Really enjoyed comms today on USA 3-0 Chile with . A Hartlepool/Guisborough partnership on BBC World Service! Carli Lloyd had a great game but still think Morgan is the way forward. Not sure playing them together works in their 4-3-3, has to be one or the other.

Key words here, ‘new identity’. Getting Keane alongside Woodgate is a coup, players will respect them. Leo is a no brainer for PR and Danny Coyne is a great character to have around. Notable absentee is Steve Round, I understand he wanted a bigger role than the one he was offered

I’m very attached to that ball, it hit me on the head as I wandered past a court at Wimbledon in 2013. Think it was vs Kimiko Date-Krumm. Sam is very grateful anyway...

The key is to teach them to drop anything when you’re in the house and there are no distractions. Give them a ball and wait for them to drop it, say ‘drop it’ as soon as it happens and then praise them. That’s how we taught Sam the command 👍 We also used a clicker

This tweet may not age well BUT No announcement likely today at Middlesbrough because they’re waiting on answers from Robbie Keane + Steve Round as to whether they want to be on Woodgate’s staff. Both currently mulling it over, club keen to confirm JW and his staff at same time.

And he will need fans behind him immediately. There’s nothing to be gained by being negative just so you can say ‘I told you so’ if it doesn’t work out. He’ll have a good team behind him, also my understanding is that Leo Percovich may well get a bigger job than ‘just’ GK coach.

Many have tried, few have succeeded. This is probably because things eventually go wrong at most clubs outside the PL and it’s very hard not to throw the baby out with the bath water. It’s easier to think a clean slate is better, but then you’re stuck in constant grass is greener

Another example is Leeds who adopted it last year. That’s why some of their younger players have been able to successfully and quickly step up to the first team. The central point is that there are some structures and/or people that stay when a new manager comes and goes 2/2

But Boro HAVE had a cataclysmic shift in styles from manager to manager, Monk to Pulis, prime example. RE Cruyff, he came up with the concept of all youth teams play the same way as the first team, I didn’t say Boro are Barcelona, just that they’re adopting that structure. 1/2

Now, this is an identity crisis me and thousands of others have lived with for decades. Nobody knows. Short answer is probably ‘both’
