    It's difficult for me to give you an accurate translation/explanation but I'll try to!
    "Il n'en menait pas large" means something like "he didn't know what he was doing", "the situation wasn't under his control".

    The expression "en mener large" is only used in the negative form to express a state of total confusion/loss of control.

    If I wasn't crystal clear, tell me! I'll try to make things clearer for a next hypothetical time!
