    The previous regime had a big issue with the micro management watching their every move on the training ground. This came directly from one of the coaches I personally know.

    I thought the same thing when watching Villa play the other day.

    Not that I have any idea in regard to his coaching ability, but it did cross my mind that I was surprised he hasn’t been mentioned.

    Didn't Jane Austin have an undiagnosed mental illness towards the end of her life? Such a shame. Brilliant writer and story teller
    and was not afraid of being risky even at that time period. I hope she is writing with the other greats even now.

    Phil C on The Athletic chat said the same thing almost word for word.

    Careful mate.

    Johan was a sixty a day man I thought hence the quadruple by pass.

    Luckily so close to Watford General for those with a dodgy ticker:

    “His teams play out from defence in a way that many other managers - and fans who are not used to the sight - would regard as intolerably risky.”

    Unlike a lot of people here and elsewhere online, I personally won’t be jumping up and down at another of Gino’s bargain bin, roladex appointments (if this guy gets the job) until he starts producing results.

    Just because they're from abroad and you know nothing about them, it doesn't make them cr@p. Setien is genuinely a great coach, Gracia was and still is highly regarded in Spain, Flores plays painful football but is a decent coach and was definitely a coup for a newly promoted team. Even Mazzarri did great work with Sampdoria and Napoli in Italy before coming to us. Not everyone will suit us or the Premier League but it doesn't mean they are awful coaches.

    The most exciting thing about the maverick manager is his philosophy: dynamic attacking football is more important to Setién than the result.

    Oh blimey!

    We’re going to lose 5-4

    On the outside Flores first time around and Gracia will get kudos for mid-table finishes and in Gracia's case getting to a Cup final (ok the final was awful of course..)

    Walter's problem was the language barrier.

    That’s very interesting and whilst only a view rings true and probably does explain why we have the turnover of coaches we have had and why they have to buy into the Pozzo model which is maybe more about Giraldi running things than separating the head coach from player recruitment / contract negotiations that we are told is the main thrust of the model,

    The longer the search goes on the more your friends view makes sense. The Pozzo model or is it the Giraldi model?

    Why ? Well Gino calls the shots and so we will never know

    So sit back as fans and accept the performances. After 11 home league games without a win cue instant music as the final whistle blows to drown out any dissent - seems almost Orwellian

    Allardyce it is, then.

    Like we'd score 4.

    Pedro, Sarr, Deeney, Gray, GD etc (Welbeck) - we’re going to have a front line to bang em in and a midfield encouraged to attack - We’ll score 4.
    It’s the playing out from the back bit that might hit the buffers..

    Was going to ‘like’ it then realised you’d put Deeney and Gray in and realised it was a wind-up. Nearly got me...

    Well, whether we think he's doing a proper job or not, it would be odd for the technical director to NOT be involved in the coaching search. That's their role... to lay out the overall football strategy, select and groom a player pool that fits that strategy and hire coaches to develop them and coach the first team. Picking the 18 or the 11 and dictating tactics WOULD be abnormal. Now, in a situation where you've just fired the whole first team staff, I would expect that it's all hands on deck to sort out a plan for Leicester. TD, scouts, interim staff... everyone.

    WRT to candidates, certainly there are still some managers out there who want to control everything. Very few clubs run that way now. That said, if he has a bad reputation, that would be a bigger issue.

    I’m not saying it does make them so. But equally just because there are a few gushing testaments online I’m not going to assume he’s the answer to all of our problems.

    Been made a social pariah by the boys, apparently she's always carrying rectangular bundles of paper around. Sounds like an Abdi mk.2.

    If he has so much influence in the club, why isn’t Giraldi being considered as the new Manager?

    Alan Nixon on Twitter has said that some names in the media have put their own name out there through their agents and leaked it - hence some bizarre names being linked. Specifically Lamouchi who it’s claimed his agent is using us to get a longer deal out of Forest.

    Also says that we seem to be rigidly sticking to our policy of it just being until the end of the season, hence there not being a rush to take it...

    Lastly says that some managers have had a call to gauge their interest and then haven’t had a follow up call. Says the whole process is a shambles.

    The latest name he has heard from within the game is ‘the Spanish guy’ - who you’d assume is Setien.

    Can't be a shambles. Our owners are truly perfect and bought us from a dentist.
