    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.

    Biggest club in Australia

    Best fans

    Best training facilities

    Best stadium

    Everything is primed here for success

    This is my dream job..I want this to be a success

    The last 5 years have been unacceptable 

    I will make the hard decisions

    I want quick quality and attractive football 

    We have the best youth set up..I am excited...

    The club owners are as desperate for success as me..........

    Puts on helmet ...

    Consider 

    Approaching Harry given his side is running last...

    He would bring massive media attention.... arguably good players and he is a former Westie....

    I am not saying Harry would be perfect however looking at others mentioned he IMO is their equal if not better.

    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 

    I honestly think that we could have ridden out the Popovic and Spotless issues, if we had for example gotten Rudan or Talay or someone who knew the AL and the club ethos (hard working, etc) and not try to change the culture.

    Here is the squad you have for the next year - work with it !!! - then the year after we will see about recruitments.

    As much as enjoyed Gambau in Adelaide, we don't share the same DNA.

    Overseas coaches without a long term project (3-5 years) usually don't do well. 

    But it's not just the football - JT failed to work with the RBB and fans in general !!!!

    I remember he wasn't supportive of approved smoke and/or confetti (and yet hundreds of kids f%$$#ng do paper planes) at the new stadium launch.

    I don't have any inside knowledge but I wouldn't be surprised if Patrick Zwaanswijk gets the job.  Just noticed that he was coach of the year in NPL2 in 2019, has just recently been brought in by someone from within the club.

    I have no idea of his coaching methods, if anyone here does I'd like hear your comments.  I'd still prefer Mark Crittenden but we're going to find out fairly quickly from the reporting I've seen.

    Jacob Burns leaving director of football role at Perth (just announced). Could he be heading East for a similar role?

    Wrong Harry. Lets steal Harry Redknapp from the South Coast Mariners.

    What would entice A'rry Redknapp...payments in a brown envelope and an Australia bank account in his dogs name...good to go..

    With the way the squad may look when we finally get underway we may finally get to see if #NoGrozosNoParty is really up to scratch. From the look of it a lot of the youth have to really put in.

    What a **** show lol.

    They expect us to pay membership when there is barely 11 players in our team and no coach.

    Too focused in the jersey design but not enough on actual players.

    I love the Wanderers and the community but those people running the show is ******* it up.

    Joke of a club? Are we even a club??

    Would be happy if true, he's done good things in Newy.

    Very entertaining team after lockdown and only lost one game under him from memory.

    Yes let’s not crack open any champagne till we see what we get, but JP leaving/ being forced out is not a negative.

    I actually give the club management props for realising he was never going to cut it  and acting before the season started - if that’s what happened.

    Although this would also beg the question of why he was given a permanent contract before the season ended in the first place.

    In the current state of the world and the game this wasn't wanted or planned. They would have stuck with him but circumstances must have quickly changed....

    Maybe it’s my new found James Rodriguez inspired optimism, but the club have punted JP is probably a good thing and better to do it now than later 

    Popa = Moyes - solid got results on a budget 

    Gumby = Bobby Brownshoes Martinez - all about the philosophy and endless passing around (tantric football) couldnt organise a defence

    Babbel = koeman - Big name foreign manager with rich playing history unfortunately a better footballer than manager 

    JP = Big Sam Alladyce - short term, unpopular and played **** football but for a couple of gritty defensive games

    ??? = Ancelotti- Sexual football win stuff let the good times roll

    Told you we are Everton

    • I went to Redcliffe when I drove around SE QLD a few years back...it is a bit Gosford the town in parts, but much more going on. Best fish n chips I have ever had in Australia there by a mile. Its where that Bee Gees walk is, which i worth a look. Should be a decent enough away day.
    • it's basically the Gosford Stadium of Brisbane. It's 40 minutes from Suncorp Stadium and up to 60 from the more southern areas of Brisbane.
    • According to Gatt, Melbourne Victory are looking to sign 32 year old former Benin international Rudy Gestede
