Is the job that specialist that you would want to bring in your own? Is there a secret to the Wigan washing powders?

The whispers I'm hearing that Ian Craney is going to have another role. Not sure what though.

Pullen can play in goal if needed? Can Ian Craney? Cook out.

Each kitman has his own secret washing powder/fabric softener recipe, closely guarded.

But the question is: do we go for a bio or non-bio type of guy?

It also gives you a vehicle that can talk to you and train players.

Phil, is it possible that Craney comes in at the under 23 level for us and then the first team coaches are Dyer, Jeffers and Roberts?

We're now accumulating something more like a higher-end Champ backroom setup. We wanted a better structure, now we're getting it.

Most top-level sports have long gone with specific coaches for particular disciplines (e.g. defence, attack) as well as the overall strategists, plus analysts and other personnel with particular skills. Much like the military in the 20th century, they are realising that without all the support staff, the front line troops are not effective.

Agreed. I'm a little confused about a few peoples stance of 'what are we doing with all these coaches?!?!?!'

Any decent set up has more than just an assistant, coach and GK coach. The reason why we've had that is because we've been run like a League 1 club for god knows how long.

That being said, I'm still curious as to who will be assistant.

Entirely. I know nothing of Ian Craney's aspirations or coaching qualifications, so just speculating that that might be the role he's lined-up for.

Mullet Gtsb Blue badger Bloots N2 Blue ITFC Joe …and the rest. Do you not understand that these forums have massive sway these days? You’ve killed it. We may go on to bigger better things, who knows? Your bitching and whining on here is picked up and has a massive ripple effect. Fking knobs the lot of you. For weeks you’ve been stamping your feet like little girls and it gets picked up when all you needed to do was ride it out for a bit. Pathetic. Cook always comes good, he always has done, talk to any Pompey, Wigan or Chesterfield fan. I’m in Pompey tonight and they’re all shaking their heads. Dkheads the lot of you. Happy to get banned on the back of this. You’re ridiculous. The ramifications are massive which may be placated with money but fk me; learn to kick a ball and know what you’re talking about before you lash out in anger. A massive shame and a massive shame on you. Cook is working hard. What are you doing other than idly pointing fingers and drawing on nonsense stats. Nothing but contempt for you lot and your baseless insights into football when you’ve never even kicked a ball.

My sources tell me that our very own Cleaner has had two interviews for the role and is about to have a third. I fear he will want to push the scope of the role too far beyond just cleaning kit however, and that ultimately a less ambitious candidate will get the nod.

Cleaner doesn't strike me as the genocidal type but if he goes that far, then he clearly isn't suited to the job.

Correct and I think we actually owned the coach.

Trevor Kirton-although I had to google it because I could not remember his name exactly.

I think Paul Elmer was a kitman who also doubled up as the coach driver in the early 2000s too.
