Who will go first
« on: November 27, 2017, 10:20:21 PM »
I'm beginning to think Muscat will be the first to go. Victory just aren't used to their team being so abysmal.

The Wello coach has a bit of leeway, so I think they'll wait until the end of the year.

MC have the capacity to easily change coaches, but they may try to repair the situation with players first.

With the Bakries in charge, I can't see John getting the can until we are sitting in last position, six points behind 9th. Going on Wellos current form and their upcoming cames, that's not going to happen for a while.

Gombau has a job ahead of him, but his reputation should keep him safe for a while.

The owners are our issue.

The Bakries got rid of the Managing Director recently. Didn't they also get rid of Mulvey?

They have form.

Aloisi would be a firmer favourite for the axe than Muscat.

Mulvey was removed by the Dobson-Stead clique with the distant support of Chris Fong.

I think the removal of the GM was justified considering the lack of progress in finding effective sponsors beyond his own car rental business.

Interestingly, this round sees the four bottom teams playing each other. Victory and we may be sharing the bottom of the ladder if the games go by form. A good win by Wello at home is on the cards, with Milligan still out.

Kenny Lowe's gotta be on thin ice too. Considering the amount of years he's been at the helm, the squad he's got and them currently in 8th he's gotta be getting nervous.
A champion is one who gets up when he can't.

KL's record is 8th, 7th (instead of 3rd), 5th, and 5th.
What those results don't show is the youth development and smart recruitment Kenny has overseen.

Just looking at the players he shed in his first season shows how much he has improved the team. He is also more of a media friendly personality than Aloisi, and I expect the fans are pretty happy with him and what he puts on the field for them.

Us, on the otherhand, we are disappointed all the time, apparently.

Given only four teams miss out on the six, and Wello and WSW are also underwhelming, you would think at least one of Brisbane, MC and PG has a reasonable chance to make the six.
The problem for Roar and MV is the ACL campaign travel and schedule is unforgiving. As I said this time last year, not qualifying would be a blessing for us. MV are guaranteed the six games. KL's side has the advantage.
Putting aside that one major factor with Roar's problems are the self inflicted issues as a result of  injuries of older players and the longer recovery times for which JA has to shoulder the responsibility,  I think that what JA has said in his media conferences  is fair enough. And to be within shout of the six is not far off as good as we could expect.

The Beautheac debacle. I still don't know who stuffed up, but most likely admin.
The fitness issues and poor preparation. You have to look at admin and the training staff as much as anyone. Zero points from three games.
The Papa debacle. What are we saying? That JA should instruct players "For God's Sake don't spit!" That is down to the player.
The VAR debacle. We did seem not to get the rub of the green with that one for critical decisons. But we were not the only ones.
The TK neural issue does seem a bit freakish.
Losing Broich, Macca, Petratos and Borrello. That was always going to be hard.

Unfortunately for JA he needed to get a good start especially with ACL, and he is well and truly behind the 8 ball. But to say this is all down to bad coaching?
Aside from the Holman recruitment last year, which I have to say was a huge disappointment, and the gamble on a few older players not paying off as i mention above, I can't say he has been terrible.

Clubs will certainly be having a big think about their coaches with Popovic getting the sack in Turkey (unless he gets the Roos job, of course).

Chopping and changing coaches does not always help. Stable management/owners is fundamental to success to enable managers to concentrate on football and to plan long term. MVC and SFC have that advantage over roar.

A league is hard to be consistent due to success bringing: I) ACL as a handicap and II) salary cap and squad restrictions.

MVC - Muscat has had a disrupted start with players out. With their full team playing they should start winning until the ACL catches up them due to their lack of depth.

Perth - KL has underperformed given the lack of ACL and good squad assembled. Again, most of his stars have been out (Castro, Keogh, Taggert + main CBs). When they get all their players back they will be dangerous as finals especially if MVC, SFC and us are playing ACL.

WSW - gombau has only started.

JA - Kristensen back should make a big difference. Im interested to see how he rotates the squad given the short turn arounds. Risk of aggravating injuries if they play too much. Will Bowles play full 90 mins against MVC and Perth.
JA has an 'understanding' of the Bakries, worked through the difficulties of the ACL and knows the youth players. He should be given the chance to reshape the sqaud completely. He has already managed Broich leaving then it will come for Theo, Mckay, North..not easy.
