In terms of goalkeeper coaches, have to admit to being bemused when we sacked Billy Mercer. I can only imagine that the managerial targets we had wanted to bring in their own.

Dande and claretony, been on Wouts case ever since he signed and they both loved Wood
That’s not true at all. I’d never seen him or knew of him when he signed. Thought he started well but then dropped off until eventually we saw Jackson prefer to play Barnes.
