It’s an often used comment about him, but why would you not try him and find out? Clubs seem to be more than happy to take a chance on sky old ex players. This bloke knows more about football than everyone else at our club put together. It’s a no brainer for me.
Less of a risk than Rob Page. I bet Page was chosen simply as the cheap option who wouldn't have a pop at the FAW

Absolutely travesty that he hasn’t been offered the Cymru managers job after he got us to Euro 16 semis.

I agree. Giggs eneded up being a good choice though and should still be in charge now.

He’s done it. Well done Osian!!


A courageous FAW would make him a decent offer now. Obviously won't happen as the FAW, who were doing so much right for so long, have been fucking up a lot lately

I am not sure that Roberts would have worked. Some people are just great coaches and struggle as managers. I just think it's a shame that he's not in the setup at all anymore.

People often make this comment about him and I don’t understand why. It’s not as if he’s had a go at management and failed, in fact quite the opposite, his first job as manager seems to be going very well.

Yeah, I'm basing it on not much more than when assistants get the manager's job at the place where they were assistants - they tend to struggle. I've always thought that, to go from assistant to manager is tough - but it's even tougher if it's at the same club (or country).

The relationship between a player and an assistant is different than that with the manager.
