Sainsbury did a good job on a tricky customer, he had the pace to get across and stop him getting the ball most times. If it had been Degenek instead he would have let him have the ball every time and then got beaten straight afterwards.
DeGenek had yet another shocker, he was pressured into some big mistakes later in the game.”

Why Arnold would keep him?

Yes, I remember that.

Just Desserts. DeGenek the one man disaster zone eliminated the team as I predicted.
I wouldn;t even have him in an A-league squad, he just is not good at anything.”

Right after Ange Postecoglou’s socceroos failed to win the Thais in Thailand in the 2018 World Cup qualifying match, Graham Arnold put his hand up for the coaching job. He thought it would be easy. However, after 12 years, Graham Arnold remains as bad. Why would FFA give him a second chance?

What in the world happened to the Wanderers, Roar and Mariners?

There are many reasons in Mulvey’s sacking, including poor results.

One of the other reasons was that Mulvey had a 5-stars journey in Europe in search of a recruit to fill up the vacancy after Berisha’s departure but ended up with a player who played in the junior team for most of the time during Mulvey’s remaining time in BR. He was Mensur Kurtiši.

There is not enough defenders now. This is shown by the fact that a 19 years of age has to play a very important position, centre back.

Whatever happened to supporting your team no matter what?

On 16 October 2009, Ange Postegolou took over Brisbane Roar coaching job. Then, BR had lost 10, drawn 3 and won 5 only.

In his second season with BR, Postegolou had only lost one match, 0-3 to MV.

What is saying here is that don’t expect a new coach to make good results immediately. Give him time.

Mathematically, it is quite okay if Daren Davis can win 5 from the remaining 14 matches. Just wait and see.

“training pitch was too hard”

Remarkable!

What in the world happened to the Wanderers, Roar and Mariners?

Yes!

Avram is 34 and about to retire.

Luke DeVere is good. His style of play is similar to that of the retired Jay North, very destructive. Should a coach wants the team to play out from the back, DeVere may not cope with the tactic totally.

The concerns is about backing up and injuries as the money saved from JA’s departure is limited. So, better to sign another good defender. Also, if the opponent is not leading they push up more. As such, Adam Taggart and his teammates have more space to do attacks in front.

By the way, no one knows when Avram Papadopulous can return and when will there be another centre back got red carded.

Probably, the Indonesian conglomerate, the Bakrie Group, has set a budget. So, there is no point in asking for big money to hire a high profile coach. With the current squad, even Jose Mourino cannot help, for sure. Then, why not just sign a good defender for the rest of the season?

There should be a better defender than the un-experienced young Aaron Reardon at least. He is just too young.

Why Aaron Reardon had priority over Devere? Only insiders know.

Anyway, sign a good defender in case there may be more injuries to come.

So, next time, when you write, write an introduction, a body and a conclusion such that your idea is real explicit.

Do you need to do that, writing an essay? Do we have to do that in a blog in The Roar?

What you have confirmed with your original writing is that “JA, his brother and D Davies should all resign together”. Thank! No one will misinterpret your original writing for sure.

If you were JA would you ask all the member of the coaching team to re-sign all together? If so, why and why not? What are the implications?

Until the cause of JA’s resignation is known. All are speculations. It is okay to do speculations as long as they are reasonable.

“Confirmed Roar fans tell me that much has been accomplished off the field and I cannot argue with that …” What has been accomplished? Can you reveal it? If not, why you tell people there is such an achievement in your original writing if it cannot be revealed?

Regarding the socceroos’s long ball, there was the wording “There is an example here”. Read the writing again, please. This is not “jumping to a comment”. It is about “copy the multitude of systems being used elsewhere using players not skilled enough to carry out instructions and the fan will soon let you know” in your original writing.

“it is not only a centre-back they need, two top class fullbacks,two fast ,mobile, clever midfielders and at least one winger would be a good start to getting them back to former glory,but there has been very little evidence of that class of recruitment these last 4 years”
Can the money saved from JA for the rest of the season be enough to cover for 4-years?
Simply, the money saved for the rest of the season can sign a better defender.

You are talking about long term remedy while I am talking about the rest of the season.

Let me bring up some data I have quoted before.

“Take a look on the data:

2014/15 Victory’s GA = 31 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2015/16 AU’s GA = 28 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2016/2017 Sydney FC’s GA = 13 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2017/2018 Sydney FC’s GA = 22 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2018/19 Glory’s GA = 10 (lowest) and leading on the ladder after 10 rounds.

The data set suggests working from the defense first.”

Whatever happened to supporting your team no matter what?

ps

“copy the multitude of systems being used elsewhere using players not skilled enough to carry out instructions and the fan will soon let you know”

That has one more interpretation. Brisbane Roar should prefer to hire a coach who has good proven Australian league coaching experience (whether A-league, State League or Women League) rather than a coach overseas who needs high pay and good players. Unless the owner is prepared to raise the budget to do so.

By the way, is it not usual to sign a coach with a 3 years long contract?

Whatever happened to supporting your team no matter what?

“much has been accomplished off the field”
What is that?

