running.

With the departure of JvS, who do we want for our new head coach?

Please see Get Milicic thread for my opinion :P. Although our scouts have had success getting players from South America. Would take some South American nutter to come in

Arteta would be great. Been a City for a year or so now + instantly an recognizable figure for the club.

Pellegrini would be good but coaching in China for millions more than we'd be able to pay. Bielsa would be good but a bit too unpredictable for CFG I think and also probably too expensive.

In all seriousness, I don't really know who is available/suitable, it won't be Bielsa, to much of a loose cannon and as far as an Aussie, Milicic you would think deserves a go but is untried.

What's Piksi Stojkovic up to nowadays?

i had heard it would be an internal (cfg) applicant next season so not sure how this changes things.

Arthur Papas?

He deserves a gig and has the credentials and experience, just untried at a higher level, would be an interesting one, I'd be willing to give him a go.

Arteta then

 

High profile coaches out of contract (but probably to expensive), all over 45% win rate:

Bruno Labbadia

Marcelino

Thomas Schaaf - didn't like his football at Hannover 96 though, but the board sold the best players when he came in and we had an aging squad.

Juande Ramos - Has coached lower clubs recently (though has coached Real Madrid and last club being Malaga) 48.2% win rate, would be a dream coach and seems to not mind coaching at lower levels.

Dirk Schuster - played some good stuff and some defensive horrible stuff (but that was relative to the squad he had)

Frank de Boer - newish coach, pretty good record, 56% win rate

Bloody oath.

His names John and he played football in Europe (1 league appearance for Arsenal I believe). Proper pedigree, get him in.

And brownie points for grabbing Muscat by the throat. Maybe that fund we had going to pay out JVS can go towards getting Kosmina in.

This great man should be our coach. Bozzas a family man (as u can see), he is a legend and could have coached Aston Villa.

Bring Mark Bosnich to Melbourne City

I know that Milicic is a favourite with some, but I think I would prefer someone with a fresh pair of eyes and no previous connections with the club to see what he can do with what is undoubtedly a talented squad. We need someone with fresh ideas who is willing to get stuck in and shake the club out of what I see as a sterile thinking pattern. Someone used to demanding a quicker and more direct style of football. Germany maybe?

Anyone that will put the players in their preferred position would be a good start.

But I am interested to see what Valkanis can do after learning under Amor and Gombau, and learning what not to do under JVS.

Don't shoot the messenger.... But personally I think he is not that good of a manager either..... although with AFC Champions League trophy, he may have a good argument

The way I see it, is that if Popa can win the Champions League as well as reach those GFs with the spuds he's had, imagine him with a decent squad. Only concern would be the constant turnover of players he always has.

I think he is a good coach, very demanding and seems to bring professionalism, he seems to chop and change too much though, but maybe it is more financial constraints?
