|Lambert: Really Pleased With the Lads in Training|
The comments about the younger players are really important. We have all realised for along while there was not the £ Millions to spend and Mr E having put significant money into the academy had every right to expect some return for his investment. I don't believe MM did enough to promote youth, we thought PH was going to do it and were wrong. Now PL looks like he is up for the youth revelution we have waited for, for several seasons.
Anticipation is a wonderful thing
|Evans Outlines Vision for New Era Under Hurst|
This probably says more about Mr Evans disatisfaction with MM than anything else we have heard. Mr Evans is putting a lot of trust in Paul Hurst no doubt he will have someone looking over events as they are revealed rather than awaiting fan annoyance
|How Mick McCarthy Accelerated His Own Departure|
Thanks for that Harry, the only thing I would say is that what you put in your last but one paragraph is pertinent to the whole MM scenario but, what did surprise me is that he didn't turn sooner.
|Wolves Linked With Town Skipper|
Bringing in 2 front men and loosing a defender with no attention being paid to the parlous C midfield seems like a strange way to improve ITFC
|Time for Mexit?|
It depends on what is condsidered to be 'disappointing' but by & large I agree with the bloggers point slough I am not sure that replacign the manager just yet is the right course of action.
Those of us who have been supporting Town for many years always expected the next season to be better than the last indicating a progressive move both in terms of player quality and finishing position. In Sir Alfs days we were spoiled going from Div 3 south to the top of British football in a remarkably short time.
It seems a natural progression that, having qualified for the play-offs & bieng beaten by the enemy, the next move would have been to improve the squad to not only compete but to win. This has been relatively successful in as much as Towns away performance has not been good = 34 points from 23 away games.
It is at PR Town have failed not just in not winning games= only ONE more point was won at home than what was reaped on the road- it has been the performance of the players that has been the real disappointment.
This IS down to the way in which the team has been selected, lined up & substituted, it is not all the players or, th Owners fault. The Owner may control the purse strings but, what goes on, on the field of play must be down to team selection & tactics.
I didn't get carried away with Towns performance V the enemy, the game at PR was just won by them but at their place some of Towns'stars' didn't turn up and regrettable as it is it was, in reality one of Towns worst away performances with just ONE attempt on target attempt on the enemy goal & that was Tommy S goal.
So disappointing yes, for all the reasons in the original blog but, the most important thing must be to improve the home performances PR must no longer be a place where the opposition can come to & play the game in Towns half.
Best thing I've seen on TWTD for some time, keep it up
