I think Jos is doing a good job

Recommended Posts

Average position 12th average manager more players fit so bit better than under him last year. Now he seems to have learned waiting till halftime to attack is stupid we are much better. This squad now with more players back and the young players are better than mud table. Would be playoffs with a manager with tactical awareness. With Jos we will be mid table. No dramas wasted year. 

Would love to be proven wrong. 

We could be so much better.

So far the top teams we have faced are not firing on all cylinders yet. Good we played them now but made us look better

The guys worked under a cloud his entire time here,horrendous injury list last season,an embargo this term,hes had to use the emerging talent,and unearthed a couple of decent little prospects in Thorniley and Penney,hopefully a couple more can grasp their chance.

Hes doing ok,looking at the bigger picture Im sure hes planning for the future

Need to tighten up the defence. if he can some how do that then we are in with a real shot of the top 6.

I think Jos and Hector have that under control.

Think his approach to the manager's role is a breath of fresh air. Really like what he brought to the club, and hope he can build up on it.

 

Got totally different role to Carlos, as I believe he is brought in to build young and talented squad on sensible budget, rather then to get us promoted as quickly as possible.

Given time, he may well end up doing something pretty good here. 

 

I feel like he and the club are laying down some reasonable foundations for the future. 

 

Such is the shelf life of a Championship manager, it's very hard to know whether Jos will be the man to oversee when it all (hopefully) comes together. 

 

Needless to say, I think there's a decent chance that fans will look back at Jos' time at the club and think he did a good job.

He's done an absolutely Incredible job

- No real money to spend

- Only one real transfer on a limited budget and recognised we needed Centre mid strengthening, and for the money spent JP has been a great signing

- Has trusted, and developed, the u23s to turn around the fortunes of the club under a transfer embargo

- Hector on loan looks like another brilliant acquisition based on the current squad.

- Kept us up with promotion winning form at the end of last season

 

Things really could have been dramatically worse than they are today if DC had appointed the wrong Manager last season.

 

As for the calls for certain high earning senior players to be returned to the team. For what reason? The first half of last season was an absolute disgrace. Things had to change regardless of the money spent or what the players had achieved in the past, we were heading for relegation under them for sure.

 

The one criticism I would have is I really don't like to see Wednesday sit off teams, especially at Hillsborough, but I'm willing to accept Jos may know more about football than I believe I know myself.

 

Good luck tomorrow Jos, I believe we've got everything to play for this season.

Agree with all of the OP. Done a fantastic job given the situation he inherited. 

 

Not forgetting his first game in charge being a baptism of fire at bumhole lane. A game in which the embarrassment of the game at hillsborough could easily have been even worse.

 

He will make mistakes as will the players however stick with them and we could go far.

Thankfulness tends to create optimism and encouragement.  Dissatisfaction tends to create pessimism and criticism.  As in life so on Owlstalk.....

Genuine question for everyone, If Jos would have been appointed in summer 2015 instead of Carlos do you reckon we would have been promoted by now? i'm saying yes i believe we would have.

ABSOLUTELY. Unlike clueless, this bloke genuinely seems to know what he's doing....and can pick a player even though he's got nowt to spend.

I beleive we would but even if we didn’t get up, I think he would have been shrewder in the transfer market and we wouldn’t have been staring down both barrels of FFP.

I think a lot of credit has to go to Jos for and his team for what's being achieved. He's getting more out of some players than Carlos did and is also introducing some of the youngsters successfully. Even when Jos finally goes I'm sure the next manager will rake the reigns of a club in much better shape than when he first arrived. That's the mark of a well managed club.

Carlos was a decent manager who left a mess jos is a decent manager who when he goes will leave his successor with a good situation. I hope he’s given time to build, he could be a big jack or a Wilkinson

In fairness to the high-earners, they were suffering from a play-off hangover.

 

Two in fact.

 

Judging by their performances, even against Rangers, it appeared that many had lost faith in Carlos.

 

Hooper is a high earner, and we badly miss him IMO.
