What is the point of an assistant manager, judging by the changes after DA took over he had no say in tactics, team selection or anything else apparently and not the first by far over a number of years to say that his views were ignored by the manager

Obviously. You appoint an assistant to assist you, not manage the team. I expect my assistant at work to organise my meetings, take notes, general day to day tasks etc... It's exactly the same in football.

I donít think sense of humour and banter are the primary qualities that Iím looking for in a coach/assistant manager.

Well said Irchy.

But surely sense of humour and banter are essential qualities required by anyone supporting the team. And therefore I can't see it doing any harm if these qualities are shared by some of the management team.

Thatís why I said theyíre not the primary qualities Iím looking for - obviously a mixture of good cop bad cop is essential but Iím looking for tactical assistance and his defensive insights before anything else.

Pleased with this appointment, the defence was awful last season. HOPEFULLY we'll be a lot more organised at the back this season. Welcome Andy.
             I agree with your comments on our defence last season. You cant win anything without a good defence. COME ON COBBLERS!

Andy Todd does not have a strong sense of humour.

Iím not sure a managerís assistant is the same as a PA. I canít quite see Todd studiously taking notes while Austin talks, more like glaring on his behalf.

 Grin yeah I know. Point I was making is you don't have an assistant making decisions ahead of the manager.
