    Thanks for posting that. Must admit the article surprised me, as I've always thought that players who found the game as easy as Giggs did do not always make the best managers because they struggle to understand why lesser mortals struggle to carry out their instructions and get by on their reputations to some extent. However, it sounds like Giggs, like Glenn Hoddle, another exception to my rule, is a thinker about the game.

    Great article. He's going to want to be back in club management sooner or later. I wonder if it's still possible for Wales to have a part-time manager.

    I admire the way he has integrated the young players into the team, and bonus points for realising early on that he could build the team around Ampadu. It's still a work in progress, but we are going to be a decent team in the not too distant future.

    I agree that Giggs has done well to bring so many youngsters through while keeping results largely positive.
    Not sure what you mean about building the team around Ampadu? He's done ok

    Things have developed under Giggs. In his first games I couldn't work out what the attacking plan or defensive plan was but we seem to be getting the defensive side of things right now. He's definitely taken us forward from Coleman's time here but unlikely to reach same heights simply because we don't have a prime Bale in attack at the moment.

    The two centre backs were comfortable on the ball in the first half, and dealing with crosses is something that needs to be sorted out on the training ground.

    I said getting rather than got We are much better defensively now than when Giggs first joined.

    wales -bales the modern game is built around being comfortable on the ball so nothing new there

    whats more alarming was the ease of the 3 goals with routing high balls into the box now thats bread and butter stuff in our game

    Yeah, and everything I said was confirmed by the investigation

    Rodon looks ok, and Mepham has had problems with injuries, so let's see how it goes in the next two games.

    A limited team/country like ours who have the fraction of player's to pick from compared to other countries have to do the basics of not conceding from set pieces, corners, whipped in crosses ................
    I would have raised a glass to a 0-0 clean sheet game tonight.

    I remember when a few critised the appointment, glad he has managed to make a fist of it , perhaps Utd went for the wrong old boy

    Re: Giggs

    it's funny how no one ever mentions Tom Lockyer, but I've never seen us defend us poorly as that with him in the team.

    True, he should get back in when he's fit. I'd be tempted to play a flat Jack 4 of Roberts, Cabango, Rodon and Davies on Sunday. Or maybe stick Neco in instead of Roberts but then the term "flat Jack 4" doesn't work
