Positive thinking hat:hughsies no.1 Understandably a questionable appointment - but it's happened now and it's not going to be changed so we've got to back him.
Positive thinking hat on:
- Knows the players from last season and this season so will know strengths and weaknesses
- Knows the club
- Has played a part in the new signings so mass overhaul won't be happening again
(well at least I got to 3...)
Must also help the club from an FFP perspective getting rid of Gomes on big money and making an internal appointment (clutching here)
- He's watched all the games and has presumably worked out where Gomes was going wrong & feels he has the experience to turn the results around
- He can start immediately
- Opportunity for some puns - "Hitting the mark"/"Wide of the mark"
- He isn't Neil Warnock
- He doesn't have to worry about the sporting director taking his job (until we appoint a new one)
Negatives not already mentioned
- Welsh Day won't be as exciting as Portugal Day
- He shits on the English side of the bridge (understandably so, considering the distance from here to Wales)
- He may be part of the problem/culture that is causing the issues and therefore things may not change
