Depends really. Say for example he produces a shortlist of five...
Of the five, let's imagine number 1 and 2 make it clear they're not interested. He reports to the board that of the three interested candidates, there is little to choose but he has the preference order 3,4,5. Informal discussions ensue with all of them. Number 3 speaks to Moshiri and it goes very badly. Number 4 gets appointed. He is "not Brands' first choice", but the process is robust, led by Brands, and has a sensible outcome that Brands is not unhappy with.
Clearly this is all speculation, but so is seizing on a single phrase ('not Brands' first choice') when in reality nobody outside EFC seems to have a clear idea of what the process has been. It MAY have been shit. It MAY have been professionally executed, and led by Brands, and he may be happy with it, but still not have secured his first choice.
I'm chilled (until we sign a load of shite and lose our first 3 next season of course!)
new manager. If that’s not his role, why have a DoF at all?
of what is the point of Brands being there at all. Plus he’ll probably be sidelined on recruitment with the “super agent” dictating who we get…
