How to Sack a Coach?

postholedigger- you mkae some good points there… however, this coach literally has no idea. I met one of the other players for coffee this afternoon, and we are talking about having a secret meeting with the team before the game where we will set a 4-4-2 formation(instead of 3-5-2) and discuss our new tactics.

Me and my buddy both agreed the coach is so dumb that he will have no idea that we have changed the formation and team tactics. Making these changes will play to the teams strengths and I beleive make a huge in difference when it comes to the end result of the match.

Edevus- Im sorry to hear about you early retirement buddy. The club has awesome facilities including a pitch with a stadium, great club rooms, lights for night games etc. But as I said the club is lacking “football people”. What other club would let a coach only attend 50% of the games and 50% of training? Apparently this coach will only play the 3-5-2 formation, even though his group of players and their strengths and weaknesess have changed drastically over the past 2 years.

I keep getting this awful image of the bird trying to teabag his coach in his sleep.

LOL!

Well, like I said, that was just my take on the situation.

Good luck with the uprising. I wish you well and hope doesn’t end up like a Syrian or Chinese uprising.

Just do this part for a while. Considering it sounds like this is not something you do on the regular, are you really cut out to coach this team?

Don’t listen to anyone Bird. Just march in there and demand a change damn it! If they don’t listen walk over to the club’s giant silo holding millions of soccer balls and release the hatch. You will flood the city with soccer balls causing public hysteria and an immediate order for marshal law in your city. Then people will listen Bird. Oh yes, they will listen.

Im not a natural leader. Im a soldier. I go in there, I get the job done, and I leave. But now I have to find my leadership skills and became a leader of this army.

Dude, I heard you mention Geraldton in a post a little while ago. If that is where you are, do you consider that ‘the outback’?

If so, LOL.

Yes and yes.

Damn man. Isn’t there like 25,000+ people or more in Gero?

I’d understand if you were in Marble Bar or somewhere like that.

Hi friends,

So as you all know I have moved to the outback and have joined the local soccer team. The club has great facilities, a few decent players and it has the ambitions of moving up in the divisions. One problem; the coach is shit.

The coach seems to be only coaching as he has family history in the club. He only attends one training session out of 2 every weeks, and he doesnt attend the away games(every second week). He has poor understanding of the game, but is arrogant and thinks he does.

He is very nice to me and everyone is nice to each other at the club. There seems to be no real committee at the club, and lacks leadership and “footballing know-how”.

Im getting frustrated and I am not sure what to do. Do I try and ask if I can coach a couple of sessions? Do I voice my concerns to the coach, or the captain? Should I just retire?

Help birdy out here.

Play real football.

Thanks friends,

Some really good advice in here. And yes, a few of the guys in the team have the same concerns as me. Infact the last training session was so shit, that one of the players started to do hill sprints by himself after training just to blow off some steam.

Ok, so this is what I am going to do;

  1. Put in some really good performances on game day. Giving it all I got. Also trying to be a leader on the field with lots of encouragement to the younger guys. I need to build up my reputation. 2-3 best on round performances is what is needed.

  2. Get friendly with the coaches assistant. This guy takes training on Tuesdays and is a pretty good dude. He likes to ride bikes aswell, so I am going to go on a bike ride with him, buy him a coffee or 2 and slowly convince him that we need to sack the head coach, and maybe even convinving him to let me a have go at taking a session or 2.

  3. I have to stay positive. I have to keep training. My take-over attempt is not going to happen over night, but it will happen.

I’d suggest reading Il Prince

Are you semi pro / paid? or do you do this as a hobby? if it’s as a hobby chill out already, if its semi pro still, chill out but work hard and put some roots down, then go and say something to the boss/owners once you have estalished yourself as somebody of worth to the team, but untill then stop with all the slivering about.

You haven’t even been there a season, and to be honest, if I was on the team you’d be winding me up.

SHIS GETTEN REAL YO, DROPPIN CALL-OUTS ON UNCLE BIRD!!!

If I where in your situation bird-dude, I would just shut up and play. That way you stay out of trouble atleast.

Thanks for your advice friends.

I will do what the majority of you have reccommended; which is to shut-up and play. If Im going to takeover, it will have to be next season if I am still around.
