This is one of the most infuriating aspects of all of this. There are numerous examples of small countries zigging while others zag, so to speak, and punching well above their weight as a result. Uruguay has a population of 3 million odd and yes, they absolutely live the game while benefiting from it being the only show in town but they absolutely have not followed the Pepball possession-heavy template of other nations.

For instance they have the kids playing on small pitches to get as many touches as possible but they also encourage physicality and a certain amount of gamesmanship, knowing full well that they'll never consistently beat the likes of a Spain, France or Brazil at their own game, as such.

Why the hell would we follow an overly technical and possession-based template? Why can't we see the folly in that? What is wrong with these people?

Would suggest you read the Pathways program document. It covers a chunk of what you have mentioned.

I haven't yet but I did hear the interview with Canham and saw that he alluded to a more pragmatic approach, which is both welcome and vital.

If Jim Crawford comes in as interim manager (as I expect) and we beat or draw with a Belgium B team. Beat Lithuania. I guarantee you he will be hard to dislodge with Canham/Hill in charge. It will be well known on the football managerial "coach" grapevine exactly what is on offer/expected. And I don't see a rush for even moderately successful managers to rush in now or later this year.
