Are they a bigger draw than Crawley? Oldest team in the world and all that. Good luck to him.

Getting them up to and establishing them in League One is a good challenge to take on for him.

Greater fanbase, stadium capacity right at the top of that level of football and probably higher wage budget as well.

Brilliant news. Always have a lot of time for Harry Kewel and hope he’s a great success at Notts County. It’s a grand old English club that need life breathing into it - great that they have a star name and talented manager at the helm now.

With a new owner, a soon to be coming Technical Director, sounds like Kewell has joined an exciting project.

From the article now moved to https://www.nottscountyfc.co.uk/news/2018/september/kewell-appointed-manager/

"As part of the restructure, Darren Fletcher will be standing down from his role as vice-chairman."
That's not the Man Utd Darren Fletcher though.

I’m keeping a close eye on Harry Kewell’s progress at Notts County. I spend time now and then in that part of the world and intend to check out a game or two at Meadow Lane.

Watched his first press conference for the upcoming game against Exeter and also his joining interviews - seriously, he has kicked onto another level both in terms of the club he is at and the way he presents himself.

They’ve also just appointed Paul Hart, who helped bring him up when he was a new kid in the UK, and Hart was involved in promotion at his last club.

Kewell is now building an impressive management profile. This role at Notts County will be critical to his potential being considered for top jobs in the next 3-4 years. From interviews he’s given and those from the Notts County chairman, there seems to be a long term 3-4 year vision to replicate Bournemouth’s rise through the leagues. If he can replicate half of that then he will be in the running for Premier League management roles IMO. He’s played at the very highest level, an icon in his homeland, learnt from the best managers (Benitez at Liverpool, Rijkaard at Galatasaray for example), building grassroots football knowledge, and has the resilience of someone that has had to work abroad in different countries. All reports show he also has a voracious work ethic and passionate about coaching, and less interested in the overall management side. This fits in well with the modern technical director model. He’s also young so has plenty time on his side.

Notts County seem to now have strong leadership and rebranded themselves well. 20k capacity modern stadium too. They’re going places and Kewell is a man to watch now. Impressed.

Lost 5-1 against Exeter and got sent off. They're bottom of the league on 1 point.

I like Harry... but turns out you get a lot more protection as a player than manager.

I wonder if he still feels like this... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/football/45997434

Top player loved Harry his diving header against Birmingham City springs to mind. He was desperately unlucky with injuries I always thought a section of the fanbase where too harsh on him like they are to Sturridge now kind of. Also was a big fan of Maxi, Riera, Yossi etc

Sad for Harry Kewell it went belly up at Notts County. He was in the job for five seconds.

The owner does seem a bit of a plonker though from recent reports I read - I made a mistake in a previous post suggesting they appear to have strong leadership.

Hope Harry gets another gig soon. Seems passionate about being a good manager.

Well this post hasn't aged well :D

The bolded has no bearing on anything a person will do as a manager/coach.

Coaching and management is a separate talent (and it IS a talent)

Being a high level player and having played under high level managers has virtually no correlation to performance as a manager or coach. Even brief early success has no indication of the future. Some managers/coaches are better suited to certain levels than they or anyone else would like, while others can only ever work with elite players and will flounder in any environment less than that.

Yer bastard calling me out like that ;D ... Indeed, the post hasn’t aged well lol

I still hope that Kewell has a career in management. He came across as being so passionate and enthusiastic to make it as a manger, and I always had a soft spot for him when he played for us.

Should never have left Crawley for Notts County in the first place. I can understand most managers down there making that move, but I doubt Kewell needed the pay rise like a lot of them would.
And if the rain stops, and everything's dry.. she would cry, just so I could drink tears from her eyes.

I was just joshing ye, mate :)

But there's no way of predicting how a person will do in management. And playing career is certainly no predictor, nor is "passion" or "enthusiasm".

It's a talent, like any other facet of sport, and you have to see how coaches do before we can guess. Talented coaches and managers usually have a good impact early on, usually at places with lesser resources, although occasionally with the best resources too. But true coaching and managing talent is usually seen with individuals working with the least resources but getting the most out of them.

Hindsight is 20/20 mate - Notts County are a proper football club.

Its not hindsight though. Kewell was settled at Crawley and was relatively comfortable, with the support of the fans etc.

Notts County on the other hand are known to not give managers much time and have lofty expectations. They are currently on their 14th permanent manager since 2010 and their seventh since 2015.

Well I don’t blame him for taking the challenge as it’s a big step up from Crawley.

I hope he bounces back and gets another gig, as he did a fine job at Crawley.

Of course mate. And I agree with you on all counts.

But from what I could see from his time at Crawley, he looked like he was forming a solid body of work as a manager. Coupled with his strong work ethic, passion for the game and surely having learnt from some great managers (albeit as a player), you would hope he’d get another chance soon to prove his managerial credentials. I hope so anyway as he seems a talented and likeable guy.
