Should the first team manager really be having to do this?
I thought the whole ‘Head of Football’ thing was a bit odd when it was announced at the start of the season, I have not changed my mind and agree that the we should have a first team manager who focuses on managing the first team.
The club seem to be merging the roles of Director of Football and First Team Manager and be expecting that one person does both roles.

Problem is, when the first team is so shocking it seems like empty rhetoric. And most of us don’t experience that wider work. We just get the Saturdays. So it’s not top of our list of priorities
But plenty of people do. I’ve a mate who worked for the community trust. Now works for saints and before that he was at WBA. He has nothing but positive things to say about that work, the people in the club that he met and impact of it.
