 What exactly does Sandy Clark do?
Topic Originator: OzPar  
Date:   Sun 28 Oct 12:19

Just asking, because I have always regarded an assistant manager's role as largely to provide balance for the manager; to help and advise the manager when things get difficult; to counter the manager's weaknesses; to be a foil for the manager in dealings with the players, whether with a carrot or a stick; to help players interpret the manager's tactical choices, to be animated when the manager is passive and vica versa, etc., etc.

On the evidence to date, he appears to be largely ineffective.

I suppose scapegoating the assistant manager takes some of the criticism away from the manager.

FWIW, I saw them in discussion quite a few times yesterday. I've never been to a training session so I don't know what input he has there.

Has anyone noticed SC standing looking up at the spectators in the stand at the end of the last 2 home games?

Sandy wasn't happy after the initial game at Tannadice. He didnt like the abuse directed at Nicky, he said "it's football, players move " , so he's probably pi55ed at the fans again.

He is getting bigger every time I see him! Either that or he’s got a side business stealing balls!

Just sitting here drenched in my own negativity!

He doesn't look too happy.
I think he is beginning to feel the pressure emanating from the stands.

I know that he is part time. Where does he work the rest of the week?

Do we have a defensive coach now that Potts has gone?

All three of the current management team were forwards but clearly their past experience isn’t working in that area either.

He is full time. Only a Wednesday which is the players and coaching staff day off that he’s not here. He lectures at a college in the west.

He is only part time. Doesn’t come in Monday or Wednesday I’m led to believe and Robinson is only part time as well. 2 days a week I’m told. Don’t know if that’s lies but I hope not. Shame what club were turning out to be

I’m pretty sure Robinson gets two days off. I’d give Cammy Gill a run of games.
Robinson would make me nervous if I was playing in front of him

Robinson makes some sense as he lives down south and I believe that Westwood only works part time. But I would prefer Robinson being full time that way he can take part in training matches, shooting in, free kick and corner practice. That is if we do these in training!

Only a Wednesday. In Allan’s 1st season in league 1 he was off a Monday. Hasn’t been for 2 seasons now.

It’s like Sandy is squaring up looking for a fight with someone the way he just stares at the crowd in the main stand at the end of the games where Johnson gets a bit grief. The warm ups are exactly the same every week. You would think they would try n change things a bit. Keep it interesting and work on some different things. For me I don’t think the management team wanna be there. Holding out for there compensation payment.

Surely you've finished your pie by the end of the game lol.

Maybe you're too excited to chew during the games!

Does he not pick the Dundee United team, in addition to his assistant manager's duties at EEP? ;-)



Not your average Sunday League player.
