Maybe they’ve already trained or are on a day off.

Didn't say much, just that hes excited to get back in to day to day coaching after spending a lot of time scouting around Europe for Belgium (will we benefit from that?) and that our business isn't done yet as we've still got a bit to do.

I feel we will as he would have noticed the quality of other nationalities playing with or against his targets, that’s what scouts do

The Redeemer; I like that and very apt.  Can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to the season this year.  We’re getting our club back.

"Hopefully we can introduce a different brand of football, obviously still paying attention to defending well but playing expansive football" Oh for the Ossie Ardiles days!  ;D

I'm very pleased to see Graeme say this, as Darren had been vague about it previously, saying that we would play expansive/attacking football "when needed". I now feel more confident that we won't be Pulis-like in our approach and I'll be delighted if that's the case.

Been a steadying addition for Dave,this attacking policy is no coincidence is it?
Just thinking have we appointed a club doctor yet?

according to the club directory, it’s someone called Julian Widdowson. From a quick google, he’s attached to a bunch of hospitals and has worked with many other sports and athletes over several decades up to Olympic level.

loved this:

“Culturally, I know what's gone on here for the last four or five years. In order to move forward we can't play that way any more. We're West Bromwich Albion, one of the best, if not the biggest side in the Championship.

“We need to move forward, we need a different style, different shape, in order to win football matches, because you only get promoted winning football matches.

“I ask them to be patient, because it's a new culture that's arriving at the club, and try to support that.

“Did Wolves get 100 points last year? 99. You have to score goals and win football matches. Draws are sometimes good results in the Premier League, in the Championship they're not.”


Perfect attitude and with Big Dave that will certainly rub off on the lads.

Bloody hell someone at the Albion actually talking the club up? Well it's been a long time coming, Paul Thompson I think was the last one.

A refreshing and hugely overdue attitude and that sort of attitude gets into peoples subconscious.

We'll be building a decent stand to replace the Halfords next ..................  :)

Love his attitude and his connection with Big Dave we may actually have stumbled on the right management team and one that will play how we the fans want them to play, for the first time in a long time i am looking forward to the season and hopefully many more.

If a person believes in what he is saying & his actions back them up it WILL rub off on people around him, backed up by bringing in players fitting the philosophy i only see a bright future him & the club.
Thanks Darren it took a long time to get Graeme in but it was worth it.

To be fair to DM, it appears he had sorted the deal some time ago. Moore had urged GJ to take a holiday before the formalities were sorted out.
Having seen the way this guy conducts himself and communicates his views, it may calm the those who talk about Darren Moore being out of his depth and inarticulate.

I really wouldn't bank on it  ;) .

You form your views based on evidence to hand. Some unease about Moore getting the job was reasonable - if Moore and Jones had been unveiled as a double act at the start there would have been more positivity as it would have hinted at the change of playing style that most wanted.
