    This guy's inability to say positive things about the Jets (latest Fox podcast) really needles me.

    The saying "Melbourne second and third" on the pod was a pisstake from his gaff on Sunday. He spoke fondly about his time with JP and JVS. As for would he be with this team he fairly said it'd need the people he was with. He didn't have a go at Lawrie, Lee or Tranni.

    I thought he was handled the question about wanting to be there now really well. Didn't sound bitter, but disappointed.

    I'm not taking it the way you both have. It was respectful. Unless I haven't got to that part of the pod yet, it's a non-issue for me.

    The bloke wants another A-League gig, and my bet is he's in for the Sydney job. If Kenny gets the sack he'd be in for that too. Plus there's two new jobs coming up soon as well. He's not going to diss the administration of his old club. Football is a small business and that would be career suicide.

    He was very complementary of the Jets last evening and was writing Sydney off. They immediately asked Bozza if he agreed and he said if the scum beat smurfs and we beat the Reds he was on board with Miller.

    He is absolutely no chance of Sydney FC job. Could see him taking the reigns at Perth though if that opportunity arises

    I take your point, but from my POV he avoided the question entirely - which was an opportunity to comment on how well the Jets are doing, and whether he's happy for them and the club - and answered his own question instead, saying he had two good mates who no longer have jobs at Newcastle. Which was, in context, kind of negative.

    I think Miller deliberately avoids effusive praise of the Jets because to do so highlights how well Merrick has done relative to how well Miller did.

    If he were a neutral coaching expert/commentator, he might have spoken about how effectively Ernie transformed the Jets' style of play. He might have mentioned that Merrick did this despite having only limited opportunities to shape his squad.

    The obvious point is that Merrick is among very few coaches to radically, and successfully, change a team's approach to games. He has implemented a brilliant counter-attacking game with ultra-fast, relatively low-percentage, forward transitions (but not long balls).

    The other coaches to similarly radically transform teams were Postecoglou at Roar (possession at all costs), Arnold (extremely effective position planning), Popovic (defence at all costs) and GVE (who, in the early years, focused on possession and fast transition before Roar did ... just not quite as well as Ange).

    Miller's impact didn't come close. No wonder he doesn't comment much on Merrick.

    Love Simon Hill's question though...

    " Do you ever think....that should've been me".

    Wello and Perth jobs will be up for grabs Scotty.

    they are asking him to comment on how good looking his ex-wifes new fella is and that he must be a ripper in the sack.

    of course hes gonna sidestep that one.

    He'd go great at the Scum. No money, no players. Just what he is used to

    I want him to be the first A-League coach to be relegated when the Mariners go down.

    Thatís because he knows more about football than you and me.

    and he reaaaaaaaaaalllllllyyy wants you to know that.

    Heís one of those clowns that walks into a dressing room for the first time and Ďdemands respectí except everyone thought he was the towel boy.
