Moniz vs Branston

Moniz reveals striker dispute with head of recruitment Branston.

 

"In front of the chairman, Guy Branston says we don't need a striker instead of confirming we need one or two forwards, you understand?

 

His job is to recruit or scout. It's about the club, not about egos who sometimes are busy for themselves. I always say how it is. You can't talk with two faces. The composition of the team is my responsibility".

 

Moniz wants a striker, we fans think a CB would be a wise move and yet Branston wants two forwards? (Wingers? Attacking CMs???) - It should be down to Ricardo to decide, he works with the players and it must be him who says what positions are our targeted positions are. It's for Guy to recommend players, right?

 

What do you make of this? Do you think these things should remain private? What is Guy Branston thinking?

Lets discuss on PON...

This is quite worrying if the people at the top aren't working together how can they expect the players to do so on the pitch. In my opinion this should have been kept in house and don't think dirty washing should be aired in public.

@RayTrew Moniz and Branson should sit down together and iron this out before it gets out of hand.

It's just a petty disagreement which should not have been aired within a interview.

This said, good managers are hard to find and Moniz appears to be of a different class. If he is supported, I can see it settling down and going onto bigger things. Scouts can always be replaced, if the man is right for the job, he will know the manager has the final say and knows the squad far better than he does. Guy Branston is paid to look at players, suggest them but he isn't one to boss the manager of a football club around.

I hate to say I told you so but...


 


The guy is a plank, as an example why was he at Northampton v Exeter last Saturday? We don't play either for ages and you wouldn't want to be doing any match reports that far in advance as anything can change before we play them, ideally you would do your initial match report 3 weeks in advance then follow this up with the match report from the game just before you play them.


 


I have my suspicions of why he was at Northampton but I'll let you all come to your own conclusions.

Give us a clue please.

What an absolute farce, Moniz can be forgiven because he is new to this game but the club should handle what they put out far better. To ban the Nottingham Post suggests that there may be more between the lines, perhaps it was that twit who asked the question and kept digging to get the dirt?

Still to ban them, I and no rightful minded fan could back because it's genuine fans who suffer.

The post won't give a crap about it.

Were these remarks made off the record? If yes, a few stern words with the NEP will have been justified. If not, Moniz has enough experience in management to know that airing dirty linen in public like this is not a good idea, regardless of whether he is right. He needs to assert authority over his team, including Guy Branston, and that should be done in private.

During a laid back press release, NEP reported what was said and although I do feel the Post could have been a bit diplomatic. Considering our start of the season and with the new "working" relationship this could have been handled better.
