Well done MM and TC. Did excellent with lots of ordinary. Clear out the remaining bad apples and one or two others that don't fit in and get a winger and a play maker and we will be competitive. If only we could do the same with our fans! For those of you that have no understanding of how to rebuild a club from the mess left by two previous idiots...it does not happen until all the contracts run out or we manage to sell them. Paul Taylor anyone?
Let's work with what we have - Hewitt, Hyam, Bishop, Marriot - our own youngsters, let's play the players we bought but who really have not been played - Woody and Taylor. Then let's only bring in real quality - none of this journeyman midfield. In fact let's go find another striker, a really good midfielder and a really good keeper. The rest will fall into place. What's the worst that might happen with that lot - another mid-table finish. So what? At least we'd "own it".
If we had any pretence at trying this year for the play-offs we would have needed to replace McGoldrick the moment he got injured. We didn't. So best now that we all just accept our lot. Finish tenth perhaps?
Blame the distracted one dimensional coaching. We shaded the first half. They reorganised and went three five two. Instead of moving a redundant Tunnicliffe into the middle and pushing up Cresswell we just stayed stuck at 442.
If the ROI don't resolve the appointment by the weekend then it will be time for MM to make a clear statement of intent. This club has proven time and again how wonderful a place it is to manage. Every manager we have ever had has been given time and space to work without interference from owners and boards. The fans are patient and generous. It is time that respect was reciprocated...
