- Jason Koumas / John Morrissey
There are some alarming similarities between our start this season and Barnes's entirely forgettable tenure: an imbalance in the side, shortage of defensive options, apparent lack of team spirit and ageing players on unrealistic contracts (Foster, Koumas). As I have said above, there are some mitigating circumstances but RM must have the biggest job of his managerial career on his hands in trying to turn things round. As suggested above, switching to 4-5-1 / 4-3-3 could plug some gaps and enable us to battle out a couple of results in the short term at least.
