Players impressed with Dempster's calm management style

This is as far away as you can get from Steve Evans. And it worked well too. Players liked what they saw of how Dempster handled being 2-0 down at half-time.

Hang on, didnt I read on here that a PA photo man had tweeted somewhere that he had heard Demps going mental at half time.

Which is the fake news story?

Good question. There were definitely harsh words exchanged between players before he eventually went in there so maybe this guy just heard shouting and assumed who it was?

This is not a criticism, merely an observation;

Pre-season games and Newport we've played better 2nd half, you won't always get the luxury of getting into / back into the game 2nd half.

It will work to a point. Think of day to day work, a new calm gaffer is great for morale. But eventually folk take liberties. He definitely needs to stamp his mark, and he will learn I am sure. I was given a first manager job at 27 and it was a sharp learning curve

It's a good tactic for managers to not go straight in the dressing room and to let the players have a few minutes to let off steam with each other. In the meantime the manager can have a chat with his No 2 to work out why things may not be going to plan and then act accordingly. Sometimes changing one or two players and/or the formation can make a big difference. JD and LG's substitutions and going to four at the back worked really well in the 2nd half and it was nice to see a Plan B pay off.

I was impressed with JD and LG on Saturday. They obviously had a plan going into the game and weren't too stubborn to recognise it wasn't working.

Saturday will be really interesting, looking forward to seeing the formation and if we attack from the off.

So far why I’ve seen from Dempster is that more often than not the starting line-up and/or tactics have not worked for the first third of games. However, he has been able to adapt effectively as a game goes on. I think Lee Glover has played a massive part in that too.

However, he will obviously not want things to continue as they have so far, giving away a third of a game before working out what to do.
