it dosnt work

well it hasnt in the prem so far lets look at a few examples

that hutchings bloke who managed wigan last season = fail

sammie lee who ended up managed bolton = fail

tony adams pompy just lost 1-4 at home to struggleing west ham = fail

i dont know if its just be but it seems to be some trend that assistant mangers just cant manage the club even though they may know it inside out

anyone care to prove me wrong?:cool:

Stuart Pearce did relatively well when he first took over at Citeh, but it all went downhill pretty rapidly. I think they try and emulate what the previous manager was doing and don't try and stamp their own mark on the team and that's where they go wrong.

It's better to bring in someone who is new to the club and can look at the squad with a fresh set of eyes.

I dont think Steve Mclarn was given enough credit for what he did at middlesborough . He won them there first ever trophy in the league cup and also made the uefa cup final .

As for stuart pearce yes he did well for half a season and he was rightfully given his chance . But he was not backed by the board was given little cash to improve the team . And was only given money in january of his last season when he brought samaras in which turned into a disater .

Jose Mourinho was an assistant manager at Benfica before becoming the main man.

I'm sure you'll say it was in the Portuguese league and you're referring to the prem, but lots of managers have cut their teeth as assistant managers first.

David Moyes was assistant manager at Preston, before moving up.
Rafa was assistant manager at Real Madrid B.

Steve McClaren did OK at Boro, before the England fiasco.

Phil Brown was an assistant to Sam Allardyce.

Well, theres not many example of it working that I can think of.

I think zuco hit the nail on the head when he said;

Although, most of the examples I would say is not because they've moved up, but perhaps because they're not good enough to be managers themselves?

yes not all coaches can make it as managers but some do !

Plus if all coaches cant be managers

Its a fact not all managers can coach

Sven , mourinho , Boothroyd

all of these have coachs do the coaching they just pick the team .
