Me too.  Plus he actually looks like a manager.
Yep, he looks like he could take part in the training sessions  not just hear from his coaches what had happened.

Looks like Deano is looking to bring in a set pieces coach at some point.

Can they start with throw ins?! I've been waiting a decade or more to see a Villa team actually know what to do with a throw in.

See, I've been wondering about this. The club pay, what, at least £5000 a week per player on wages, even for cheapish squad players, so £250,000 per year. You'd think at a bare minimum they could afford £50000 a year to get someone with a sports science degree as a coach / personal trainer for each player.

The amount of money the club has pissed up the wall on Micah Richards alone, there's no reason why the club shouldn't be spending good money to get the same marginal gains that Team GB do in cycling. They should be squeezing out that extra 1% passing accuracy, 1% better throw-ins, making the players 1% faster, ....

Would a 1% better throw in be passing it to the opposition's head rather than their feet?!

Was listening to Klopp the other day who said he brought in a coach to oversee throw ins.

It's something that occurs, what, dozens of times in a game? The more I think about it, the dafter it seems to not have a thoroughly professional approach to what should be an advantageous situation.

3 wins from 6 games for Dean. He's already matched Bruce for league wins this season.

He’s the real deal....this time I’ll say it with confidence.
Now we’re being coached and not just managed (badly).

Hi Dean, is there a Mrs Smith? Asking for a 'friend' as I don't love you loads at all. Honest.
