The report above ^ talks about Sam Rush and the owners, but did anyone else notice on the Ramsplayer piece he did say Sam Rush, the owner and the Board.  Maybe Mel has bought up some shares, or invested more cash, to get overall control after all.

He spoke very well in his interview on Rams Player. Rather impressed

​Wengers first job in management - 28.95% win ratio at Nancy

Pearson's first job in management - 16.66% win ratio at Carlisle

Hughes first job in management - 29.27% win ratio at Wales

Pellegrini first job in management - 32.61% win ratio at Universidad

Pochettino first job in management - 32.92% win ratio at Espanyol

Pulls first job in management - 28.97% win ratio at Bournemouth 

The list is pretty irrelevant really, 6 had pretty crap/duff starts into management. I get the being an assistant hasn't stopped others becoming experienced managers point you are trying to drill in to people....but you are highlighting managers that had several jobs before getting to where they are as well, Howe for example started in League 1 cutting his teeth. How many of those managers started life at clubs with the expectation of promotion? Mourinho barely stayed 5 minutes at his first 2 clubs before he ended up at Porto in the 2 horse race with Benfica.

I don't think I've seen anyone saying it's impossible that he will do well for us, most I've seen are either excited or being open minded and acknowledge the risk involved in this appointment, there is a risk in any manager appointment. Acknowledging the risk is slightly higher given this is his first job as Numero Uno isn't a bad thing.

​Not that many in the list with the calibre of winning trophies with the likes of Chelsea/PSG/Real either.

​But it is a risk we didn't have to take. A prudent administration would not have done the same thing.
