Ricketts and Darlington
 
Genuine question here for those in the know. When did Ricketts approach the board to relieve Darlington of his duties? I can't get my head around it

Ricketts and later Barrow wanted Darlington out ... obviously wanted a first team coach full time and not just turn up when they want ..

He was aware of the structure before he took the job though surely? When did he decide he wanted him out?

Probably when he seen he wasn’t the tactical genius everyone thought he was

Thought you didn't believe this even happened?

I’m pretty sure at any normal club the manager can get rid of anyone on his coaching team by his own accord, no?

Do you know this as fact?

No idea when it happened but reliably informed that he did want him out.

What I saw from the open training session in Portugal.

As they walked from the changing rooms to the training pitches Ricketts walked out on his own. Not socialising with the players, like a manager.

The players, Barrow, Darlington and the fitness coach all came on together chatting.

The fitness coach got them warmed up.

Darlington took the first drill. Which looked like a variation of playing through the thirds drill. Ricketts and Barrow had no input

Barrow then took a shooting drill on his own. A basic one you see at the start of a kids football match. Pass, lay off, shoot.

Then Ricketts did the final drill on his own., which was one winger, receiving the ball wide. Three strikers attacking the box, left, middle and centre. Which was actually executed in the match v Louletano for Fondops header.

My takeaways were -

Ricketts was the boss. I liked that, can't envisage Hughes being like that, whether thats good, bad or neither.

3 coaches doing 3 drills. Where they linked? And who was overseeing the whole thing. I didn't see how. It's not like one was the striking coach etc as the whole group took part in every drill. Also how would this work on a part time set up.

This may be of no value. But its what I saw

When he realised he talked utter shite?

The proof is in the pudding and the pudding's tasted like shit since he's been here.
