I would have lived with Matt Targett and sacrificed his defensive abilities to allow the winger/wide-midfielder ahead of him more freedom (although he did pop-up with a couple of goals for us and had a good understanding with Grealish) but I take your point.

I'm not sure about Targett tbh.

He's solid at best - it didn't take long for him to lose his place at Newcastle - to a centre back - after leaving here.

Same boat. Put aside his time at Villa, the rest of his Premier League career suggests he's a backup player at this level.

Yeah but we already owned target, since then weve spent about 35m and doubled the wages and it hasnt moved us forward much, if at all.  The changing of managers is clearly a big part of that but, as a club, it is still pretty careless.

If we'd just not bought Digne and upgraded to Moreno at that price we'd have done smart business.

Signing Digne was the problem, largely because he's shit.

Does that push Lange out the door?

Well who would you choose? Better colours just about and we did them in '83.

Id be worried about taking a job there and then being strong armed into taking a wage cut within about a week.

I think Emery wants to appoint someone to sit above Lange in the hierarchy.

Is it really healthy for an organisation if a manager gets to appoint the person to work above them?

Probably not and I phrased that poorly. I read somewhere that Emery prefers a structure which has someone sit above the position currently occupied by Lange. Whether he has a say on who that may be is probably a question for NSWE.

If it means Purslow having less to do with the football side of the club I'm all for it.
