Different coaches come with different kinds of strategies, The team under Rider had an approach, which was mainly on the defensive lines, but Hall is not someone who prefers such style of football. Rai said, “Hall has a different style, where he will have an attacking style.” Under the watchful eyes of Hall, the team has lost one and drawn one, so his first victory as United Sikkim's coach is still awaited.
The team may be struggling in the relegation zone as of now, but there are huge expectations from the Australian coach, as the manager said, “Under Nathan Hall, I don't think so we are going to be relegated from the I-League.” If the club manages to survive this season of I-League, which is the target of the coach, players and officials alike, one can expect bigger things from the club under Hall, if they would plying their trade in I-League next season. Talking about relegation, Rai feels that there is a difference of just one or two points in the lower half of the table, so strong home performances can help the team climb up the standings table.
Nathan Hall is the youngest coach in the I-League, which also augers well for the club. Players can walk to the coach hesitantly and talk about where their problem lies and what can be done to correct them. The step taken by United Sikkim to bring in Hall is definitely a positive step but the players also need to respond to the idea of the coach to bring favourable results.
