    Jean-Paul de Marigny Departs Wanderers


    mack

    Jean-Paul de Marigny was today left the Western Sydney Wanderers, just 9 months after he ascended to the head coach role following the sacking of Markus Babbel.

    The Wanderers released a very short statement today on their website: "Western Sydney Wanderers FC have today parted ways with head coach Jean-Paul de Marigny. The club thanks Jean-Paul for his efforts and wishes him success in the future. The club will make an announcement in the coming days on a replacement coach."

    It is unclear at this early stage if the move was a sacking, or if de Marigny left the club of his own accord. 

    Jean-Paul de Marigny's time at the club did result in a small uplift in the clubs performances, and he was able to keep the Wanderers from losing a Sydney derby this season. His final statistics in charge were 5 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses from 12 games, his best results coming in February as he lead the Wanderers to a 1-0 derby win, after smashing Adelaide United 5-2.

    In the post Lockdown period however, the 3-1 loss to Perth and the 5-3 loss to Western United culled the small hopes of playing finals football, and a 2-1 win over Melbourne Victory closed out the season.

    The Wanderers have not announced a replacement at this time. Whoever it is will have their work cut out for them, as the club will be dealing with the loss of our best player Mitch Duke, having signed nothing but youth player upgrades at this point in the pre-season and with a massive cut in the salary cap looming.

    Wanderers Chairman, at the time of de Marigny's appointment in July said “with JP at the helm and our squad working hard at our fantastic Centre of Football, we eagerly anticipate the return of the Hyundai A-League and watching our group take the steps required to make our many members and fans proud.”

    Lederer's words ring hollow with the erstwhile head coach leaving just three months after his 'permanent' appointment.

    exactly. Everyone just looks at the "results". They forget the games.

    The game we won was Rd1 and that was more the players putting in a huge shift as an FU to Popa and sticking together. Foxe threw away a 2-0 lead to SFC by refusing to do any subs and SFC came back to draw level. He was too focused on the FFA Cup semi on the Tuesday which we got completely outplayed in and lost. Many of his "fans" forget this game. We were useless. The rest of the AL games were not great and we were going through the motions. There was no sign of tactical nous at all. Would not have been a good appointment to give him the full time job. Then again, we got Gombau and we know how that went.

    I do vaguely remember that semi final. All I remember is Daniel Adlung? scoring a belter against us for Adelaide.

    I was at the derby as well and I must admit it was very disappointing throwing away that lead, however we could've lost it cause im pretty sure Matt Simon hit the post in the last minute.

    honestly i was mostly thinking about his victory and wellington sides which were imo boring, forgot about newcastle

    Merrick in season 2 and 4 with victory was very entertaining 

    go on you tube and look for Fred and Hernandez 

    their best seasons and their teams played fantastic football 

    we could do a lot worse (and have) then Merrick

    I’m not a fan of the A-League coach merry go round

    We are a Western Sydney club that had a strong grassroots culture and I think we should choose an NPL coach and let them have a step up 

    Mark Rudan did it

    Yeah MV became the biggest club in the competition under Merrick.

    Fred, Allsop, Archie, Hernandez, Muscat, Theo, Vargas etc.

    Also great players like Claudinho and Leandro Love.

    They struggled a few years after they sacked him and only became competitive again under Muscat.

    Crittenden for me

    I agree with you.  Blacktown City have been a very successful and  well organised club for a long time, both our grades got an absolute hiding from them Friday night,

    You would have thought it was the Blacktown under 20s who had all the highly regarded young  footballers, not us

    If there ever was a time to appoint him it would be now, if he's interested.

    Haha. I was going to post that hours ago but I thought I'd give Mack the benefit of the doubt as he got the article out quickly.

    Stick with a tried no tested NPL coach. That seems to be the quality of the team we will have next season.

    Okon wasn't too flash at the Mariners....being a good player doesn't always convert into being a good coach. Looks like Harry Kewell might be looking for another job soon :xnod:

    Didn't do much with the Olyroos before that either.

    No to all three, thanks.

    Do we just put the job out to tenure and hire who ever is the cheapest.

    Don't give Lederer ideas!

    Papas and Talay reportedly being considered to take the job.

    Can't see either of them joining this shipwreck.

    Would be happy with either of those (but agree they may not want the poisoned chalice). And would like to also see Crittenden if he were interested.

    I haven't forgotten the cup game at Campbelltown, as much as I might have tried. Dreadful performance

    just been deperatures so far, there has to be a falling out to get rid of JP after just a few months again signing him on as new coach, lets hope the new coach comes in soon and then chooses the team, we are becoming more and more of a circus the last few years, lot of members are not renewing this coming season, the passion is dying in the stands and so is the passion from the players

    We are a joke of a football club. 

    Someone needs to ask Lederer and the way how he has ran our football club for the last 6 years. Whatever happened to the external enquiry Lederer said he will get?

    Sounds like it was kept internal to the club.

    Agree also. We've become that 7th heaven club we used to laugh at...... and now its humble pie time.

    Not that I would take that comment from a smurf without punching them in the nose.... but it does hurt (a lot)

    Never in my wildest did I think a club with this much potential could ever be here - we ARE football... and yet they manage to f$#% it up. You would think the afl or Ch7 are running the club :(

    It’s been like this for three years now this is a minor **** up compared to Popavic going a week before the season with no contingency plan in place, or the move to ANZ and dismantle the squad year

    The new coach is there, there just waiting for Tim Gilbert to arrange to interview him and share his story of how this is his dream with everyone.
