I have no problem with a manager being denied a player he would like for reasons probably financial, it’s not unreasonable for the chairman to have the final say in this. I do, however, have a major problem with a manager being given a player he doesn’t want, chosen by somebody else and possibly one he doesn’t even know.
That’s all very well but what happens when you change the manager? Do you have to sign a whole new squad for them? Given how disposable managers are these days, it makes sense to have more consistency in the type of football played and the types of players signed? Which is not to say that the Swann’s committee have been getting it right, by any means! But I think the principle is sound.
