Not sure I'm having it personally. Sounds unlikely.

Can't understand him having Joe has a mentor and experienced head around to discuss ideas/issues/etc. But I can imagine Joe would have much of a say in the team, tactics, training. Having a mentor is normal and good practice in most careers, but needing them to do your job is not and I doubt that is the case.

You just have to look at the make-up of the sides to know they are not Joe Royle sides.

Depends on who is recruiting
Moshiri or kenwright

Kenwright really wants Unsworth and Royle together is what I have been told, so maybe there is some truth in it?
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Am I being daft here? Big Joe Royal shouldn’t be picking the fuckin teams surely!

Smacks of Kenwright's romanticism though.

Given the scale of the task, it would have been a bit mad, not to lean on Royle's experience when needed.

Just there to give support and contribute anyway that he can.

People are always more willing to believe things that confirm their view, regardless of logic.

The scout who lured Moussa Dembele to Celtic has revealed how Everton asked his advice over a £30million bid for the striker after selling Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.

David Moss, who quit as Celtic's head of scouting in June to take up a role as Huddersfield Town's head of football operations, told Sportsmail: 'Everton were a club who phoned me up about him. They said: "David, what do you think?" I said: "Don't even blink, don't even think about it, sign him. It's a no-brainer".'

So finding a striker that can score in the SPL makes you a scouting guru now.

Bakambu (villerreal) or Andre Gray for me want to play with pace in the team.

Before he got injured I would have had Callum Wilson here.

Noticed he got a hat trick today.

I'd still have him here.

We need to look further afield than the premier league. There’s no value to be had.

Yep, linked when he was a youth/fringe player at Fulham.
