McKenna pre Bolton 17:18 - Jan 13 with 1061 viewsCharlie_pl_baxter

Just watched McKenna's interview. Things I really liked:

- Clear sense of how Bolton play and what that means for our approach
- Talked about the performance against Gills rather than the result even though we won
- When asked about players "righting some wrongs" because we lost the home fixture, he seemed almost annoyed by the idea they wouldn't approach each game with the same intensity

The final point is the biggest one for me, I think too often we've been complacent because it's only [insert tinpot L1 club here]. Hopefully McKenna has got the players treating every game with respect.

I hate when players say things like righting wrongs. Forget the last game and play this one. They don't have to prove a point. Just get the win by any means possible.

Especially with our track record of not following up on things.

I dread the player interviews pre games. Obviously have to be done. But it's been a curse.

Never be afraid to share your thoughts.

He sounds incredibly mature for such a young manager. Seems focused, determined and not too mouthy.

I tend not to pay too much attention to what our managers have had to say - its usually just cliches and soundbites that ultimately mean nothing - but I've been quietly impressed by what he's had to say so far.

Used a lovely word in the interview -humility

Describes having the humility to dig your mate out and work hard for your mate etc

The bloke is just focused personified

Agree.. the interview is very measured.... on 18:29 - Jan 13 with 781 viewsunstableblue

.... and sounds like a man very clear on the opposition and on the plan

Its going to be very interesting when we have that first game where player performance drops - at the moment the players are very bold and driven in their approach, which is difficult to maintain

Also on his BBC Suffolk he talked about not having to move players on from a financial perspective, but was also quite clear and forthright in that if any player was not fully committed in training and/or disrupting the group they would be moved on pretty quickly

Essentially my position. The lack of 'we go again' type cliches is quite refreshing.

Obviously, some might find his approach to pressers smarmy....

Surely you must think he seemed almost annoyed throughout the interview then? He was the same all interview.
