Will Kevin Keegan Replace Mark Hughes?

Google language translator


With Manchester City fans calling for Mark Hughes head, should another British manager, for example, Kevin Keegan replace this incompetent fool, or should the club rely upon an established overseas manager?

'King' Kevin Keegan is no stranger when it comes to managing a Premier League outfit, and with the 57-year-old unemployed and available, surely he would be the perfect replacement.

Blues fans know all about Keegan, having managed City between 2001and 2005, nevertheless, would any possible appointment be one-step forward and two steps back?

Who knows, but it has to be better than someone who is classed as inept by many. Mark Hughes is closer than ever to biting the bullet and to be honest, who cares. This bloke is a 'has-been' and is no longer wanted by the vast majority.

If fans want an overseas boss, how about Jose Mourinho? Yes, he is under contract, but that is only a piece of paper, and as we all know, money talks. If he were given the right and proper contract offer, would he take it? I bet he would.

Mad Kev? Never in a million years, Tudes. Mourinho? Unbelievable money to leave mid season. The Total Football phone in with Andy Hinchcliffe realised calls for the return of Svennis.

I would have KK, Hes a good friend! Plus he will listen to us fans.

KK thats as ridiculous as the return of Sven, does anyone remember the results from second half of last season, the embarrassment of the Boro result when the players were effectively playing for the managers job. Personnally i'd be looking towards Michael Laudrup as Mourinho would be too pricey. But in saying that i think Hughes hasn't the players to employ his style of play, we're far too light in midfield and havn't got any kind of leader whatsoever. For me too many of the current squad warrant the position we're in Vassel, Benjani, Ball, TBH, Dunne these players decision making are questionable at best. Richards seems to be picking up all Dunnes worst habits and desperately needs a quality defender a longside to fullfill his early potential.

who in the right mind is linking keegan with city?!??seriously, is this a joke? who thinks the billionaire arabs would employ a mr motivater with NO tactics or track record of winning throphies in the modern game. if adugs first sign of intentment was robinho, dont u think when they employ a manager of theit own choice, that he wouldnt be a big name. we need to remember we can afford to buy the best and hire the best, if we want to be the best, no curbishly, no keegan, no reid, no o;leary. managers who have won leagues, worked with big players and at clubs will only be considered when hughes is given the boot. city could get hiddink, van gaal, rykard, lippi and terim now. all candidates have won leagues and european throphies. all these guys are well respected in world football and would attract the top players. not the bellamys, warnocks and bentleys. sven would be a good choice, had three weeks to prepare for season and buy players. so its no suprise we tailed of at the second end. but the players loved him, we were solid and twice the team we are now. hughes had the whole summer to access the squad and he deemed it good enough, unitil adug came in with the billionaires. hughes has to go, i know for a fact he has lost the dressing room. his tactics are s***, never takes responsibilites, he cant manage big players and i wouldnt thrust him to spend correctly in january. sunderland and blackburn are reaping the rewards of a new management. time is not on citys side.... SACK HUGHES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop this crap right now. Keegan bad, Sven bad. Look forward not back! Anyone for Pearce or Frank Clark? Thought not, but I'd welcome either about the same as KK or Sven. When listening to suggestions like this it just makes me glad that Fat Sam is back in gainful employment! Always Souness or Roeder available if we get desparate though! Hughes looks pretty poor at moment, and obviously we fans ain't happy. My tuppenorth says if he isn't gone by 5:00 tomorrow afternopon then we are lumbered with him until at least February. Personally after today have moved to the "get rid" camp ,but can understand the logic in giving the manager the benefit of 5-6 new signings before deciding whether to wield the axe or not; but I'm struggling to imagine Hughes turning this around. On one hand, the Hughes signings have been very good (PZ, VK, SWP) or at least decent (TBH), Ireland has thrived & we have scored loads; On the other our once solid defense has gone astray and the goal supply seems to have dried up. Add to this the press stimulated rumours (pinch of salt needed) of unrest int the dressing room and you have a very unsettling situation.However, no matter what happens, this situation can't be much worse than the uncertainty which surrounded the club before the Abu Dhabi takeover, so chin up city fans! Keep your bile on the web and get behind the team even if we do sign the likes of Bellamy!!! Remember, CTID (no matter how hard it gets!)
