    Sincerely, hardly can anyone predict what exactly Randy has in the kitty

    I can’t imagine that the only and singular viable experience he has, that can be pointed to is his stint at Trinidad and Tobago. Maybe probably being an American as well.

    I was probably expecting to hear a former USA, Germany, Norway or Swedish National Female Team Coach, or something. Here’s someone who has even turned you down in the penultimate

    The truth is, we have less problems to deal with at the continental level. Improvements we are looking to make is at the global stage

    Until he’s able to churn out intimidating performances with technical depth, tactical discipline and table turning methodologies on the global stage, I personally remain unconvinced with his appointment.

    At the same time, we can not afford to underestimate his capabilities. We’ll wait for time to prove him.
