He has the look of a strict P.E. teacher. I imagine he picks his teams based on their attitudes/ graft in training. I suppose that’s okay in and of itself, but shouldn’t be at the expense of on field talent.

Aye, quite possible, taking into mind the shenanigans of playing Clark instead of Fede/Schar...

I have never believed in the mantra of some coaches about training at the same level as a match, you cannot get the same adrenalin and focus on a training pitch as you can in a competitive match. Some players just rise a bit for games.

I do believe they should all be punctual and put an effort into all sessions, but match level is never quite the same, otherwise you would have injuries galore.

All the players at the Euros were raving about his sessions and he's very highly rated so I doubt he is a shit coach, but tactically he's useless and he's clearly not a manager.

His stock has fallen a bit over the past few months but i'm ok with him staying as long as he isn't thrust upon the new manager.

Remember the Everton game after his appointment,  we looked a different team , then reverted back to normal and no improvement since . He's not what I first thought 

When he first came in he was probably assured that the team was at PL levels of fitness, and able to maintain sustained pressure.

Be like Chip Cob from the fast show:  “playground levels of fitness you say, unable to sustain any level of fitness?” 👍🏻 “Let’s play football”

I can't get my head around exactly why he's been assured of a job here. Why even make that promise to him?

It was the only way he'd come here. Bruce was on the verge of the sack and he didn't want to be kicked out the door with him I understand that he was promised a position with whoever came in

Why aren’t we binning him off?


Think he will in time. Can see Howe’s face now when Jones is trying to explain how Fernandez can’t sit on the bench, he can only start or be dropped. One listen to that kind of shite and Howe will get shot straight away.

Yes saying it in the Obi Wan “these are not the droids you’re looking for” manner, he’ll think he’s just dropped in to the Trueman show. “Hey Jones on yer bike ya fucker” 💩👉🏻
