How much Kowalchuck is responsable of that vs Lemaire (and Parize return ?)
I will agree that bad coaching can make a team going down no doubt, but how much outcoaching can you have for an edge vs other professional coached team.
IT will be very hard to have the coaching factor with good sample size, would like to see study about coach influence, but they are probably hard to do.
