Quiz; name the players Lee Sinnott signed for Port Vale

Recommended Posts

Looks like Sinnot was a good scout but he wasn't an effective manager delivering up to expectations.

A lot went on between Sinnot and Glover/Jackson behind the scenes. Jackson had wanted Glover as manager and at one point was allowing him to veto signings. Glover fell out big time with Foyle. Then there was the joint manager period with Porter which got so bad Porter wouldn't speak to Glover. There was a night match with Porter and Glover on opposite sides of the dugout where neither spoke to the other once all night. They should have cleared the decks and let Sinnot bring his own coaching staff in. Bratt was trying to keep the peace with Jackson by convincing Sinnot to keep Glover.

I didn't know any of that. Sometimes I think new managers / clubs make huge mistakes at the outset with clear outs and David Moyes at Man Utd comes to mind. But in any walk of life people have to be pulling together in the right direction to be successful. Sinnot deserved a clean slate and a fair run at the job and it looks like he didn't get that at all.
