Sons' sorrow


Recommended Posts

Gerry also threatened a well kent Sons fan with a battering up at Elgin after said fan told him to chuck it. He won over 40% of his games in charge which compares quite well with folk regarded as a good manager, but his loss percentage was almost the same. 
In the last thirty years, only Carson (47.1%) and Fairley(44.1%) have a better win record than McCabe(42.1%).

On the other side of the coin, his loss record (40.4%) has only been bettered by MacLeod (39.3%), Carson (32.4%) and Fairley (39.7%).

Which shows how misleading stats can be at times. And that maybe we should be locating Tam Carson to bring him back.

.McQuilken was absolutely hopeless. I still haven't forgiven him for missing that chance in the opening minute at Celtic Park.

We'd only just lost Dobbie (loan ended and he went to QotS I think) a couple of weeks before and I remember thinking that's the sort of chance he would have buried with his eyes closed. 

Best natural finisher I've seen in a Sons shirt.

I thought this what the video analyst role we had was meant to cover but I might have misunderstood that? 

I like that we are trying to use this kind of stuff and exploring opportunities to improve. I don't particularly like that we're looking for someone to do that on a voluntary basis because it seems like it would surely take up a lot of time? But that might just be me

6/7 years ago I would have been all over this.

Seems like the same role. Maybe the guy that was doing it has chucked it for whatever reason.

'Individual player reports' and 'travel with team to games'.  That could be interesting 😉

Absolutely. Even Gemmell might have put it away, but I think he was injured and only made the bench.

I remember that. That game was absolutely horrendous.

My pal got punched by some wee neddy teuchter on the way back to the station. He wasn’t even a Sons fan.

He was a Falkirk fan, though, so maybe fair enough…

That seems like a job for someone who is suitably trained in that field. To be able to compile individual player reports you surely have to have a proper understanding of the game and the players specific tactical instructions both on and off the ball. You’d also be need to be trained in using the camera equipment and video software. They aren’t generally two skills that go hand in hand either.

Good luck finding a volunteer who can do all of the above to a reasonable enough standard and has the time to do it all without being paid a bean.

Yeah having a few friends who work as freelancers it's giving me the vibes of getting paid in "experience" or "exposure"

Perhaps in just being too critical about it because I would've probably liked to have done something like that back in the day if I'd had time to commit. Live out the football manager dreams and all that. 

It's almost certainly a great opportunity for someone, I think my issue is just with the lack of payment for what I would guess is a lot of work.

Yeah, that should definitely be a paid position.

There is no way that someone is going to be able to do even half of what’s requested there for free. It sounds almost like a full time job to be honest.

The lack of payment is obviously pish but it’s also about some random fan providing this sort of analysis that just seems a bit weird to me. Nae doubt we all think we are experts but in reality none of us are in a position to be providing stuff like individual player reports and providing tactical analysis to the manager of a semi professional football team.

Can just imagine the conversation:

Amateur Analyst: So Carsy got your report from last match here. You need to track back more and you lost your man for the first goal.

Carsy: F*ck off……

Nail on the head. It’s really weird.

Even taking the fact we already have a performance analyst, asking Joe Bloggs to take on an analytical role like this is super weird.

It would pass as an April Fool’s!

Tbf, though, some random off the street, would probably know more than Farrell!
