 Sports Psychologist

I see that Man U have appointed Sascha Lense "to help the players brains work with the body rather than against it" according to the manager. I believe most top clubs employ a sports psychologist and obviously feel it`s money well spent.

We probably can`t afford one, but I can`t help thinking that, given our league position, a good sports psychologist might be a better addition than another average player.

Thoughts?

How about a Supporters’ Psychologist, GG, to help them cope with the trauma of watching the Pars week in, week out?

😂🤣😂

The very best managers used to fulfilled both roles. The Pars have been fortunate enough to have had two outstanding examples - Jock Stein and Jim Leishman. There may have been others, but those two were in a league of their own. Hopefully, Yogi will join that elite club.

Completely agree with Sports Psychologists in sports but it is better in line with what the manager is requesting I.e. the manager is the best at doing this role but needs to see the benefits of these changes to “learned” behaviour. I suppose people refer these as player systems currently.
My learned behaviour was that as a player I could play very well at right back and play as a wing back. This transferred for me easily to left back, but was a disaster in the centre of defence. Why?because I didn’t feel comfortable. My learned behaviour limited me not to have vision on the left and right side of play at the same time. I think much better players can make this transition but as they play at a much higher standard then the people they play against will be a higher standard so will be anticipated.
Transfer of the learned behaviour in training to the actual field of play is where managers earn their corn.

There could possibly be a student nearing the end of or just finished their course who are looking to get a bit of work experience . If they could help the pars nudge these draws to wins it would look great on their CV and possibly lead to a permanent position.
