Which size spoon do I have to use.So if we are saying that the reason for the 'tiff' is nothing to do with MW being unhappy about new players coming in...........what IS the problem??.......
The press are reporting that the issue is that the manager is being forced to sign players he has never seen - the implication being that the owner is a mad, meddling know-nothing in the same vein as Vincent Tan etc. The model we have (or rather the model that MB wants) is not the old English model where the Manager is responsible for player recruitment; academy; youth team; keeping the garden tidy etc. etc. etc. and is instead supported by the model that the rest-of-the-world uses in the form of a Director of Football and then a First Team coach; Head of Academy etc.
So yes the "First Team Coach" will coach players that he may not have seen before - two of them are Jota and Tebar whom no-one is complaining about.
