HIGHLY RESPECTED native girls’s soccer coach, Charles Edwards, doesn’t imagine there’s a manner ahead for the senior nationwide girls’s soccer staff below interim coach Vin Blaine.
Edwards’ feedback come on the again of final week’s revelation of a letter, written by a senior Reggae Woman and signed by the vast majority of the gamers, asking for the removing of Blaine as head coach.
The letter is alleged to have cited weaknesses in teaching, communication and organisation.
With simply two months to go earlier than the Concacaf Ladies’s Championship, the place the Reggae Girlz are drawn towards Haiti, Mexico and america, Edwards says there may be merely no time to repair the connection between Blaine and the gamers. Though, Edwards says, getting a brand new coach to take over may very well be simply as disruptive to the staff’s probabilities.
“What has happened to the senior Reggae Girlz is very sad. The timing is very bad. But is there any way of controlling that damage which has been done, which is a very bad damage? I do not see that happening,” stated Edwards.
“I’d urge them [the JFF] to maneuver shortly as a result of we’re at a really delicate stage and we shouldn’t have time.
“We want apply video games, we’d like camps and programmes to get the staff collectively as a result of we’re going to be in a really powerful zone.
“We play Mexico in Mexico and the USA, which is not an easy task. So the best thing is for them to act immediately,” he stated.
“Moving forward with a new coach can be a very delicate situation too. But the JFF needs to put on the big boy pants and resolve the issue very quickly. There is no time to sit down and wonder what they are going to do. They have to figure it out now, pronto, and keep the programme moving.”
HE HAS TO GO
Edwards has a lot respect for Blaine, however says the scenario means he has to go.
“I don’t wish to say Vin ought to step apart however I don’t see how they’re going to restore the harm. I don’t see that taking place proper now as a result of it’s not one or two gamers who’ve signed this letter, it’s just about ninety-five per cent of the squad.
“So if the JFF forces the difficulty and continues with Vin Blaine there could also be a large breakdown within the player-coach relationship.
“How do you get the women to be motivated and to cooperate with the coach and his directions? The harm has been executed already and loads of psychological components are at stake in the event that they proceed with Vin.
“So a coach change at this time might be the best thing to move the programme forward with the time frame that we have,” he stated.
The JFF govt committee, led by president Michael Ricketts, was as a result of meet yesterday concerning the matter, with former assistant coach Lorne Donaldson being touted as a probable substitute for Blaine if that route is taken.
Blaine has contended that outdoors forces are behind a marketing campaign to get him eliminated.
