Maybe he’s the problem. He’s the coach after all. Looking at his Wikipedia page, he resigned from being manager of Limerick In 2014 then joined Aston Villa as U23s coach before joining Wolves under PL in 2016. Hardly a glittering cv.
Our play seems random and without any obvious pattern or strategy. Plus we never seem to use set pieces in a way that suggests we plan or practice for a particular outcome. The players just seem to play as individuals rather than as a unit. All very frustrating. Not much has really changed since Hurst really.
From where I was sat I made a point of looking at him today. Was a fair distance away but his body language didn’t look great. Spent the whole game talking to Lee O’Neill left early before half time and full time. Looked generally agitated and pissed off. I wonder if he’s considering letting go of PL.
Genuine question Phil, but is all this getting you down like it is the rest of us? I feel for you as we can take a step away from the forum for a bit of sanity but you have to put up with this dross day in, day out.
I just want to say thanks for all that you do. You do a great job and for all of our sakes, I hope that things improve on and off the pitch soon because it’s getting hard to take.
I have previously suggested that we get Burley back as manager (prior to PH and PL appointments.) The general opinion on here was that he's yesterday's man, football has moved on and also there were suggestions of issues with drinking.
But I still think he would do a better job given the resources and players we have at the moment. His teams had an identity. A system. And they played positive, exciting football. He gave youth a chance and also seemed to be able to pick a player.
He's local. He's an ex player. An ex manager (Ex manager of the year in fact). I know he got us relegated, but he also got us promoted and into Europe. If I was ME I'd give the guy a chance.
