Of course it is. In what universe could our new assistant being highly rated at more than one other club and getting close to winning a senior role be considered bad news?Senior Coaching gigs only come around so often. No one could fault him applying.

I know what you are saying, KC, but I don't think his playing career is relevant, and great talking is basically the job of coaching.Not being facetious but he must be a great talker. Because as already mentioned, he has close to zero demonstrable success from a 25 year football career.
Agree re playing career to an extent but it is helpful to see who he played under to guess at what culture he might've been imbued with. Clarkson the obvious example, no team success as a player but was coached by Pagan and Balme who both had their strengths.I know what you are saying, KC, but I don't think his playing career is relevant, and great talking is basically the job of coaching.
