He got sacked in the (American) morning!

Moyes' agent will be passing a few lines to the media too, to remind everyone that his client actually still exists and is sat at home.

He planted seeds in the media last time, and ended up with Sunderland (then took them down).

No reason to think that would INCREASE his standing in the football world.

gotcha, I thought you meant avoid even the caretaker role since Unsy was maybe under consideration.

it was obvious Walsh and Koeman didn't see eye to eye, doesn't mean Walsh is blameless mind

The thing that makes this a little worse is that we paid so much for Koeman's number one target and our new manager may not even end up rating him...

More likely Rooney is quietly moved aside (or used as an impact sub), if you ask me.  Sigurdsson is generally a well-regarded player, and he'll be used properly by the new manager, I'd bet.

Walsh has to answer for the glaring lack of CB depth and LB cover.  The rest I think is indeed to pin at least 80% of the blame on Koeman.

That's a damning assessment of the board for not backing Walsh. All of his authority must stem from the board, it's not enough to just put a guy in place.

It's the first time we've had this arrangement and we clearly failed to demarcate clear lines of authority (and, for that matter, make sure DoF and manager can work constructively together).  We need to learn from that, and quickly.

They've covered it at the time in great detail. This is Andy Hunter's own opinion piece after the dust has settled.

I just always think of them as the more reasoned folk!  With politics, too.

Well, the theory is that DoF is there for the long term, and the head coach is responsible for the short term. Ideally the DoF is part of the club's brickwork, a well-respected ex-player or something similar. They should also constantly talk to each other. It's fine to disagree but when they finish their discussion, they should do so with a clear decision.

That's the theory.

In practice if it isn't part of the whole culture of the club (like it is in most German clubs), it usually fails miserably.

But eventually, won't it be part of the culture everywhere?  It's too much responsibility for the manager to carry (and do so competently) in the modern game.
