    Hardly a fair comparison though. If a Celtic manager doesn't have a higher win % than the Bournemouth manager then we've entered a parallel reality.

    Yeah not a fair comparison in terms of that, but just like any stats, they can be used to prove or disprove whatever you want them to.

    Could argue Rafa’s win rate only so good as he’s managed Liverpool, Inter, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Napoli, compared with Dyche at Burnley or Moyes which includes Everton, West Ham and Real Sociedad.

    Rafa's win rate at Newcastle is 42.5%, higher than Dyche and higher than Moyes at every club bar Preston and United (which is a given).

    Anyway, Rafa is comfortably the standout candidate. Hopefully we're doing everything in our power to get him.

    Which also includes a season in the Championship with a team miles too good for that level, but I agree Rafa is the standout candidate. That being said I won’t be holding my breath waiting for the powers that be to appoint him.

    Hoping we have at least asked AVB the question. A young attack-minded manager with the silverware to show for it. He is my first preference followed by Rafa.

    The potential realism of these options at the moment are probably questionable, however.

    In the unlikely event we get Rafa Benitez, I will quite happily admit I was wrong. We disagree over many of the candidates and strongly disagree about Moyes; but I 100% agree with you that Rafa is definitely an outstanding manager and a good man to boot.

    I refuse to get my hopes up.

    Neither can I, but I live in vague hope.

    Moyes would be an anti-climax.

    Or ecstatic when it turns out to be Pep, with Desmond giving him millions in backhan, er completely coincidentally giving him millions in fees as a consultant for one of his other companies. :fear:
