Was he part of that honours board (last thing they won) 4th division team?

Yes he was.  Team with Keith Edwards etc.  When I first got into football as a kid he was a decent player for them.  Played three or four years at Rotherham as well.

Stange with ages of managers and how it's changed over the years.  Pulis is 62, Hughton is 62, Warnock 72, Hodgson 73.  Back in the day Clough seemed ancient when he retired yet was 58.  Bob Paisley was only early 60s yet it seemed like he was ancient.

i think he was just after that, after they got relegated on st.givens day 😊WTF:

Which was a very funny day, especially when the rumour made them think that they were stopping up for about 2 minutes

 

My mates took me that day stood on their kop trying not to laugh... priceless

Pulis obviously rates him highly - that’s good enough for me at the minute 

Jobs for his mate. I understand appointing him as a scout but now promoted to asst manager is rather odd.

People like Trusson who have been around the game and in dressing rooms years understand the game, it's not some massive drastic switch where suddenly he's going to be out of his depth. He's TP's new right hand man and he's worked with him many o'times.

 

Quick look on his website, 40 years experience in various roles from playing to scouting and coaching, He's scouted many many games so will have a good understanding a knowledge of players for this level, recently been with Celtic, the guy is no mug, very experienced guy who can offer us a great benefits.

 

Tony Pulis is known to take training himself, so can't see Trusson doing much on that front anyway as well as any other coaches he brings in.

 

Looks a good CV and on paper a really good appointment for us.

Maybe a bit of role reversal as the assistant usually does the coaching with the manager doing the other stuff.  But not TP. Hopefully he will oversee quality recruitment

Odd appointment to me but will back what Pulis thinks. Just hoping it doesn’t mean that he’s not been able to attract more established coaches to join him

Assistant Manager not coach. I think there may be a difference in what he is coming to do

Without wanting to pursue an ageism agenda, do we think that the two of them will finally get our “young and dynamic” recruitment drive up and running? There’s not much evidence that Pulis has previously taken that route, but maybe this guy will
