Matilda's Trainer sacked ...

Postby sevengoals Sun Jan 20, 2019 5:27 am

This is out of the blue for me.
Matildas coach Alen Stajcic has been sacked only months before the FIFA Women's World Cup following a damning review of the national team's workplace culture

When the players' union suggested Football Federation Australia conduct a review into the welfare of Matildas players, they hoped to simply improve workplace standards around games, training loads and recovery periods. Two months later, that review spiralled into the shock sacking of coach Alen Stajcic.

As the fallout from Football Federation Australia’s termination of Alen Stajcic’s contract is absorbed, there are more questions than answers.

It sure is.

The longer they say nothing and use the " confidentiality" clauses the more the fish will stink and we know the one about the fish stinking from the head first.

Gallop said the decision to terminate the employment of Stajcic, who was dismissed by FFA on Saturday following an internal review into the culture of the national women’s football team, came after the situation “deteriorated” recently.

But he offered no further details due to the confidential nature of the survey, which began after the Tournament of Nations in July.

Reading some fb posts from people it looks like a hatchet job done on him by a new female board member and the D&I manager so they could get a woman in the jobs.

Look up Safro’s Sydney for a start.

Stinks to high heaven.

Interesting article.
It doesn't sound like it was a good place to go to work.

If a player puts on weight over the off season, apparently you shouldn't alert them to the problem. Not sure you can just drop them either. Clearly what should happen is that you keep picking players that aren't at peak fitness. World ranking of 20 here we come?

Being a professional athlete and complaining your being body shamed due to weight gain in the offseason... right.

IMO based on the article this is a classic situation of when the far left see everything through the prism of gender and oppression rather than through the prism of competence and as a result actually undermine the professional women they are supposedly aiming to protect.

Do male professional footballers feelings even matter in a similar situation, doubt it.

I feel for the players, they are professional athletes who just want to win while those sit behind a desk play politics in the name of supposedly protecting the players..... heres a hint , they are professional athletes not delicate ornamental pieces of glass. Guve them the reapect they deserve and treat them correctly.
Ppl who slap the label of truth on the 1st thing they hear, do it out of ignorance, convenience or cant be bothered picking through a thin layer of falsehood to find the real truth, or possibly even another lie

Which do we prefer?
Oi you, you fat prick / bitch / bastard, loose some bloody weight, you look like a slag heap ... For fucks sake where the fuck do you think you are..?
Or.
Fellow professional / mate, we need to check your BMI because we feel you need to do some extra work. It seems that you were not responsible enough.
You do realise this may also impact on your selection ...
How would we like coaches to address our daughters and sons?

I know what I went though, it did not kill me but it left "scars" and I would not like the same to happen to our children.
It is all about respecting each other.

An emotional Alen Stajcic has broken his silence in a bid to clear his name and restore his reputation following weeks of what he termed “innuendo and speculation” over the reasons behind his sacking as Matildas coach.

Stajcic released a statement overnight before facing the media on Monday morning to give his side of the story after he claimed in an open letter to the Australian football community that the saga has left his reputation ruined.
https://www.theguardian.com/+ootball/20 ... as-sacking

This is really farked up.
We have had a reply of sorts,
FFA board chairman Chris Nikou said the board disagreed with a number of Stajcic’s comments — and said the former coach had previously described the Matildas team environment as “dysfunctional.”

Ante Milicic, the former Socceroos assistant coach, has been named as the man to guide the Matildas out of the ongoing political fallout from the sacking of Alen Stajcic and into the World Cup in France later this year.

Football Federation Australia on Monday confirmed Milicic, who has no previous experience in women’s football but a wealth in the men’s game, as the team’s new head coach after Stajcic left the post last month in controversial circumstances.

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... head-coach


No disrespect to Milicic but has the FFA got any bloody idea what they are doing?
Considering it's WC year and all that.
Splash the cash and get someone who has been there and done that in the woman's game.

A real chance goes begging again with arguably our most talented and experienced woman's national squad.

For example, lure Silvia Neid out of retirement, she is only 54.
Throw some money at her, promise her a big Aussie adventure.
Neid has won every damn thing at club and national level as player and as manager.
A six month / one year contract would do it.

( FFS, we all remember what happened when the men got Guus Hiddink for a WC.)


This shows to me how chicken shit the FFA really is.
New heads, same crap.

This change of management at FFA is working out well so far. :(
