|Evans / Hurst culpability and does it matter|
at 12:15 1 Jan 2019
Having been thinking about our predicament, and the degree of culpability, the way I see it is this. The appointment of Hurst seemed a good one - the vast majority of Town fans were supportive, and there was a lot of pre-season excitement, so I dont think Evans can be blamed for teh initial appointment. However, Hurst was naive to believe he could shed all our best players and recruit a team form lower leagues, and as fans we were beginning to get worried before the season kicked off. As the owner, Evans should have also been very worried, but obviously it suited his penny pinching approach, and clearly in the interviews for the managers job, he discussed the very limited budget. That is clearly why Lampard walked away. Hurst told ME what he wanted to hear, so the fact that Hurst's gamble didn't work out is largely attributable to ME.
Does it matter? As the culpability is largely with Evans, who is still in charge, then yes it bleeding well does. We are really now reaping the consequences of a decade of under investment and poor judgement calls from ME, and it is now time that he accepted his responsibility and not hide behind Hurst, Keane, Jewell or anyone else and support Lambert in the re-building of the club.

and above West brom, Bristol City and Stoke, 3 of the next 4 we meet. Anyone saying we are down is just being melodramatic, there are 29 matches still to play.

What a difference this team is form the one thast played under Hurst. Disappointing that we conceded the late goal, but it is a team where everyone seems to want the ball, and knows what their job is. Lots of solid performances, Spence a bit suspect, thought Chalobah looked very good in the middle. Freddie excellent. 1st half was like watching, well, not quite Brazil, but it was a fabulous 1st half performance.

Immense. Was a fantastic lone striker performance, always a threat, but also dropped into midfield to help out , made teh first goal, scored the second. Great first touch. Delighted for him.
|I don't want to hear Hurst bigging up Boro before the game on Tuesday|

like he did against Brentford, Villa etc.
It's about time PH manned up and realised that our history is better than all but 3 or 4 in this division. We have won more than Boro, Brentford, and all the others with exceptions of Forest, Leeds and Villa, possibly Blackburn.
Why do we have to speak and act as though we are intimidated by clubs like Boro, or Brentford? If it is form he's worried about, that is up to him to get us playing better and improve our form, but please don't roll over before it starts.
