    Is any club Nin? Look at Newcastle where the new owners are already at odds with Amanda Shaggerley. Or Tottenham where Nuno was 5th or 6th choice and the fans want him out already. And many others.

    While your blueprint is what should happen the actuality is often completely different and is based on the owners' personal preferences, likes and dislikes. They seem to think that having wads of cash to buy into a football club suddenly makes them an expert on the subject.

    Only the fans know different.

    Who manages the Wales women?
    Just watching them and they're playing some nice stuff. Unbeaten in qualifying as well.

    A woman.

    With apologies for this, but the changing rooms are so clean and tidy too.

    I'll get my coat before it is scissored into pieces and set fire to.

    3 up. Could easily double that as Estonia tire.

    Three goals for the home side at CCS!
    Whatever next?
    Good to see Gemma and her team getting a bit of respect at last and to see them playing in the capital.

    Really cool finish for the fourth.
    Excellent display albeit against weak opposition.

    I tell you what, the passes were brilliant. I enjoyed the full game.

    Well done Wales women.

    Perhaps you could recruit the Wales women’s team and field them instead of your usual lot?

    How very dare you call our boys "your usual lot". I'll have you know they are extremely unusual.

    Reading his words about the 23s has given me a different perspective about his role with the senior team.
    My initial thought was him as manager with an experienced DoF might be the way forward.
    However, given the job he's done with the 23s we'd end up having to replace him in that role.
    Might be better to keep him where he is.

    Exellent responses to the questions. He sounds a professional with a real grasp on the game, the club and his own abilities.
    I think if it's obvious after a few games that he's worth a punt, the club shouldn't hold him back and should give him a go. Can't stop people progressing just because they'd be missed in their current role. In any case, I think Morison is suffieciently switched on to see what's right for him and the club. All that said, it looks increasingly likely that a new face from outside the club will take first team job.
