Why on earth does Morris not get much game time when he keeps possession well and certainly offers more than Lewis or Crawford
We already know the players will play for Dawes based on his caretaker role earlier in the season.Although we have fallen further behind the top three, ironically reaching the play-offs is still very much in our hands as Salford, Bradford City and Exeter all lost, while Newport, Carlisle and Leyton Orient drew. None of the challenging pack won.
But I agree that tonight we reached a watershed and things must change drastically if we are to salvage a play-off spot and have a chance to win at Wembley. A new manager (if the right man was available immediately) would need time more to work with the team, so the question is does Mark think Keith has lost the dressing room? He will know and will make the right decision. We are lucky to have Dawes/Parky as an option, but could they relight the spark? I feel for all the fans but Mark has a really tough decision to make.
Enjoy it I did not! Credit that he actually took the interview and didn't sulk like some managers do. He knows what's wrong but I'm not convinced he knows what to do to put it right. Is it just blind faith or does he have a trick up his sleeve? He seemed remarkably calm for a man under pressure, which rather worries me.
