All things Girvan 19/20

Except for the Royal Scottish Academy...they weren't so convinced of his talents...

Okay, he’s no Picasso.

He didn’t get the preseason to get his own players in and he did improve them when he did come in just nowhere near enough.
This season will be different.

I agree. I thoroughly believe they will bounce back this season. Spank is a firm believer in growth mindset and his players need to start buying into it too.

Do you remember the thing Rodgers done with the Liverpool squad where he had 3 players names inside envelopes? He said said those were the 3 players he believed would let Liverpool down that season! Well, Spank done something similar last season but his envelopes didn't contain the names of players who would let him down, his envelopes contained drawings of 3 players he believed would play for Scotland at 1 point!! Now, if that doesn't boost a players confidence I don't know what will.

Obviously none of those players have got anywhere near the Scotland senior squad yet but i bet they believe in themselves a hell of a lot more than they did before Spank took over. He is a positive guy but it will only get Girvan so far, he needs the squad to buy in to his methods.

Hi, I hope you are well?

Spoke to him last night and he's raging about taking stick on here again. He's got a few drawings from last season that he is happy for me to post. 

He took a bit of abuse for his art last season but he's at the stage where he doesn't really care about opinions anymore. He operates in facts. Cold, hard facts.

Are we to assume that he revealed the contents of the envelope to the players? Based on the previous efforts, I envisage everyone sitting as a group waiting for the reveal, only to say "but Rod Stewart, Michael Barrymore and Val Kilmer aren't even Scottish"

Apparently one of the group,while happy at the Scotland prediction,was less than pleased that the artist had used the wrong colour on his bunnet.:(

Haha. He did actually show the team them and they were, as usual, pretty accurate sketches. Some folk loved it, some folk thought it was strange and 3 players are now believing they will run out for Scotland at Hampden. Spank calls it his 'Flashbang'. He has always said "Throw a grenade in a dressing room and some players will die, but throw a flashbang in there and players dreams can come true".  Don't know if I agree with it entirely but I kind of see what he's trying to say.

I will need to double check he is fine with me posting. He was a wee bit annoyed about the Jock Redmond one of his I posted a while back

Nice quote. Kind of like a mash up of KIpling and S Club 7

Indeed. And not hard to see how the guy landed the gig as the Girvan polis sketch artist. :)

Not quite as good as Spanks flashbang pics but decent. He has given me permission to attach the picture of 1 of the players he said would play for Scotland. Don't ask who it is because I'm not allowed to say. I'm pretty sure the Girvan fans will know who it is though!! #flashbang

So much going on here with Mount Fuji and the rising sun in the background ( I'm guessing that the boy has some Japanese blood in his pedigree ) though worryingly,he seems to be leaning ( it may be just the way his heid is tilted) towards the path to drugs and destruction. Hopefully this isn't the case and he goes on to light up our national stadium.:)

Aye, I think there are a few wee hidden messages in the drawing. I wouldn't expect anything else from him though. You can't actually tell from the picture but the signposts are made of MDF. Supposedly that's another clue as to who it is!

Aye,...he was the midfield dynamo Jimbob...Did you not see the video clips ?

Anyway, for whatever reason, Adrian wasn't offered a new contract and was last years news.

Good of the new boy to turn out so early in the morning to pose for the portrait though...that just shows how dedicated these players are when they have an inspirational manager at the helm.
