Wellington Phoenix general manager David Dome admits finding the right successor to Ernie Merrick is the most important decision in the A-League clubs history. Scarpe Stan Smith Scontate .The Phoenixs shortlist is down to five names with Dome hopeful of settling on a new coach by Christmas.South Melbourne coach Chris Taylor is reportedly in the mix while those previously linked to the job include Mark Rudan, Luciano Trani, Auckland City coach Ramon Tribulietx, and caretakers Chris Greenacre and Des Buckingham.In the context of the clubs long-term A-League future and the red-hot expansion debate, it is a decision Dome acknowledges the club simply cannot get wrong.Its absolutely crucial this club is in the finals this year, and if were not in the finals series, were going to be in trouble - theres no doubt about that, Dome told AAP.We have to be top six, if not top four, and we identified top four at the start of the season. Its not impossible.The next coach has to come in and take us to the next level, and thats important for us.The expansion landscape has added a greater sense of urgency about the Phoenixs precarious position.Around a dozen parties are knocking on the door to join an expanded A-League in 2018-19, while the New Zealand club is no guarantee of remaining in the competition beyond the 2019-20 season.Last year, they were nearly axed to make way for a third Sydney team, but were granted a new four-year licence with further extensions conditional on improvements in key metrics like attendances and TV ratings.Ten weeks into the new season and average crowds and memberships are marginally down, but Dome reckons thats because the Phoenix are more reliant on results to attract local interest than other teams.Far from pushing the panic button, he believes the building blocks for success are in place.The key is a coach who can unlock the clubs potential.Were very sensitive to that, we do need to get those metrics up to retain the licence, 100 per cent, Dome said.Overall in terms of the metrics, were not in a bad space.Of course we want more people coming to games, we understand youre not going to get that when youre bottom of the table.We know historically, when we are doing well, we get decent numbers, north of 10,000, which is where we need to be.If we can do that, the whole thing takes off - the country becomes obsessed with the Phoenix.Currently ninth on the ladder, the Phoenix host Western Sydney in Auckland on Saturday.

Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken. And spoken is defined as one calling the other to inquire, no more, no less. http://www.stansmithscontate.it/ . JOHNS, N. HOUSTON -- Houston coach Tom Herman says he is annoyed about reports that he has been contacted for the LSU job and insists the chatter does not affect his sixth-ranked team.Its really a non-issue, Herman said Monday. We are so very open and honest in our program that if it was I would know about it. Its not an issue because our guys have been educated to know that whatever they need to hear about me is going to come from me and its going to be the truth.Herman has become a hot commodity for coaching vacancies after leading the Cougars to a 13-1 record and a win over Florida State in the Peach Bowl in his first season before helping Houston to a 4-0 start this year.On Sunday, Herman talked to reporters after practice and refuted a report that said his agent had been contacted by LSU after coach Les Miles was fired this weekend.You know my stance, he told reporterrs. Stan Smith Scontate Uomo. Im never going to comment about another job during the season. Its not fair to our players. Its not fair to whatever university these reports are about. Its not fair to anybody.He said on Monday that he wasnt going to waste more time and energy talking about false reports regarding his future.Me ranting and raving about its not going to change it, he said. I still think irresponsible journalism is more and more prevalent than it ever has been and it stinks because it affects peoples lives and livelihood and theres no recourse or repercussions ... instead of me ranting and raving, I have to spend my energy focused on a lot more productive things because Im not going to change it. I dont know what will or if it ever will.
