If his name was Frank Farrell, this would be much more underwhelming
Many a true word spoken in jest. I cannot see why on earth you’d go for him over someone like McKenna, yet many who think McKenna would be ‘underwhelming’ are creaming their pants over this guy, whose sides score barely any goals. They just want someone hipster I think.

Plays same style as RDZ but better defensively.
It’d certainly be a little odd with him managing older players than himself (Milner).

Looking at the Nice stats, the defensive record is impressive compared to RDZ. He mostly plays a 4-1-2-3 with a specific defensive midfielder protecting the back 4. His full backs don’t seem too adventurous. I’d quite like him to bring Mel Bard as cover for Pervis if he joins.

He will often play strikers in his front 3. He always plays a left footer at right wing.

We’d certainly need to change our transfer targets if this guy got the job. We really don’t have a fully formed defensive midfielder currently, I’m not sure his system would work without one.

We don’t have any defensive midfielders , any new manager coming in will want at least one

He would fit right in with the current Brighton management style.

I know nothing about him other than what’s been in the papers. Report I read said he’s quite defensive, which doesn’t seem a good fit for what we do, whether RDZ recommends him or not. Honestly, I think we can do better than someone with as little experience as Farioli. If we’re going for young, rising star I’d much prefer McKenna who does at least have experience working at the top level in English football.
