Les Reed is under-pressure after only a month in charge of Charlton Athletic with some reports claiming defeat against Wycombe in the Carling Cup tonight would earn him the sack. But while he has struggled to turn the Addicks’ season around, imagine the impact the poor run of form has had on his email coaching service.
Reed provides Smart Sessions – a coaching plan emailed to paying subscribers promising to: ‘boost your team’s performance… and shrink your preparation time to 5 minutes.’ Reed claims: "Theyâ€™ll wonder where on earth you get your fantastic new ideas and inspirational techniques every week. Or how you became such an amazing coach almost overnight." I think I’d be tempted to see how Charlton fare over Christmas before paying up!
