The Beale and end all? Column 17:25 - Jun 1 with 16108 viewsNorthernr

In addition to this free to read - great interview just dropped on the Patreon with a guy who's written a book about the Gerrard/Beale tactical approach at Rangers.

Sir, you have outdone yourself here! Getting that interview before Beale was even officially announced, I can imagine you rolling the dice in anticipation. Really looking forward to listening.

Fantastic Clive.
I'm really excited about this guy - like you, he was the one that immediately piqued my interest. I do think a lot of the issues you talk about in terms of our board exist at almost every club. Every owner has expectations and ambitions and demands. Agree with you that merely the fact he's agreed to come here must mean he feels confident in the structure.
He'll be gone by November, right?

Bare bones.

Great, informative read - thank you Clive. This is a bold appointment with plenty of risk, but then if there was a coach with no downsides at all he wouldn't come to QPR, would he? And the potential upsides here are very exciting indeed.

I'm maybe being wildly optimistic, but I have far fewer worries about a repetition of Warburton's inability to manage up, or deal with conflict, than you seem to. Warburton's an extremely smart and thoughtful guy, but he also has a pretty pronounced combative streak too, as you know better than most!

I don't get the impression that Beale would react the way Warburton did to your infamous overdraft comment, for example: he seems to be far more collaborative and collegiate in outlook. Hopefully that'll put him in a much better position to manage the inevitable frictions that come with QPR being QPR.

3 years is a bold move by the club, don't think we've given a managerial contract out like that for a while. I'm quite excited by this, feels different and quite bold which is not what we usually do

I think offering less than 3 years on what's clearly a developmental role would look a bit odd tbf. If you're gonna talk the talk then you need to back it up

Not sure if someone's already dug this out elsewhere, but if anyone is interested in Michael Beale's former website mentioned early on in the interview then here's a historic snapshot:

I sense you're really quite excited by this appointment Clive, and I am too.

In theory, Beale appears to have exactly what we need at this point in time. Can he deliver? We'll see, but we'll all need to give him the time and space to do it.

Is this the first time a new gaffer has been officially announced as Head Coach rather than Manager? It underlines its significance to the club's structure.

As one of those who voted for MW to leave (even though I didn't really understand why I felt like that at the time), this appointment today is exactly what I had in mind to take the club forward.
I'm sure new player funding will have been agreed for Michael and looking forward to see who his coaching team will be.

This is all well and good but just what is Beale playing at? He’s yet to announce the signing of this Archer chap…. Sort it out!!

Fair play to the Rs…. This fella seems intelligent, respectful and engaging. That’s two in a row who seem decent charecters
Rare praise to the Board from me

Cherish and enjoy life.... this ain't no dress rehearsal

Thanks Clive.

I can't believe how exciting I find this appointment. Especially as I'd not heard of him this time last week!

It may not work, but I think this is the right direction for us to travel. Welcome Michael & good luck.

Good listen thanks - the Rangers fella clearly a fan of him which seems to be an eerily consistent theme.

In the podcast on the Beale thread I noticed he talked about having 'lieutenants' for the three areas of the pitch. Wonder if he'll take that approach with us.

Cheers Clive, I've been really excited by this appointment and I was hoping that you would bring me down from my high expectations to a more reasonable expectation because It's the hope that hurts isn't it?

Seriously I really appreciate the article because it's grounded in the truth, I bet you're excited by your interview with him. QPR have certainly given you a contrast of managers to interview

This is surely a good appointment.
Beale it seems is in for the long term underlined by a 3-year deal.
He fits in with the necessary philosophy of the club with so much money being pumped in by the owners each month to keep us as 'alive'.
Develop the youngsters and sell - and repeat - and eventually we may reach the so-called promised land.
Yes it may go wrong but let's face it any appointment can go wrong.
It's a perfect follow-up to the Warbs years.
I was always a fan of Warbs.
He had excellent principles and brought stability to our club.
And most of us would thank him for that - especially for 2021.
But now it's time to move on.
Beale can follow up that stability - and over the next 3 years improve the squad and eventually challenge for a top six spot.
Any earlier will be a bonus.
However I'm surprised Beale has chosen us.
He surely could have gone to a club that had lots more money to buy/loan players in addition to him developing youngsters.
Without doubt he's seen something that has whet his appetite - the new training ground as an example.
To develop players though it seems - is his pride and joy.
But it's going to be a tough task.
Over the next few days it will be interesting to see whether he brings in any of his own backroom staff or whether he will keep what is already at the club.
Maybe that was part of his discussions with Les?
Regardless it's a brave decision by the club.
I salute them for that.
Beale has a coaching CV that one day England might come knocking at the door especially if he succeeds at Loftus Road and beyond.
He seems a great communicator in all the videos I've seen and heard.
Communicating - not just with the players - but all the staff.
To be synchronised from top to bottom at the club - that's surely the way forward.
I'm thrilled by the appointment.
As he says on the offy there'll be some tough times.
But I'm really hopeful and energised.
Already looking forward to the new season.

I’m still of the opinion it was a big mistake letting MW go. This is a really difficult job and I think, on the whole, he was as good as we could expect, and better equipped than most to deal with it. That said, the deed having been done, trying to not let it cloud my judgement, the best way I can think to describe this appointment is ‘bold’. He’s clearly a very well regarded coach, clearly loves and lives his job, but management is a totally different challenge requiring a different skill set. He may be up to it, he’s very impressive, but it’s a gamble, especially here. I hope it works out for him because then it will have worked out for the club.

Credit to whoever identified him though. At the very least it shows the club is trying hard to get it right. I said on another thread it would be nice if we appointed someone no one outside of football had never heard of but turned out to have done a great job at a similar club in similar circumstances. They’ve done the first part and, in fairness, although he hasn’t had this sort of job before, he seems to have made a success of every job he’s had, so he’s got as good a chance as any. Best of luck to him.

I'm rather intrigued that Andy Belk and the recruitment team were key to identifying candidates for the top job. I don't recall this being the case for previous appointments.

I have no issue with this at all with this as it seems entirely sensible to apply the same search criteria for managers/first team coaches as players. I just wonder if it's the norm?

I thought I read somewhere that he was going for an interview with Charlton and we nabbed him? Or something.

Recruitment remains vital now. No matter how good the coach, if he doesn't have the players to enact his ideas, he will struggle. Let's not forget we're down to Bonne and Dykes again up front and Kakay and Niko as full backs.

We also have a very light squad and a very light budget to play with. I like that we've gambled and I like that we have a forward looking, young coach well respected by some pretty big hitters around the game, but we still have a hell of a lot of work to do this summer.

For me, a big sale of Dickie coupled with Eze to Newcastle for a sell on fee in the next month would be the ideal kick off.

And I hope that we all give him time, he may well need a whole heap of that...

Can we go out yet?

Seem to recall a certain Mr Gordon Jago referred to himself as that.

There’s a 2 and a 3 in the year, all he needs now is a Bowles/Givens/Thomas and we’re laughing.
