    Typical British manager

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50731748

    “No-nonsense, direct and a motivator of players”

    but surprisingly :

    Ex-Derby striker Marco Gabbiadini, part of the Rams side promoted to the Premier League, described Smith as "one of the great characters".

    "When I worked with him, he was up on the cutting edge of coaching," Gabbiadini told BBC Newcastle. "He'd go off and spend time away with clubs like Milan and see what they were up to."

    Wasn't he the first manager to beat Ferguson in English football? I'm sure his Oxford team beat United in Ferguson's first match.
