People are not harping on or moaning, they are simply voicing their concerns that Henry has no experience, which is an understandable reaction of any fan. If Henry gets the job and begins with a string of wins then I'm sure the fans will soon get behind him, however if it goes the other way you can expect a lot of told you so comments coming your way. Replacing an experienced manager with one who has no experience must be seen as a move that carries risk even in your eye's, if you would only take a moment to look past his huge footballing name maybe you would spot that.

If a if a relativly unknown player with all his badges and no experience took the managers job would you be equally excited? Nobody is against Henry, he could in fact turn out to be a great manager but that doesn't change the fact that at this point he is a unknown entity in that department so fans are a little worried.

An whad did we achieve with the most experienced manager in the divison, in 2yrs mate iim confused .

I get that but we can't get any worse than bruce, the players will get a buzz if henry gets appointed, who wouldn't want too play for him as a manager, yes its a risk but a risk worth taking, i'm not worried at all bout experience its so over used now adays just like the stat we had so muvh possession, it will be a good appointment in my view.

In his one full season at the club with very little funding, and despite huge personal trauma he came within one game of taking us up. Maybe not a huge achievement but one that bettered all the teams below us. So unless Henry takes us up in one season then in your own assessment of judging the situation he too will be a huge failure.

There are plus points and minus points with every manager,
Henry's minus points is lack of experience that's a no-one brainer,
Plus points he will attract better players with his contacts within the game,
These are the 2 main points,
I'm willing to let him prove he is the man.
He has to start somewhere why not at a big club who have struggled over the past few years and needs a major kick up backside,
I'm not saying he will succeed but I'm more than happy to see him succeed,
The last couple of years bruce has had loads of fans wanting him gone but now that Henry has being linked for his job bruce seems to be flavour of the month with fans and instead want him to stay,
It was always on the cards that with a owner they would want there own choice of manager so let them decide who they want and let's see if there judgement is right or wrong,
End of day we all want what's best for club so let's enjoy the new investment in club and get behind whoever is in charge,

I agree Mainbob, If Henry comes to the club then he will have my full support. He was a fantastic player that put his all into the game and I am certain he would do the same being a manager. If the new owners choose that route to take then I will be happy to go along with, as you say his name carries a lot of weight so in that respect it would be great for the club. I'm sure he will give everything to achieve success but there will be huge expectations put upon him from the word go from both owners and fans, the question is will he be able to cope with that? Having said that if he can get past the first couple of months relativly unscathed that will give him huge confidence and he may go on to big things.

Don't get the 'can get better players with all his contacts'. Other than Arsenal's lightweight kids who can he realistically call that Bruce doesn't likely already have a number/ email for after all his years in the game?

25 Jul 2018 15:23:27
Would think Barcelona and juventus would be a decent shout for any cast offs?
Plus many other clubs in europe.

All I miss seeing on this thread is people disregarding Bruce's contacts. Bruce's contact book is probably 5 times the size of Henrys. The man is respected by the top managers in the Orem mourinho trusting him with some of his best young talent for example not to mention the players who want to come and play for him again snodgrass for example. As people have said their is pros and cons to each manager.

In my opinion we don't need a new manager coming in 2 weeks before the end of the transfer window to assess the squad before paying a premium for any late deal he can muster up. Personally I say back Bruce this season and if he doesn't come up with the goods we try someone like Henry say January or next season.
