Unlucky 13

Chris O’Loughlin became the 13th coach to leave the club today in less than 3 years. The continual turnover of staff at The Valley is quite incredulous.

Nothing on the OS but according to the News Shopper O’Loughlin, who previously put the cones out for Orlando Pirates, Supersport United, Melbourne Victory, AS Vita and Sint-Truiden, was surprised that he wasn’t kept on under Karl Robinson.

Time to stop the talking

The best motivational speakers and trainers are also very good listeners. I wonder if Karl Robinson listened today when he met the players individually?

Robinson hasn’t stopped talking since he walked in the door. He loves a media appearance, he loves a press conference and he is particularly fond of a pre-match tactics discussion. Sadly we are still waiting to witness one come good.

His Scouse cheeky-chappy tone has changed though. From the best job in the world, we will play open attacking football scoring goals at will, and what a great set of lads I have, some of whom are the best in the league, to not my fault, have you seen the mess I inherited here, I can’t wait to sign a new team in January. And I’ve got more injuries than a Friday night in A&E!

Yes Karl, such a mess that we had lost only once in nine until you pitched up.

And here’s to you Mr Robinson

Nothing to complain about of Karl Robinson’s first interaction with fans, in a much more controlled setting of the west stand with the fawning and fibbing Katrien Meire not to be seen.

Robinson came across honest and genuinely excited about his new job. He said all the right things, but what newly unveiled manager doesn’t, yet real enthusiasm spilled out of him like a kid on Christmas Eve and there was a lot to like.

Obviously he called for unity between fans and club, I can understand that, and there he is no doubt that he had a very good relationship with the supporters of MK Dons, not that us them can be categorized in anyway similarly.

His comments about Chris O’Loughlin were a little odd, and I understand he has made them again since. One word of advice Karl, don’t pull the wool over our eyes. In addition I see that the CAST has offered to meet up with Robinson to offer him support but importantly to give him background and substance to the majority of fan’s grievances towards the club’s owner and CEO.

No manager, but Roly picks his coach

“Charlton Athletic Assistant Manager Kevin Nugent will take on the role of Caretaker Manager until a permanent replacement for Russell Slade is appointed. Nugent will be supported by Simon Clark and Chris O’Loughlin, a new addition to the club’s coaching staff who, contrary to reports, will not become the club’s new Manager.” (more)

Contrary to reports….. You have to laugh. Bit like contrary to reports that Russell Slade is the way forward. I’ll tell you what, let’s wait and see shall we.
