Leicester Saint Posted May 10, 2014 Report Share Posted May 10, 2014 Gilmour used to talk about succession planning and promoting from within. That was the story when Coughlin replaced Tom Hendrie and when McPherson replaced Coughlin. Whilst there is some sense in that logic the problem with it is that it leads to assistants who become less than supportive of the manager in order to speed up getting the job, and you often get an assistant who's tainted with the previous managers failings. What I would be wary of though is the extent to which certain players within the squad are able to influence decisions on managerial matters with directors in the boardroom. The only reason we've ever done that is to save money. Cheap options for managers have been the way ever since the current board have been in charge. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
