Rob Edwards is one win away from becoming Premier League manager after a “wild season”, but says taking over from Nathan Jones has been easy.
Edwards, a former FA youth manager, led Forest Green to promotion from League Two last year, earning him a Championship job at Watford – only to be sacked after 10 league appearances.
“People ask me for a winning formula, but that comes down to good people,” Edwards, 40, said ahead of Saturday’s play-off final against Coventry. “At Forest Green there were good people, good players, a plan and time. And that’s why I left the FA.
“I went against my best judgment with the next one but I’m back on track with this one.
“Anyone could have come in and done what I did, it was pretty easy really. I’m just lucky they picked me.
“There’s a lot of love here. It’s not just about football, it’s about people’s lives.
“I feel like it’s been like this for a while.
