John Worsfold - lucky to be playing against bad teams


#6229

eggscellent idea.


#6230

sorry.


#6231

So how is Caracella going at Richmond?


#6232

Your workmate might be passing on the info correctly, doesn’t mean that who told him the info is correct though.


#6233

You’re spot on IT. Or it could be 100% true. Or somewhere in the middle.

I did find it quite deflating though.


#6234

Would be good to know what the player, who is a mate of your workmate’s mate thought of the assistant coaches.


#6235

I have never been at a club where a coach is 100% liked or disliked. You could ask 10 different players and get totally conflicting stories so for me it’s quite feasible that this player has given that as his opinion.


#6236

Yep.
Only difference is people will be happier to share that when it’s 0-2 than when you’re 2-0…


#6237

If they are indifferent about him and he doesn’t need to motivate them as they are self motivating amongs the group it might work. Or it might fail miserably.

As long as he has some decent tacticians around him and the line coaches can get the players playing the right way it could work.

My family and I have been on egg puns all week. Well played.

I am sick of everyone walking on egg shells in here and not calling it like it really is.


#6239

Sunny side


#6240

Over easy


#6241

LOL Are you sure your m8 wasn’t just reading this actual thread?


#6242

Definitely boiled.


#6243

Like I said, he’s not prone to BS. LOL.


#6244

Woosha “scrambled gameplan” Worsfold.


#6245

You don’t need the players to like you, just respect you. It’s the same everywhere where there is an employer-employee relationship, you need to be respected rather than being liked


#6246

Both is ideal though.


#6247

Sack him, sack the players, sack the board, sack everyone. Season is a disaster. pull down the Hangar. We’re gone forever.

Woosha being considered poor tactically is a widely held belief. I had a mate who was in our recruitment team for a few years (now at Freo in a promiment role) tell me that was the general consensus. He said he’s a decent man manager and usually keeps the message pretty clear and simple but compared to the other coaches in the game he’s behind the 8 ball tactically.
