Is it just me or does this show abruptly end?
Great podcasts are like great boxing bouts: it’s all about the right match-up, the fighters whose styles are such as to make, together, for a great boxing bout.
This podcast was not the equivalent of a great boxing bout.
Despite genuine attempts to be polite and accomodating to each other, it sounded like Si and Paul were really not able to work out an accommodation.
In general, people participating in these podcasts have to remember that long ‘speeches’ just do not work for the listener in a podcast (making the same point in four or five different ways, over and over again, just doesn’t work).
In addition, we can HEAR the host’s ‘sighing’ or exhaling forcefully in apparent ‘frustration’ (Rob seemed to be frustrated, and having a hard time following Paul and Si’s train of thought or understanding their respective main points).
It’s unfortunate, but for me, while the show ended abruptly, it also did so _mercifully_. All in all, that was not the most pleasant or edifying experience listening to that podcast, I am afraid.
Get a grip lad.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha have a look at yourself lad
Great Pod, really enjoyed listening to Paul and his views on sports science and coaching. I agreed with Mel it was England who ignored LFC’s training regime for Sturridge when Hodgson famously said he wanted to test the players metal and it was better for him to be injured now instead of when the World Cup would be on. Bloody idiot.
Thought Paul’s comments re structure of the club and the power given to managers was spot on, considering the average lifespan of a manager in Prem is 2 years. One example I can think of where that seems to in play is Swansea and now Southampton where the style of club is in the clubs DNA and the players / coaches adjust to that DNA. Opposed to a continuous cycle of overhaul. I think if it goes well for Giggs in his first year that could be the next place we see it.
Agreed with Steven that the style for 13/14 is the one you’d like to see as an LFC DNA (but a bit tighter at the back ;-)
Really enjoy these shows think the regular guys such as Simon, Mel etc are great at getting to grips with what’s going on at the club but then it’s great to listen to people from the other side of the game and get their views.
Aside from managing the first team because a lot of football jobs are transitionary a lot of what goes on behind the scenes is about job protection. Whereas if the manager only had to manage the first team squad etc a lot of that insecurity could be dealt with by building decent foundations in the medical, stats, sports science, coaching departments of the club.
yep the pod does cut short ion the download
Lost 5 minutes now added to the end of the podcast.
This was the best Unwrapped yet.
