Why dosen,t everyone get behind nuno ,hes not going no where for at least a season ...there are no good alternitives out there, no one wants the job ffs
I agree about the no good alternatives at the moment. However Nuno is a stop gap, we all know it, i'm sure he does as well and if results turn to shit and we hit bottom half of the table and/or a better alternative becomes available he'll be gone. He may potentially last the season if we hovver around 6th or 7th and no decent manager pops up but no way will he be our manager next season. They'd be giving our season tickets away with boxes of cereal.

And now I've worked myself into a shoot about how we should go for Domenico Tedesco. I am ready to be disappointed if we don't get him now. Even if we get another good name in instead.
Just had a quick read up and he's had 2 biggish jobs @ 36 years old , half German and Italian as well.

And done decently too. Something obviously went wrong at Schalke when he got sacked (I've sent a message to a friend on twitter who follows Schalke to see if he knows anything about that). But as I understand it he only left Spartak because his family was still in Germany and he couldn't fly them in or leave the country to visit due to Covid.

He was apparently recruited for the Schalke job by the same guy who spotted the potential in Klopp and Tuchel and brought them to Mainz to start their careers.

If we want a young and exciting name he could be worth a gamble.

German coaches seem to be the way to go at the moment

They really do.

My German buddy got back to me and his response to what went wrong for him at Schalke was "Tedesco didn't fail, the club failed him". And a lot of Schalke fans speak about letting him go like how we talk about letting Poch go.

I like how he has multiple systems for how to defend and attack that his teams can switch between depending on how a game is going.

Adi Hutter looks like a phenomenal manager and not just because of the Bayern demolition. Plays hyper pressing, attacking football we would love. Most bundesliga teams play great football, that's where we should be looking.
Adolf Hutter is some name to swallow though, especially for a club like ours...

He isn't particularly fond of the name either as I understand it. His grandparents pushed for it because he had a uncle named that who died in his teens. It is why he goes by Adi professionally.

Or that is the story that I have been told at least.

Changed his name to Adi. Insane and unfair to pass on him because of his name.
Yeah yeah that'd nit-picking for sure, but you can bet on the trolls on Twatter to make fun of the name every time we lose. I have heard that he's a great coach, I hate Bundesliga though so I can't say that I've watched his matches (my knowledge of Favre for example is from his time at Nice, not BVB).

Why would he leave a team that can put 5 past BM, who put 7 past us?
Your mixing up Tedesco with Hütter. Hütter is the guy who just beat Bayern.

Tedesco was the manager of Schalke a few years back when he got them to second place in the table. He's most recently been a coach in Russia and got second play with Spartak Moscow before leaving them at the end of the season.

I know bugger all about Gallardo other than he is considered a superstar manager in South America for his attacking football and style of play and wanted across Europe. Might be a gamble but fuck why not take it in this nothing season.
