Its really interesting how divided we are on verbeeks comments.

Professionally I have worked under managers on both ends of the spectrum and I prefer the brutally up front and honest variant, while conversely I have seen perfectly capable employees capitulate under such a manager.

Given the manager appears to be part of the owners long term plans rather than any one particular player, I would think its a case of embrace it or leave which would in turn allow the club to find a player with a mentality suited to the manager.

Im not sure Verbeek really went after Kitto intentionally though, he was asked a question and answered honestly. For all we know he have applogised to Kitto.

Our Great Leader's style is known to be "authoritarian and headstrong" .

I have worked a lot of Danes and with the Dutch on occasions; both being straight talkers. I dont' mind their approach though it can be difficult if you are rather thin skinned.

Sorry but it is a completely different situation, go into Kitto privately all you want but going at him in a presser is very risky for me. Then the crowd are going to get on his back and it just makes a wedge between the coach and the players.

I can see your thought bubble, but I agree with you about that crap is for the kids and anyone who goes along for any other reason than to be a good dad, is a spectator that loves American over the topism, a person who's reason for loving sport is skew-wiff.
A spectator who doesn't watch football to entertain kids but to be engrossed in the whole game is who we want and if anyone misses the game they're not a loss at all, rather someone who needs to answer some inner questions of themselves.

Woooweeeee! Verbeeks presser was a bit of a corker. The journalistas of adelaide will have a field day with it.

I would suggest anyone interested in any particular reported comments watch the presser in full before judging.

Personally I find Verbeek incredibly refreshing and I wish there were more people in the modern landscape willing to be abruptly honest.

It will certainly divide fans, however any of his close to the bone comments appeared well thought out and honest in my opinion.

He really didn't let the journos steer the conversation to spin their stories. I like it, the more transparency around the club, the better IMO.

That was great and I personally found nothing the matter with it.
I don't know what spin is being put on it down there but he told them what we already know, surely.








I have the feeling that the journalists often ask a question but at the same time answer it themselves.

Loved Aussie Gerts response and how intense he is in those media interviews. His explanation of Kitto was very good. Will be interesting to see if he gives him a run again at LB and if Kitto responds. Journos really digging to find cracks but he wouldn't have a bar of it. I note he avoids Troisi move rumor.

There's also some twitter player agent account throwing fuel on the original rivalry flames by suggesting Troisi to Victory. Its catching a few fish.

I'm expecting a response from the boys tonight. Fire up Farken!
