See you around - Club Statement | Stoke City FC
This whole affair has been so similar to us under Monk last year.
Quickly becoming one of those managers who will always get a job despite not really achieving anything.
I will admit I was quite pleased in the Summer we got him but the Derby fans on here warned us how bad his football was and so it proved. He has also come across as a very arrogant, stubborn tosspot.
So, who now? We must have someone lined up as I can’t see us doing what we did at pretty much the exact same time last year. Thought we had QSF in the bag only for him to change his mind and then we panicked
Match made in heaven
A footballing coward.
Will never forget Derby coming to us last season he/they completely surrendered from the first whistle and it stank of "just don't get battered, lads"
They were 5th FFS!
As it turns out, we battered them but unmistakably they were beaten before the first minute. Easiest win of the season.
I wanted him after we got rid of Zenga he'd done remarkably at the Noses, but living in Derby, hearing about him at work etc and seeing the above? Bullet dodged.
Samoaurus Rex for Stoke?
His arrogance is unreal considering he's done nothing in his managerial career, did he even win a promotion at Burton?
Someone who will get told to work with a reduced budget?
Just looking through the Stoke squad there, the salaries must be eyewatering
Bounced to Brum with them in the L2 play offs. JFH finished the job.
Already ruled himself out apparently. Jokanovic would be a good shout but can’t see us going for him as our Chairman is still a racist () and will only go British. Martin O’Neill it is then
Reminds me in many ways of when McGhee left Leicester to come to Wolves.
David Moyes anyone ?
Might wish he had held off a bit as this job might be more appealing than the Wednesday one ..
On his way to Wednesday
Mark Hughes has unfinished business.
But it will probably be Allardyce or Moyes. The former would possibly rejuvenate them enough for a late play off push. Not sure if the latter would since he hasn't managed at this level in 20 years.
Strangely enough, if we hadn't conceded late equalisers to QPR, Reading and Villa in the last month or so then Rowett would have won six games on the bounce. That was a part of the problem, too many draws coupled with dour, unimaginative football. Even when we beat Ipswich and Millwall last month we struggled to get a shot on target.
The atmosphere towards him has been absolutely toxic since Boxing Day. To be fair I don't think this was all his doing. The Coates Family have always been very loyal to their managers, often to a fault. Tony Pulis should have gone 12 months before he did, likewise if we'd stopped the 'Mark Hughes rot' back in 2016/17 I doubt we'd have been relegated. Supporters recognised this and didn't want to take any chances. They turned apathy and frustration into something extremely poisonous and uncomfortable in the space of a few days. Rowett never knew what hit him, even if he did try to put a brave face on it.
Gutted, was hoping we could have given him a good send off on Sat, wont be long before some dopey owner gives him a start.
Weird how he's turning out.
A couple of years ago I thought he seemed an obvious successor to Howe but the fans of every club he manages have nothing but bad things to say.
Sol Campbell.... lots of experience at Macclesfield.
