Deschamps

Recommended Posts

I see France won which as I understand it means Deschamps won't be under pressure to take that job.

 

I'm warming to the idea of him coming here (now that I've realised we have to get on with life however painful).

 

Anyone with an insight into his CV/track record/temperament/style?

Coaching career

 

Monaco

After retiring as a player, he went into football management. He was the head coach of AS Monaco in France's Ligue 1, leading Monaco to the French League Cup title in 2002/2003 and to its first UEFA Champions League final in 2004. He resigned on 19 September 2005 after a poor start to the season, and disagreement with club's president.

 

Juventus

 

On July 10, 2006, Deschamps was named head coach of Juventus, after Fabio Capello resigned in the wake of the match-fixing scandal.

Deschamps' first game in charge of Juventus was highly successful when Juventus beat Alessandria 8-0. But poor results followed after Juventus was knocked out in the 3rd round of the Coppa Italia and the 1-1 draw at Rimini on the first day of the league season. But the following 3 games in which Juventus beat Vicenza 2-1, Crotone 0-3, and Modena 4-0 made it look like Deschamps had everything under control. Also Deschamps helped Juventus to win their first competition since being relegated (due to the match fixing scandal) which was the Birra Moretti Cup in which Juventus beat Inter Milan 1-0 and Napoli in a penalty shoot out.

 

He led Juventus to its return to Serie A, which was confirmed on May 19, 2007 with a 5-1 away win at Arezzo. On May 26, several media announced Deschamps had resigned as Juventus head coach following several clashes with the society; this was however denied by Juventus itself a few hours later. Later that evening after the game against Mantova which confirmed Juve as Serie B champions, Deschamps confirmed to the media that he had indeed resigned. The news was then made official by Juventus a few hours later.

This guy just does not get my juices flowing. A bit like getting cold porridge for breakfast.

That's probably something to do with your age Snakey, nothing else.

I would love Deschamps and I would have liked him in January - however obviously Keegan was far better!

 

I think he would do a good job here and would be miles ahead of the people touted thus far - Poyet, Ince, Shearer and Wise.

So he's left two clubs due to problems with the board? Sounds perfect.

 

Basically it would be silly and boring to not get a manager in who is a perpetual war with the board. ;)

I've always though Deschamps would be a great manager for us.

Sadly if he was to take the job now I would find it hard to have any respect for him. Whether it is true or not, the perception that he is nothing more than Wise's yes man would always be there.

Is there any bastard available who won't be accused of being a Wise yes man? Just curious.

Yup and we might end up having a manager for a complete season, which would be complete and utter madness. :panic:

I get the shakes if we don't part with a manager every few months. ;)

It's tradition that we have to sack a manager directly after the transfer window closes at least one a year. Don't mess with heritage man.

Keegan, as charismatic and effective at motivating players, had many obvious flaws. he's been great at stabilising and moulding teams into sides that play great football, but are not consistent as the proper big teams.

 

I think Deschamps has a great level of determination, and would be (like keegan ) a great asset if he were allowed to run things his own way. it won't happen that way under the current regime.
