He's basically heading up the scouting/recruitment side.  I'm not sure how useful it is to have someone who's able to tell you that Neymar and Messi are half decent footballers.  You want them to be able to pick up good players for less than they're actually worth, simple as that.  He seems to have a good track record of that, which personally I'd prefer over someone who's a big name but doesn't have the track record.

I don't know a thing about him apart from the article someone posted up so I'll reserve judgement and let him crack on with it. Hope it works out.

He can't be any worse than Suso though John.  I hope he's here to work WITH Smith, rather than imposing an array of mediocre plodders from Belgium on him as appeared to be the case with Pitarch.

Smith used to have good links to the Danish League as Benham owns Middtylands or whatever they are called.  Maybe he knows him.

is this the Smith who was sitting down with Drinkwater thinking he was one of the the answers to our season or the Smith that constantly played Taylor & Hause before Guilbert & Target

 his judgment of a player is not all it should be either

Well I hope he's not the Scandinavian Steve round (who I see is now at cup finalist Arsenal alongside Arteta, Everton connection)
Round was the assistant manager at Premier League sides Everton & Manchester United and Director of Football at Aston Villa.

This Lange chap was an assistant manager at wolves to Ex Wimbledon player StŚle Solbakken they took over and did 6 months in championship before getting dismissed. This was following on after wolves relegated in 2012-13 the Danish pair were the great hope to see them back up.

When Terry moves off to be Head Coach somewhere, how about Martin Laursen as Defensive Coach?

If nothing else, we'd score a few from corners

Mings,Engells and Konsa have all chipped in with the odd goal last term but I'd like to see more from them.

If we sort the attack out properly, we could become a force.

Slightly sentimental but - yes! - I'd love to see his unbridled enthusiasm on the bench.
However, what is he doing now? - is he involved anywhere since he resigned his manger  role in 2012?

Matt Kendrick interviewed him on the Claret and Blue podcast a few months ago. I canít remember much as it was quite boring compared to most of the other ones theyíve done.

It mostly involved him talking about his earlier years and that he was good mates with Mellberg and his wife and used to kip on their sofa a lot. I think he ended up marrying her sister. That was about as exciting as it got.
