Sheffield Wednesday have added James Shan to Darren Moore’s backroom team at Hillsborough, reliable journalist Alex Miller has confirmed.
The Lowdown: Moore doing well overall
Moore may not be doing a perfect job but the positives appear to outweigh the negatives as he seeks to guide Wednesday back into the Championship.
Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Port Vale, a significant update has emerged regarding a new addition to his management team.
The Latest: Wednesday hire James Shan
Taking to Twitter, Miller confirmed that Shan has been added to Moore’s coaching setup, having worked with him during their shared time at West Bromwich Albion.
The journalist tweeted:
“A wee bombshell dropped by Darren Moore at the end of this afternoon’s pre-Port Vale presser. Wednesday have added James Shan to their backroom staff. DM worked with him previously at WBA.”
The Verdict: Keeping things fresh
It is always important to keep freshening things up in the coaching staff, ensuring things don’t grow stale and players don’t tire of hearing from the same individuals all the time.
It is something that Sir Alex Ferguson mastered during his time as Manchester United boss, changing his assistant manager numerous times, and it is good to see Moore making tweaks.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
Yes, of course!
No, not good enough!
The fact that he and Shan have already worked together bodes well, suggesting that they know each other inside out, and it will hopefully aid the Owls’ promotion push, starting with today’s trip to Vale Park.
