I mentioned on another thread that our biggest single failing this season has been the losing/wasting/frittering away possession of the ball.
Who, in the backroom staff, is responsible for this basic failing?
It is not customarily the manager’s job – so who is doing a really poor job of preparing footballers for matches in terms of their skills?
Although I have coached a little across three different sports, I have never done any football. But you show/demonstrate techniques to people – don’t you? Or is football a different entity?
One of my beefs is that so few players are trained to turn 180 degrees when in possession. Only Gilliead has done this over the last season.
It is a fairly basic skill to impart – it’s hardly a Cruyff turn. The thing is that games turn on 180 degree turns.
It is common in Championship level matches. Many years ago, I remember Lawsy pushing this at one point (League Two?) and the side immediately improved in CM and up front.
Who is not doing the fundamental coaching? – I really don’t know which of the ‘coaching’ staff to blame and whose head really should be on a silver platter.
