Jamie Fullarton in Skircoat Shed Posted August 8, 2019 · Report reply 8 hours ago, Flea said: Playing an injured Odelusi and Simon Lenighan over Cameron King for example... It may just be me, however it appears that the players all seem to be a lot happier at the moment. We have the likes of Staunton who is clearly a very good footballer now being able to express himself. We have an attacking outlet and intent. The thing JF got right last season was how good we were defensively - however he got us great at the back by sacrificing any chance of playing football, by having everyone behind the ball, by killing creativity, by having every move, throw, kick pretty much set down in routine. Every corner, every free kick, every throw was exactly the same - and if something wasn't working we kept doing it regardless. Two games in to this season and Wild has already done something that JF failed to do in his entire spell here - make a sub that changed the game for the better. Within minutes of Allen and Earing coming on on Saturday we took control of the game. We have also used all three subs in both games so far, compared to JF's continual refusal to sub players, even when they could barely move through exhaustion (Again, look back to the 4 games in a week farce that ended up with players blowing out of their arse 5 mins into the game at Torquay). Under Wild I am genuinely optimistic of a very good season. I honestly feel players like Odelusi - who going on last seasons showing would go down as one of our worst players ever - could actually show they are of worth and use to us under a manager that seems to inspire the players to want to play. In the limited time Samni has played this season its almost like having a totally new player. If the BoD were to say "We are giving the manager X amount to spend to improve the team" I would feel more at ease now that Wild could get some decent talent in rather than had it been JF. I do feel JF has what it takes to be a very good coach and when he was coaching the players pre match in the warm ups he looked like he knew what he was doing and looked comfortable. To me however he didn't have the transferable skills with management and I am now really interested to see what his next move will be - as in will he go back into management or focus more on coaching. I'm also left wondering who would offer JF a management job considering his walking out and failure to build a squad over the summer for us. Brilliant assessment. From now on you shall be the Professor in my eyes.
