    Default Philippe Montanier


    There we have it, after 15 weeks without a manager we have a new head coach, Mr Phillippe Montanier.

    Finally we have someone in place, exciting times ahead!
    Let's get 'em.

    After ending his career as a goalkeeper, the Frenchman took charge of Boulogne in 2004 and, during his final season, secured promotion to Ligue 1 for the first time in the club’s history.

    A brief spell in charge of Valenciennes followed before Montanier was appointed as head coach at Spanish side Real Sociedad in 2011. He exceeded all expectations in the 2012-13 season as he guided the club to a fourth-place finish in La Liga and subsequent qualification for the Champions League.

    At the expiration of his contract with Sociedad, Montanier took over the reigns at French club Rennes. During his three-year spell with the Ligue 1 side, Montanier steered them to the Coupe de France final in 2014.

    Would Fawaz really spell his name incorrectly?

    We need Jock to disparage this before I'll believe it.

    Pretty good track record you have to say. I think it says a lot about a manager that he stays in jobs for a long time and has only been sacked once. I think we have done pretty well here. I look forward to it!

    Interesting to read that the main criticism of Montanier during his last job was that he was forever changing his line-up. I mean, the last thing we'd want is some kind of 'tinkerman', right?

    I think I'm most impressed by what he did at Boulogne. They would have spent no money doing what they did at a club like that. That is down to coaching ability.

    Worked with some of Europe's top talents like Griezmann, Vela, Ntep and Dembele with supposedly contrasting results but this guy has the ability to make clubs play above themselves in the top flights he has been at. Again must have some coaching ability.

    To get a coach of that calibre is quite the coup.

    Somebody who's managed Real Sociedad only 3 or 4 years ago to a 4th placed finish in La Liga.

    Let's do this.

    I am properly excited by the new structure - the DoF, our ew coach, etc.
    I feel good times are on their way.

    Theres been more inspirational names chucked about to have really got the juices flowing. That said, this fella has a decent record & has the look of someone not to be fucked about with.

    best of luck to him, he has a nucleus of a very decent football playing side here, could well be the man to get a tune out it.

    Good pedigree, snappy dresser and a different approach.

    Can only be a good thing.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    A promising head coach, some management structure above him, Cohen and Assombalonga fit, coming out of embargo and fresh investment coming into the club. Is it safe to feel slightly optimistic?
