There are some who fail to grasp the importance of a good football manager to a team of young men.
The manager is all important. He makes the difference.
You can have a team of good players with a bad manager and will not suceed.
You can have a team of average players with a good manager and you will do ok.
If you have both bad players and a poor manager you are doomed.
If you have both good players and good manager, Bingo !
Relate it to the workplace. All of us at some time have worked under a poor, inept boss. Be it a manager, foreman, supervisor or proprietor. Someone in a job they just have not got the capability to do.
What happens? Our work eventually suffers. We are not motivated, we have no enthusiasm, we get dispirited.
We do not look forward in going to work, and eventually may leave.
Unless our 'boss gets replaced by someone better at the job, we then become refreshed, motivated, enthusiastic, with a new spring in our step.
And so it is with football players and their managers.
That is why Coyle has to go. To give these players a chance to enjoy performing. To give us the fans a chance to once again enjoy watching our team. To give our club a chance of survival.
Bowyer showed what could be done with players of limited ability. We over performed.
He got the best out of a average bunch of journeymen and bargain buys.
When all said and done Lambert didn’t, and some have failed to live up to expectation's elsewhere without Bowyer.
Gone well since sacking Bowyer, hasn’t it !
But we are where we are. In big trouble.
We need a new manager, to make the difference.
