Fortunately I think this scenario is very unlikely. I will be very unhappy if Croft moves to DoC. That has to be someone from outside.Dismayed1 wrote: ↑Mon Sep 24, 2018 5:57 pmWell todays lunchtime forum throws up more questions than answers, regarding the future coaching structure in the club.
Although there is going to be a outside revue in October, I have an uneasy feeling in my mind that not a lot is going to change, just a game of musical chairs, involving mainly the same people who have be responsible for such horrendous results this year.
Hugh Morris is going to stay, but in a new capacity, so how about some crystal ball gazing.
1. Hugh Morris to continue as CEO, carrying on the good job on the commercial side, which is his forte.
2. Robert Croft to be Director of Coaching, as a reward for his outstanding failure as Head Coach. A case of promoting people beyond a level of capability.
3. Jim Allenby to be Head Coach (as mooted by Vetchetarian) in another forum on this site. Never coached a PROFESSIONAL club, and left both Glamorgan and Somerset under unstated circumstances.
4. Matthew Maynard as batting coach to continue the brilliant job he has done with the batsmen this season. This year must be the lowest batting bonus points ever, so he deserves another chance. haha!!
If this does become fact then I don't see the point in forking out good money on season tickets, to watch 2 day matches, and some mediocre cricket next year.
The time has come for a complete clear out of the entire coaching staff, and an end to jobs for the boys. the club deserves better coaches that have a record of leaving counties or international set-ups in a better position than when they joined them. Sometimes it is very hard for those who have only ever been at one club all their careers to have a wide and varied approach to the job of coach.
I hope this scenario does not come about, the players and supporters deserve better.
Anyone know anything about this? Nothing as yet on[…]
