    BurtonRam7 reacted to RamNut in Lamps Again Linked With Chelsea Job   
    I like his management style which is positive and supportive. There is no silly jargon. Its not all about him. He doesn't keep quoting himself. He has reduced the age of the team and tried to play attractive football. He celebrates with the fans. He has promoted youth and made some good signings. I like the positive vibe but i'm 'realistic' enough to recognise that we will have dips; that we are not the finished article; and that there are other teams who are better placed than us to go up. Therefore i'm not fed up if we drop a few points and i'm not going to slash my wrists if we miss out on promotion.

    That interview with Owen Bradley is brilliant. Frank takes him out for extra shooting practice a couple of times a week. It’s hard work and dedication that got Frank to such a high-level, and, by emulating that, Max is putting himself in the best possible position to do the same.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if he became our captain at a very young age.

    Oakwood was built on the green belt that was previously my playground. Many residents then kicked off when DCFC wanted to build Moor Farm, and objections were strong. 
    This was my own thoughts, which was published on the letters page of the DET. 
    (My son re-typed it out and printed it off on one of those fancy compooter things, so we framed it, and hung it in the hall. Sad, I know, but it’s the only works I’ve ever had published!  LOL!)
    (EDIT:  Our first grandchild was on the way at the time, hence the reference... She was 18 on Tuesday!  How time flies!!)
     
    hope this works... a bit tech for me....

    If he did get offered the job, I’m sure he’d take it in a flash. To play to such a level as he did takes an unbelievable level of confidence in your own ability. Of course he’d back himself to do a good job there. If he didn’t back his ability, he would never have made it to the top as a player, and he would stand no chance of making it to the top as a manager.

    Pleased for the lad. Not that I thought he’d get his head turned. By all accounts he’s a very grounded, hard-working and professional guy. It’s testament to his hard work that when I played against him years and years ago, he didn’t stand out as anything particularly special. He must have grafted to develop his game.
    My only worry isn’t that he might not have that aggression and bite that the more volatile players have. We have a few mad bar stewards in our youth ranks (Louis Sibley, Tyree Wilson, Luke Thomas, etc) so it will be interesting to see how he compares to those players when it comes to nailing down a first-team spot.

    It was 40 years ago that a beauty was born
    That the world paused to celebrate
     This fair lady was unique and beloved by all
    And even the angels wished to know her fate.
    And then when the beauty was grown and so fair
    Men would try and show off their might
    In the hopes that they could get to hold her tight.
    Yet one man was lucky, so fortunate so blessed,
    That she chose him as better than all the rest
    He still can’t believe that this angel is his girl
    That man is me, you are the angel, my world.
