It looks like it's coming home. Can you recognise yourself, your family and friends?

Resource Investigator

The enthusiastic one, leading the singing/Mexican wave whilst handing out the beer (on special offer).

Teamworker

The caring one. Gets funny looks as they start to feel sorry for the losing team. (They have played really well, actually.)

Co-ordinator

The calm one remarking on the contributions of everyone, manager and coach included. After all, it’s a team game.

Shaper

The one shouting. Alternates between ‘Come on, shoot!’ and ‘Come on, Ref!’

Implementer

The disciplined one. Has filled in the wall chart and is heard talking about their love of the set piece.

Completer Finisher

The anxious one. Just loves the VAR. And the accuracy of some of those free kicks… beautiful.

Specialist

The knowledgeable one. Hasn’t realised that no-one is listening to their ‘greatest goals scored in the second half of a semi-final by the eventual winners’ research.

Plant

The one who thought it was tennis. Wonders whether increasing the size of goal would make the whole game more exciting (this is Meredith’s observation).

Monitor Evaluator

The strategic one. ‘Well, if they had chosen the previous formation and stuck to their guns about substitutions, they may have stood a chance…’.

 

And do you recognise any Belbin behaviours in others on the pitch, or side-lines? We would love to know!

 

P.S. On reflection, we believe it IS coming home…
