Currently, there is rightly a huge amount of focus on what might and might not be happening during the transfer window. Who we bring in is massively important, but even more important is what we do with them once they arrive. In football, you can buy talent, skill and experience, but you cannot ever buy application. It is assumed that players paid tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of pounds per week will apply themselves as a matter of course. However, in football, the only thing that assumptions get you is the sack. Ultimately, the thing that distinguishes average managers from good managers and good ones from great ones is that ability to get players to apply themselves and perform to and above their potential. You may say that it is too early to judge Ole's powers of motivation, but don't forget that Ole was United manager for half the 2018/19 season. The fact is that Premier League managers have been sacked in half the time that 'Ole has been at the wheel'. Can Ole do a Pochettino and turn a £22m Heung-Min Son into an £80m rated midfielder and Spurs into Champion's League finalists; or a Klopp and turn an £8m Andy Robertson into a £80m rated defender and Liverpool into Champion's League winners? Is Ole a manager that players will revere and respect like Sir Alex, or is he one that players will be inspired by and hold in admiration like Pep? Or is he one that players will love and run through walls for like Klopp? Or is he none of these? Does Ole have the motivational skills and smarts to turn average talent into good talent and mould good talent into a great team?
