  • What does an assistant manager do ??

    Don't get me wrong I have a feeling that Eustace was / has the ability to be good a good football man so what's the point of having him and Warburton at a cash strapped club our size

    Very good question. But think he was still under contract so they would have had to pay him off if they got rid. So make him work for his money and another scapegoat if it goes pear shaped.

      True, but as an assistant he can also contribute to team affairs if the manager is willing to listen.

        He's simply there to bridge the gap between the players and the manager (be a confidant) as well as offer an opinion as the the manager's tactics and decisions.

        Can't think of any managers who don't have one so why not have Eustace who has clearly, based on the uplift in performances since McClaren, got on well with the players already ?

                        In Ollie and Bircham's case. Birch would spin the tombola drum but Ollie would actually pick the names out.

                            Assistant managers are there to take over for a couple of games when the manager inevitably gets sacked

                              They can become quite famous. Like Big Sam and Little Sam. Maybe they need to have same name though. Beyond that (and this is a genuine question) I often wonder what managers' do so think it is unfair to single out assistant managers. By the way, did you see Citeh's management crew at the weekend...... appeared to be at least 30 of them!
