To my mind, 'freelance' means self employed, going it alone and, effectively, managing yourself.
The omens aren't good.
After all, the first time Freddie managed himself, he ballooned up to 18 stone and had to have Bobby Simpson read him the riot act.
The next time he had any managerial responsibility, he stayed up drinking all night and turned up at nets the next morning still under the influence.
And finally, even with a reduced management role, he then nearly drowned himself in the West Indies.
