Galis - thinking about resigning?

http://www.futbalportal.sk/index.php...clanok&id=2645

Basically, he feels that he has a lot of things to do not related with coaching the NT (politics, etc.), so he is thinking about quitting and giving the place to a younger coach.

A bit strange to do it at the beginning of our qualification campagin, though.

If it did happen, though, what do you think about it and who would be the leading candidate to replace him?

Mr. Galis had a nice little rant today.

Can't say he's wrong, though, in some points.

All this article is messy and full of self-regreting sentiments.

Don´t like attitude of Mr.Galis. When he is fan hero has no trouble receive credit. When NT failes, he refuses take over resonsibility and start ranting about "jealousy" and "disappointment" from some journalist. Adult man should be able to stand criticism.


His SMER party was first putting Peter Stastny (SDKU) under pressure. Even Galis jumped on this anti-Stastny bandwagoon. He critizes others but nobody can´t critize him. I liked him during his times in Slovan but now he turned into joke.

btw even during his times in Slovan he often used words like "Iīm disappointed over low attendance"

He should finally realise that fans arenīt idiots. Galis has obviously no clue why people dislike football at Tehelne Pole: long rows of people waiting on security-check, beers, on everything. Typical was game Petrzalka - Rangers : ten minutes before kick-off were 5 gates packed with people and many of them havenīt seen first minutes of game. Same Slovakia-England, paid 500 Sk, spent 2 hours in jam at gate of Tehelne Pole, havenīt seen anthems/kick-off and was totally disgusted by all of this.

Tehelne Pole is old barn, mostly of seats are uncovered, pitch is terrible. In competition with other sports football looses itīs fans because football stadiums are old, ugly and offering poor services. People arenīt cattle.


Btw have been on game Slovakia - Malta, att.of 2500 and spent about 20 minutes on security-check !!!




If there are things worth to critize, itīs Slovak football association. But Galis will never say something against them, heīs coward who prefers to critize those who canīt fire him.

The problem with our football lies at the very top and bottom.

First we must change the leadership of the FA. Kick Laurinec and his buddies from Sportprogress out of there. They only hurt our football. Corruption.
Galis must out. He has not done much for our football. And it only would be right for a man of so many funcitons to give one up. I have a feeling that he holds our NT back by picking players not by quality but by his personal favourites(Hlinka for example)

The work that must be done on the club level is a whole different story

Donīt understand why SFZ canīt hire guy like Guus Hiddinks. Besides Jozef Venglos (FC Porto, Aston Villa, Celtic Galsgow) we havenīt any big-caliber coach.

The highest achievement was Radolsky coaching Groclin, Bubenko in Panionios Athens, Weiss in Saturn Moscow and Pecze somewhere in Turkey. Others are starring in Katar, Oman and austrian 4th division. No big guns.


NT coach should be somebody experienced. Galis as a coach won some titles with Slovan but never achieved international succes. Outside of Slovakia, he is Mr.Nobody.

Galis under fire: he named squad for next two qualifiers (Wales, Germany) and we all are missing Filip Sebo, who scored 5x in last 3 games.

Acc.Galis, Sebo havenīt respect "some things" like turning off cell phone during lunchtime

source

acc.same source, new couch of Slovak NT could be Jan Kocian

That attack on Sebo and his father was comical, to say the least.

The man is losing it.:thmbdown:

The Spokesman for the National Team denied that report.
