And the same thing can be said about Julian.

I think Ian has many holes in his conversations here. But they have been by any measure, the best deputy coaches we have had. If I had a pocket full of money (and more), I would like to have asked them back for 18 months, for their help, under some general agreements though.
Thanks for the partial vote of confidence.. but just one thing....

Just sometimes, how about Shafiul Islam being responsible for his own performance?
