    Don't see the point for a young manager/coach in his first job to go the international route. Little time with the players, little continuity. His ultimate goal is surely to get a top level club job, a great spell with Wales will not make him a candidate for the Utd job. Keeps his name in the reckoning if he does well but surely he needs a day to day role if he wants to develop as a coach?

    Anyone else find it odd he does punditry for ITV on England games? Wales were usually playing on the same night!:lol:

    Not sure he'll have enough details for this job tbh.

    See your point but it didn't do Mark Hughes any harm.

    Think it's a nice start to cut his teeth so to speak.

    Found that bit disrespectful to be honest. You would never see an ex England legend going to a wales game on the same night.

    Easy job if he takes it.

    Next qualification is for the Euros, which now they've ludicrously extended the tournament, it's almost impossible not to qualify unless you manage a San Marino type country.

    I think it's still a great move. The pressure in Wales national team isn't as madness as English football club. And also this is going to test Giggs ability as a manager to set up his team. If he shows that he plays good football & getting decent results with this current Wales national team, more low or mid table PL football clubs will be interested in him and then that's when he will be tested whether he can build a team and improve his man management.

    Hughesy got into management via the Wales job IIRC. Not a bad way to get on the ladder. Good luck to Giggsy if he gets it I say.

    If he wants to be a manager it’s about time he gets back into the game.

    Roy Keane used to do England games before he was ROI assistant.

    Why's this in the Utd forum?

    No disrespect to Giggs as a Utd legend, but it's got feck all to do with us.

    Don't see why wouldn't they give it to Giggsy until the end of the season.

    I should support someone else because I don't think Ryan Giggs going for the Wales job has anything to do with Man Utd...?

    Get a grip mate.

    The guy needs to get into club management, he's an idiot if he selects this as his first job.

    Nobody wants to give him a job at the level he wants to manage so he's really an idiot because he won't drop his ego/standards.

    I blame spell check and my dislike of proofreading. But really what would be considered a good job.

    Knowing how these FAs operate they will probably give it to Bellamy or someone else.

    Would be a great job for him. We're a decent team, he wouldn't have to worry about the day-to-day stuff of club management while he learns the ropes.

    He could still keep his eye out for big PL jobs. Brian Clough was once asked to do the Wales job part time while managing Forest. Reckon Giggsy could do two at once.

    This is a really good opportunity for him. He feels he's better suited to the top end of the game. Wales have some quality players including a real elite player in Bale and have some promising players coming through.

    They have easily the best squad of players that Giggs will get for a first job. I really hope he gets it.

    If he gets the job I think it would be a good career move for him. More exposure than managing in the championship.

    Agree with many others on this thread. If he wants to try his hand in management he should take on a club. I think the Championship would be a good start for him. However I don't think he's management material tbh. He is one of those ex players (an incredibly good one at that) who I believe is restricted to being a good assistent and nothing more.

    Fact is that he’s not at United in any capacity so I don’t care where he manages or what level it’s on, I am much more interested in seeing how he fares as a manager in general regardless of who he’s in charge of.

    Until the day comes that it’s proven Giggs isn’t good enough to manage us there’s always going to be talk of it just as there was early in the managerial careers of Mark Hughes, Steve Bruce and Roy Keane and as one of our biggest legends of all time it’s the same for Giggs.

    I want to see what his approach will be, how he’ll set up formation wise, his tactics, whether he’s an all out attack manager, whether he plays with flying wingers and whether he can project that all on to what would be considered a level of success.

    Wales don't play friendlies themselves anymore do they? So they can shoot up the UEFA rankings.

    I doubt this will get him any closer towards managing a decent PL club. Wales doesn't have the individual quality to play good football, so he'd have to do exceptionally well to be noticeable.
    To me taking this job would send the signal that he would rather take the easy road to nowhere than put in the necessary effort for having a good coaching career.
