    I would maybe think Karen Atkinson but she’s just taken the Sirens job.

    Please please please be Karen A – that would be amazing.  She’s got such a great netballing brain, and the respect of the players.

     

    Jess Thirlby’s free too tho I am not so excited about her – but maybe she could assist Karen??

    It won’t be Dan, he had his chance when he was appointed Eng U21 coach. I believe he lasted 2 weeks, or was it less?? and that was before the Thunderbirds job.

    To be fair, i think he loss than Eng role due to visa issues.

    Tracey will be tough to replace. Just look at the players she has brought through the UK netball pathways, HH, Cobden, Nat H. You could also add Cardwell and Jodie G because they have both stepped up a level.

    We have a LOT of raw talent, we need someone who can take them upto the next level.

    Hoping Greenway decides baby nos 2 isn’t a reason not to go for it!

    To be honest I’d be happy with either Greenway or Atkinson.

    They’ve done the hard yards with coaching Superleague teams and have had success in their own ways.

    I wouldnt be surprised to see an Australian coach.  So much talent there,  and doesn’t look like Lisa A will step down anytime soon.

    Maybe Wai wants it again?

    Me too….I can’t imagine anyone else who knows our established players and our up and coming talent as well as these two do! My worry with a coach from overseas is that they won’t have the same awareness of who has potential to step up.

    I really can’t see a NZ coach getting it, sorry but I don’t think they’re up to it. I reckon it will be an English coach. We don’t actually need an import coach these days, though Tanya Obst is probably the only one likely imo.

    You never know what goes on in the minds of the powers that be at England Netball though….Hopefully they’ll make Greenway an offer she can’t refuse!

    Well she has said it’s an offer you can’t turn down so maybe she won’t!

    Happy with either though.

    With two children to deal with, one a baby, surely that isn’t an option?  She won’t be able to give either side of her life full focus….how will she cope with all the travelling around the country?  Tracey goes to a lot of local training sessions:  that’s not easy when you’re toting a baby.

     

    Had forgotten about Tanya Obst – she’s been involved closely with Tracey and would be a good continuation of what Tracey has built….if she could be released by the Thunderbirds?

    England won’t be worrying about Tracey Neville stepping down: there’s a Netball World Cup to win

    If they wanted an international coach, I’d be seeing if Ruth Aitken was available.  She brought several young players into the NZ squad and turned them into superstars, and she knows how to get the most out of her experienced players.

    Obst is the current assistant coach of England.

    But she just took me on head coach role of Tbirds.

    Its regrettable that the implication from this is that pregnancy/babies and the national coaching role are mutually exclusive….. Tracey Neville guided them to a gold Medal -its be offering her around the clock nannies, IVF and anything else i could manage if i was in charge at England Netball….

    I genuinely hope that this is truly a ‘choice’ for Tracey and that it reflects the type of parent she hopes to be, rather than because she sees the role as untenable.