“Firstly a manager resigns ,not unexpectedly , but at least two of his support staff have stayed in their jobs. Strange. ”
What is strange? Can you give more than a numbers of examples that a head coach would resign with other coaches together?

Probably, high officials visiting Jakarta is about bigger splash of money for a high profile coach. Ange Postecoglou, as a coach, went to Indonesia to seek for money to strengthen his squad after poor results in ACL before.

The money saved from JA’s resignation should be used to get a good defender. When a team has good defense, the front third will open more. Hence, there are more space for the strikers. I just wonder why Roars did not sit back when they were 2-0 up. The same happened to the Mariners in the match vs Phoenix.

“Play attractive,exciting ,winning football and fans will turn up”.
Yes!

“copy the multitude of systems being used elsewhere using players not skilled enough to carry out instructions and the fan will soon let you know”
Yes!
There is an example here. Socceroos played possession based football in the match vs Jodan. Then an expert said that that was like licking an ashtray. It is easy. Long ball!. For a while there was a nick name called “long ball Luke Wilkshire”. Long ball is not necessarily bad. It just depends. Subsequently, Socceroos got 3 goals in the match vs Palestine by using long balls.

Whatever happened to supporting your team no matter what?

You are okay, Drew. Maybe, you are new here in “The Roar”.

Could Olympic become Brisbane's next A-League club?

This is a very difficult tournament. Firstly, the golden generation has left no remnants.

Secondly, there will be many good competitive opponents because the Arabian teams will play extraordinarily well home. It is more difficult than Ange Postecoglou to qualify for the 2018 World Cup because the qualifying process was home-and-away. So, should Graham can defend the Asian Cup, he is the best Socceroos coach.

According to record, Arabian teams have won 5 times from 8 numbers of Middle East hosting.

Good luck to Graham Arnold.

What have the Socceroos learned from previous Asian Cup campaigns?

What have the Socceroos learned from previous Asian Cup campaigns?

Over confidence!

No strategic approach!

There will be no easy match at UAE.

Arabian teams will play much better in their territories. The home effect is shown by Al-Ain’s winning over Team Wellington, Espérance de Tunis and River Plate in the Club World Cup last month.

What have the Socceroos learned from previous Asian Cup campaigns?

The Sunday match for Brisbane Roar is important, as it shows how Darren Davis handles his team home.

Reportedly, on 3 Jan 2019 by Courier Mail, Roar’s managing director David Pourre and Football Director Pedj Radinovic will fly to Jakarta next week to talk to the owner about the long-term replacement of Aloisi.

On the report, there are numerous applicants for the vacancy, including Robbie Fowler.

However, why bring in another transition that quickly? Should a new coach is hired there will be another change in late January or early February.

Why not use the money to sign a new player, a good defender? In this season, three good defenders have left. They are Jade North, Corey Brown and Ivan Franjic but Aloisi has just replaced with one, Stefan Nigro. The number of easy goals conceded reflects the situation.

Should Darren Davis coaches well in the next match against Glory, the transition should better be at the end of this season. So far, he is okay. As seen on the match against Newcastle Jets, his response to the progress of a match is quick and suitable. The substations of Caletti, D’Agostino and Wenzel-Halls show that.

The Roar's A-League expert tips and predictions: Round 11

In agreeing with your saying, I read the Courier Mail this morning and I know which player said JA will be a world class coach. The player is McKay.

However, your saying of Mark Rudan’s squad is a bit deviating from the fact.

Just because of his remarkable performance in leading and coaching lately, I have done a small study on him to find out more facts about him.

For the squad of Phoenix, there has been a big change. There are 10 players in and 12 players out. As for Glory, 8 ins and 5 outs. Another new coach, WSW’s coach makes 9 ins and 8 outs. Phoenix has a big change.

Maybe, people want to compare the starting lining ups. Okay! Should we compare the Phoenix’s lining ups of first rounds in 2017 with 2018, we can see that there are big differences.

Phoenix 2017, first round:

Smith
Galloway, Mullen, Rossi, Abbas
Ridention, Paracki
Krishna, Rufer, Vidosic
Kaludjerovic

Phoenix 2018, first round:
Kurto
Taylor, Durante, Doyle
Fenton, Mandi, Rufer, Cacace
Singh, Williams
Krishna

Kurto, Fenton, Mandi, Singh and Williams are new.

Half changed.

Then, I try to verify the idea that coaches of a defending player background, coach better. However, that is not right as Graham Arnold was a striker.

Still I believe that good defending is very important as there has been claims that JA has never succeeded in making BR’s defence good enough.

Take a look on the data:

2014/15 Victory’s GA = 31 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2015/16 AU’s GA = 28 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2016/2017 Sydney FC’s GA = 13 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2017/2018 Sydney FC’s GA = 22 (lowest) and won the premiership.
2018/19 Glory’s GA = 10 (lowest) and leading on the ladder after 10 rounds.

The data set suggests working from the defence first.

However, it is still mysterious about why Graham Arnold can coach so successfully with the philosophy of defending being important during his stay in Mariners and Sydney FC.

