They are one of the best teams to watch in the Football League given their expansive, possession-based style of play. Despite his gambit of being a bore — he spent rare days off during the international break having family time and going on dog walks rather than jetting off somewhere exotic — Manning has a more unorthodox career path than most in the country. We spent loads of time watching players and digging into their characters. Identifying a good player is easy — it’s more about building a squad with a good cultural fit, balancing youth and experience. ‘We let players have voices in meetings. We work on on-pitch communication but play clips in meetings and say to them, “What do you see? Break that down”. ‘We go through the same process whether we win 3-0 or lose 3-0.

He took over Oxford towards the end of last season with the club staring down the barrel of relegation to League Two, having picked up just one point in the last 10 games before long-serving Karl Robinson departed. Now they are promotion candidates. ‘Walking in, I wouldn’t say they were easy wins… but a fresh voice and new methods were needed, ’ he says. What did we do well? What can we do better? It creates a culture of improving every week. ‘Setting goals for the end of the season is too far away, we just go hard on the day to day.
