I don't disagree but the structure he put into place could only deliver so much. It peaked by making it to the ECF and then getting obliterated when teams found out how to counter-act it.
The structure was a double-edged sword: patched a lot of player injures and sub-standard talent but never allowed the team to play any better than how bad their opponent played. It was completely reactive.
