    if villa want garde and he wants his own staff then they should go and get them. no matter who fox recruited in the summer. the manager is a lot more important than a fitness coach who is probably fox’s mate anyway.
    otherwise garde will say a few months down the road – he could not bring his own people in.
    if villa can’t bring him in on his terms then they should look else.

    Tom Fox wants his own way? If I was in Mr Garde’s shoes and at this early stage they (AVFC) are putting obstacles in my way it’d be thanks but no thanks.
    And people wonder why we’re in the s**t*.

    I think Martinez had the same problem but in his case the Club(Everton) backed down unfortunately we’ve got some stubborn fuckers at the helm.

      We want you to keep us in the EPL on a shoestring – Ok.
      We want you to work with the players that we buy, you have no input – Ok.
      We want to purchase these players because of their potential resale value, not because it’s what the team requires – Ok.
      We don’t want invest jack into the club – Ok.
      Oh and we pick all your back room staff – WTF???

      More like d**k heads mate.

    As supporters we just have to remember Sherwood was still here only 3-4 days ago and appointments take time. From what I can tell Garde is the man – he more or less was ready to join from the very first day and now it is just a matter of getting his support staff in. No club wants to lose part of their staff, especially if they all signed new contracts in the summer, so I am not surprised Lyon/Metz have dug in. What club wouldn’t, so for me Fox is just pushing forward but with a soft touch which takes time. Plus, I am sure Garde will want to bring in some of their youth players going forward, so how does Fox raid a club like Lyon for staff members without burning our relationship later for players?

    As for anyone else coming in, supposedly Galtier, you would have to assume the club would have to pay to bring him in. The same with Moyes – who isn’t being considered or interested in the job. Logically it just doesn’t make sense to not pay out Lyon/Metz for the staff and instead go forward with a second/third option who would only cost more to bring in.

        Given we started hearing reports of Garde merely hours after Sherwood was sacked I would say that is right. That is also probably why Moyes initially threw his name in the running and immediately retracted it when he found out the club was looking elsewhere.

    No wonder we’ve got some many injuries if our fitness coach is from Arsenal! How many players have they had injured consistently over the past 10 years?!
