I am using a new Matrix to measure how well we play the game.

The areas identified are the areas that we don’t do well traditionally

I want to see if we have learned anything from our recent world cup experience. I'll be setting set a performance target for each category and award a maximum score of 10 Points for each category. The scoring is tougher when we are playing inferior opposition. As an example a country like Seychelles is probably one of the weakest country's we are ever going to play. Anything short of a 70% possession time in our favor makes this a relative failure of an outing in my book.


1. Coaches Game Management
2. Captains Leadership
3. Influencing the Referee
4. Aesthetic Play
5. Kickoff
6. Passing
7. Set Pieces
8. Pressing the Ball
9. Quality of Goal Keeping
10. Quality of Goals Scored & Conceded


1. Coaches Game Management: Players fitness, Substitutions, concise Strategy, Responsiveness etc
2. Captains Leadership: Communication with team mates, leading by example, etc
3. Influencing the Referee: Complaining effectively when it matters, etc
4. Aesthetic Play: Clear and concise game plan, no errant balls, effective team movement, etc
5. Kickoff: Must hold the ball for more than 2 minutes before giving it away.
6. Passing: More than 70 % possession time
7. Set Pieces: Effective plan and execution
8. Pressing the Ball: I like to see us for once press the ball effectively from the front when the opponents have the ball
9. Quality of Goal Keeping: Consistent goal kicks, dealing with crosses, commanding the defense, etc
10. Quality Goals Scored & Conceded: 3 Quality goals scored vs. 0 against.

There is Maximum 100 Points attainable . I’ll set the performance targets before each game and announce the results after the game.
