Re: Here's a novel suggestion

So we get Marshall in, supposedly good at right back as well as further forwards, gets two or three chances and doesn't do so well, so Pinto comes back, but he has looked a bit gung ho in his apperances and was caught out against Leeds so Aarons gets his chance after an excellent cup match. Nothing negative about Farke's actions there. I call that good management. If Aarons goes on to prove himself and make himself first choice RB then job's a good'un.

A Good Manager would of selected the best one in the First place LDC not tried 3 in one position to find the best one !

No.  Marshall was identified as a RB, Pinto an experienced campaigner and Aarons nothing more than a young hopeful - who had to wait his turn. Having waited and then taken his opportunity, the world is now his oyster.  Well done to him and well done to Farke for giving him the opportunity and the right circumstances to be able to make the move to the first team.   Good management, without a doubt. 

Of course the onus is on Marshall and Pinto to raise their game when they get another chance, but because of good management, the competition for right back is well and truly there.

Yes but would it not been better to see who was the best on the training pitch ?
did we not have the same problem last season at left back ?
played 3 players there signing Husband etc only to find out the best left back was already here in lewis
Would a Good Manager not have spotted that Marshall and pinto were not as good as Aarons ?

I wonder who was best on the training pitch? Subsequent match performances may not be linked to performances on the training pitch.

Is there a training pitch option when picking the team on footy manager?Wink [;)]

Re: Here's a novel suggestion

i was Expect Farke to come up with something different over the summer ,
I just thought if he is such a great coach he would pull something unexpected out the hat something to show he is cut above the rest
Sadly and i do mean that i have not seen that just the same old
i would love a Manager / HC at the club 5 / 6 years like a David Moyes at Everton but we need something back something to hold onto

Re: Here's a novel suggestion

Ha ! yes lineker was not the best trainer or Gazza but
i think i would because of his Performances also did he miss all the chances in training i doubt it
I am just saying they see these players every day the Manager / HC must know who is the best right back at the club

Re: Here's a novel suggestion

I doubt he had a clue who would prove best. You could see in the summer that he trusted Max like he did Lewis last summer. But he didn't really know until they played. If you want a clue how much he trusted them Lewis came straight in for the pressure game at Birmingham and Aarons away at ipswich. 

That's a massive incentive to all our academy players but it takes bottle for a manager under pressure to do it.

Re: Here's a novel suggestion

That is one thing he is good at bringing in Youth players i imagine from his Development days at Dortmund
i think we Lewis / Godfrey / Aarons we have some very good players and Thompson if he can stay fit Cantwell when he bulks up a bit
Credit for the people who brought these players to the club and Trained them in their younger days

I think you've got a bit confused. The section on the web site that says 'Reading Material' is actually books.

If you try being positive that sentiment is going to go away as soon as Delia sells the next player so that she can keep the club to herself.

How can you be positive about being a feeder club?

You are being very naive if you think NCFC has anything to do with the football, players or fans. It is simply a financial business model that keeps the Suffolk Socialists in control.

The academy is now key to this model and the next players to be sold are Godfrey, Lewis, Aarons and the boy Idah.

Yes, them too.

At least with Chase we bought some quality replacements, but with Delia it is sell high and bring in cheapest of the cheap, often from the secondary leagues of Europe, where transfer fees and wage demands are dirt cheap.
