Probably not the biggest surprise in the world, but the club have announced that Chris Ramsey and Les Ferdinand have left the club.
With a new management structure, it was always likely that one or both would leave, with the only other option being that they reverted to working with the development players, but after the talk that both were looking at joining WBA with Sherwood, the writing seemed to be on the wall that they either were not wanted or wanted out to pursue other options.
Personally, I didn`t have a problem with either of them, as so often we make a judgement call on individuals or tar them with the same brush as others who we don`t like or who have failed. Les was clearly close to Sherwood, and as a result, was probably too close to remain, but Ramsey has been at the club for ten years, so should we be disappointed that he has decided to move on, or was the time just right for both parties?
As fans should we have been so anti Ferdinand? I have to wonder if just having a close confidant to act as a buffer and support for a manager is actually sensible? Do we as fans know how much he was actually earning and what he contributed behind the scenes? Perhaps if he takes the pressure off of the manager and makes his life easier, that in itself is of merit. Ramsey is highly rated as a coach and perhaps his promotion wasn`t ideal for the clubs stability from the U21s down?
With Stefan Freund confirmed as staying, I do wonder if he will take on Sherwood`s old role in development, as I like many, still struggle to see how and where he fits in with Pochettino and his new coaches, but perhaps we are missing something...
