    We're down to ten men but two nil up, exactly what is wrong with telling them not to get complacent?

    Because they are 2-0 up away from home with 10 men. You should have been more positive.

  3. It's a pretty negative team talk, I only use it if I'm playing a much lower rep team and your team is easily winning the game.
    Like Mike said, a more positive one would have gone down better.

  4. It was to not get complacent, exactly how is that negative? That's acknowledging the good first half performance but trying to keep their heads for the next half. I didn't exactly say I was unhappy or something. I don't see how it is unreasonable to tell players not to get complacent even if we were Barnet beating Barcelona or something.

    Dont get complacent doesnt acknowledge a good first half. Its like saying, we are just about doing enough here. If you wanted that, you should have used the one the assistant recommended.

    And you certainly wouldnt use it as barnet vs barcelona.

    It also implies that they're getting complacent, making mistakes and switching off. It's only from personal experience that I say it's a negative team talk because based on the reactions I've had from games it seems that way.
    It's not about what is and isn't reasonable in real life, the game runs by a different set of rules and this is one of them.

    If you wanted them to keep their heads in the game just go with "good half more of it in the second" or "wasn't bad but we could improve" types, like what your assistant recommended.

    Perhaps the game should have made it a bit clearer then.

    But that's not necessarily what you should be saying to a side 2-0 up away from home with 10 men. Hence why your players are confused

    They were'nt exactly playing out of their skins, they were lucky to be ahead and if they got complacent, West Brom could have pulled goals back. Still not getting how this is unreasonable.

    Their ratings suggest they are doing fairly well, but can play better. They are also 2-0 up away from home with 10.

    That is virtually the definition of good, but we can do better. Hence what the assistant manager said.
