Our defensive improvement is down to Jesse marsch is down to his new style of play but our poor attacking performance is down to bielsa man mark style of play according to Jesse himself. Hmm 🤔.

Agree1 Disagree0

George seems to rate and have faith in JM.

But beyond JM seeming to be a (short term ) man motivator confidence builder is he actually a good tactical coach who can get good results season after season?

Cant wait for this season to end whatever the final outcome!

Baz Yes I do. He's reminiscent of Keegan motivational wise and tactically has traits of his predecessor just more defensively restrained. If EPL status is preserved, I can see him doing wonders with a wisely invested net summer spend of approximately £150m. Full backs, central midfield and strikers all require upgrades along with the arrival of a new commanding central defender.

The stats I posted yesterday suggest our defensive performance is actually worse than under Bielsa. I'm not seeing any real improvement yet and think this is a case of the emperors new clothes so far. Maybe in time things will change but so far what my eyes see, and what the stats tell us is that we are currently worse off.

The jury still out for me.
He def seems to like the club and players and also seems a good motivator.
But I haven’t seen too much difference on the pitch. Tighter in defence maybe but nothing else.
They looked confused at palace.

The problem the squad have right now is adaptation.
Let’s not forget that the majority of them have been religiously drilled day in day out for 3 years in Bielsaball. It’s got to be hard for them to break those habits at the drop of a hat, as JM has said. This was always going to be the biggest challenge JM faced in such a short space of time. I agree Baz, whatever happens, I just want this season done with now; it’s been a nightmare. Wherever we start next season, it’s with a clean slate, and the promise of a new, exciting beginning! MOT.

Surely his first job was to tighten our defence and he's done this. Also is missing the teams main striker. So on the whole we can't fault his points per game ratio at this moment.

We have to give JM some time to implement his style on the players and the new ones coming in the summer. I think it would be very harsh to judge the man already. The main thing is we are not losing too many games with him and if he can keep us up then I think it would be a very good start.
For me the stats don’t come into it yet, he will be judged on his performances at a later date.
We’ve been used to Bielsa’s heavy metal attack style football so we can get used to not seeing this style of attack from JM.
We are not going to get the same football, for good or bad and this is something we have to adapt to also.

Funny but I actually thought the Leicester match was the most impressive?

27 Apr 2022 16:22:50
Does anyone know if it is true that the players were allowed to jet off on holiday to Europe with their wags during part of this 16 day gap between games?

If true not impressed because

1) should they only be training keeping as ( match) fit
2) should they not be spending this time wisely trying to learn the new tactics systems whatever they may be.

Nice post Wex.

28 Apr 2022 09:04:49
But has he Wex, or has Cooper’s return done that for him? Check out the stats that Alf shared the other day. Yes we’ve had 2 clean sheets on the bounce, but luck played a big part, as did Meslier.
