    Christ, why does it bloody matter. Fully grown adults shouldn't need a manager to wave at them. Or players.

    Sir Cocu's calm and precise analysis of the Stoke match surely shows a master at work.
    He's unhappy at four points lost, despite a far from ideal and rather short pre-season. This shows the high winning standard he has set for the squad. No talk of the last 12 games being the key to promotion - every game is the key to promotion from August onwards.
    He explains how he saw the first half today and why he made what some saw as baffling changes. He then describes succintly the resulting improvement whilst calmly listing the failings which need to be eliminated.
    He doesn't talk about Plans A or B, he analyses what's happening in the match and changes formations, tactics and players as soon as the need is evident.
    Our captain who's had more than his fair share of club and international managers, says training is an eye-opener. Gradually, we can see why.
    Sir Cocu is taking our club to a higher level than I can recall in many decades. No banal generalities, no superficial banter with the interviewer. The players ere expected to work hard mentally as well as physically.
    It seems to me that Frank relied on a team formula of hard work, energy, and pressing whilst he motivated the players with his personality, humour and winning determination. Frustratingy it didn't always work, especially away to inferior teams. In contrast, our new management is more cerebral and concentrates on developing each player's technical and positioning and adaptability skills, as well as the team performance. So those players of any age who want to improve themselves and be stretched will relish the fabulous opportunity. Those that don't or can't will fall by the wayside, if the steely glint in the manager's eye is anything to go by.
    Of course there will be setbacks and disappointments. But there's some real building work going on here and it's a privilege to see it unfold.
    Thanks DCFC for the astute and synergistic investment in facilities and management.
