Change of subject away from transfer news.

I read some quotes from Ole who said something along the lines of when he arrives for the day at 7am he expected to be the first person there before training etc. but has come in to McKenna and Carrick already there setting up drills/ sessions for each day and working to ensure everything runs to plan in line with the vision of the coaching staff.

I think this speaks volumes for the type of people we have as part of the setup at the moment. McKenna has had an unbelievable rise in the last few years and credit has to be given as he has worked hard and been rewarded (rightly so) - I really want to remain optimistic about the upcoming season and hope that the players take note of how to act as a professional (using Carrick and McKenna as examples)

Carrick was extremely hard working as a player and was the ultimate professional and McKenna seems to be cut from the same cloth although from 2 different sporting backgrounds they have ended up in a very good position.

My main point from this is that we have a coaching team who are determined to get their methods/ style across to the players. What are your thoughts on the current coaching setup and will hard work and determination be enough to get us back firing again?

Hard work and determination will be a good start.
The jury is out on mckenna and carrick but they worked uh ever 2 bosses last session and as a result struggled. They had a very poor unbalanced squad last season so not fair to judge them.
We have good 'club men' at the helm now. Lots to be positive about. Clear out some of the riff raff and we will be a lot better off.
Really looking forward to the season john.

Nice to hear about the dedication of the coaching staff's. Looks like they are really determined to succeed.
I read an article in MEN which stated we are doing relentless passing drills at every opportunity this pre-season.
Hope everything comes to fruition in the important games.

i rememeber jose applauding the "M-A-N" in Carrick as a key reason in him joining the coaching staff. Call me old school but i think that is key - the work ethic and professionalism coupled with respect among peers having played at a high level for so long. And jose is a pretty decent judge of strength of charachter.

That's good to hear. If the players can't take inspiration from the coaching team's dedication then they don't have the right attitude to play for our club.

I'm sure the majority do, and we will see an improvement this coming season.

I have a lot of time for Carrick, seems to have a serious degree of calmness about him. To succeed as a manager he will need more but if Jose saw something then it says a lot.
