Novel suggestion for managers
It's almost universally acknowledged that the crowd is the 12th man able to affect the course of a game if their input is strong enough. I felt for a while a good manager could enhance the crowd effect by addressing the crowd before a game via the public address system. This could be a valuable asset in the right hands - but obviously if done badly could be a disaster.
In effect what I'm suggesting is that the manager makes the crowd feel more at one with the team (who could be on the pitch at the same time) and the team at one with the crowd.
What do you think? Which managers do you think could pull it off and which ones would make a mess of it?
