    Set Piece Coach

    I've seen Austin leaping around and shouting out to the players numerous times. Is this his role? Seems quite flamboyant for someone who trains set pieces.

    Is how we set up for each attacking free kick now up to him?

    More or less mate, defending set pieces are also under his remit. He does the same job for the Scotland national team as well.

    For me, Smith should be the only one shouting out orders!

    Yes. When I saw him yelling and carrying on after a set piece didn't work it really didn't sit well.

    And defending EV? Didn't know that either. What about an offensive coach, penalty kick coach, holding midfield coach, heading coach, half time psychology coach. Ok I'm done now,

    Sometimes I feel we need a 'passing' coach, often we are seen to fail to pass a ball 5 yards, I know its the basics but passing to me is as important as any skill....

    What about a 'Warming up coach' or the 'How to look cool walking off the bus ignoring the waiting fans coach' 🙄
