What an experienced manager brings to a club

Post by pleasureboy60 » 20 Feb 2018, 11:08

Like many Poshies,I watched and was routing for Wigan to beat Man City last night in the FAC. On paper it should have been a complete mismatch,but it was a case of a workmanlike team,committed to the cause and coached by a manager who is experienced at league one level and who knew how to beat the best team in the country. You couldn't help but admire Wigans determination,work rate,tracking back and every player working for each other for the full 90 minutes. My point here is the difference between Wigan and ourselves and the reason why one team will be in the championship next season and the other in league one. We need a manager who can transform our current squad into a proper team of grafters and not a team of individuals. Far too often this season our game plan has been non existent. Players don't work for each other and certainly don't track back to help out a shaky defence. I counted three different formations that Wigan adopted throughout last night's game and their players looked comfortable playing each one. Where as when we have tried the same,our players look totally bambussled and completely not at ease. Players need to be coached to be able to do this and that doesn't happen overnight. First you need a manager who understands the game. Who has the experience and who the players respect and want to play for. Well done Wigan, you were a credit to league one. Posh take note! This is what is needed to become a good side.

Yes, but doing it when most important.............very important.

I didn't see it. But it seems to me that Wigan played a great game and deserved to win. A bit (even if only a little bit) like when Posh beat Aston Villa.
But presumably not like when they lost away to Southend or at home to Blackpool. (I didn't see those games either).
