Know what you mean Kopite, but wherever you have two ‘managers’ working together, there’s always a dominant partner, and the other is looked on as the assistant.
I think Roy became the assistant.
I'm not sure Roy became the "assistant " in the clubs thinking
But I think Gerard definitely saw him as more of an inconvenience and didn't really treat him as an equal which is where the animosity comes from on Roy's side.
I mean it was never going to work, all it did was confuse players and cause a rift at the top
But I think Roy doesn't think that Gerard ever tried to make it work and was trying to push him out from minute 1
Clough and Taylor werent joint managers though at all, Clough was number 1, Taylor 2
They eventually fell out because of Cloughs attitude, drinking and arrogance and Taylor then tried to make it as a number 1 on his own right at Brighton but that didnt really work out
