Morsy: I've Found a Good Level of Consistency
Thursday, 18th Apr 2024 16:00

Player of the Year Sam Morsy believes he has found a good level of consistency this season but feels he’s still capable of improvement.

The 32-year-old was handed the Harwich Rosebowl following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with his former club Middlesbrough.

“I've managed to find a good level of consistency,” Morsy told the club site. “I've been happy with my form again this season.

“It's just always about pushing and trying to get better and trying to improve. I think that's the only mentality you can have.

“I think the moment you believe you can't improve, then your trajectory is going to be down.

“That's one of the big qualities of the staff, that they are trying to improve every player, and that's just something which I live my life by, trying to improve and trying to better myself, so being here in this environment has suited me perfectly. Staff drive standards and so do we.

“I still feel there's room to improve. I'd be disappointed if this was the best of what I've got, so I'm going to keep improving, keep pushing and see where it takes me.”

Reflecting on the end of the season with the Blues a point clear at the top with three games left to play after the current two-week gap, Morsy said: “It’s great that we’ve been so competitive at such a tough level.

“It's never going to be easy to get to the Premier League and we shouldn't expect it to be easy either. If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth doing.

“We're going to have some big challenges and that is the test in these next few weeks; can we overcome these challenges?

“We've enjoyed this season and we enjoy being together. We're going to fight to the death for each other.”

Meanwhile, former Blues defender Steven Taylor has been appointed the manager of newly-formed Dubai-based club Al Qabila. Taylor, 38, was previously in charge of another Dubai side Gulf United with whom he won promotion from the UAE Third Division via the play-offs in 2021/22 and the UAE Second Division League title the following season.

In my opinion, he was the standout choice.
They have all played well though but Morsy literally holds this team together

I was surprised to see that he wasn’t in the championship team of the year.

8/10 or more every game. What a player.

Time to find the best form of your life, super Sam, for the next three games. Already a hero, time to be a legend.

Tell us something we don’t know Sam <3

The Rose bowl would look rather more spectacular if they gave it to him with some actual flowers in it, surely someone’s name a rose after Sir Bobby by now?

Doesn't have a bad game. Last Saturday was his poorest game for a while - at fault for their goal and a couple of misplaced passes - but still one of our better players in that game, vitally important at driving us forward. So hard to find players so strong and comfortable at receiving the ball in dangerous areas. Crucial IMO that we start developing/bringing through a replacement for him - his engine won't keep going forever and he'll always be missing 5-6 games a season thorough suspension.

Balls. He has a fuchsia named after him, not a rose.. come on horticulturists, sort it out!

We could do with importing or cultivating more players through the spine of the side who show the character,determination and driven influence SM brings to our game !
Well done indeed this season : and what all this says about the management and attention KM and Co bring !

If we go up
Is he good enough for premiership

Edmundo added 20:13 - Apr 18
Would love him to score a vital goal for us in these last 3: he deserves more of the plaudits for his incredible efforts. He doesn't score many but I get the feeling he might be in the mood to smash one in again very soon...

One of our steady and reliable players.

Biggest improvement required is to cut down on the yellow cards but not to let it detract from his tenacity.

Awesome player and best captain we've had since Matt Holland - sorry Luke!

Morsy is certainly good enough currently for the Premier League. Only doubt about him is that the years might catch up with him soon

He is an absolutely immense player and an ambassador for the club. Love his support for Palestine as well.

This guy really is a maverick, a real ‘Top Gun’ in the division.
