It wasn't his second season though was it.... 12 games of one, then one preseason and full season. Its not two seasons, never was never will be no matter how you try and phrase it.
It doesn't make a difference, it was just a way of phrasing it. His objective for those 12 games of his first season was play-offs minimum. No matter how you try and phrase it. His objective for the second season he had been involved in, and first full season, was promotion.
Yes and those expectations/ objectives are ridiculous and the reason we won't succeed with this model.
12 games, players down tools because Evans leave... come in and implement your way of playing and get them over the line... not realistic.
In one season, build your own squad big and good enough to sustain your way of playing for the entire year whilst aiming for top 3 minimum, oh you have to do so with 5/6 players you cant get rid off. Another unrealistic expectation but one we were only 90 mins away from achieving.. and sacked the manager who got us so close and now were a million miles away because we couldn't see any sense.
I'm assuming he knew the objectives when he took the job. As I say, whether you feel the objectives were realistic or not is up to you.
Shouldn't be up to me, the club needs to do better in this department. Set realistic targets, and build for the long term... its been ill thought short term for the past three years.
Hopefully Coughlan is the end of that.[/quote]
That I agree with. The recruitment is a shambles, the club have no idea about analytics or anything of that nature. We're very much a 'Manager runs the club' type of club, which some will say is a good thing, but it doesn't match up with a long term mentality.[/quote]
Exactly.. managers come and go but the clubs transfer policy and way of playing should always stay the same.
