Well, I guess that these fellas are gonna hire even worse coach than Muslin. It's also not the smartest move to fire the coach just a bit before the WC. They were probably like ''hey, he really knows his job but he doesn't want to cooperate with us, doesn't want to put SMS in team, so he needs to go.. yeah, his game is also really boring, he likes to defends''. They perhaps don't know what are they doing and I don't think that they've fired Muslin due a serious professional reasons. I wish they did, but..
By the way, Savic surely deserves his place in the defence.
From those (candidates) that i know, there's no worse manager than Muslin. Even Weiss, former Georgian manager is obviously better, outplayed Muslin in both games with much weaker side, it was embarassing to see how Georgia controled the game in Belgrade for very long period (without Ananidze), and in Tbilisi they had 110% chance to score for 2:0, but their player missed the open goal.
On the other hand, Weiss doesn't look as a good choice, because he is far from being a pragmatic manager, his style is possession based, he made Georgia look quite serious on the ball, but he took over in march 2016. Also he didn't opt to close the game in Tbilisi (neither in Belgrade, but who gives a fuck, it wasnt important for them) so their players were not able to hold the tempo of pressing and running, and we scored goals on pure individual quality. He could be a choice if you want to make a system, but you hire him before the qualifiers (like Georgians did) and you also know that his idealistic approach can cost you.
Not ideal, but surely better than Muslin anyway.
Never seen Jovanović and his teams, but just that one result with Apoel in 2012. HIGHLY LIKELY (not going to say surely) puts him above Muslin.
Stanojević would be a much better solution, from various reasons, but the biggest would me a motivational. Stanojević is far from being a tactical genius, but he has loads of energy, he's still young, he could use his methods and his approach to install his fighting spirit, you don't need long period of time, especially in tournament such aa WC. You have players playing for their homeland, you just need that final touch in motivating. A speech, literally one speach before the game. Just a basic set up, with cautious approach and extra dose of motivation, thats sort of thing Stanojević gives to you. Muslin is too old, cant give them an extra final motivating moment + is tactically inept.
A much much better solution.
For Prosinečki, almost the same case as Weiss. Ive seen Azerbaijan vs Germany this year. He brought the system, won the highest amount of points for them in history, but also is idealistic, and is not the best solution to takeover just before the tournament. Yeah, forgot to say that he tried to outplay Germany, they even scored a goal for 1:1, eventually lost 1:4.
Again, same conclusion. Not ideal, but cant be worse than Muslin.
At the end, Muslin is just a shit defensive manager. We conceded 10 goals against Wales (2) Austria (5) Ireland (2) Georgia (1) in 8 matches against them.
For every of those goals, literally, you can find Muslin's mistake. Line being too high (the best example Burgstaler's goal against us in Wien), just due to his poor man managment (Stefan Mitrovićs shockers) or trying to play from the back against teams that can press very well (Wales away, Nastasić giving away the ball, Bale scoring) Georgia away as a mix of bad managment and tactical solution (Kolarov, played out of position as a LCB, giving the ball away under pressure)
The number of conceded big chances (a real statistical category) was extremely high. From the positions the Georgians made in both Tbilisi and Belgrade, a serious team would score 6. Lucky for us, pressing, running and just being a limited team made them scoring only one in two games.
His instructions against Austria away, were so bad, that he literally sounded like an idiot. We were needlesly high, and on 1:1 he actually shouted "why are we playing back passes"?! Instead of playing cleverly, and trying to keep the draw, he went for a win, and deservedly lost, a 1 goal margine was too small, Austrians should've scored 5 at least. With that eventual draw, a draw against Georgians wouldve be enough to secure the spot. Ofcourse, you must go for a win against them at home, but we needed to win, and that added an extra fear between our players.
At the end, not playing Sergej MS is just extremely stupid. A fucking beast, one of the best young attacking midfielders in Europe, a leader of Lazio, as good as Alli, score for fun, assist for fun, can drop dreeper as a CM (his physicall presence allows him that, he's no worse than Pogba in defence), can be used in so many ways,and you ignore him?
Idk what are the reasons of FSS to sack him. I agree with you that highly unlikely is just connected with sports. But i don't care at the end of a day. They can't choose a worse coach, and if they choose wisely, they can get a better options by a million miles.
