      :D

      Sorry Bill, come across rude that.

      It's just that the fact he was plying his trade at Tranmere has absolutely nothing to do with anything. There will have been 100s, probably 1000s of coaches that have played or coached at low league level and gone on to become excellent at their job.

      Ok bud fairy muff, I concede sometimes we humans have brain fart moments, and talk complete and utter bollocks just like you pointed out, I'm going back to smoking th the dogshit mate I seem to make more sense   :-[

      Happy Xmas

      john achterberg is still stinking the place out.

      the guy is like goalkeepers kryptonite, anyone who get near him loses form, confidence, we have no goalies with any aggression or assertiveness left, their life force has been sucked dry.

      now Alisson Becker is here i cant see us having this gimp of a bloke telling becker what to do.
      bullet him now.

      don't we lack aggression and fire in the squad as a whole? we had many players like that but as they retired and the squad changed so did it's mentality. don't think we can blame 1 goalkeeper coach for that

      I got a sneaking feeling that perhaps Jürgen and has a staff know a tad more than we do.

      Considering how long it has taken them to find a good GK I actually question that. Also what has Achterburg actually achieved, every single goalkeeper he has worked with has got worse, starting with Pepe.

      This is the crux of the issue for me,surely one of the jobs of  achttheblert is to improve our keepers 
      And since 2011 when he was promoted I have seen nothing of the sort from him.
      Obviously it may not  be all down to him but I certainly don't think he has helped the situation regarding the improvemeant of our keepers.

      Well with a Top class keeper finally on the books we will find out the worth of Achterburg.

      Has he not had the tools to work with or as others have suggested he is useless at his job.

      I have a feeling that Alisson will have one session with him and demand his own coach be brought in.

      Wouldn't let Achterberg within twenty miles of Alisson.

      How long has Migs been at the club ? 5 years ?

      Any better ?

      Do these coaches have end of year reviews? Hard to judge him from the outside I suppose!

      Maybe the best GK coach in the world could not improve what we have had at our disposal these last few years.

      Well in that case the coach should have been making it very very clear that we needed an upgrade, or perhaps he was ;-)

      He has been highly rated by the last 5 managers including the current. Maybe his skills are very highly sought after or its hard to find available goalkeeper coaches.

      Oh you mean the skill of never improving a goalkeeper, yeah I can imagine that is very hard to find ;-).
      Maybe he is just an expert at kissing ass, I've met plenty of people like that who are crap at their jobs but amazing at sucking up to their bosses but I would have thought Jürgen can see through that.

      i have to think this is the case. top rated arse licker, one of the boys, dutch accent so sounds like he knows what hes on about,  etc.
      snake oil salesman more like.
      he should be judged on his results, has he improved any goalkeepers 'consistently... no. cya lad.
