There really isn't a lot of talented coaches out there. Most of them are crap unfortunately. Who do you think we should target?What, like looking in the Cows paddock?
Agreed. Though I do commend his post game interview last week. He was absolutely dejected after their appalling performance, and immediately stated that changes will finally be made. A far cry from the #notfaroff bullshit we get with Green.Cleary is hardly the measuring stick for coaches though. He's terrible - forged out a career being Gus' puppet and now riding on the coattails of his son.
It could always be worse I suppose.
Plus none of the top coaches or top assistants looking for the top job will come to a club where they don't have full control of the team. Why would they?There really isn't a lot of talented coaches out there. Most of them are crap unfortunately. Who do you think we should target?
Woolf or Demitriou would be my picks, but are both unproven so could go either way. And like I said previously, if Green goes then Parr should follow. I'm not a fan of this head of football model. The coach should have full control of everything in terms of team selection, strategy and recruitment imo. I just have a funny feeling there are other people influencing things. The head office and football side of things should be entirely separate. Parr's role just seems to be a method of the powers at be to meddle into what is happening on field.
Yeah I know. Doesn't mean he's any good. His winning percentage is at 46%.He made the GF with NZ in 2011.
Is it though(I don't know)It’s hard to defend him with the current team selections. None of us can honestly comment as to what goes on behind the scenes as we all have NFI what goes on, but team selection and the onfield product of late is f***ing rubbish and they are both his responsibility.
Similar to how it's done in the NFL.From what I've read, it varies club to club in how much control coaches have over the football department.
I think maybe coaches having full control over the footbal department is an old school way of doing things and these days there are usually many more people involved in making the decisions. Here's an article with Gould talking about how Griffin was old school because he wanted to do everything himself - https://outline.com/De4Spb
