I must own up to quite liking Dyche. His interviews are always honest and open - and he says what he feels. He comes across to me as being a 'fan' as much as a manager - and reacts/speaks accordingly.

If we're opening out to those outside the Prem, then Tuchel. Absolutely classless when we played them off the pitch twice under him, couldn't bring himself to utter one positive word about us. Was a vile match made in heaven (or hell) at the time

Maybe unfairly but Steve Cooper Just feel with given £300m to bring in 40 players should not be bragging about how well he has done to stay in the league. With that amount of players assume many are not in squad or have had contracts paid up and left. Plus he bought Brewster for £25m when at Swansea. No manager should be near relegation given that backing.
Cooper had Brewster on loan at Swansea. Sheffield United splashed out £25m on Brewster. Money well spunked.

Arteta comes across as a bit entitled, but his team plays entertaining football;
I don't much like Emery, possibly because he beats us, but possibly because of his 'Guiliani dye job' type hair;
Iraola hasn't made much of an impression on me yet, but seems like he wants to play football;
Frank smiles too much for me to trust him. I could end up in a cult;
Kompany's been a bit nothing. Surely he won't be around for much longer;
Poch has always been a bit dour. For that reason, the current Chelsea job seems to suit him;
Roy's alright for a Palace manager;
Dyche is a hypocrite and a massive whinger, but he's an excellent coach;
Silva is bland, his teams are stereotypical of Portugese football, some flair, but also some dark arts;
Klopp is mostly fun, great at his job, but a very sore loser;
Rob Edwards seems alright;
Guardiola is, like Klopp mostly fun, a very sore loser, but he's also the best football coach of the last two decades;
Ten Hag is the latest in a line of interchangeable Man U managers who look like they're about to burst into tears;
Howe is smug. He's also a master of the dark arts and is too clever for the Hendersonesque 'it's all just about football' dodge to work;
Cooper's a whinger and a blamer;
Heckingbottom is and always will be Chris Wilder's assistant, even when he isn't;
Postecoglu seems a lot of fun;
David Moyes is just David Moyes, efficient, long suffering, but seems sound enough;
Gary O'Neill, on the quiet, seems surpsingly good.

It's Howe isn't it?

The only ones I have any real dislike for are Arteta, who seems like an absolute ****, and Dyche who is just gross and dislikeable.

Makes me wonder how he'd describe this thing of beauty worn by his no 9:

Howe - smugness.
Dyche - nastiness.
Emery - thuggish football
Moyes - not really sure why.
Ten Hag - never seems to be his fault and doesn’t seem to credit the opposition ever

Arteta is a f***ing prick. Klopp is an irritating prick. Guardiola is a weird prick. Howe is a patronising prick, with an air of posh entitled schoolboy bully about him. Four absolute knobheads.
I quite like Guardiola and Klopp on that list, as much as I am willing myself not to but have had to admit defeat!

Agree about Howe, like Christian Horner, tries to be one of the lads but he's a demi-posh public school Karen.

There's no one in the current crop that comes close to the likes of Pardew or Adkins, although at a push I'd say Ten Hag thinks he's a lot better than he is and is continuously being bailed out by individual goals. His team play and tactics is bang average at best.

For me no one in sport comes close to Christian Horner of F1's Red Bull for smugness and arrogance.

Klopp - stupid toothy grin. Irritating fist pump celebrations. Very sore loser and incredibly hypocritical when it benefits his team.