Five talking points from A-League Round 10

Mayne Rail Yards?

It is an area which is well developed around. It is not a place not well developed like Tarneit where WMG proposes to build a stadium.

Why would Brisbane City Council build another stadium? Cannot see a reason.

Five scenarios for privately funding a stadium in Brisbane

Privately funding a new stadium?

There are just two branches of discussions. Firstly, BR is to build their own stadium. Secondly, a new A-league club to do so.

Why BR has to build a stadium? Apparently, the cost of renting the venue is high. However, where is the break-even point? Can BR start to make money if the crowd number is 18,000 (like the Brisbane Lions)? There are no figures to see or for studying. However, it may be possible to gain insight by comparing numbers from Europe as numbers from Japan and China seem not appropriate.

According to the statistics portal (https://www.statista.com/statistics/261213/european-soccer-leagues-average-attendance/), the average attendance number in Italy and France is around 21,000.

So, the target number of 18,000 in average is reasonable. This is supported by the experience that a crowd of 18,000 in Suncorp makes spectacular atmosphere.

Therefore, start making money or not at an average crowd number of 18,000 depends on other factors: management, quality of football; and the stadium, etc.

Poor management would lead to poor quality of football. Poor management would lead to wanting to move to a not as expensive venue. In turn, they will lead to lower crowd number. Then, spirally down, it is a dog chasing its tail.

Suncorp is the best rugby and soccer stadium in Australia, no doubt. So, should BR move somewhere else, the management has to study the trading off. Can the gains in moving balance or overtake the losses?

In business, the is a famous idiom: go big or go home. So, why to go to a smaller stadium with money out of BR’s pocket in advance first? Why not think of better football to bring the crowd number to over 22,000?

Can the number of 22,000 be reached? Yes! When the football is of high quality, number of locals increases. So do the visitors. I have seen big crowds of Jets’s fans (2007 – 2008), Glory’s fans (not the finale match) and WSE fans coming to support their team in Suncorp before. Before!

If you run a restaurant and facing deficit, you don’t raise the price, lowering the food or move to somewhere else.

It is the management, the management to organize and plan, to provide high quality football, to do marketing…

The stadium is just one of the Ps, should reference be made to the 7 Ps of Marketing, Queensland, https://www.business.qld.gov.au/running-business/marketing-sales/marketing-promotion/marketing-basics/seven-ps-marketing.

The second stream of discussion is a new A-league club to build its new private stadium.

Recently, the Brisbane bids for an A-league licence have exited early probably because of having no fund for a new stadium like the Western Melbourne Group which seems to have property developers to go hand in hand.

Anywhere in Brisbane area that developers would like to invest to build a new stadium to boost property market? Doesn’t seem one.

Would it be better to focus on better football? When WSW had good football, they got a new stadium. Definitely, will go to have a look on the architecture.

Five scenarios for privately funding a stadium in Brisbane

Play like needing warming up like Italians did in many tournaments.

Don’t be over confident, like in the 2007 and 2011 Asian Cup.

Reserve energy for the possible 6 matches in a short period of time.

Take off the major players at the suitable time and don’t let the opponents get well prepared on the strengths and weakness.

In Doha, Australia won Uzbekistan 6 – 0. That was too much. Should substitute and retreat after 3 – 0 to avoid injuries and reserve energy.

Osciek talked about momentum but that scared the opponents.

That happened months ago when Socceroos were doing the the warm up matches.

The winnings of 4–0 over Czech Republic and 2 -1 over Hungary made France and Demark cautious.

Australia smack Oman 5-0, but Asian Cup predictions remain foggy

Victory and Phoenix fight out seesawing 1-1 draw

“When one examines his CV, he has little or no experience in coaching a team at a professional level”

Mark Rudan has not but his Wellington Phoenix is in the course of turning around.

José Mourinho was an interpreter.

Aloisi quits Brisbane Roar

“John Aloisi paid the ultimate price for assembling a disjointed squad at Brisbane Roar”

“Aloisi’s “bravery” in calling it quits”, Bleiberg

“leaking goals”

“Avraam Papadopoulos is a good defender but (at 34) isn’t getting any better with the years. Luke Devere is injured, Daniel Bowles is half centre-back and half full-back and Jacob Pepper is a converted midfielder.

“If you compare that to other top teams like Perth Glory, Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory, they have an abundance of good defenders. ”

Why good players have left? Why potential players have not join BR?

“In midfield you have Alex Lopez, Thomas Kristensen and Matt McKay. All three are very good but none are super physical and none of them are a natural number 10. They are all what could be called 50-50 midfielders.”

“None are goalscorers either and they are too similar. There’s something missing in midfield.”

“Jose Mourinho and the third season syndrome…in Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid”

Third season syndrome

“I would advise any young coach not to get into a comfort zone anywhere and try and embrace fresh challenges when they arise, especially after two seasons or more at the same club.”

Comfort zone

“Third season syndrome” and “comfort zone” explain how and why Ange Postecoglou has been behaving? How has he been in Japan?
