    That's for any manager.
    I know you are mate I was just piggy backing off your point to make my own.

    I see the Post has used the services of Google translate to offer us this surreal version of an interview by AK:
    "Imagine what it is to train a club like Forest, but I started to see things that are no longer affecting me but they could touch the squad and I decided to step aside because I saw that if I left the club I still had time to sign players in the winter market with a new coach and get to the play-offs."

    Sulky twat. Glad he fucked off as it's lead to the much better coach we have now.

    Not as long as that Scottish manager we employed twice. What was his name?

    yes but he took Boro up once

    (let's not forget he also took them down again, pretty much, and was arguably a year late getting them up).

    It's also such a good barometer, promotion... Remind me again who got WBA promoted twice?

    As much as I realise that you are some kind of adult, I do have to ask ... you realise that's not how it works, right ?

    Being a Forest fan is one long fight against people who once disagreed with you on an internet forum.

    It pretty much all stems from Keith not being able to handle Mo Farah being the greatest British sportsman of all time.

    To be fair to Karanka, he took on a team going nowhere for donkeys years & finally had us in the mix. The defensive turnaround was pretty eyecatching too.

    Spent some dough & spiky as fuck, although subjective, what he did here certainly suggested to me he's an above average football manager.

    Twinkle twinkle little star, what you say is what you are.

    I think it's fair to say that AK's been linked with a few jobs since he left us, and not really got a look in with any of them. Whereas the general consensus was "AK won't struggle for work".

    Fact is, he has. Remember he walked from us and he won't have been paid for just under a year now. Whilst I'm sure that he's not short of a bob or two, rich folk tend to have rich bills to pay and I'm not buying that he'll have been happy having so long out of work unpaid now.

    I don't think he's a bad manager, I just think - much like McClaren - the hype was FAR greater than what we got. When he left us that hype still carried a lot of weight, with the "won't struggle for work, high pedigree etc." mantras still chuntering. The lack of interest in him suggests otherwise.

    Are you his agent or family? If neither, how do you know any of this, other than just imagining it?

    OK then, so he hasn't been linked with any jobs. Which says his stock is even worse than I suggested.

    In the press he's been linked with Hull, Huddersfield, Boro and now Stoke off the top of my head. May be more too.

    Missing the point Alf which was he didnt work for a while before us, and he only came back into it for a club and situation he wanted to be in. So much so that when the situation turned out to not be too his liking, he walked. Hell not bother coming back at all unless its perfect.

    Very different to the poisonous dwarf whos pissed so many people off hes virtually unemployable, despite his obvious talents, and yet who is still deluded enough to think hes too good for pretty much anything below Rangers. Dark forces my arse.

    Oh FFS.

    Come on Alf, we all know that local press linking someone with a job means next to nothing. No one rally has any idea how many jobs his agent has out him forward for, it may be every job out there it may also be none at all.

    We'll see. Not sure he can be that picky when each week his bank account is reading X000 out, 0 in. Personally I think he's proven too expensive & too prickly for most Champ clubs to take on.

    A manager who walked from 2 jobs in a row when they sat in the top 7 of the league, and after he spent a fortune on a plethora of players too, isn't something I'd want to take a risk on.

    I think that will be deemed far too big a gamble for most Champ clubs now.

    If he was still getting a payout from us, I'd be inclined to accept he's fine picking and choosing.

    As it is he's still very rich bills to pay, and no wage coming in to cover that. So I'm more inclined to believe that these articles are his agent touting him about tbh.

    But you have no clue what he's doing on a day to day basis. He maybe earning money from sponsors for promotional work or other consulting.

    Isn't that England's Brave Andy Murray? Or Lewis Hamilton?
