It's not a criticism, if that's how he works then fair enough. The term "manager" in uk seems to have a large spectrum of responsibilities, from a pretty much director of football type who has virtually nothing to do with training but builds a squad, deals with transfers, scouting, setting a direction for his coaches at the different levels etc. etc. all the way through to a tracksuit manager who is directly running the training sessions and has close contact with his players all day every day.
They are all jobs that need doing in a club, Bruce deserves the credit for knowing that Agnew (from their past work together) was the right man to work with this group to get them playing how Bruce might have wanted but didn't have the coaching set up to attain. If that is the case then Agnew deserves credit for the massive improvement of how we've been playing with the ball a few times recently. We've been shit with it too and still won, but you know, then longest journey starts with the smallest step and all that.
It’s the Championship, having followed Brighton in it for many years I can tell you there’s still so so many more twists to come, not likely but Wolves could even fall out of the play offs places that’s the nature of this division. All we need to do like @TRO has said is worry about our results which seems to have picked up, still very feasible Villa could win the league. I don’t say this to be mocked but it’s what I can share with you from experience.
Maybe. Or hopefully they think it's good for him to stay in a competitive environment like ours. If he's to make it at spurs he needs to develop that fighting spirit. I think he's a good option here and could well play in the DM role.
