Agreed, but I think it's become clear that Miha's coaching style is much like his playing style. He likes to take risks and likes to be bold. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.Just to clarify I was a fan of some of what Mihajlovic did, mostly the way he had us playing and the pressure and tempo we put on teams. I thought that was good and yes he was unfortunate with players not taking chances but he also experimented too much, for whatever reason. There were players who were obviously not good enough who got call ups.
I'm not sure one could necessarily do so, but who's to say he didn't have an idea just because it didn't go as planned?Now you might say he had to try them out but then my argument would be that as a manager he should be able to pick out the qualities that player has and know how said player would fit into the side before he even calls him up. Or at least have an idea of the same.
Once again, I never said he was a savior. I simply think people on here were too emotional when trying to properly assess his work with the NT. As a result, many on here even went as far as to predict that he wouldn't have a job, and would and is a terrible manager. However, the professionals say otherwise, which speaks volumes more than a couple loud-mouths on a forum who have no coaching experience what so ever. (That's not directed at you Dule)Like I've said before. I think the job came too soon for him. Maybe he will get a chance again when he's older and more experienced but I'm not sure he was the answer at the time.
I too think the job came too soon and I think it's clear at this moment that international football wasn't something that Miha would have wanted to be a part of for a very long time at the moment. As a young, up and coming manager, one is much better off with the experience of managing a club as it's more of a day-to-day job. Just look at Paunovic, I believe he feels the same way, just waiting for that first break in a good spot.
Naturally, we'll never know.Is he better than Curcic? Undoubtedly, would he have qualified us this time round? Perhaps but that we'll never know.
