Previous appointments by Mr Evans 17:18 - May 20 with 2452 viewsYeti

I was not a forum user when Keane, Jewell and McCarthy were announced as manager. Were these names high on the bookies list of names , were they previously discussed on this board, or were they announced out totally out of the blue? Will it be tomorrow?

Keane was out of the blue, but then Magilton had only just been sacked. With Jewell I don't remember a lot of discussion beforehand.

McCarthy was debated beforehand, along with Holloway and a couple of other less likely candidates (including Shearer!), while Jewell was still in his last, painful weeks in the job. Think it was Glasgow who first got me convinced it was a good idea.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

Had to Google a couple of articles to remind myself but these two sum it up. Magilton was sacked one day and Keane appointed the next having "taken his time to decide it was the right job for him" according to SImon Clegg.

Thank you. That Keane article feels almost sinister now, although at the time I felt very positive with the appointment.

As others have said, RK was completely out of the blue and most were quite pleased with the appointment.

PJ took a bit longer, but only a few days from memory. Seem to recall Roy leaving just before the Arsenal semi final, but PJ was in the crowd. Opinions on here were mixed, I for one wasn’t pleased!

MM took longer and was the bookies favourite. Reaction was generally positive.

PJ had little to no support even from the outset. Sensible fans obviously gave him a fair run but no one wanted him.

Hoddle was long odds on favourite with the bookies before Keane was announced. It’s similar to what’s going on now with Ross,so I expect Lampard or someone else to be named manager

The difference is the time taken. The bookies have had more chance to spot indicators.

That said, ME usually plays things fairly close to his chest.

I see Ross as a bit of a red herring,diverting attention away from others.If Evans really wanted here and he really wanted to come, it would've surely all been wrapped up by now.

I remember seeing MM and Shearer on Match of the day a couple of day's before Mick was announced, at the time it could have been either according to reports at the time.

'Arry' was also mentioned as well....

Keane was pretty much the only name seriously mentioned in the day or so between Jim being sacked and RK being appointed. Once Jim had gone RK quickly emerged as the man who was about to be named.

Jewell moving to odds-on favourite indicated that he was going to get the job and his appointment followed a few days afterwards.

With Mick, he was the one the club wanted from the off and while Holloway was spoken to, it was only as a contingency in case it didn't happen with Mick.

None of those situations were really comparable with now as there wasn't a lengthy process as there has been this time around. It's most like when Jim was appointed when Nigel Pearson was the favourite - and was the candidate favoured by David Sheepshanks and others going into the interviews, from what I recall - but Jim gradually emerged as the leading contender and favourite.

I think that's a little harsh. Lots of people were cautiously pleased to have someone a bit more normal (human, even) as manager of our club. The porn home video thing didn't exactly get him off on the front foot.

But he did have some record of success and results did improve for a time.

Good Lord! Whatever is it?

I’d say it was very 50/50 on PJ.

I do think ME gets a tough time on here for his previous appointments... They were understandable at the time , though others like to look back , with the benefit of hindsight.

Keane had took Sunderland up , from near the bottom of the championship , into the Premier League. So had been successful in his first position and had always shown himself to be a winner on the field too.

When he left, Jewell was one of only 2/3 managers who had been promoted from the championship twice.. Again I can see why ME went for him.

Similarly MM, had been promoted with both Sunderland and Wolves. And was what we needed at the time.

I think for me the key thing is whoever ME appoints , it will be for good reason, how it works out time will tell... But whoever it is deserves all of our support.

Well I hope whoever we get is given a fair chance before the glass half empty element see an opening. Let’s hope it’s someone the fans approve of and positivity prevails.
