Potential candidates to replace Babbel and my pros/cons on them:

Ernie Merrick
Pro: He wouldn't accept a caretaker's role but he would accept the job if its long term. He would have the resources to recruit players he wants I think we would see some stability and some style in our plays.
Cons: I don't think he will give youth players a chance and I am just not sure if he would consider coming to us.

Dean Heffernan 
Pros: He's done an amazing job with our W-League team, suffered his first loss against the Roar on Sunday but what he has instilled to our girls is amazing, bringing in high quality imports and able to integrate them into his system which looks very simple, if he were to coach our team, he would bring Michael Beauchamp across and would still prefer to have Labi there, all 3 players know what our culture is and know what it means to play for our team
Cons: the step up from W-League to A-League is massively different, Alen Stajcic, brilliant coach for women football but not doing too well with the Mariners and that's where the risk is for Heffernan. I don't know how he will be like under pressure but I think the job will be too big for him to fill 

Paul Okon
Pros: He plays a possession type football, like Popa and likes to keep the ball moving. He has a good eye for talent, he's very knowledgeable and will be very keen to play youth players
Cons: He was a dismal failure at CCM, won't last a season with us when things get hot, he's an NPL coach at best 

Kenny Lowe
Pros: He's a character and a good man-manager, like Ernie, he would have the luxury to recruit players he wants, signed some brilliant players at Perth. He would likely play some of our youth players.
Cons: He has struggled to get the best out of his players and his team have been inconsistent when he was manager at Perth, Popa has managed to fill those gaps for Perth and now Perth are one of the best teams in the A-League.

John Aloisi
Pros: After his stint with Heart, he took a break, learned to be a better coach, coaching Brisbane they became one of the best attacking teams in the league, he has somehow got the best out of Taggart and Maclaren. He is very likely to utilise our youth players.
Cons: He's short tempered, easily falls out with his coaching staff and club management. He doesn't deal well with pressure. He doesn't fit in well with our culture.

Harry Kewell
Pros: Coached overseas, did ok for Notts county despite some circumstances, he's a Westie boy, would have a good understanding of the Westie culture, Very likely to play youth players, has a huge hatred/dislike for Robbie Slater
Cons: Has no respect for the A-League, probably will not get the respect of the players, unlikely to last a season as coach.

Any other ones that worthy of a mention?

Scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of the names on that list but could we be any worse off than we are now?

I doubt it.

This season has been a ******* disaster with arguably our best squad ever. Heads need to roll.

I'm for playing dead / paralysis and comatose dreaming of two Derby wins to make it okay. Unpopular as my position is, it will become majority view if the other mob now starts suggesting (after deep thought) that Harry Kewell could be the answer. And that, it couldn't get worse. Ooo Em Gee

lol things have got that bad we are joking about replacing Babbel with a ******* scarecrow :D

 

 

 

Seriously though..I reckon the scarecrow has a plan at least...and we wouldn't have any bird issues, which would be useful for Melbourne away games...the more I think about it the more sense it seems to make!

I do wonder if the club looks at these threads. I like the thought of Babbel dipping in and out looking at this stuff :D

A few got mentioned on the fox pod the other day (though as options for Newcastle). 
Kewell was one. 

Others 
Brad Maloney
Mark Crittenden 
John Anastasiadis
Arthur Papas

Maloney - Seems comfortable in Malaysia, unlikely would want to come
Crittenden - Unlikely wants to coach A-League
Anastasiadis - poached by Ange to become his assistant at Yokohama
Papas - Unlikely wants to coach in the A-League

Why wouldn’t Crritenden want to coach a league level? 
 

there are only 9 professional coach gigs in Australia I’d assume an NPL coach would jump at it

Marco Kurz may be available by end of the day...

Nup - we've tried German (and Spanish) - time to go local. I wonder if Yoshi is old enough for his football manager's ticket.....

Add Wilkshere I honestly think he is worth a shout. I think its still early for Dean Heffernan give it another season with the girls may be able to make the step up.

The more managers others sack the better we are for sticking with Babbel because we're just that kinda of a club and I love being that kinda of a club.

Papas has been elevated to a higher role under Ange at Yokohama... so unlikely.

Dear Babbel,

It's time for you to **** off. And take that lame hat with you.

Dear Ange,

It's time for you to come back home to OZ.

A club that accepts failure and mediocrity in equal measure. That is on the back foot rather than being proactively on the front foot?

I like loyalty also and my other club Boro are like that..renowned for sticking by a manager. Woodgate was hopeless until late Nov and fans were calling for his head, now he is not doing so bad. But Steve Gibson (Boro chairman) can also be ruthless when needed. 

Lets see what directions MV and WSW take from here.

Victory are set to look at a local coach, so may take away a potential future coach for us
