Fans claiming McKenna inexperience is a risk 17:05 - Dec 16 with 679 viewskizaitfc

Are they the same fans that didnt want Harris?

It seems to me the club were never going to please all, they had to choose a direction and they appear to have chosen long term.

I can certainly get on board with that, a manager that has spent his career as a coach in the prem should be able to get this lot playing.

If you look at how well Manning is doing at MKDons, inexperienced coach that stepped into management and he seems to be doing very well.

Is it a gamble yes, but we all thought Cook was a sure thing and look how that turned out!

Poll: Mick in or out? (not a dig at Mick just want to see the overall opinion on here)

The thing is, neither Manning or McKenna are inexperienced coaches - they've each been working for 10+ years. They just happen to have skipped the 'being a footballer' bit beforehand, which some of our dino fans still think is a prerequisite to being a good manager

Given the amount of failed footballing managerial dross out there - the deeper the talent pool gets by people going into management, despite not playing professional football, will hopefully be a good thing.

Hard agree. A great man* once said ‘more is lost by indecision than wrong decision’ and game changer appear to be setting out the next stage of their ownership now. Much prefer that than shilly shallying about with a short term approach now with a view to grand ideas later.

Indeed. And it might be that non-professional footballers study harder at coaching to make up for the perceived shortfall, whereas professional footballers-turned-managers are potentially a bit lazier because they feel like they've just 'picked stuff up' and can impart that.

Trust the process. Trust Phil.

Definitely a gamble but an exciting one.

Some 'fans' just love negativity. Now they've turned on Ashton they can start on the new manager.

It's positive that we've found someone highly rated to fit into the structure we're looking to build, which is what we probably should've done in the Summer.

Why is this a long term appointment? Because he’s young? There rarely seems to be such a thing as long term in football these days. I’m all for giving people a chance but what this thread isn’t acknowledging is that this squad need someone of stature to lead them not just new coaching methods and new ideas.

Being a coach and a manager are very different. As a manager he’ll need to deal with all the political and bureaucratic nonsense that comes with it as well as lead and inspire a bunch of different personalities loyal to others. This is going to be a baptism of fire and he’s not got long to get it right.

High risk for any club. Incredibly high given the state of ours and the fan base disillusionment.

I think this appointment is very much about the long term and perhaps indicates that promotion this season is not a requirement. A case of building a team that will get promoted in 2022/23.

Given Cook’s mismanagement then the new manager/coach may well need to hit the ground running. However, I think that he will be given time to
Improve things.

It’s a longer term appointment than the mooted quick fix approach, like a Warnock type would’ve been.

This idea of stature is rather reductive I must say. Cook had as much stature as you’re gonna get in a league 1 context and look where that got us.

I’m rather tired of this idea going around that our squad are petulant schoolboys who need a headmaster to scare them into playing. They’re just blokes doing a job, bring in someone to show them a real way to win and of course they’ll respond.

Stature didn't do Cook much good, did it?
