Am I missing something here as to why people are seemingly so satisfied with bignot?

A manager who albeit with a low budget took five years to get a team promoted out of a league full of part time pub sides, and in fact his first place finish was the only time Solihull ever looked liked getting promoted. Also, he does not even have a years experience managing in a league that we slated for being of a terrible quality and couldn't wait to get out of? He has done one fairytale-esk me nice guy newspaper article for a newspaper and we are suddenly believing that he is a man that is in it for the love of the game and will be more determined than anyone else? I'm sorry but this is a man who before the last 15 games has only managed a part time women's football team and a men's team in the second tier of non-league where he is up against managers of much less quality and teams which are semi professional!

I am not saying for one second that people like mark robins are managers that we should be going for? But why they are so less desirable than Marcus bignot I do not know, yeah we can say they are on their way down, but is our preferred dream candidate Adkins also not on his way down? Least some of these so called 'on their way down' league managers have experience against more tactically astute managers, professional and organised teams, and have experience of managing big (bigger than Solihull) football clubs. And for example mark robins has spent the majority of his career taking over teams who are in the bottom four of the league and rapidly taking them numerous points above relegation places, this is in proper leagues with proper teams and managers,  Now I'm not saying we should be going for one of these Managers, but what I'm saying is that I cannot believe people are suddenly thinking someone like Marcus bignot is the messiah and so much better than some of these candidates.... You all want a foreword thinking ambitions appointment yet you want someone who has only
Managed women's football or in a semi professional men's league?

You need to name names then.


I'm not completely dismissing him but managers such as Dave Jones and Nigel Adkins have much more experience, Robbie Stockdale and Paul Groves have coached at a much higher level and Mark Robins has done a decent if not spectacular job at the clubs he's managed.

I agree with some of what you say. Think using Mark Robins as an alternative sort of dilutes your point though. Bignot if chosen is an unproven risk which may turn out to be inspired or a disaster. It was a very good article which serves Bignot well PR-wise. I'm sure if every prospective candidate had such a good piece written about them opinions would be a little more divided than they are.

Anyway we know little or nothing about who is in the running and what their personal back stories are to be so definitive in making Bignot the clear and obvious choice.

yeah bigdog I'm not saying we should get robins at all, just trying to make a point that I'm finding it difficult to see why bignot is being looked upon as a really good candidate by many yet other such managers with league experience, managing bigger clubs, against better managers and teams, in the second and third tiers are being made out to be terrible candidates, and although I wouldn't personally choose robins, he was in the bottom four with Coventry, then got them pushing for play offs, took over Barnsley bottom and finished nine points safe, did relatively well with a Huddersfield team with one of the lowest budgets in the league at the time, I'm just saying he's got poor teams getting points in good leagues and so have many other ex league managers so they cannot be looked upon as such bad candidates when someone like bignot is being made out to be fantastic. I would like to reiterate that robins would probably not be in my top three he's just an example! but if it were to big bignot id back him to the end as I would any gtfc manager
