Well, I don’t know about that but what I can tell him is that the special bond will last about six defeats in a row and he will be on his bike.

There is no special bond. You can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink.

The problem is not management, it is the players. They should be on a minimum wage and if they win they will get a bonus, they might try a bit harder.

So Gary, I should be looking over your shoulder. The only people that get reward for failure are bankers.
