They don't fully understand football yet. They have Comolli in now and he was keen to keep stressing this. Comolli will be their eyes and ears on the manager I think.
They removed the manager at Boston pretty soon after taking over so they are not averse to the idea. My guess is they need to feel they make the right decision as sacking him will be expensive.
Appreciate the response. I hear what you're saying, I really do. Let me say this though. So, Comolli is the man to advise NESV on Roy? Well, I've just watched the Comolli interview, and the same story, Comolli is saying how happy he is with Roy, how Roy is a highly respected coach, and that they share the same vision etc. They agree on everything I think he said. Everyone quoted at the club believes in Roy. Is this a lie, good PR, or their honest opinion? Watching the chat with Comolli, I really wasn't impressed. His answers were vague. His English is not brilliant so this could well be an obstacle. However, I am none the wiser about NESV's long term strategy, other than they believe in youth, statistics, and "supporting" each other. All very woolly. I know, I know "give them time FFS!! They've only been there X weeks!"
But I don't get how 90-95% of people on this forum are basically foaming at the mouth with Roy, yet we are singing John Henry's praises for taking out 30 minutes of his day to answer important questions about your club! I am grateful to John, Tom and NESV in ridding us of H&G but still, let's not forget that they are the privileged ones here in owing LFC (I'm not suggesting that they've acted poorly in this regard I should add). John Henry is calling the majority of RAWK wrong for blaming Roy Hodgson for Liverpool's poor performances. That's fine, that's his opinion and I don't begrudge him it. He may even be right. But how can people be so "Roy is shit, C*nt, get rid" etc and then just shrug your shoulders and accept it when one of the owners tells you that you're flat out wrong? I don't get it. NESV might not understand football yet, but they're not mincing their words here. Support Roy, support the team. You don't agree? Well then you're not on aboard with our philosophy. That's what I'm hearing.
Saying all that, I am keeping an open mind. First impressions were good, hmmm I'm not so sure I like what I'm hearing now. They said that they will make mistakes. Well, I think they have already made a couple. I know I will be blasted for not having patience, and if I took more time I could word this a lot better. This isn't an anti-NESV/Henry/Werner/Comolli rant, far from it, I'm just a bit concerned.
I do think NESV's intentions are good. I believe them when they say that their intentions are to create a winning team. And I'm not averse to their thinking, with their Director of Football setup for example. I just think they've got the wrong people in those positions.
