take losses in all 50+ games if only I could ensure that one more extra kid becomes a really good player for us in the future
. Just like majority of regulars on SC, I'd of course would prefer Belavskis, but when given talant (like U18 WC) Tambijevs delivers, so I'm not sure he for sure is destroying something at HK Riga currently. That said I wouldn't be said if he was given a license to walk. And the job given to someone with a little bit of experience in any coaching.
As for Justinov's idea of keeping Dinamo foreigners here and morphing them into coaches, it's basically a pipe dream. Not every great player can become a great coach. Still Latvia is no Denmark, I can't remember one foreigner in any sports who after retiring stayed here. Maybe if Hartigan was kept for some years, it could of happened, but currently? I don't think so. (DR should go after Schastlivy
, him maybe we could keep here for obvious reasons)
But this is the thing Tambijevs DOES NOT provide,how can you put rihards bukarts on 4th line when was 2nd in scoring? Why? to put Ainars"Bust"Podziņš in the 1st line?
