For me one of the big difference between Curle and Brady is 'intent'.

KC played a lone centre forward who had to chase long balls. Midfielders had no time to join him.
Under JB he has THREE forwards with pace who are joined by an advanced midfielder, Watson. He is saying you 4 create and score goals because the two holding midfielders give you safety .

JB began by stopping the oil tanker from game one and has continued by turning it around. Now full steam ahead!

It is a pleasure to look forward to games again instead of enduring them.

Well done, so far, to the Brady Bunch.

Made my concerns about Brady loud and clear. I must say though that I've been mightily impressed these last 2 games (in particular) and the teams shape and tactical approach to games is very clear and concise. At the end of the day, 10 goals from the last 5 games tells its own story, and Id argue that we could have scored many more if our strikers had been ruthless.

I still have concerns that when we go a goal down or are struggling in a game, I've not seen evidence to move away from plan A (which has worked very well versus Plymouth and Pompey) and adapt accordingly. Whilst that doesn't matter when your in front in games, it does in other matches and I think our points haul would have been far higher if earlier subs had been made etc, particular in the Rochdale and Swindon games.

That isn't a negative slight, we've been exceptional this past week, and long may it continue. Charlton's results at home this year have been dreadful, so I'm really hopeful that we can kick on tomorrow evening.

What I do like about Brady is that he oozes positivity, and seems really passionate about the job in hand and the club in general. The players have responded to that and some of their performances are now at a level that I think any reasonable person wouldn't have thought possible a short while ago.

Im not going to get carried away, there's some tough games coming up and we are still right in the sh1t but we've given ourselves a decent chance and a real platform to kick on from!

I suppose it's a different mentality for Brady in first team football where results are everything. In youth games the emphasis is encouraging young players to learn good habits, technique and team play, the performance is the most important thing which reduces the need to alter the team or style of play.
At the moment the first team is like a new group of players at the start of the season. I feel confident that JB and Co. are smart enough to make appropriate changes when the team is playing is the way they want.

He has already severely criticised some players after the Swindon game so perhaps he has the wherewithal to manage players in the right manner after a defeat?   At the moment the team are his 'revitalised' players so they are for now 'great' players. He has said he will do everything possible to ensure survival in L1.

And then looked at what happened after the Swindon game .

I would suggest that JB stays away from social media after games. If he does become permanent manager at some point it will do nothing for his mental state. Imagine if supporters were allowed in the grounds and some of the vile abuse that's dished out at times.

I like his passion though particularly when discussing Lee Collins.

I really like the guy but I am worried for his well-being when he gets this involved. I do think a modern manager needs to keep one step removed from us rascals.

I really hope this job isnít too much for him, he seems to flick for one emotional outburst to another, John it really isnít personal, itís peopleís opinions.
He looks a broken man.

Not sure I agree with that. Hes passionate but frustrated with what he has available. Sowerby is now out for the season as is miller. Squad players  and youth are not stepping up.

A great interview, regardless if he is or isnít the right man for the job, we all know he is working with a dud squad!

I like him.....what a breath of fresh air after the Curle interviews.

He's getting what he can out of our squad, laying the law down to the youngsters (some of whom he coached in the U18's don't forget) and he's a very passionate guy who is wearing NTFC on his sleeve.

If we go down we go down, but at least we will go down fighting under Brady, rather than with a whimper which is where we were heading under Curle.

I donít believe we could have brought in another management team that would have got a better points tally out of this squad post Curle? The pressure these blokes are under is immense and at times they are going to lash out, just like us? I think in the morning Jon will be the first to acknowledge the emotional roller coaster us supporters are on and perhaps with hindsight cut us some slack? Many of us have been following the club for 40 years +. We have had our hearts ripped out of our chests more times than we can count and still we keep coming back and back, only to be brought to our knees time and time again. When results go against us we will lash out, and any player that doesnít appear to give his all will get slaughtered for it. But if you deliver as a manager or player when it matters you will become immortal and your name will be revered for ever. As a player you just have to decide if you have the minerals to try and become one of the exclusive group that make up the latter? Personally Iím just happy that Jon, Sammo and Rico are calling the shots on this run in because they genuinely love this club, and no amount of money you chuck at the job can buy that.

Great post,  can't disagree with any of it. Not many clubs get a management team that have a genuine affection for them and speak as honestly and emotively as Brady, you know he's speaking from the heart and deserves to get us out of the mire.
Whether he does or not remains to be seen, but I think we'd all love him to succeed.

A heartfelt passionate post that I can totally relate to...  Wouldn't want my club in anyone's else's hands right now, if any one can save us, it has to be the Brady bunch...

Very relatable interview and great not to listen to a mangers normal clichťs.
He should stay off social media, especially when you consider the kind of stuff posted is pretty tame compared to whatís out there. Itís probably lucky that weíve been behind closed doors!
We certainly wouldnít get anyone else who cares as much and Iím sure has the players backing.
Getting anything out of Monday would be huge.
