Bielsa dreaming …

Filed under: Uncategorized — notyalcsdrawkcab @ 9:39 pm

When the Oz job came up, I was one of those curious about Bielsa as Oz coach. 

I kinda wish it had happened.  The team as it currently stands would not be able to play his style.  The energy, the work rate, the use of the press.  It would have been a different team. 

How hard is the current team able to work?  How good is the movement off the ball?  How high can it press, and for how long? Watch a Roar game after a Socceroos game and I know which team looks better at those tasks.

It is great that we are still in qualification (unlike the Saudis), but Neil’s automatic selection is starting to feel like a millstone around the teams neck.  He isn’t going to get any faster between now and Brazil.
