    I don't know anything about him other than his brief and not-inspiring stint at Edmonton and his current role as Chairman of an EPL team. Seems like a strange ass move to me. What makes him a good choice?

    He's a very smart guy, was always ahead of his time. Squeezed a lot out of nothing coaching Switzerland.

    Has some real insight on leadership.

    Coached a shit team in Edmonton for about three months.

    I thought Housely was a horrible coach but I mean... they basically picked another unknown coach. Makes no sense to me.

    Probably.

    But I think Housley catches way too much of the blame there.
