When will clubs learn that good player doesn’t equal good manager.

Shrek has been appointed….

I’d be interested to hear the views of the Plymouth contingent who frequent these boards.

At least he correctly forecast the score in today's FA Cup Final whilst acting as a pundit for the Beeb. There's hope for Plymouth yet!

Presumably Plymouth didn't ask for a reference from Birmingham who now compete in division 1.
I hope it works out for Plymouth but I fear for them, another difficult season coming up perhaps?

Birmingham got 0.67 points per game under Rooney, over the course of a season that would be 30/31 and certain relegation.  Sacking John Eustace was a ludicrous decision, and Birmingham got everything they deserved, I suspect Plymouth will go the same way.

Rather than going for a big name ex-player, Sheffield Wednesday went for a 34 year old with no previous management experience, and he averaged 1.43 points per game at a team who were rock bottom when he took over.  Sooner or later clubs will realise that top level playing experience doesn't necessarily mean they will be a top level manager

Just look at Klopp… didn’t have a stellar playing careeer (only Mainz for 325 games) and was never capped by Germany…

Exactly, lots of top managers didn't have stellar playing careers.  Mourinho, Tuchel, Wenger, Houlier, Sacchi, Nagelsman, etc.  And probably the most notable of all, Carlos Alberto Parreira who won the World Cup having never played a minute of professional football.

Initial reaction was what you’d expect - shock, disbelief, concern etc. That seems to be receding a bit though - some eye catching loan signings from Europe and Rooney making all the right noises locally, and calling us “Argyle” already which is crucial.

Of course, not a ball kicked yet. It’s worth noting that the bookies rated only Oxford as more likely to be relegated even before he arrived, and that we survived only on the last day of last season. So expectations are not high in any event.

We move on…
