Iím freelancing at a Dutch company at present and there is a super knowledgeable guy who talks a lot about football. I mentioned the rumor and he said that it has been in the Dutch press too, he says that Brands has a good scouting network in Central and South America and finds good players from Mexico and Columbia.
Not many Mexican or Columbian players have made it in the Prem, have they? Doesn't seem to suit their style. Not that I'm playing Brands down or anything.
I was in favour of keeping one (Walsh) for a year and sacking the other (Allardyce) to allow for a bit of continuity. Giving Walsh the benefit of the doubt as most of his signings were probably the right call at the time.
That article makes it sound like we are keeping one & sacking one in the summer, but arse about tit and Allardyce is the one staying.
Isn't the DoF's objectives to decide the fate of the manager?
I hope the club have decided to give the job to Brands now and give him the rest of the season to evaluate the health of the club, the squad, understand its strengths and weaknesses and then decide that Sam is a calamity and then fire him as soon as the whistle blows on this clusterfuck of a season.
That removes Moshiri from the process and he can say it was the new guy implementing his regime.
