Well that didn't last long 2 2
Maybe try a different continent next time Bozit is a concern that Adkins hasn’t actually been able to stop the rot. We needed something from this game but didn’t get it. Will be interested in hearing the reports. Even me being in Scotland doesn’t have an effect!
Difficult to argue with most of that unfortunately.Unfortunately I fear we’re this years basket case, we’re going to be lucky to get to 40 points.
The squad is a complete mess - it’s unbalanced, the midfield terribly weak/undynamic/lacking goals/flair/tackling and there’s a complete lack of pace throughout the team, with no competition for two centre backs who both seem disinterested/disillusioned.
This has been brewing for several years and is coming home to roost, if you take a step back and look at the club, we’re completely dysfunctional -
Appoint Jackson, never going to work. Sack Hill on eve of play offs with a 50% win ratio and cup final (yes he was mad and form had fallen off a cliff, but sacking him and giving it to Dawes with no experience was bizzare and never going to work).
Then bring Mellon back because we can't think of anyone else. Then completely change approach to a ‘development model’, when he has all his success with experienced players. Then sack him when it shockingly doesn’t work, spend 3 months looking for an ‘exceptional candidate’, only to appoint the failed assistant who is partly responsible for everything since we returned to league 2.
Then put the chairman's mate and very well qualified manager in as 'technical director' day after, not exactly a vote of confidence, or clear what he's there for, beyond an insurance policy.
Then spend a pre-season playing 4-3-3, only to sign forwards that fit a 4-4-2. Then sack Dawes and put a manager in charge who apparently doesn’t want to be a manager anymore.
It’s a complete shambles and we pay the highest season tickets in the league to witness it! Desperately need Palios and co to let someone else run the football side and stand well back. I fear we’re going to be down before the end of March.
Indeed, it's very depressing! Really hope I'm proven wrong, but nothing about the club seems positive at the moment, it feels eerily similar to previous relegation seasons.Put like that roverstillidie, at a time of disappointment, it is difficult to argue with, but Taylor and Saunders do have pace…….I am struggling to expand further.
