im not really impressed with his credentials but i hope he can do the talking. It seemed like he is good on pointing out everything about the team but he should prove himself that he is well capable of handling our team
I agree with strikerbon. Credential-wise he is stil not good for a national team. But who knows, maybe he is good.
Indeed, the PFF should be the one making official announcements in this matter. Dan Palami may have demanded a certain degree of autonomy when he agreed to be the national team's manager and financier, but announcements like this do have to be done properly. Considering the previous mess that happened when Weiss replaced McMenemy, the current misinformation could have been avoided. To be fair, Palami admits that things aren't final, but it sure sounds like he has made up his mind. What strikes as odd to me is this candidate the PFF is interviewing tonight. It's starting to sound like they are conducting their own search without Palami. After all, had he known about this candidate, he wouldn't have made his choice just yet.
My guess is Dan Palami made the choice but did not consult with Araneta before the news leaked out. Since the PFF should have have the final say on any choice, I can understand why Araneta was a little bit miffed at the premature announcement.
There is precedent for a good experienced player who has not managed a team before, taking over a head coaching position of a national team and succeeding. German legend Jurgen Klinsmann took over the German national team in 2004 without any previous head coaching experience whatsoever and even changed the way the Germans played, preferring a more attacking style of play than the traditional solid defensive mindset that they were famous for in the past. He was criticized in the German media for this, but their performance in the 2006 World Cup silenced his critics and his successor Low continued this style of play after Klinsmann declined to renew his contract after the World Cup.
Having said that, that doesn't mean that Dooley will do the same thing, but it is possible that his playing experience at a high level and his exposure to Klinsmann's ideas might rub off on our team. If he does become the official head coach, I hope he follows what Klinsmann did.
The fact that he was a tactically sound defensive player during his playing days as a defenceman, also gives me hope that he will not be like the tactically naive Weiss who doesn't even have any kind of playing experience to compensate for his coaching inadequacies.

it seems like it's not only the national team that need a new coach but the PFF management as well is need of a new president. Like, seriously many are complaining on coach Weiss coaching style but what has the PFF done so far for the national team not only to the senior team? None either from decent pitches, training facilities, physical fitness and skill trainers.

Its 80% done but now were back to 60 ! . hehe... there's some problems and stuff, according to my sources . but believe me he's not the top choice of the PFF for the coaching position ! . but the azkals team management thinks otherwise .
BoyBacolod: If some UAAP or NCAA schools will join the new league in one form or another, it may remove the gap between U22s and seniors. The schools can devise a system akin to sports academies, education is important after all.

BoyBacolod: Will the PFL be like the San Marino league system, where there are no so-called "home" stadiums.

BoyBacolod: Rules are rules are rules. The two clubs should have known better. They are given loads of time to act on it. And to those who say PFF sucks, sometimes they do but one thing they are consistent is sticking to the rules.

BoyBacolod: Why I like UAAP football, no more extra games for seeding.Makes me think about European efficiency. Wish gayahin din sa basketball (very sketchy tiebreakers), like Euroleague.

@BoyBacolod: Hamak na mungkahi lang. Mabuti siguro kung maipromote ulit ang larong sipa. Daming maling sa sipa na mga bata, mabuting transistion for futsal, kung hindi regular football. Parang sa Thailand, sepak takraw, o chinlone sa Myanmar.

BoyBacolod: As long as Ricky Yanson is professional to Ceres FC and extends support to the Azkals in general (Ceres Azkals in particular) during home games, he can be PFF president in my book. Much better will be reconciling with Leo, though that idea is Farfetch'd.

BoyBacolod: Kaya fans wishing that Ricky Yanson wins the PFF presidency is akin to GMA fans wishing that Congress and President Duterte will not renew ABS-CBN's franchise.

BoyBacolod: DDS trolls underestimated the SEA football community. Having no prior exposure to football culture, they dismiss any and all so-called sabotages as destabilization plots, to the point that they do not support the teams, especially the women.
