Matabele, i must intervene here mate. Football Manager has nothing to do with High Performance manager. Our Football Manager is in charge of player's affairs - eg; who gets an interview with which media, where they sleep on trips, what's the bus company they use, etcetera.
At Manly, the Football Manager and Media Manager roles have been combined somewhat - some would say to a worrying effect as they are quite different roles requiring very different qualifications.
The closest thing our club has to a High Performance Manager would be a combination of Crusher, in terms of player talent identification, and Des, who consults with doctors and the like at Narrabeen Sports Centre to find out where the players are lacking or excelling physically and mentally.
Our contract negotiations are handled by the CEO, who is advised by the coach and retention committee.
You have been mis-informed if you think our Football Manager has elements of Crusher's job - Crusher does his job and does it well, but our FM acts as a club spokesman in the media.
Should he comment about player retention or High Performance activities, it is because he has been contacted by the media and gives a direct quote from himself, similar to a spokesman of any company.
Personally, i do not blame you for mixing up who does what at the club since the position titles are a bit mixed thus ambiguous for supporters. It would be good of them to clear it all up rather than tie a bunch of them together with a broad title.
Daniel, can you remove Team OEE from my username?
