Good read that. Encapsulates the feeling amongst us at the minute, that we're moving in the right direction under a man with a plan.

Breathe out and relax. Is that the feeling everyone else gets when reading anything about Brands?

It is exactly as the article says, I feel we have someone who is overseeing the club with only it's best, long term, interests at heart. Of course, I want to hear about new signings but that is more to do with alleviating the summer boredom. Deep down, I know that whatever we do will be the right thing. Nothing desparate, no crazy fees, just good solid business done with a plan in mind.

I wish he was looking after my finances!
Being Irish, he had an abiding sense of tragedy, which sustained him through temporary periods of joy.

I wish he was looking after my life. I'd follow his directions blindly and probably die the happiest man this planet has ever known.
Are we there yet?

I'm a fan of what he's done so far but that's easy when times are good. I do think it's one of those roles where someone probably gets slightly more credit or criticism than they deserve based upon results. A bit like an assistant manger does or first team coaches.

Paul Joyce has apparently stated in an article that Brands was wanted three years ago but good old Ronald vetoed it.

And he is still getting paid by us...

Should owe us money for almost ruining the club the cockwomble.

Wonder if that has anything to do with Brands binning him off in a former job . :thumbsup:

Might also be because Brands seems to value some degree of professional competence over golfing holidays and brasses from Ellesmere Port.

Brands is an absolute Godsend.  Gives us a much-needed sense of purpose and stability.  Short-term thinking is ruinous, and I hope Moshiri has learned that lesson now.

I actually hate Koeman, which is pathetic, I know

I do feel as though we are indeed in good hands with Brands.
